What are the warning signs and how can you avoid becoming a virtual cuckold?
It’s a truly modern love story. Boy meets girl online. Boy ogles girl. Girl Googles boy.
Girl passes visual check, boy passes criminal check. They meet, date, and fall madly in love. Then, after a satisfactory waiting period, his-and-her credit checks, and an ironclad pre-nup agreement, boy and girl live happily every after.
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.
