Don't be surprised to hear about your date on social networking Web sites like Facebook, Twitter and blogs. Although some people are private and wouldn't think of posting about their personal lives on the Internet, others have no qualms about divulging potentially embarrassing information online. Remember that dead silence we mentioned earlier? Not to be paranoid, but the texting your date was doing may have been real-time updates to his or her Facebook page telling everyone you're the date from hell. That's not just a sign -- it's a beacon declaring the relationship has ended before its begun. But even a flattering post could jeopardize your privacy. You have to consider whether you want to date a person who doesn't respect your comfort zone.
