Single soldiers may wait to disclose their past

Single soldiers may wait to disclose their past

Single soldiers looking for love online might have some parts of their life they would rather not share when they first meet somebody.

And an advice piece in the Boston Globe suggests this is fine, as people should wait until they feel ready to speak to a new partner about sensitive matters.

Meredith Goldstein posts the guidance on the site's Love Letters section, in response to a reader who has recently started dating and is worried about telling people about her troubled past.

Ms Goldstein says: "You'll be able to talk about your mistakes whenever it feels natural, whenever your past comes up and it's time to share."

This tends to happen within a few dates, as things are not too serious but seem comfortable enough to do so, she adds.

According to the University of Texas at El Paso Prospector, the beauty of online dating is that it is convenient and allows people to tell prospective partners as much or as little about themselves as they wish.
