October 30, 2011 - Kathleen Palumbo
I see the commercials. I hear the “success stories.” I know in today’s world it’s widely used and accepted. Yet to me, online dating websites still carry a certain taboo.

As the same woman who preached the danger of strangers to my own children, how could I ever consider a technological meet and greet?

Not currently “on the market,” I needn’t worry for my own sake, but I implore my sisters out there to be uber-cautious when considering the option. Some food for thought…

-SWM could have numerous meanings, like perhaps, sinister, wicked, monster seeks a friends at first partner with the option of a possible long-term relationship.

-That kindly man who tells you he so enjoys communicating via the web may have only recently been granted internet access at Leavenworth.

-“Prefers to get to know you online before meeting,” could actually mean that his doting wife of 17 years has no inkling of his double life, nor that he carries a machete in his trunk.

-And finally, because there’s no age limit on naïve, for those with a previous marriage that included children, “Loves kids,” can make him the equivalent of a modern day John Wayne Gacy.

I don't really think there is such a thing as "looking for Mr. Right;" but rather that you need to recognize him when he's standing right in front of you.

My advice? Let fate intervene. Continue your usual day to day, and have a little faith; you never know who will turn the corner next in the grocery store. As for the aforementioned; I would be remiss if I didn't admit to having recently watched a "Criminal Minds" marathon.
