Keeping Safe Online
I`ve noticed a larger than average number of bad online dating stories hitting the news of late discussing court cases related to online daters who abused the system and cheated someone out of money, sex, intimacy, household items, or more nefarious things I`d rather not go into here. For instance, the Brisbane Times ran an article about 47-year old Des Campbell, a single-parent widower who claimed to be a childless divorcee to seduce dozens of women into sexual relationships, and who was questioned at the inquest of his wife`s death. Although there is no way to keep yourself absolutely safe when meeting people - whether from an online dating site or a random stranger on the street - there are some tactics I`d highly recommend to anyone wanting to avoid these kinds of situations, and they all have to do with timing. When meeting someone initially from an online dating site, many people wait too long to meet someone they feel a spark with. It`s a simple concept really: the longer you wait to meet someone, the less real-world information you have about them. Body language, the tone of their voice and chemistry are all removed from the decision-making process, and in its place an element of fantasy comes into play. Instead, if you meet someone online you feel connected to, try and meet them within the week of first interacting for a quick first date.

For the details (as well as my in-depth answer) take a peek at Why Can`t She Decide Between a Casual Fling or Something More? In the meantime, what would you recommend to Scott, a gentleman who can`t fathom why a woman wouldn`t choose a long-term and stable relationship over an ongoing fling?
