Google Chastity: Resist the Urge to Stalk Your Dates | Social Buzz Pros
In the past couple of decades, cell phones and the Internet have changed the dating and relationship game. But is it for better or worse?
Tinder, Match.com, and e-harmony are just a few examples of dating sites today. Though different, each allows individuals to connect with people based on similar interests or even just their looks. After being “matched” you can do a cursory search on your prospective lover. The results will, almost always, not be what you wanted to find.
We’re calling it “Google Chastity” while others are calling it “The New Abstinence.” There are plenty of reasons to resist the urge to stalk search a potential love interest and here are our top three reasons:
#1 You Could Slip Up
It’s natural to be curious about your potential love interest, but bring that curiosity on the actual date. Researching and acquiring extreme amounts of information can be downright creepy, especially if you happen to slip up and mention something that you only could have known from looking at all three of their social media profiles. A quick spot of “Googling” can also fuel the flames of obsession. So, pump the breaks and take part in “Google Chastity.”
#2 Nobody is Perfect
It’s been said that there is aGoogle law: if you search your date online, you’re bound to find something you don’t like. In a world where we are constantly looking for the “perfect partner” it only takes one unflattering photo or one suspicious tweet to put us off. As the saying goes, “if you go out looking for trouble, you’re probably going to find it.”
With 81% of people misrepresentingthemselves online, you’re probably only getting one side of their story. We can control which photos are posted and which ones we are tagged in. We can delete and add friends with the click of a button. We can control our identities, to some extent, online. Let go of the sense control that you think comes with searching someone. Resist the impulse to snoop behind your date’s back!
We understand the other side of the story – that you can protect yourself from creepers by Googling the potential suitors. However, if you thought someone was creepy, would you go out with him or her in the first place? Our advice, more times than not, you can get off Google, let go of Facebook, and leave Twitter out of it. Resist the urge to stalk your love interests and give dating with a blind spot a try!
