Don’t pretend to like something or be someone that you are not just to please the other person. If they are the right one for you, there will not be a reason to pretend.
Don’t be afraid to play the field. There are hundreds of possible matches out there for you – don’t limit yourself to just one. Just as long as you’re being honest and having fun, it’s okay to keep contacting as many people as you like until you find someone you’re interested in. After all, meeting new people is what dating is all about.
Reply to anyone who contacts you whether it is to say “Yes, I’m interested” or “I can’t talk to you at this time”. The generally accepted practice is to respond within one week. But remember that you may be turning down the right person, so you may want to just chat a little bit and see what happens!
In e-mail communications, don’t send out “form letters” to everyone. Don’t make them sound like a business letter, be casual and conversational as you address something showing about them in their profile.
