TO-DO Checklist before joining the online dating community

  1. Get “Spiffy”:

    Yes! The first thing you want to do is make sure you are looking your best. Get a haircut, do your nails and tidy up your look. This will also lift your confidence when joining the online community. When we look good, we feel good!


  1. Strike a pose:

    To put this in perspective and not to sound blunt, nothing is more a turnoff than an unflattering profile picture. You are not expected to look like the next Victoria Secret or GQ Model, but you do need to get a good pic. Practice makes perfect! And if you are unsure of where to start out, you can check out our post “Profile Pictures 101”.


  1. Dust off your social media:

    We are not saying to delete your entire past…everyone has one but you do need to put away some of the details of your past life. Pictures with the ex’s should be the first things to go on your list. Pictures of you visiting the globe and doing interesting activities (barhopping should not be one!) would be keepers!


  1. Play it safe:

    Your mother always told you “don’t talk to strangers” and this is probably something you should keep in mind before joining the online dating scene. Make sure you are not giving out too much personal information beforehand. Let somebody know (a friend or family member) if you do decide to meet up with an online match.

  1. Get to know yourself before getting to know others:

    You do not need to start a extended psycho-analysis of yourself, but it would be good to know what your interests are as well as some of your strong points.   Keep in mind that we are all unique and that is what makes us interesting to others. Don’t be afraid to share uncommon interests…you could be surprised!
