In one of my latest blogs, I talked about how to potentially meet people and how those of us in our 40s and 50s are in a transitional period. Meaning, we are used to meeting people through introduction or at local neighborhood places. But with the internet and social media being so popular, many turn to online dating sites.

As we hear many success stories of those marrying their internet connection, we also hear horror stories. Let’s face it, you can have happy endings or horror endings no matter how you meet someone, but the internet is especially scary these days.

It’s a very touchy subject because some may want to hold the owners of the online dating sites responsible for any mishaps. I had one of my own horror stories where I met someone online who became a stalker, and I immediately wanted to blame the dating site for this. I did contact the dating site customer relations to let them know what happened. Supposedly they banned the psycho from their site.
