Beware of Virtual Relationships!

Virtual Relationships

What is a virtual relationship? The Urban Dictionary explains it as a relationship where people are not physically present but communicate exclusively using online, texting, or other electronic communication devises. Wikipedia uses the term internet relationship. A relationship between people who have met online, and in many cases know each other only via the Internet.

It further explains this virtual relationship is sustained for a certain amount of time, just as in a person-to-person relationship. The major difference is that a virtual relationship is sustained via computer or online services, and the individuals may not ever meet. This relationship can be between people in different states, countries, continents, or even people who live in the same area.

Technology has made it possible for more virtual relationships. More people are looking for their future spouses on online dating sites. These sites compete and have large advertising budgets to persuade you to look for a mate on their websites. But I am not referring to those sites. I am talking about the virtual relationships that are pen-pal like  . . .  a relationship based solely on words or pictures. You met through the internet somehow and now you communicate sometimes daily via text, email, or through social media and have never met nor may never meet in person.

JUST BEWARE!! You don’t know who is on the other end of that communication. The profile may be fake, the pictures may be fake, because the person is fake. There are people who make their living playing on your emotions while robbing you out of your money and sanity! Not everyone is truthful nor looking out for your best interest. It is their job to deceive, lie, and steal all you have and then move on to the next victim!
