Decent Essays

In today's society, most people use the internet for everything, this is a testimony shared by Sister Desiree on how she finds herself a partner using the online dating. She wrote, a couple years ago a friend of mine nudged me to go on tinder, a social networking site, after dating an acquaintance that didn't go so well. I made a profile thinking it would just be for laughs, when I ended up matching with the guy who worked at my gym. We always had small talks and seemed genuinely interested in each other but neither of us had the nerve to ask the other out.

3. If someone sends you a message on an internet dating site, and you’re NOT interested, DON’T reply. Sending a reply will probably entice the person to keep sending you more messages. But if you do, don’t say something stupid like you’re already dating someone. It’s unbelievable, if that’s really your situation, then why are you on the dating site?

So, when your friends ask you if they can use your membership to log onto a dating site that you belong to, tell them to sign up for their own free membership.

It sounds like basic common sense, but intentionally posting a city, state or country where a person doesn’t live does happen.
