Daring people, who sincerely enjoy living their lives to the fullest, are quite bold about what they say and do. They have stories, photographs, witnesses, and other things that will back up all the adventure they have experienced so far in their lives. However, charlatans know how to impress the unsuspecting as well. This is why you just might have to make a few phone calls, perform some online research, check in with buddies at the locations they claim to know people, and more to find out whether the online date is in fact being truthful.
Interview these "I like to have fun" types. Test them on their knowledge of things. Ask basic questions, but also inquire about things they can’t simply look up on the Internet. Ask them to share personal opinion, discoveries, and people they have met on their journeys. Include trick questions and pretend as if they are correct. Once you have found the truth about this so-called brave person faking interest and pretending to be something he or she is not, ignore him or her.
Those that sincerely love the outdoors, animals, water, travel, and more will have much in common with you. Every time you talk to these courageous dates you find yourself more and more interested in them and their lifestyles. Share plans about what you like to do and if the date is indeed a diehard fan of adventure, he or she will contribute knowledge to your story-telling.
Adventurous people tend to take risks in other areas of their lives too. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. Some have habits that affect themselves and others immensely from porn addictions to substance abuse. Others don’t manage money well and will not hesitate to leave a responsibility to try something new and different. This can be disheartening to later find out especially if you tend to have balance in your life. You know when to have fun and when to work. Those individuals who have yet to manage work and fun tend to mix business with pleasure.
When dating someone who claims to be adventurous, a risk taker, enjoys new discoveries, and more, be certain that he or she is also responsible. You can test a date by posing hypothetical questions. Listening to responses and then testing again later to compare answers. When the time comes to meet, notice his or her conduct when in public environments. Some "fun" types can also be quite emotional and struggle with personality disorders. They can be up on some days and then come crashing down on others. Others tend to rush getting to activities and sometimes you find that their interests are more like obsessions. Keep in mind that those who just love certain adventure will not quell their passions just because they are in a relationship with someone, so don’t expect your adventure seekers to do this. If what they do bothers you, it would be better to move on with your life then to wish for these individuals to change.
