You’re not swiping a real person; you are swiping a veneer.They might end up being the biggest pain of your existence, and they might be really good at keeping that from you until they choose to let you know. You have to be really good at getting to know the real person.
(I'm talking about your cell phone number, your personal email address, your LIVING ADDRESS etc.) First of all, you're really able to tell a lot about a person based upon how he writes.
So before you take the conversation to the phone, invest some time in reading his emails and profile.
I’m not advocating arranged marriages, but I am strongly advocating the The principles there are that you don’t make these decisions in isolation; that wise people who know you very well and care about you very much are in favor of it; and that decisions are based on who the person really is, as evidenced by how they act even before meeting you. First of all, I’m sure you know someone who met online and has a “happy” marriage (so do I). However, there are some things about online dating that can make it less likely to work out.
Online dating adds another step to the “dog and pony” show of dating. And to paraphrase Proverbs , profiles are deceiving and pictures are fleeting.

Thank you for your examples.)

If they are a stranger to you, then hopefully they are not a stranger to someone you know and trust who can say “I’ve known so-and-so for many years and they have proven to be faithful and genuine and (list the qualities you are after here).” If we did this, I’d bet divorce rates would go down. Marriages would last longer (like until death), and we’d have a greater satisfaction in them. Putting your best foot forward can and will yield positive results when consistently applied.So get off to a fresh start by revamping your existing profile or by signing up for the first time with a great new profile.2) Don't share any personal information until you've exchanged at least four to five meaningful emails within the original site.Post realistic but flattering photos, and write something about yourself that is intriguing and tells your suitors what you are passionate about and what makes you tick.
