4 Questions to Answer If You Are Falling in Love Online


4 Questions to Answer If You Are Falling in Love Online
Don't let technology glitch your perspective. You deserve the same respect dating online and off.

3. Can you go public or are you living in private? If time has passed and you have established you are falling for each other, then you should be able to update your relationship statuses, be friends on Facebook, follow each other on Twitter and be socially involved with his online life. However, if he resists including you as a part of his world, this is a red flag. His feelings for you should not have to be a secret. If he is telling YOU he loves you, he should be able to tell the world he loves you.

4. Do you act like a couple? Do you send each other photos from places you go and talk about your friends and family? Sharing your daily life is a crucial step to getting to know someone and letting them into your heart. If your conversations are made up of mostly phone sex and baby talk, you aren’t falling in love, you are living in lust. Know the difference. If the only thing you have in common is a high sex drive, it may be good for the short term, but in the long run, you haven’t really gotten to know each other.  You should be able to share your day with him and have conversations about your life – and his. If he is only talking to you about sex and the things he would like to do when he sees you, this is all he is interested in, period. If you want more out of a relationship, let him know.
