Matt and I were together for 10 wonderful years - met in 1998, married in 2002, until his untimely death on November 15, 2008. We have two beautiful, healthy children - Jacob (born 5/04) and Sydney (born 5/07)... the most precious gifts he could have ever given me.

Online Dating WARNING

Ladies, (and I'm sure this could apply to men just the same), if you are involved in the online dating thing - whether it's Match, E Harmony, Plenty of Fish, Zoosk, Christian Mingle, Tinder, etc., MAKE SURE you get the person's FULL NAME before you agree to meet with them. You would be surprised how many people lie about their actual name, age, and other important (and pretty basic) details.

If they're going to lie about this shit right from the beginning, then chances are they are just a plain liar. Do not get involved, and then block them.

Google, google, google. There is nothing wrong with that. It's not an invasion of privacy before agreeing to meet with someone. It's a responsible first step before putting yourself in potential danger. Please heed my advice. Giving them the benefit of the doubt only prolongs the inevitable.

I met my husband thru on-line dating; we're been married 9 years in July.

Anytime your dating you should be smart about it. You can meet a stalker, murderer, nut case anywhere - even in church....

On-line dating isn't any worse than having your best friend set you up on a blind date.

Online dating can be as risky because you will never know that the person you are dating is sincere with you or not. You cannot also sure if the owner of the account is a real person or just playing you to get money from you.
