Generally, online dating sites would only ask for your name, email address and go on to fill out a personality form. Be wary about sites that ask for your social security number, home phone and business number and even maiden name of your mother. These can be illegitimate sites. Furthermore, do not give out your credit card information easily. No matter how secure the site is, unscrupulous people will still find a way to get your info.

This is understandable because if these people are fabulous in real life, they will no resort finding love online, which is not to say that online dating is only for ugly people. Lots of beautiful people also try their luck here. But you have to be practical about it. Do not expect that the person you see and read on the web page is an exact copy of the real one once you get to meet him or her. Throw in some reservations and lower your expectations.

3. Get to know them people

After the getting to know you phase, some online dating sites actually offer web cam and chat options. You can go online and talk to the person itself. His or her face on the webcam can also give you an overview of what he looks like. Get a feeling for the person. Is he what he says he is? Can you tell if he is a generally nice person? Would you be willing to go out with him? If you want, you can continue the online dating for a while before you finally meet. It will make the first meeting more comfortable since you already know quite a bit about each other.
