Dangers Of Internet Dating

from the watch-out,-it-can-kill dept

A guy who caused a huge train wreck in the UK apparently stayed up all night the night before chatting with a woman he met through an online dating service. He spoke with her on the phone and was also online for much of the night according to phone and internet records presented to the court. I’m going to show this story to the next person who suggests I try internet dating (inevitably someone who’s married or in a serious relationship and sick of hearing my stories of awful dates). It’s evil, I tell you… evil.

Horrible that someone would let the internet take over they lives. To not get any sleep before work. But it is hard not to get so involved with the people you chat with. This is what everyone is doing, now a days. Its the coolest thing. But we don’t stop and think how it can control us and our lives and take time of our lives. Sad that something like this happen, but maybe people will learn from this.
