I’m from a pretty small town and want to try online dating, but don’t want everyone to know I’m doing it. I’m also worried that I’ll be matched with people I already know in real life and it could be awkward for both of us. Should I avoid trying it out? What should I do?
It’s no secret that online dating comes with its fair share of skeptics and doubters. Many singles avoid signing up for the medium; with the mindset that online dating couldn’t possibly work. Rather than signing up and enjoying the benefits of a busy and fulfilled dating life, these same people opt to continue on the paths that they are currently on, hoping that one day the right person will come along.

Ask any online dater if they “Google” their online matches, and the answer is frequently yes — or, “Why, what have you heard?” Thanks to the magic of Google.com, you can learn that your date-to-be was winner of the National Peanut Brittle Eating Competition, was recently married in lovely ceremony at the Kiwanis Club, or is currently serving five-to-10 for impersonating a real estate agent.
