The Internet Dating FAQ

With every new technology comes a lot of questions. Even with some of the less then new technology there are those that are just not able to keep up. So we have decided that we would put together a listing of common questions and answers with regards to internet dating.

Keep in mind that this is not a complete listing. As a matter of fact you may have some very specific questions that need to be answered. We are here to provide only the general basis and you will have to ask the specific site about the more in depth questions that you may have over all.

What is a profile?

A profile is simply a listing of the specific criteria about yourself that you want the perspective matches to know about you. In most cases it will list first name only because that is a matter of protection. It may also include your vital stats, mate preferences and other such information.

Why do I need a profile?

The profile is going to be the very first bit of information that you present to people that are looking for dating. This means that you should offer them all that you can so they can decide if they want to contact you. All in all it is nothing more then the very first impression that you give some one. 

Is internet dating safe?

For the most part internet dating is very safe. However, that does not mean that you should let your guard down. As a matter of fact you should remain on your toes as much as possible.

There is always the chance that scammers will make it into the ranks of the site and you need to watch out for them.

Why is the profile list first name only?

This is another matter of protection. Without your first name it is very hard for hackers and such to find out any kind of personal information. You are actually protecting your identity and making sure that no one gets any of the personal information about you that you do not want to share.

Should I allow contact away from the site?

If you are just getting to know someone then it is best to remain in contact with them on the site. The internet dating sites usually have a lot of protection methods in place to keep their users safe. This means that you will have the kind of protection that you need while there.

A match wants to meet after only a few minutes what should I do?

Do not agree to meet any one that you just met. That is a recipe for disaster. Despite all the efforts by the internet dating sites, there are some monsters that are roaming around the country side.

So you should be careful about this. Never agree to meet until you are sure of who you are meeting and where. This will be a great measure of protection. If the person is serious then they will be willing to wait until the time is right.
