I loved our little chat on Monday about facebook and relationships via the interwebs. I'm a little more than embarrassed to admit that I am no stranger to online dating. I first started when I was 18 because I only had 1 college class, still lived at home, and worked at a place with few opportunities to meet people. I haven't done it in a very long time.
I think the biggest lesson I learned through it all that people are liars. Most people who tend to build online relationships do not tell the truth about themselves somehow thinking the person on the other end wont ever find out.
Of course there will always be success stories, but I know because of the experiences I've had I will do the best I can to monitor my children and teach them to be literate in all things social media. As awesome as things have worked out for me in meeting someone randomly online (we didn't meet through any online dating site or anything)it's important to be cautious of all the creepers out there.
