Online dating opens up a world of possibilities and I highly recommend it. However, be prepared by keeping your expectations realistic and by keeping a realistic perspective on the entire process. Until you meet someone and begin to date regularly, all you're really doing is connecting with people who are virtual strangers.
To increase your odds of success, treat your online dating profile like a marketing opportunity and that way you can go from one of many to being the "one". Start crafting a better online dating profile right now by completing the free personality quiz on my site and then incorporating the best answers into your dating profile.
