Is he really single?

Probably the biggest problem in internet dating is the volume of married people posing as singles. With the net being available at work, and everyone carrying cell phones, this farce can go on for months, if not years, without anyone finding out. Weekend visits coincide with "business trips." How can you be sure?

When you begin to be serious about an Internet relationship, you normally share basic details about each other - your home address, your family details, the work you do. Write the person love letters to their house. Look them up on and give them a call to say hello. Arrange to meet their family and friends. It would have to be an extremely elaborate hoax for even family and friends to accept you and hide the existence of another person in your partnerīs life.
