Be honest! Why tell someone a falsehood that will soon be discovered if you meet. Even if it’s not an obvious lie, if you do get together it will eventually come out. Have fun with who you are. Ever hear of people being rejected for being honest or funny about themselves? Say exactly who you are and what you want. Better 1 response from someone perfect than 10 almost-perfects.
Keep in mind, not everyone on online dating sites is always telling the truth. Some people use old, out-of-date photos, neglect to disclose key information like the fact that they're married, or stretch the truth on physical attributes like their height, weight, or amount of hair. Always maintain a healthy level of skepticism that anyone you meet might not be telling the whole truth.
Don't wait too long before meeting personally. You want to save some of the questions, comments and secrets for the first few live dates. Trust me, there is nothing worse than meeting someone for the first time and having nothing to talk about in the awkward moments with your new date.
It is important to stay safe when meeting people online. While the vast majority of people online are normal, healthy people looking to find a mate, there are some less savory types out there you want to stay away from. Always require photos before you meet online, always check for reviews about the person on a review site like True Dater, always meet in a public place for the first one or more meetings, and never ever give out personally identifying information like your last name, address, or work address until you feel totally comfortable with the person.
