Does online dating work?
Yes. Online dating is one of the fastest growing industries. Online dating gives you not only the ability to check out more people at a far faster rate than you possibly could in person, it also allows you to meet people close by or from far, far, away.
Is online dating safe?
Yes. At least most dating sites require payment, which tends to discourage potential “creeps” from wasting their time. All you have to do is follow the same rules of safety that apply to traditional dating.
Should I include a picture with my profile or a personal ad?
Yes, people will want to know who you are before answering your ad. A picture with a profile will greatly increase your likelyhood of getting a match.
Do I have to answer all the questions on a profile or personal ad form?
Yes, it will make you seem like someone they will want to answer. The more information that you fill out on the form the better will be the replies that you will get from people.
What kind of pictures should I include with my profile?
You should have several pictures of you. Try and have a few pictures that display the unique person that you are.
Where should I meet someone for the first date?
You should pick a nice place that you are comfortable with. A public place that is filled with people. Besure to tell a friend or two where you are going and whom you are meeting. You might even want to arrange to call a friend at a specific time or two during the evening.
Can I post a picture of me with other people?
Yes, but remember you want the focus to be on you and not someone else. It should not be a guessing game for other interested members to point you out in pictures. Stick to pictures of just you for your profile. Later you can always send or add pictures that include other friends.
