Hey my loves,
I’ve been recently wondering whether modern technology has changed the way we find love. In this day and age we have apps such as tinder, Yellow and a vast majority of dating sites. Not to mention social media such as Facebook, Instagram and twitter. These days we don’t even need to leave our front door to meet someone. It’s all there on our laptops, smart phones and tablets. I find that pretty amazing but also pretty scary. You have the ability to talk to anyone you like without knowing a single thing about them and in some cases even how they look.
This topic is going to have pro’s and con’s for both. The internet can be dangerous and if gotten into the wrong hands can be deadly. That’s why I urge you to be safe on the internet. Don’t accept a friend request from someone with no mutual friends and a profile picture of a car. It’s bound to be dodgy. Don’t meet someone without letting someone else know where you are. You’re meeting a complete stranger so someone needs to know your whereabouts. Make sure you’re In a public setting where other people are. Be safe.
But there Is also pro’s, social media can be amazing for meeting new people. I’ve made friends through Instagram. twitter and Facebook. I’ve also met my boyfriend through Facebook. We’ve been together nearly six months and now live together. I have a very happy life with him. I know other people who have even married someone they met online. It can be a truly amazing and beautiful thing if done properly.
I guess what I’m saying is yes, it is acceptable to meet someone online. But be safe too, be smart and savvy. Be safe. But most of all have fun, meet new people and build new friendships.
