It seems that Summer is a good time to start fresh. And for some, that means finding a new relationship.
Although doing so is fraught with pitfalls and mishaps that could only happen on Pandora, millions of people summon up their courage and write a personality profile in hope of meeting a potential new mate. The drive to connect deeply with another human being is something so ingrained in many of us that even the fact of our difficult pasts will not deter us from this quest.
Once you have posted a picture and sent a few “winks,” your next adventure will be getting (or sending) an email to a likely candidate whose pic and profile catches your eye and imagination. The key here is not to get overly excited before you actually have met someone. I’ve heard of people falling in love with a picture, and you need to remember that not everyone is honest, and sometimes the pictures people post are a decade old.
Honesty on the Internet can be elusive. Some people post their age and then confess in their write-up that they lied about how old they were so they’d show up in your search (and, of course, they look and feel years younger than they are), which may be true, but starting off with a lie can’t insure a good future. I recommend being truthful about everything because the person you date will find out sooner or later.
