Be wary of revealing a lot of personal details about yourself until you feel sure about the person.
If a man uses words like ‘intimacy' and ‘massage', talks about his – or your – physical attributes or makes sexual references in his initial emails, then beware: he's probably a creep.
Just be prepared for its addictive, drug-like pull.
I thought I was an emotionally stable human being before this — that theory has since been challenged. Praying for wisdom and grace for us all as we walk this out.
This year has been my initiation into all things online dating, and let’s just say that the tears factor has been exponential.
When you do the exclusive thing prematurely, you are devoting significant time to this person who is completely unknown to you.
It’s like putting a non-refundable down payment on a used car without even checking under the hood.
Yes, it seems so right and loyal and kind to only date one person at once, but let’s remember something: This person is a stranger.
I don’t care how much info they have on their profile — they are a stranger. If one pursues you consistently, faithfully and asks to be exclusive, then be exclusive.

• Ladies, apparently a lot of us are posting high-school-circa pictures of ourselves on these dating sites, and we need to stop doing this. In your profile, use specifics about who you are and what type of relationship you’re hoping for.
