Dear Dr. Mossman, couple of years ago, we moved to a brand new town for my psychiatry residency. Work makes me personally time that is little socialize; fulfilling other singles is tough. Buddies have actually recommended I try online dating sites. I’m intrigued, but leery, too. Let’s say a client views my profile and asks me personally about it—or asks me away?
