The ten rules of internet dating
This way, people can know exactly what to expect when they meet you and you'll be more likely to connect with people who are genuinely interested in who you are.DON’T assume that everyone else is as honest as you are.
If you're new to the online dating scene, there's no need to be intimidated.
Look out for any flowery language or vague statements that feel untrue.
DON’T get lured in by corny, overused pickup lines like, “Looking to spoil the person of my dreams with flowers and candlelit dinners.” Anyone can write something like this but few are actually interested in doing this for someone they haven't even met yet. If someone sounds too good to be true, they might be.
"If I can reach you on Facebook, can text you or tweet you - there's no mystery. It's just instant hook-ups and contact and everything's last minute," says Schneider. "Women are texting guys in the middle of the night, back and forth for hours, and they're not getting dates.
They're just becoming friends or friends with benefits." Technology may also be changing the way people interact with one another in person, allowing manners and graciousness to fall by the wayside.
