This Issue's Tips

1. Research a reputable site

2. Don't give out any personal information while chatting online. Even small details can lead to serious problems down the road.

3. Schedule a time to meet up. Often if a person is genuinely interested in a relationship, they will find time in their calendar for you.

4. Meet in a public place.

5. Go on multiple dates before sharing vulnerable information

6. Be honest yourself, relationships are only successful if there is good communication.

7. Keep an open mind, often dates will not go anywhere. Positivity and realistic expectations are key.

8. Only use your first name on these sites. (Never underestimate the power of search engines. By giving your last name, you are giving out a lot of other information).

9. Don't give your phone number out right away. Establish trust, and then share your digits.

10. You can even try out multiple different sites at once, each one has different benefits. Online dating is not one size fit all.
