Have you ever wondered if you’re making a good impression when dating someone new? Whether you’ve met someone through online dating or through other means, you may be leaving the wrong impression without realizing it. When it comes to DOs and DON’Ts with online dating, the areas where I see daters commonly fall short include:

#1: Texting

People usually like to text because of the added layer of security that comes with not actually having to speak to someone. But, texts can frequently get misconstrued.

#2: Pictures

In a moment of bad judgment, a person might send inappropriate pictures. This almost always results in regret later on.  

#3: Online profile bios

Your profile is your first impression, but all too often, people have the wrong stuff on their profile.

#4: Pictures…again

As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” and it couldn’t be more true.  The pictures that you include on your dating profile should represent a healthy mixture of your lifestyle.
