3. Give the proper attention to each person who comes your way. While there are thousands of people to pick from, the truth is that it’s still a challenge to find someone you connect with, enjoy, are attracted to and trust. When you’re considering people in your inbox, take time to consider all the information they provide. Not everyone takes a good picture or writes like Longfellow. Give these folks a break and I promise you’ll increase your chances of meeting a great person. When responding to potential suitors, do so with kindness. I know, it may seem unthinkable that you would not be kind. But the truth is that, like any dating, at times you can feel disappointed or frustrated. With anonymity, you can feel that you have permission to be curt or not give proper respect. Just think of it like you would if you were standing face to face, and remember that there is real person behind that email. And have fun!

By Bobbi PalmerNo matter your age, the way to connect with a man in the "I think you're hot and would be interested in going out with you" way is to flirt. It's as true online as in person; flirtation isn't about being a tease—it's about showing your interest and curiosity, and piquing his. When I suggest that to the mature over-40 single ... Read more
