To decide whether or not the person you met on a dating site has relationship potential?
Most Helpful Guy
You can't tell for sure. All you can do is go on dates, and hold things off until you feel you can trust him. When you feel you can trust him, it's your call. Same goes for sex. You hold off on sex, until you are at a place where you think he's actually there for you, not just sex.
This is strictly a judgment call, and nothing else. There is no set time limit. No set number of dates. No signs you can look for. No tell tale signs, logic or anything you can trust for sure. If there was a rule book, players would follow it to the letter, and fake all the signs. It's all up to you. This is with internet dating, or real life dating. It's all up to you. Nothing else.
You have to decide when you're ready to take the risk, because believe me, there's always a risk. (Also, while nobody ever talks about it, the same risks apply to guys to.) The risk is always there, that you might get your heart broken. You just have to be brave at some point. It sucks but that's just the way it is.
