The Predate Vlog: Dangerous Digital Romance
The Unconventional Woman is set to meet a tall vegan Irishman. He has been using whats app to message her every day since she asked him his opinion on the Bechdel test, and they’ve even managed a cheeky Skype beer. All the signs seems good, but you could look at things the other way and say all the signs are bad. Is intensive digital communication really a safe way to start a romantic intrigue….or doesn’t it get your comfort level way too high before first meeting? When he makes statements about dancing all night and reading in the long grass is he a true romantic, or a creepy Casanova?
