Online dating humor comes a s a result of today's dating activities on the Internet. Although the the goals are usually for serious results, the online pursuits are not short of humor.
The "Online dating humor' is not foreign to me. As a widower I entered the online dating game with a humorous state of mind reflecting my natural humor slanted personality. I adopted the ID of 'Humormeister' and started hunt for a partner with a sense of humor and other compatible interests.
Luck would have it, that I became interested and started communicating with a divorced female member whose ID was 'Fun Diamond.' Her profile did not include a picture. With a picture requested and sent, we met in a neutral location, and the rest is history. We've been happily married for 6 years.
Although there is a lot of humor and fun you can experience in online dating, Online Dating Humor is not he only thing you find online. Everyone going online to find a partner should be very careful with divulging too much initial information about themselves, particularly about finances.
Although the online dating can fun and humorous, like everywhere else in today's society there a always some people who have more devious goals in mind. Do some background checking on potential partners and make sure that they are who they say they are and can be trusted.
