  • Be honest - you want to make sure that you attract someone who is right for you. At the end of the day you don’t want to have to wade through a flood of people, that just aren’t a good fit for you. So honesty is the best policy.
  • What is your brand about? - Do you want to inspire, or are you all about lifestyle - what is your personality, your vibration, it should be reflected here.
  • What are your goals? - You need to let people to know what your relationship goals are. Putting this front and center will help you screen out people who are not a good match for you. If you are not looking for the same type of relationship, there will be heartache ahead so avoid that and find someone who has similar goals upfront.
  • Remain incognito - You need to make sure that you are safe online so don’t give away any personal information that would enable someone to track you down until you are ready. So don’t talk about where you like to eat, drink, visit or shop save this information until you meet them.
  • Never use your real name - make up a name to use online that reflects you but doesn’t allow people to track you down and don’t give anyone your phone number until you've meet them and you are comfortable.

I know a guy who put himself on Match with a picture of himself in front of one of his antique cars. He wanted to look cool. The results were less than cool. A person has to be careful of their message. If one packages himself like a chunk of cheese, who will he attract? Have to think about everything. Thanks for your good advice Gayle.
