Tried and true advice to avoid Internet scammers and find lasting love!

6. If he gets too personal, asks for financial information or a loan, run! People have all kinds of sob stories. It is not your job to fix them. Most likely, he is a pro, and scamming women is his job.

7. Have fun. Dating is supposed to be fun. Keep it light. The first few dates are to see if there is a romantic connection and common interests. Let your personality and sense of humor shine through.

8. Let him do most of the talking. The first couple of dates are the prefect time to find out about him. If you listen more than you talk, you will find out everything you need to know.

9. Don't jump into a relationship too fast. Get to know this person, his friends and family. One of the best ways to assess the character of a man is by the company he keeps.

10. If you feel burned out, take a break. For some people, online dating ends up becoming like a second job. If you find yourself exhausted, getting negative or bitter, take a break from it and do something special for yourself. Spend the day at a spa, take a class to learn a new skill or a drive up the coast. It will give you a new perspective on life and love.
