Here’s Amy’s 10 rules for online dating (along with a bit of personal experience): 1. Keep your words positive, inspiring and optimistic. I’ve never been good at talking about myself.” If you’re not a good writer, figure out the keywords and points you need to make, then ask a friend to help you out. Photos should focus on your waist up, unless you have a great figure. It’s possible to be generic about what you like while still being specific enough to sound interesting. Unless that comedian is one of your deal-breakers, leave him or her off your profile. Perhaps you are an avid NRA member, are passionately Pro-Choice, or a strong advocate for medical marijuana—you may want to leave out things that someone could potentially interpret that information in a way that disadvantages you. If you’ve won a Pulitzer or climbed Mount Everest or for some reason own a jet, this is wonderful news—just don’t share it online. If someone instant messages you while you’re online, go ahead and IM back if you want.Be open about your hopes, dreams and passions and keep things that may be controversial to yourself (you can always reveal more later). Then it’s OK to include one or two full-body shots in your gallery. If you want to use humor, write whatever you’re planning to say down and show it to some friends or coworkers first. With your tone of voice and inflection, it may be hilarious—but out of your friend’s mouth it may fall flat or even be offensive. Odds are you may turn off more people than you attract. These are the types of details to work into a conversation on your first or second date. Be mindful while flirting online, since it’s easy to sound too aggressive too soon. When writing an email or text message, as a general rule only say things you’d feel comfortable and natural saying in person. Otherwise, wait 20 to 23 hours between e-mail contacts for the first few messages. Avoid sending any messages while most people are sleeping, even if you’re wide awake.
