Internet dating and fish Freewedcam
When I was fishing with my dad, he was as gentle as possible when he removed the hook from the fish's mouth so that it wouldn't be permanently injured after he threw it back.
In the online dating ocean, use courtesy when you're telling someone you're not interested.
This is the first rule for online fishing: Don't use bad bait.
Certainly, there are innumerable "fish" in cyberspace, where millions of singles converge to meet daily.
Your job is to maintain a Christ-like attitude and treat everyone who approaches you with respect.
If you don't share their enthusiasm to connect, simply write back and say, "I appreciate your note, but you live too far away," "I'd like to meet someone closer to my age," or "I already have children and I noticed that you don't want to be a stepparent." Short, but polite responses while you're "throwing someone back" are often appreciated.
One of my male friends has made it a goal to respond to everyone who writes him, even if it's just to say, "No thanks." At first he was uncomfortable telling women that he didn't want to correspond, but now he is amazed at how many appreciate his thoughtfulness.
After all, everyone who has dated online has been ignored and no one likes it.Of course, I was thankful that I hadn't shared too much too soon.
