Indicating your physical attributes is usually the next step.Height, weight, hair and eye color and body type are common pieces of data, while some sites ask about piercings and tattoos. When it’s time to make your own profile, you’ll start with some basic information. Some sites use their own internal messaging system.If you’re especially concerned about privacy, it’s easy enough to create a free e-mail account somewhere and use it solely for your online dating contacts.A Singles’ Dating Convention member sent this to me: “I’ve recently joined a different singles’ site and am running into the same issue I’ve had with the previous ones I’ve been involved in.It seems that somehow my profile targets only those that are looking for money, or are spam. For example, the other night I got a message from a lady on Plenty Of and responded to her and then she quickly responded giving me her Yahoo screen name to IM her.
So, how can singles wade through the muck and find true love?But with a seemingly infinite dating pool, especially in major cities, it can be really hard to figure out who might make a good match, and how to present yourself so as to find one.To set yourself apart from the herd, you might be tempted to highlight or exaggerate your accomplishments.This helps preserve anonymity, since a co-worker or family member can'’t accidentally stumble across your profile. Site administrators will communicate with you through this address, and some sites allow messages from users to be sent to your e-mail anonymously.They’'d have to pay for a membership to see a picture of the person they're reading about. When they send you a message, it is routed through the site’s system and redirected to your e-mail without the other user ever seeing your address.
