Here's a tip: Not many thirtysomethings still wear a high school letterman jacket, and most fakers don't have 10 different stolen photos of the same attractive person. Once you feel comfortable moving to the next level, feel free to share your personal email or chat address, or better yet try Face Time or Skype.Now, for those who don't find your i Pod or computer's monitor to project you in the most flattering light (I am one of you), keep your "Skype date" short!A frightening number of profile photos can be found that are taken from bad angles, have frowns on faces, or are primarily of the user's pet dog, frog, or a pogo stick.
I hear complaints from people all the time regarding the quality of users they're hearing from, or the fact that they're rarely hearing from anyone at all, and without fail, each time I have checked out that person's profile, it's a train wreck!
Even for those who do experience some success online, their profiles often could use a lot of improvement.

Self-taken photos reflected off the bathroom mirror with poor lighting and dirty towels in the background rarely make a good first impression.
On the other hand, if he asks you thoughtful questions about yourself or about something you wrote in your profile, or he tells you about his favorite things, his thoughts on the Civil War, or why he loves dogs but would never want a gerbil, read on! You can avoid daters who aren't serious by sending lots of photos back and forth while emailing and getting to know each other.
