We’ve all heard online dating horror stories that extol the tales of going out with a guy who was handsome and funny… only to find out he was married with 6 kids. There’s also the one about that smart, cute girl who actually had been convicted of numerous felonies. So it’s understandable that we want to do a little checking around about the person we are planning to meet. But in an age where information is so readily available, how much resarch is too much?
People say they want to meet someone oragnically while they’re shopping for organic peaches or running along the lakefront glistening just so… but when the opportunity arises to be introduced to a great new person the investigation ensues.
How many Instagram followers does he have? Is that a cat sitting behind her on the chair to the left in that Facebook picture? It looks like he was in band in high school and I really hated band.
When we meet people while out playing darts at our favorite bar we just strike up conversations and hope the lighting is OK. That’s the fun part! We should enjoy getting to know someone’s sense of humor, passions and little quirks. The things that make us unique and special can’t be captured in photos. When you start to lose the humanity of dating you never have a chance to fall in love with his goofy laugh or the way she tilts her head when she’s really contemplating something. You never get the chance to hear the love in his voice when his mom calls or see the compassionate she has for the homeless guy you walk by.
It might be a good idea to take a chance and leave your CIA aspirations on the backburner for a while. You never know who you might have overlooked because you hated their Linkedin photo.
