4. The Truth Factor

While it is very possible to “catfish” or otherwise lie to someone without being detected, a lot of people are more honest online than they are in person.

Think about it;

have you ever felt like you couldn't be yourself around certain people?

Have you had to “put on a happy face” and be polite when you feel anything but?

This isn't a problem online;

you can be as “real” as you want, when you want.

This isn't saying you get to be mean so much as that you don't have to walk on eggshells as much.

but there's so many red flags that can be brought up, and it's hard to tell the difference between truth or lie on the Internet. I have multiple experiences with online dating. And I've stopped today.

There was a situation where I've met this guy online, he claims to being single for 4 years straight. Him and I had a few things in common and I approached him and started dating in a slow pace. Him and I talked about meeting up, he said in a year cuz rushing things can do damage to the relationship. So I took his word for it. Never brought up the subject cuz I promised a year so I did. The only problem about online relationships is the non-physical factor… there has been multiple situations where my ex and I argued about how I would treat him in person and expects me to be with him when he's sick while being miles away?… it's the problems with these factors that when it becomes a serious relationship in a short time things will NOT work out. The guy who I was with was cheating on a friend of mine who I've just recently talked to, she experienced the same pain and abuse I have. I was not impressed when I found out he was in a relationship with her while he was hanging out with me then dumps her. It's that vicious cycle I've experienced before he started hanging out with his new friend who is a girl more often trying to message me to see how I was doing. I've dumped him with a bunch of reasons: Too insecure making assumptions, accusing me for cheating, getting into fights about minor things, forcing me to say "I love you", hanging around with this other chick for hours non-stop, not believing my words, and zero trust, and refused to buy a webcam so I can see him while he sees me on the cam. It's nice to meet somebody online
