Also, it conveys that she doesn’t have friends, doesn’t do anything, and isn’t active.It doesn’t necessarily mean any of these things, but that’s the perception it can give.

However, a lot of people aren’t using online dating to their best benefit.

One of my recent female clients had only two pictures up, and both were professional shots. It suggests that this is the best she could possibly look, and, in fact, she might be much less attractive.

One of my current clients met someone on Ok Cupid, and they exchanged numbers.

They sent a few texts back and forth, but then he started blowing up her phone. Biologically speaking, humans are pack animals, and to be accepted into the pack, we must be similar to the others in the pack.

Online dating, like anything else, has some etiquette rules everyone should follow.

It always amazes me how much people willingly disguise who they are online.

If they tell you a slightly embarrassing story, guess what you should do? If someone writes to you “Hey, I like that picture of you in Tulum! People are just testing the water with their first emails. There is no correlation between bad spelling or grammar and intelligence. Keep your homonyms straight (your, you’re) and your possessives minimal (it’s, its).

I know you use internet slang and text language to your friends, but this is not your friend.

This is someone you’re, well, hoping to sleep with or be in a relationship with. Re-read your messages once before you send them to make sure there are no glaring mistakes.
