It's all about getting noticed! Here are a few tips to
get the most out of flirting or dating online:
Think about it - if you were going out to hoping to meet
someone, chances are you'd take a bit of time to dress
up or down depending on your style and the type of
person you'll be looking to meet. The same goes for your
The old saying about first impressions was never truer
than now online; you may only have a few seconds to make
the right impression. So take a while to get it right.
Most importantly, be honest. If you claim to be Arnie in

well-written lines will go along way to getting noticed.

attention. Choose photos that are clear and uncluttered.
Ideally, use photos that have you as the only person in
the picture to avoid confusion. Besides, your friends
and family might not want to be published online, so
respect their privacy.
Update Your Profile
