Tips For Online Dating

Feb 9, 2008
Tired of the same old smoky bars and crazy speed dating sessions? Want to meet someone new? I will be including several, successful guidelines to help guide you into the new age Online Dating game. Use the guidelines to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience while looking for love online.

Would you prefer to meet someone in your own hometown or explore your options elsewhere? Either way, you can find just the right online singles site to suit your needs. There are so many options out there for you just waiting for you to explore. Lets look at what you need to do to be successful.

Today's online dating services are not the same as years past. Today there is an online service for just about any scenario you can imagine. Whether that be straight, gay, bisexual, kink, Doms/subs, fetish or whatever it is that turns you on. It's out there and just waiting for you to explore. How do you pick an online dating service that will fit your needs? Take some time, get familiar with the sites. Search for specific sites aimed towards what you're looking for and take the time to find the right one for you. Don't just go with the first one you find, look at several. Trust me, there are plenty out there.

First impressions are so important, and you only get one chance to make a first impression. Choose photos of yourself that are flattering and fun. Girls, take the time to do your hair and put on a little makeup. Don't post a picture of your self bumming around in sweats with your hair pulled back in a pony tail. Guys, post a nice picture of yourself as well, don't put a picture of your self after youve been out mowing the yard. If you like snowboarding post a picture of yourself with your board heading up the hill to go snowboarding or getting ready to take a ride down the hill.

Honesty is the most importing thing you can be when filling in your Online Dating profile. How would you feel if you found out someone you were interested in had been less than honest when they filled out their profile? It happens, just don't be the one to do it. It will make for a more successful match later on down the road.

Always protect your personal identity, never give anyone information that could lead them them tracking you down when you don't want them to. Never give out your last name until you have talked with someone many many times. I would advise against telling anyone where you live specifically, where you work or go to school. It may save your life.

When finally deciding to travel to meet someone, stay in your own hotel or motel. Do not agree to stay with them during the visit. Make sure several people know where you're going, who you're going to see and where you will be staying. Include the address and full name of the person you're going to meet. Rent your own car for the visit.

Don't get yourself stuck somewhere you find out you don't want to be. You call the shots and if you're uncomfortable, leave. If you find yourself in a situation where you need help, don't hesitate to call the police. Always, always, always keep your cell phone handy. It could save your life. Best tip of all, just enjoy it and be your self. Happy dating!
