Are you here to play, explore, hide or fantasize? You can be or do anything you want when you are in cyberspace. You don't have to be afraid of honesty or fantasy. This is a safe environment to try some new things, or be someone you've always wanted to be, without the consequences of reality.
Do you really know what you are looking for? Have you put into writing what you DO and DO NOT want in you next relationship? If you have not done this, then stop NOW! Take some time and write down your top 10 DO's and DON'TS.
This will help you decide how to answer questions, write an essay, or how to post your profile.
When you check the divorced box on questionnaires, think about it. Are you REALLY divorced, or are you separated, alienated from your spouse, wishing you were, wanting to be, or really, really divorced, with a decree in your hand?
This is a serious point and if you are still married and living with your spouse, the consequences of pretending to be divorced may become your reality. If you are just playing and love your spouse then keep your marriage a priority, and the online fantasy and playing secondary.
Is there a little secret you've been hiding for years, months, or days that you are wanting to *come out of the closet* with? Then this is the perfect platform.
With the INTERNET, you have access to thousands of web sites that fit your interests or new way of seeing things. It is safe, risk free and harmless. Remember, you do not have to tell anybody who you really are, where you live, what you do.
You have the control and the power. DON'T EVER GIVE ANY INFORMATION OUT THAT YOU DO NOT WANT ANYONE ELSE TO KNOW, because things just happen to make the rounds on the INTERNET.
If you're single and have been looking for your soul mate all your life, then this is the perfect place to be. You have an unlimited arena from which to *shop*.
You have the ability to talk to people all over the world, in a safe environment, in the comfort of your own home. Could it get any better? Take your time, weed out the majority and keep the ones who make you feel comfortable and that you find you have a lot in common with. There's no time frame. Don't make any rash decisions.
This is your future we're talking about.
Distance seems to be the Number One concern when you meet a person online who you think could be the *One*. Within the first 3-4 emails, find out if either one is willing to relocate if it gets to that point in the relationship. Are you a person who wants to be with someone more than every other week? This will determine just how much distance you can handle in your relationship.
NOTE: WITH ALL THE NEW WAYS OF FINDING OUT WHO PEOPLE ARE THROUGH E-MAIL ADDRESSES...DON'T GIVE OUT YOUR LAST NAME UNTIL YOU FEEL IT IS COMFORTABLE FOR YOU TO DO SO.
There are those who go online and try to see how many dates or short-term relationships they can handle. Those people are called PLAYERS and are the same in the real world. You will run into these while trying to find someone you would like to know more about. Remember these players are both sexes!
