Do You Know Who Your Family Member is Dating?

1 Sep

By: Alice Curt

When someone in your family starts dating, you want to know if he/she is making the right choice and their safety is not compromised. But with technology enabled modern dating, that can be difficult to guarantee.

Online Dating
Nowadays, it’s not uncommon for people to meet and form relationships online. In fact, Esquire mentioned that young adults and 55-65 year olds are the most active users of online dating services. As this convenient way of meeting people started to take off, new dangers have also appeared. There are people who create fake profiles to scam others. Harassment is also a real risk as well as identity theft or fraud. These potential scenarios make it hard not to ask about a family member’s dating life. That’s why Relationships-411 previously listed apps that guardians should know about.

What To Do
In spite of our protective nature, it’s important that you give your loved one enough space. Reality-based dating shows have influenced us to be curious of other people’s romantic lives. The Bachelor, for instance, is still running strong after 22 seasons. The British series Love Island is another program with the same goal, as contestants in the show aim to find romance. Ladbrokes notes that the latest season’s most loved couple are Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer. They are a perfect example of having limits on prying into a family member’s relationship. Dani’s father, actor Danny Dyer, anonymously asked about the private details of his daughter’s relationship on the radio. Thankfully, Dani didn’t kiss and tell. If shows like the aforementioned still pique our interest in strangers’ dating lives, it’s not hard to understand why people would want to know about their loved ones’ relationships, especially if it will help keep them safe.

US News suggests striking a balance between talking and listening, making sure not to impose your own feelings on your loved one. Trust their judgment and that you’ve taught them well about the dangers of modern dating. Unless the person they’re dating is outright putting them in harm’s way, just be supportive of who they choose to be with.

Question of the Day

29 Mar

Would you leave your dream job and move to be with your true love?

I almost did this in my twenties; leave my dream job in sports and entertainment and move across the country to be with my College Sweetheart. I got cold feet and continued to pursue my career. The relationship didn’t work out.

Tamar Braxton is Quitting Music to Save Her Marriage

25 Sep

Songstress, Tamar Braxton is reportedly quitting music to save her marriage to Music Executive, Vincent Herbert.

As a married woman, I understand and respect her decision. Quite often in marriage, there are sacrifices that have to be made to make the union work. None of us fully knows what has happened behind closed doors. I’m sure this was a difficult decision for Braxton. However, family should always come first.

We wish her all the best!
