The ten commandments of dating online
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
Please, every one that sees your profile wants to know what you look like. And no, don't post that picture from ten years back when you still had hair (if you're a man) or when you were forty pounds lighter (both sexes).5.
Thou shalt not misrepresent your physical attributes.
Men if you're five foot nine don't say you'e six feet tall.
Remember, it's a big world with POF, don't let your self esteem suffer because SOMEONE YOU NEVER MET doesn't return your e-mail or IM.10. Make sure that your profile and emails are intelligent and show at least rudimentary signs of a good comprehension of the English language. I'm pretty new at POF, too.)Welcome to the online dating world!
And last but not least, Thou shalt not be discouraged. Personally speaking, profiles that contain a host of misspellings and incorrect or even no punctuation don't get a second glance from me. It can be challenging at times to avoid discouragement (rule #10), but it's a necessity for keeping balance and sanity. Most profiles I read look like this (with my thoughts included)--- like to have a good time (duh!
This became a painful reality for me recently when a routine doctor's visit revealed that I am one inch shorter than I thought I was. (But everyone is essentially the same height lying down, aren't they LOL).4.
Thou shalt post a picture, at least a legible face shot.Pedophiles are real and most have never been caught so they don’t appear on any sex offender list.There is no reason why a guy on a dating site needs to see a picture of your children! Thou Shalt Not Reveal the Ages or Genders of Your Children: Again, pedophiles are usually attracted to a specific age and gender, so don’t give them what they are looking for online.This is the number one major complaint of my women friends who are online. You know the kind...where you have to read it a few times to try to figure out what the heck they're trying to say! " and then complain about my one-word answer when I reply "fine." I don't want want to work that hard to figure out how to squeeze information out of someone I never met who has nothing to say. Because if she deletes it, you cant be pissed off at the work you put into it."Hello" is still the best opening line. They tell me that guys just look at their pictures and send them "you're so hot" or "let's meet" messages over and over again. Thou shalt have something to say when you message someone. Thou shalt not get upset if someone doesn't return your interest. OP: (BTW, can anyone tell me what those initials stand for... ) wana go to france or maybe I dunno what else to say message me and ill tell u more xo If I see ONE more profile like that.....!!! It's so mind boggling to read a one liner from someone that has 2 lines or so in their profile, that supposedly has read my profile (which is a mini novel) asking me to tell them more about myself. It just seems as though the first person to make a contact should make a reasonable effort to get a conversation going.^^^ fat chance ... If you're like me, one line and incomplete profiles get completely skipped by.6. If the description is not in the name bar, put it in your profile.7.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
