Always read through your messages before you send them - keep an eye out for slips of spelling and grammar and make sure that what you have written reflects what you really want to say.It’s also important to strike the right tone: you don’t want to sound formal or cold, but, equally, you want to sound relaxed rather than over-familiar.

Once you're dating, wait until a little bit into the relationship to friend each other on Facebook, and even longer to friend each others' friends. If you're going to put up any type of photo that implies you're in a relationship, you have to be 100 percent sure you're in a relationship. And of course, never share other peoples' personal information online, whether it's private photos or something they've said to you in confidence. Have a friend look at your profile and ask: "Does it really sound like me? If you're still unsure about whether you're representing yourself well, whether it's in your social media or online dating profile, "take a look in the digital mirror," said Post.If, for example, a man who has a moustache gets in touch with a woman who says she doesn’t like beards, he needs to play things carefully!Generally, putting things in writing demands greater care than spoken communication - and the speed and ease of email can be both seductive and deceptive.That's why online dating has become such a hugely successful tool for connecting singles with the click of a mouse…or text…or however else e Harmony makes their magic work. I think Photoshop has singlehandedly changed the way people connect online, thanks to its ability to trick you into seeing something that isn’t really true (much like alcohol). Not a problem, just find a photo of the ripped abs I like online, blend here, erase there, and while I’m at it, move my image so that I’m standing in front of that new Tesla. Sadly, my mannerly friends, falsifying how you look for your online profile is never going to work in the long run.
