• Tip #1: If you're not familiar with technology or unsure what to write on your profile, ask a younger friend, relative or co-worker to help you.Don't let a lack of familiarity keep you from participating in online dating.During a phone chat you'll get a better sense of whether your personalities click.Also, by taking it slow, you are more likely to see inconsistencies in their behaviors and actions.My advice is to wait at least one week before you meet face-to-face.
Don't have your date pick you up or drive you home.
In fact, research shows that more than 40 million Americans (40 percent of all singles) use online dating services.
It has become a very successful way to meet that someone special.
• Tip #2: Be completely honest in your profile and photo.
You don't want to lie about your age, your background or your personality.
