What the Robert Hilborn story taught me about online relationships
As a person who avidly believes love comes from many different ways (internet, cafes, restaurants) I can’t help but analyze the Robert Hilborn story for what it is, and what it taught me about online relationships.
I’ve never been one to ‘judge’ those who meet each other online, and then attempt to form some other kind of emotional connection offline; however one should after cases like this specific one be a little more weary of the person they are conversing with online.
Who somebody is online, is completely different than they are in person.
In a nutshell, the domestic violence story taught me that not everybody can be trusted especially those you may meet on online dating sites. The things a person may say in one of those conversations, aren’t always the same that you may hear in person.
Better yet, the behavior showcased during an ‘online conversation’ is from a completely different aspect than what one might believe when actually agreeing to meet in person; which is where a person (in this case gay men) should always set boundaries no matter who the person is, or how much you ‘think’ you may trust them.
