Not considering safety
It's so easy to get caught up in the moment, remember to keep your guard up with the possibility that someone could fake their information and pictures on their dating profile
Using phony pictures
Your photos are a great way for someone to see you, don't use blurry photos or pictures with lots of people in them!
Lying on your profile
It's super easy to hide information on your profile. You should answer questionnaires honestly and don't pretend to be something that you're not because it will eventually come to surface.
Sending boring or creepy messages
Ideally you should be bringing something up you found in your matches profile to strike up a conversation instead of "hey" or "what's up" and bring up a common interest too!
Being too picky or idealistic
Online, because you’re looking through a list of comparable profiles and pictures, it’s easy to get selective and obsess over finding the perfect person. Don’t do this or it will turn into decision paralysis.
Not using the right service for you
Dating websites and apps differ in their user expectations. Free dating sites are often more casual than paid ones, so if you’re serious about finding a match, consider paying to join one.
