New to the online dating scene? Don’t worry, it isn’t quite as difficult as you might think it is to find a great person to start a relationship with, or just to hang out with. The websites really make the process quite simple and safe and even fun. Even so, there are a few tips you will want to keep in mind, so stick to this online dating guide and you should be fine…
Always Get Pics
If a person cannot provide you with good, up to date pictures of themselves, you have to wonder what they’re hiding. It’s not so much that they might not be so attractive as they might be lying about who they are. No pics, no date, no exceptions, simple as that.
Look for Believable Profiles
It goes without saying that everyone on these sites will be putting their best foot forward, but do you really think this guy is a doctor AND an Olympic medalist AND the world’s handsomest millionaire? If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. They might not be outright lying, but a lot of exaggeration does go on sometimes, and luckily, it’s pretty darn easy to spot.
Looks Aren’t Everything
A part of you wants to just respond to the most attractive person to contact you. That’s understandable, but remember that without some common interests, values and background you won’t have much to talk about with that hunky/hot date. Even if you’re not looking for anything serious, boring people are boring no matter how little time you spend with them.
Be Thorough in Your own Profile
Put your best foot forward, put your best picture up, sure, but be honest, and provide a lot of information. There’s no need to lie about how much money you make or what you weigh. Anyone worth having a good date with will like you for what you have to offer.
