Hi Kevin! Thanks for the response :) Yes I do agree re getting to know the person as best as you can. But in online dating, it’s also getting to know the person “in person” as quickly as you can. Meaning, there shouldn’t be too long a time between the first online contact and the first IRL meetup. Else we end up spending too much time making assumptions of the person’s character and building up illusions about them just based off their texts. And.. like you said, by then there’d be too much time and energy invested over something/someone you aren’t sure is real or not.
