Red flags/things to avoid:
~ Safety first: When you meet someone for the first time after an online match, meet in a public place, tell a friend where you are going and take your cell phone
~ Lying—about 20% of men who do online dating lie in a major way—about not being married, profession, income or age. Women also lie. Be heads up about this.
~ Avoid prolonged email exchanges with one person where you never actually meet—there could be no chemistry whatsoever
~ Avoid having expectations for quick success, because you will burn out. This is a numbers game and you have to sort through a lot of mismatches to get to the great ones. But the great ones are out there! The Number One Place To Meet Your Future Husband
