“Everyone tells me I look at least 10 years younger than my chronological age!”


How often have you heard that before?!


Is that license to lie about your age when Internet dating? Since most people, after a certain


age, lie about their age in person anyway I guess it’s not terrible as long as your pictures are


current. Unfortunately, cyber-dating has gotten a bad rap, rightfully so, since most people put


very inaccurate pictures….like who is going to notice I’m 10 years older, 40 pounds heavier


and going bald. According to Huffington Post recently, approximately half the people online do lie,


both men and women.


 


Here’s the good news. For every 5 bad matches you meet there will be a good one. So don’t


give up, I haven’t and have some great stories both good and bad. Rather, have fun meeting


and learning about new people. I know lots of success stories. Just be wary and smart about


your expectations until someone pleasantly surprises you. Don’t spend too much time emailing,


texting or talking on the phone before you actually meet. You could end up exaggerating in your


mind how great this person is leading to further disappointment.


 


As texting has it’s own language so does Internet dating. I polled several friends dating online


and came up with the following list of hidden meanings that are sure to make you take things a


little more lightly online which may could be just what you need to meet the ONE!


Have fun reading this and please respond when done with any lingo you have experienced


and/or use online. We’ll create our own Merriam Webster.
