I don't normally watch daytime tv, unless there is a disaster to keep track off. I was visiting some country cousins last week and they do watch daytime tv. One of the gals was channel flipping and I heard, "Next on Dr. Phil, helping a woman get over her fears of cyberdating." Or something to that effect. Dr. Phil and Cyberdating, well I couldn't resist.
I didn't get to see the whole show but the gist of it was this, that cyberdating, like any dating is a legit way to meet someone if you use some common sense and caution when you go about it. It isn't just for losers and cheaters, etc.
Hey, that's what I've been saying all along! Just think, Dr. Phil and I are perfectly in sync on this. Here's a link to the show if you'd like to check it out: http://drphil.com/shows/show/740/
There are hints about profiles and pictures, etc., all the stuff I cover in my e-book on the subject: http://todaybooks.com/product_info.php?products_id=123
What I love about cyberdating is that you can get right to the point. You're both there looking for some fun or a date or a life partner. You can check someone's profile and see what they're into. If you want to avoid smokers, or vegans - two of my pets peeves - you can do so. If you're looking for someone who likes to kayak or attend dog shows or play bridge, voila, there they are at the push of a button.
And, one of the great things is, you don't have to be perfect. If you aren't the kind of person who can sail into a bar or party and turn heads you can play Cyrano and win people over with your words. Also, you never know what is going on brainwise with one of those head turners. At least on the internet you know someone is literate and can use a computer!
Hint: if your typing isn't very good, practice with an online typing program. Nothing makes you look more like a loser than not being able to type coherent sentences at a reasonable speed.
