9 Online Dating Tips for Singles
“Only a few online dating services do a good job of screening applicants,” says dating expert Paul Falzone. “Unfortunately, many are open to anyone with the ability to pay the fee and post a picture (whether or not the image is actually them). Men and women alike may use the anonymity of the internet to lie about their age, appearance, marital status, name and even gender.”
Whether you use an online dating or singles’ service in your city, you need to ask questions to gauge how well the service protects and serves you. Do they conduct background checks? Are their safeguards to ensure that members are not married or have criminal records? Will they offer a guarantee? Are they in good standing with local business associations and the Attorney General’s office? If not, then you need to find a dating servive that does those things.
Here more tips for online dating from Falzone. And if you want to increase the chances you’ll get a second date, read 12 Signs It’s Too Soon to Start Dating Again.
1. Guard your personal information on online dating Web sites. Don’t fill out online profiles for free e-mail accounts that you may use when chatting or instant messaging. Even the most seemingly innocuous piece of information, when coupled with the personal information that may slip out in conversation, can be used to pry into your personal life.
2. Remember that personal info is in cyberspace, such as Facebook and Twitter. Be aware that an abundance of personal information can be harvested through both free and paid websites. Be very leery of any additional information you may post on a personal homepage or social network sites such as MySpace, Facebook and others.
