Tips for Internet dating:

When dating online, you should have an upright approach and you should communicate your next step clearly to the other person. Following are some Internet dating basics that should be followed to impart a basic grace to the whole purpose:

Dating sites: Use a search engine to shortlist online dating sites of your choice. Register with them after ensuring that the site will maintain the integrity of your personal information.

Acknowledgement: Always acknowledge the receipt of a person’s email in time and convey clearly if you wish to proceed further or not. Do not opt out without letting the other person know. It is not right to keep others waiting even in the online world.

Photograph: Post your latest photograph to enable others to have the real vision of you.

Freeze account: Freeze your dating accounts in case you have received a gush of response. Once you have responded to everybody, you may reopen your account for further communication.

Email content: Keep your email content light, polite and in good stead, maintaining a formal touch at the same time. Never pick up sensitive issues like politics, religion, beliefs, war, deaths and your personal problems, to name some.

Honesty: Be honest right from the start until the end. Do not lie, truth will prevail finally and initial lies may embarrass you or may even take away from you some possible genuine relationships. Abstain from commenting if you think that integrity of your information is being violated but still do not lie.

Opting out: You should opt out of an online dating relationship if you get even the slightest signal that the other person is probably disinterested in you. There is no point dragging such a negative relationship because it is destined to end. Opt out if you feel that the other person is too aggressive or insistent because such people bypass your comfort level and at times may violate your privacy. Such uncaring relationships can be very painful.
