1. Be clear about your online dating aims.
Don’t pursue a man who you know is looking for a good time when what you really want is a long-term relationship. This is not fair to either you or him.
2. Don’t be embarrassed about online dating.
Online dating is pretty mainstream today and if you asked around, you will find that more people have used the Internet to find love than you first thought.
3. Be realistic about your appearance.
Don’t use an old photograph or use your vital statistics from 1997. You may get that first date but you won’t get that importany second date.
4. Be selective.
It may be flattering to get lots of winks and emails from men who found your profile attractive but don’t feel obliged to make contact with everyone who show an interest.
5. Don’t limit yourself to superficial must-haves.
The man of your dreams may be 5’11 and not 6’1 as you’ve specified in your search criteria. Don’t let the love of your life get away cos he’s 2 inches shorter than you would ideally hope for.
