Online dating is becoming extremely popular across the world. Call it whatever you want, online dating or internet dating it is now the ‘in’ thing to do, especially for those who are busy with their professional lives or for those who have tried the real dating scene and not liked it. Online dating is fast catching up and even more so in United States of America, Canada and Australia.
People and specially men prefer the privacy and anonymity that online dating gives them rather than blind dates and speed dating.
There are some etiquettes that need to be followed while dating online.
1. Screen Names – This is the most basic etiquette where online dating is concerned as it deals with the first and most basic thing of your online dating profile. Your screen name should reflect on the kind of person you are. Choose screen names that are appropriate. Avoid offensive and suggestive screen names like ‘hot4u’, ‘sexylover’, ‘richhotguy’ and other such names. These are names that are suggestive and just pathetic. Either use your own name as a screen name or use your initials. You do not want to put off prospective love interests just because of your screen name.
2. Respect time – as there are more women than men on online dating sites, women get harassed with the number of emails. Keep your email short, simple and respectful so as not to offend the lady reading it or by taking up too much of her time to just understand your email.
