Tips for new online daters include being thoughtful when assembling your profile and pictures, being open about the types of people you consider, starting interesting conversations and following basic online safety rules. Having an open attitude toward the experience helps daters get the most out of it.
A successful profile shares interesting personal details that showcase your personality without sharing too much. Include more than one picture to show different sides of your personality. When you are starting a conversation with someone, read the person's profile, and ask something thoughtful to show you paid attention. To stay safe, avoid giving out private information such as your address before you know the other person well. Meet in public to avoid potentially dangerous situations with a new person you are dating.
