A webcam: It is imperative that you have a working webcam – I’d even go as far as telling you not to bother with online dating if you don’t have one.It’s the only real way of verifying someone’s identity prior to meeting up in person.Then voicemail mp3s sent by email (because we were still too chicken to talk face-to-face, in real time). Fact: If you meet someone you can talk to every day and every night and still find the energy to email five times a day and not get sick of each other, then that’s probably a great sign.
There are a bunch of online dating sites to choose from, and you are free to sign up on them all (if you can afford it).
When I got into online dating, I wasn’t really looking for a husband – I was just looking for a pen pal.
I didn’t want to rush into the foray of real-life dating – I wanted to meet someone who was OK with the idea of building a solid foundation, and I chose my pen pals well.
That was enough time to make him realize that I was the one, the one to make him go back to the States, sell all his possessions, quit his job, and come back to be with me. So now that we’re all starry-eyed and hope-filled, onto the serious stuff.
After a full year of adventures visiting new places in the Philippines and Asia, I returned the favor and moved back to the U. For instance, you immediately need to ask yourself what kind of relationship are you willing to get into.
Just for shits and giggles, I proposed an in-real-life meetup when I found myself in the U. If you’re dating for free on a website, have the decency to cough up a bit of dough for a webcam – it’s a good investment, trust me.
