More and more people are using online dating as a way to explore potential relationships. Online dating can be a wonderful experience, allowing people to meet and connect with other like-minded people they may never have met otherwise. Online dating can, however, pose unique challenges, especially for people who have a history of being in unhealthy relationships. It can be challenging to find a balance between being open to people and their quirks in the early stages of a relationship, while also feeling confident in decisions to set boundaries with people who are showing red flags.
