Secrets of an online dating guru

She is definitely going to feel awkward with her appearance and will hope you find her attractive.

If you are skeptical about online dating, join the club.

But, before you write it off completely, go to one of the above sites and do a free search. So, if you are out at a bar or club and you see an attractive woman, you will have to approach her to meet her.

Let's cover some of the basic must's to successful internet dating: 1) The most important thing to have on your profile is good pictures. Initial attraction is so critical when beginning a relationship.

If it is not there, the two people will never come together.

A few final notes: * Never use the "wink" function. If you're comfortable with that, reply with your number, and we'll take it from there." * When on the phone, be sure to keep it very light, again using humor as much as possible. * The first date needs to be something where no $ is spent. Sometimes, one or both of you are not happy with the look of the other.

Winking is for women to signal their interest to you. * Feel free to ask for her phone number after a couple of rounds of messages. People often put up very flattering pictures, which don't resemble their actual look in real life. You don't want to walk away from a first internet date having spent $50 on a meal do you?

Be sure you check out the profiles of the women without pictures. Often, these women are VERY attractive and don't have a pic up because they want to avoid getting 50 emails per day from guys online. They post a profile in hopes that someone will actually READ it (hint) and treat them like a person, rather than a hot body.

Be sure though that you get a picture from her before you meet her. It is also true that very unattractive women do not include pictures.
