You should check if the dating site you are using is a member of the Online Dating Association (ODA).
One of the reasons people love dating sites so much is how convenient it is.
With about 40 million Americans using dating sites and apps, it’s becoming more and more common for people to meet and date online.
Not to mention the fact that we spend most of our time connecting through our phones on social apps like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat anyway.
Don't include your surname or any other identifying information such as your place of work either in your profile or when you first make contact.
With recent news about the convictions of internet scammers it’s easy to fear being duped by an online relationship.
