Love Online: A Special Case for Privacy

Most of us who are not part of a couple are fascinated by personal advertisements. Whether they are online or in the local newspaper, they attract and repel us at the same time. We read the ads of those seeking us and of those like us who are seeking. We read the former to see if someone wants us. We read the latter to see if we can get ideas for our potential ad, or we read them with the superior knowledge that we would never, ever resort to meeting people this way.

Whether we seek or are seeking, it is important to remember that giving out unnecessarily identifying information to people we “meet” this way is a really bad idea. Use a fake name. Do not give out your phone number. If you choose to meet someone in person that you first met online, be sure it is in a public place and that someone knows where you are and when you should be back.
