Tips For Internet Dating

Dec 19, 2007
Internet dating is fun and friendly. Today, almost everyone has tried or wants to try their hand at this new magical world of online dating. However, just like the real world, there are some rules and tips to follow, to make the most of your experience.

Top 10 tips for internet dating

Whether you are new to the online dating scene or a regular to this exciting world of online dating, it is always better to ensure that your experience is enjoyable, fun and most of all, safe. No matter who you are, it is best to keep a few basic tips in mind when looking for romance on the internet.

1. Choose the dating agency with caution. Make sure it is rated as one of the top dating websites and has a good reputation. Also, make sure it has a strict privacy policy in place and will keep your information secure.

2. While adding your information to the internet dating profile, be honest about the information you put in. This will increase the chances of attracting like-minded responses. Make sure however, that you leave out personal contact information which can be misused by others going through your profile.

3. Add a few pictures of yourself to your internet dating profile. Let potential partners see you. It is said that doing so will increase your chances of getting a response by at least 50%. However, try not to be too explicit as it can give you the wrong kind of attention.

4. Check a person's profile thoroughly before adding him/her to your friend's list, on internet dating websites. Make sure the person meets your specific criteria and is not a hoax. If a person is sounding too good to be true, it is likely that so is the case.

5. Take your time and get to know a person you like, before divulging personal information about yourself to anyone. This will give you time to access the person and find out if he or she truly is the one for you.

6. Don't agree to meet up with the person till you are completely comfortable and 100% satisfied with your background check on the person. Always trust your instincts or gut feeling about people when exploring the world of internet dating.

7. Not everyone on the internet dating website is a good person. If someone on the dating site is abusive, or is asking for cash incentive in order to meet you, report him or her immediately. You might save many others a lot of trouble.

8. If at all you decide to meet up with your dream date, make sure you let someone know where and when you are meeting your date and when you will be back. Always carry a cellular phone with you to the destination and arrange for your own means of transport during the initial dates. Don't accept rides home, from strangers.

9. Be cautious about internet dating, but don't let it dampen your spirits. Be open-minded when you meet your online date and most importantly, enjoy yourself. You never know, who might sweep you off your feet! If not, you might have just made a movie-buddy for the weekends you don't have a date!

10. Internet dating is not a sure shot to finding your soul mate. So get out of home and join a gym or the book club. Don't write off people just because they are not your ideal partners. They might turn out to become good friends or might just be ideal reference dates for your other single friends.
