It is a fact: nobody wants to be alone. So, if you haven’t met the right person yet, you can try social network for singles as well, because you don’t have anything to lose. If you never tried online dating, you should know that there are some rules and general tips you need to know about.
First thing, you need to find a website where you will meet new people. Be aware that there are many different types of sites, for example MySpace is just a social network website, and eHarmony for example is offering a way to communicate for those that are seeking for a serious relationship. If you are interested only on dating, you can register for example at match.com.
When you are creating your account, my opinion is to not lie about important facts like age or what do you do for a living. Say also if you are married, single or divorced. But you should not give your personal information like your name and surname, address or home phone number. Also it is best if you create an email address that you will use for dating conversations and dating websites.
When you create your profile the social dating network, give details about yourself, like for example your favorite movie, your favorite food etc. Post nice photos, because the photos are the first thing that grabs the attention of someone that is browsing your profile page. If you are receiving comments, give them a chance and try to find out more about those persons that posted them. Who knows, among them could be the perfect person for you. If you like a certain person, propose him or her to continue the dialogue on the email, so that you can send private messages which are not read by everyone. This way, you can talk about what you want, without the worry that someone else will read your comments.
Don’t forget to avoid married people because you will be the one that will be hurt at the end. You can find these things by communicating, asking details about its previous relationships, etc. When you are talking with persons you don’t know, be respectful and in the same time give compliments. If you really like that person, you can go on an actual offline date. Remember to go on a place you are familiar with and as a safety measure, tell someone where you are going to be.
