Dos and donts of facebook dating

We have been increasingly hearing cases of extortion, blackmail, sedation, house confinement, rape, and robbery, especially post SC judgement of upholding 377 in Dec 2013.

So here are some Dos and Donts to follow when you meet strangers.

Facebook can be a great way to break the ice and to get to know someone in a more casual way.

It can also be great for guys who are shy or who don’t feel completely comfortable approaching women they like in real life.

You have to keep it professional at the office, but your private, personal time is a whole different story.

On a separate note, spending all day all night together can be too much of a good thing.

Just don’t spend the entire time talking about your great new guy!

Many of the queer community members often meet unknown people for dates, chats and more.

It is baffling how people can think it’s ok to show up to a date post gym-workout or with bad body odour. And while you’re there, go ahead and brush your teeth because good hygiene can take you from ‘just a drink’ to dinner. For example, avoid asking if your date would “wanna root” [yes, this was a genuine question for one poor woman! Sex on a first date is great, but never an expectation.

If you’re talking more than Kanye West, shut up and ask your date a question! And leave it in your bag because phones belong on tables as much as horses belong on the treadmill. Sure you might have had some bad dating stories or a horror ex, but complain about them to your friends or your shrink.

Every company is different and you need to be sure you aren’t violating any corporate regulations that could jeopardize your job and negatively impact your professional career.

Many organizations have no-fraternization policies, so you need to decide if dating the guy is worth the risk of getting fired, if that is the case.
