      How To Avoid The Pitfalls, Wrong Turns, Broken Hearts Of Online Dating
      Copyright (c) 2009-2013 Lance Metzger
      NSA Dating Site
      http://www.nsadatingsite.com



      As an experienced online dater, I feel qualified to help you avoid
      pitfalls, wrong turns, broken hearts, and the general
      catastrophes associated with internet wooing.

      When you join your first online dating community, you will be
      required to fill in personal information. Please be honest. You
      are shorter and fatter than you think.

      However, you have to be true to yourself too. Do not embellish
      your life just because you think that is what the opposite sex
      wants to hear. If you create a fake persona, you will regret it
      and look like a liar.

      Warning: Prepare To Be Overwhelmed!

      After signing up, uploading your picture and answering personal
      questions, you will be bombarded with images of single people all
      wanting to be friends with you. It is a heady experience, but it
      isn't real.

      * Think of online dating as "an Ebay for your heart." Yeah,
      there is a lot of stuff on there, but you don't need it all.
      It's like going to the mall with unlimited credit. Take a deep
      breath and remember that these are people, not things to be
      purchased.

      * Take it slow. Don't act like the greedy kid in Willie Wonka.
      You are way better than that. Remember that the person you pick
      to correspond with is also connecting with other people. So, do
      yourself a favor and don't tell all your friends about this
      great guy/gal you met. Chances are your new "mate" might not be
      around in three days and you will look like a desperate loser.

      * Keep in mind that this is a "dating" website and some people
      are looking to date many people as possible because, after all,
      they paid for it.

      * Take your time to correspond and build up a friendship before
      you agree to meet someone in person. In the car business,
      salespeople encourage you to take a test drive to promote in you
      a feeling of "ownership." If you want a shot at more than just
      a string of one time coffee dates, you have to do the same. You
      need to become "real" to the person you are interested in.

      Write. Text. Whatever. Let your potential partner see you as a
      person. Let a friendship grow naturally so when you finally meet
      it is with a sense of anticipation, not dread. A date will be
      less likely to dump you on the spot if they are eager to meet you
      despite your shortcomings, and you will be more likely to
      overlook their receding hairline or less-than-perfect abs.

      Follow All The Safety Rules

      Meet in a public place, let a friend know where you will be, and
      don't give out personal contact information until you are sure
      that your date is reasonably trustworthy. Bad things don't
      happen very often, but they do happen.

      Don't believe everything your date tells you. Caveat Emptor -
      Buyer Beware.

      Be financially savvy. Dating sites are in this for the money.
      They offer you the "convenience" of debiting your checking
      account or credit card every month. Stay aware of when this
      deduction will occur, or even keep a calendar specifically for
      this purpose. Cancel your membership if you feel like you have
      met someone special and no longer need the service, or if you
      feel like this just isn't working out for you.

      Do not let your naysaying friends talk you out of this. In the
      past, "computer dating" had a negative connotation; happily, I
      believe that is changing. Users now realize that people on a
      dating site are busy professionals who don't like meeting
      potential partners in a more traditional way (i.e., bars). The
      men aren't creepy weirdos and the women aren't chubby
      introverts....well, at least, not all of us.

      Finally, be realistic. You will never meet the perfect person and
      you will never be the perfect person. Relax. Readjust your
      expectations and you and your date will have much more fun.
      That's what its all about, isn't it?

          You are way better than that. Remember that the person you pick
          to correspond with is also connecting with other people. So, do
          yourself a favor and don't tell all your friends about this
          great guy/gal you met. Chances are your new "mate" might not be
          around in three days and you will look like a desperate loser.

          * Keep in mind that this is a "dating" website and some people
          are looking to date many people as possible because, after all,
          they paid for it.

          * Take your time to correspond and build up a friendship before
          you agree to meet someone in person. In the car business,
          salespeople encourage you to take a test drive to promote in you
          a feeling of "ownership." If you want a shot at more than just
          a string of one time coffee dates, you have to do the same. You
          need to become "real" to the person you are interested in.

          Write. Text. Whatever. Let your potential partner see you as a
          person. Let a friendship grow naturally so when you finally meet
          it is with a sense of anticipation, not dread. A date will be
          less likely to dump you on the spot if they are eager to meet you
          despite your shortcomings, and you will be more likely to
          overlook their receding hairline or less-than-perfect abs.

          Follow All The Safety Rules

          Meet in a public place, let a friend know where you will be, and
          don't give out personal contact information until you are sure
          that your date is reasonably trustworthy. Bad things don't
          happen very often, but they do happen.

          Don't believe everything your date tells you. Caveat Emptor -
          Buyer Beware.

          Be financially savvy. Dating sites are in this for the money.
          They offer you the "convenience" of debiting your checking
          account or credit card every month. Stay aware of when this
          deduction will occur, or even keep a calendar specifically for
          this purpose. Cancel your membership if you feel like you have
          met someone special and no longer need the service, or if you
          feel like this just isn't working out for you.

          Do not let your naysaying friends talk you out of this. In the
          past, "computer dating" had a negative connotation; happily, I
          believe that is changing. Users now realize that people on a
          dating site are busy professionals who don't like meeting
          potential partners in a more traditional way (i.e., bars). The
          men aren't creepy weirdos and the women aren't chubby
          introverts....well, at least, not all of us.

          Finally, be realistic. You will never meet the perfect person and
          you will never be the perfect person. Relax. Readjust your
          expectations and you and your date will have much more fun.
          That's what its all about, isn't it?
