Courtship takes the position that the two people have no physical contact at all (no touching, no hand-holding, no kissing) until marriage.Many in a courtship relationship will not spend any time together unless family members, preferably parents, are present at all times.
by Bri & Nicole, loveisrespect advocates Here at loveisrespect, we often talk with people who are experiencing abuse in their relationship, and they want to determine why their partner is being abusive towards them.
Sometimes this search for “why” leads them to believing that their partner is abusive because they experienced child abuse or went through some other form of trauma in their past.
But if enough of us speak out, we can get OKCupid to do the right thing, and hopefully many other companies that house sensitive user data will follow suit.
As more and more of our lives move online, we need to hold web companies accountable to keep ourselves safe in the digital age.
It’s even more terrifying to think that someone could target an entire group of OKCupid users, say LGBTQ people who are not out to their families, or people from a certain religious background, and expose their data online.
OKCupid needs to start using sitewide HTTPS encryption right away.
Using a simple hacking tool that anyone could easily get online, someone could even take over your account and impersonate you, all because OKCupid isn’t using this super basic form of security that is standard across the web.
OKCupid asks users to share incredibly sensitive and potentially embarrassing information to power it’s “matching” algorithm.
In addition, courting couples state up front that their intentions are to see if the other person is a suitable potential marriage partner.
