Love online


I am writing this journal to ask if it is possible to get someone genuine online for any serious relationship. There are so many networking websites out there that people post their profiles and get their match. Can anyone tell me if they are real or just for fun because there is a friend of mine who got hooked up that way in one of the sites and am fearing she might get disappointed, are there genuine and serious people out there and how can one know if what they purport to be is true. Please help me out.

I think its all about luck.

I think its all about luck. People's stories varies. Some people meet the love of their lives online while for others it turns out to be an absolute disaster. My advice to you is be very careful, make wise decisions, do not put yourself completely out there and do not reveal personal infos about yourself online. Like i always say ,you but be anyone and anything online. They are all kinds of people prowling the internet.

Yeah, I guess all I can give

Yeah, I guess all I can give on advise just like fatwaz says, you can only be careful.
Every cite has a sorta vibe, or what it is about.
Some cites are about dating, some are for fooling around, while some are for "serious" people only.
Ask around, browse through all cites, shop around.
Be careful, because even on the internet people are still people, and they are many different types.
Your safety is important.
Well, see ya around.
