Using dating websites safely and effectively

There are a lot of risks involved when it comes to using dating sites, and Smartdate is no exception. If is better that you be as careful as possible when using websites like this. Here are some general tips for you to consider.

  • The first thing to consider is whether or not the site is free. I assure you that there are plenty of very good dating sites out there that are absolutely free for users. If you plan to use one of these sites you will encounter very little risk financially speaking. If you would prefer to use a paid website (many people do this because they think that there are more options and services on a paid site – which is normally true) make sure that you research the site carefully before signing up. You may notice that there is not a lot to find about Smartdate. Some sites are just there to trick you out of your hard earned money.
  • Consider these potential sites: PlentyofFish.com, eHarmony.com, OkCupid.com, Match.com, LavaLife.com, Match.com, YahooPersonals.com, MatchMaker.com, Gay.com, Mingles.com, BlackSingles.com, and ChristianMingle.com. Note that different websites will offer different kinds of dating experiences. Be sure to select only those websites that will give you the dating experience that you want to have.
  • A very important point to keep in mind if you want your online dating experience to be successful is that you must, at all times, be honest. Usually a site will find potential matches for you by viewing your site information. This is the first step to finding true love, so you want it to be accurate. You will be matched with people who are similar to you and like to do similar things. This will increase your chances of finding the perfect match.
  • Being specific can help you find the perfect match. However on some sites you may actually need to broaden your criteria in order to be more general if you want to increase your chances of finding a match. The best thing to do is to start off specific on each site and then, as you start to get the hang of how the site works you can start broadening your criteria to include more and more things.
  • Avoid giving out the following information on a dating website: full name, e-mail address, phone number, home address or any information about your employer or workplace. This is dangerous as there are many people on the internet who are looking for people to victimise. In fact most people create an email account specifically for use on dating sites and nothing else to protect themselves. Don’t use a work email account.
  • If you don’t have a profile picture the chances are quite high that potential matches won’t even bother reading your profile. Be sure to include a recent picture of yourself that gives a clear idea of who you are as a person to make your profile more interesting and to attract more potential matches.
  • Be specific and positive when you create your profile. Do not include negative statements about yourself or the dating sites you have tried. Be upbeat and interesting and try to make your profile as attractive as possible so that potential matches will be more interested in speaking with you some more.
  • When you start connecting via phone, continue to keep your answers as vague as possible until you are absolutely sure that you know the person well.
  • If you decide to meet with someone you meet on a dating site, choose a very public place with lots of people for the first date. It is also wise to tell someone where you are going and have them phone to check up on you during the date.
