Online dating what not to do

But the worst one (i.e a blurry selfie) also shouldn’t be on there to undersell yourself. Choose a realistic image with decent (but not flawless) lighting. Don’t reveal too much personal info As with anything on the internet, shouting out your cell phone number and address is probably a bad idea.

You might not even want to share your last name, initially.

If you were just looking for casual, then it would be pretty messed up to mislead someone on several dates without letting them know your intention.

And vice versa, if more serious is your goal, that should be preliminary info that’s shared, so no one feels duped. Keep the fibs to a minimum, preferably none We all want to make a good first impression and make ourselves look better than we are, at first.

The consequences are that we may end up making the wrong choice. Someone you meet in a bar could be lying about their status just as easily as someone you meet online.
