When responding to your match via email, use two-to-three-sentence responses to any particular subject.

Don’t: Lead Someone On If you’re not interested in someone, be honest as soon as possible.

Definitely do NOT leave anyone hanging, waiting for an email response from you that you never intend to send. If someone contacts you and you’re not interested, be respectful enough to send a short, succinct, and thoughtful rejection.

Online dating can be an excellent resource in your dating arsenal.

By following the above do’s and don’ts, you greatly increase your chances of future relationship success.

You might think that words like are nice things to say to someone, but no one wants to hear them.

As we all know, people normally like compliments, but when they’re used as pick-up lines, before you’ve even met in person, they inevitably feel…ew.Return an hour later to review, edit, and, when satisfied, hit Send.That way, you avoid unnecessary emotional or verbal diarrhea and also keep your potential match interested.And just as you should always represent yourself fairly, expect the same in return from anyone you meet online.If and when you catch someone in a lie, call that person out on it, report his or her behavior if it’s dangerous or detrimental to anyone else, and move on as quickly as possible.That means accepting that part of the courtship process is a chase. If that person is not interested, he or she either won’t respond at all or will send you a polite Thanks, but no thanks. Don’t: Divulge too Much too Soon Nobody wants to read a long-winded thesis on you and your life, either in your online profile or via those initial email exchanges.
