I am a firm believer that trust is earned. Therefore – you cannot truly trust a person with whom you’ve only exchanged a handful of messages online and have never even had a phone conversation.
But that is exactly what a man expected of me on a dating site. I very clearly stated on my profile that I do background checks on a person before I meet him. This guy must have thought I was joking because when I suggested we meet and I asked for his last name – he told me goodbye. He said trust is important to him.
It was quite mind boggling.
