Don’t let a bad dating experience get you down.
Don’t be afraid to make the first move. See someone you like, go for it!
Don’t misrepresent yourself on your profile. It’s best not to use old photos for your profile picture and be completely honest about your hobbies and interests.
Don’t use a selfie as your profile photo.
Don’t respond to every email that you receive – unless you really want to.
Don’t wait for someone you’re interested in to message you first!
Don't go for dinner on the first date. Once you’re sitting at a table with this stranger, you’re trapped until the bill comes – and they could be a very slow eater and dull to boot.
Don’t answer or call the person drunk or come from somewhere else where you’ve been drinking.
Don’t sit idle. Aim for about ten new messages a day in order to get noticed by other users.
Don’t lie on your dating profile. If you really want this to go somewhere, you’ll have to be honest.
Don’t cut and paste. It’s pretty easy to spot a generic "I send this to all the girls" message, and it won’t do you any favors. Personalized messages stand out much more and get a real dialogue going.
Don’t mention how you promise you won't ever tell anyone you met online. The stigma attached to online dating is long gone. Be proud that you're being proactive in your search for love.
