Online Dating, How to find a good dating site

With so much of our lives being lived at a whirlwind pace, many of us have turned to online dating as a way to meet nice, single guys and gals. Through a good online dating site, we can get through many of the preliminaries up front and find great guys and girls who are willing to have fun and maybe love us. So what makes a good online dating site?

• A reputable site will always have a good privacy and security policy to help protect us from predators and players. Anyone joining will have been asked to agree to terms of service; which means, anyone breaching those terms can be removed and/or barred.

• Reputable sites have stringent password requirements, which ensure your account is protected.

• Most good online dating sites are well aware of all the problems that come with online dating and provide a means to block someone without concern of repercussion.

• Most of the best online dating sites give you an onsite email address to use during your communication with other members. This protects you by keeping your personal email private. Messages are sent and received in a protected site box that never connects with your personal email address.

• Finally, a really good dating site will provide you with a means of communicating in real time – via a chat or instant messaging feature in which you can use a screen name. This allows you to get to know people before you take the step of revealing your real name.

Take sensible precautions and you will have tonne of fun.
