10 Must Have Online Dating Tips

by  Norbert

Have you ever thought of meeting people online? If so, meeting people online can be great fun.Online dating has given us the opportunity from our comforts of our own home to search for that someone.Let your common sense prevail when searching online and do not let your instincts lessen when making your decision. Please see the dating tips below which will make your search safe, a lot of fun and most importantly successful.

* Dating Tip #1

Most common form of introduction would be to say" Please Allow me to introduce myself" I use this one myself,it helps to break the ice and it is polite yet confident.

Have you ever tried to introduce yourself in a night club or a bar? I am sure you have. Do you say "Hi my name is"... my telephone number and my address is such and such...No I thought not. When you introduce yourself, please use common sense and do not reveal any personal details about yourself. This is one great thing about online dating. Take as much time as you need in getting to know someone before being comfortable enough in revealing all there is to know about you. So make sure you are not pressured. * Dating Tip #2

Do not lie about yourself on your profile. People will eventually find out you are having them on.

* Dating Tip #3

Do take the time to complete the entire profile on the registration form - Any unanswered questions say you could not be bothered or are hiding something. Try and complete the form as much as possible to let any potential contact know the real you.

* Dating Tip #4

Have you ever heard of the phrase "Honesty is the best policy" I am sure you have. Honesty is admired yet dishonesty is being disrespectful. Tell the people you are emailing your true intentions and it should be the correct path to successful dating. Always remember, that you must use your common sense and judgment. I know it is not easy to judge who you are contacting on the other side so please assess who you are being honest with.

* Dating Tip #5

Now here is good dating advice. Add a nice photo. A photo of you. A smiling photo. A smiling photo up close. A recent smiling photo up close! Make sure your photos are recent preferably less than 6 months old) and that you are happy. Members with photos are likely to get up to 9 times more replies than members without any photo image attached to their profile. * Dating Tip #6

Do not talk or brag about your ex. There is nothing more of a turn off for people to hear about your previous relationships. Instead focus on what you already have. The past is often best forgotten.

* Dating Tip #7

Always try and reply to people's messages and reply in a reasonable amount of time, not weeks later. If you are serious about dating, you are serious about replying. They have taken the time to talk or write to you and they may be really nice.

* Dating Tip #8

Has it ever happened to you where you are talking to a stranger and you are wondering what they look like? Our brains tend to create an image in our mind of what someone might look like.It is only our natural instinct to do so.If you ever meet or met the person they did not look anything like you had in your mind? Am I right? Of Course. Unfortunately none of us are psychic so I suggest you you ask for a picture and you can feel more comfortable with whom you are emailing.

* Dating Tip #9

Always and I mean always meet your date in a mutual place during the day which both of you are comfortable with.Always advise a friend or a relative of where you are going and leave a contact number.Do not leave any Drinks unattended. Unfortunately and it must be said that we live in cruel and sick world. Please if you have an alcoholic drink then please drink moderately.

* Dating Tip #10

Be Realistic. Most fairytale stories do not have a happy ending. If they sound perfect fit , it does not necessarily mean send the wedding Invitations out yet. If this date does not work out do not worry it will not be your last first date. If it does not lead to a next date then pack your bags and move on to the next potential candidate on your list. Do not be put off.

I know they say that there are plenty of fish in the sea but make sure you choose wisely anyway.
