  • It Is Safe

The biggest concerns people have with dating online is that of their safety. The good news with online dating is that you do not have to reveal who you are unless you want to. What most people do is that they do not reveal any personal information about themselves until they are ready to do so and are comfortable with whoever they are dealing with. As a rule, when somebody you meet online starts demanding personal information almost immediately, do not bow to the pressure and do not fall to the tact of I have given you mine, so give me yours. Only do that when you are ready.

  • You Are Anonymous

Your personal information is never made public when you register with online dating sites. Whatever information they have about you is for their personal use only. You are required to choose a user name you would use on the site which other site users can see. Other site users will never see your name, email, phone number or address. You have the full discretion to decide who gets it and when, because only you can make it available. It’s up to you to bid your time and when you are comfortable with an individual online make whatever information available. The issue of pictures is a tricky one. Putting a picture of yourself online does not make you anonymous to those who know you. However, the key to success in online dating is having a picture on your profile. You are not required to put up one, but when you do not, your chances of getting any responses from people are down to zero. So it’s up to you, most people do but you are not most people.

  • Large Pool Of People

Online dating gives you access to a huge number of people, more than anything you can get offline in a brick and mortar setting. You are not restricted by geography and are exposed to large number of people without leaving the comfort of your home. This has the advantage of almost guaranteeing that you find a match in a short time and therefore only venture out to meeting offline when things look good. Remember to take the time to create an excellent profile about yourself. Write positive things about yourself and do not put yourself down in your profile.
