Online Stalking: Helpful Or Hindering?
From Hello Beautiful– I, like most people, am the kind of person who uses the internet to prepare me for all kinds of things that I don’t know very well. If I’m trying out a new restaurant after work, I will definitely be searching for their menu and happy hours online. If we are about to have a meeting about a new program that we are going to use, I will take a few minutes to read an overview of the program. But there are DEFINITELY times that online preparation can give you too much information, leading to an awkward first encounter.
Let’s say that you were set up with a friend of a friend, who is apparently just your type (whatever that even means). You do a quick facebook/linkedin/twitter search for him in the taxi on your way there and find that he is successful, single, and loves to travel- he IS your type!
