Her owners starved and dumped her in a rural area to die a slow miserable death from starvation

Dating sites are an extremely popular way to get connected with like-minded individuals that have the same interests. However, many people will feel quite nervous when it comes to trying to use this type of site. Let's take a look at a few of the most effective ways to stay safe on the preferred dating sites:

Personal information

A simple rule that must always be followed is the need to stay safe and to be careful with the amount of personal information you give out during the initial conversations. It is best to avoid giving out personal details until a few in-person meetings have taken place. You can slowly start to give out more information when you feel comfortable.


The initial conversations should relate to regular things, such as what you get up to in your day-to-day life. Try to find things that interest both parties and expand your conversations from there. The ability to stay flexible in your topics will help to increase the likelihood of finding a successful match. Also, it is important to get involved in conversations when they start and not to be overly shy. Additionally, there are many different ways to get involved with a website and its users, such as sharing likes and dislikes.


Every user needs to complete their profile thoroughly. This will help to find other members that have a particular interest in your lifestyle. A poorly completely profile often comes across as not serious or fake and unlikely to attract the desired attention.


Make sure to invest a little time to shortlist the most promising dating websites that match your particular interests. There are dating sites to match literally every interest, so you shouldn't have too much difficulty finding something that suits your needs. Also, there are plenty of review and comparison sites that can help to identify the best options.


There is a high chance that you will need to send plenty of messages before you start to get worthwhile replies that may be worth taking further. Plus, it is important to be patient and avoid sending multiple messages to other members that interest you.

Block Button

Apart from withholding personal information, there are also other ways to stay safe and avoid contact with those you don't feel comfortable with. Most of the dating sites include a block button that will instantly stop a conversation with someone you deem to be rude, aggressive or inappropriate.

One thing you can do to enhance the chances that you can find love online, or that you can meet a man or woman who will share your life and your love and make you happy, is to write a great profile.

A profile that stands out will intrigue a few women and make them want to find out who the guy behind that profile can offer to them.

Accordingly, here are some online dating description examples for men to help you in that regard, if you are a man.

1. Let The Women Know What You Love And Why You Love It
Show what you like instead of just stating it or just telling it. It will give the women who visit your profile the impression that you are an interesting guy who is communicative and who likes having fun. Research also shows that showing what you love makes women feel that you are an adventurous guy who can make them have fun and they are more likely to send you a message so that you can connect.

Additionally, let the women know why you love what you love. It will give them a deeper peep into who you are and it will make your profile look a lot more interesting.

So you may write, "Last Saturday morning, I was kinda bored in the house and so I picked up my swimming apparel, drove to the swimming club here in Kumasi where I live, changed my blue jeans and yellow T-shirt when I got there, and jumped right into the pool. Ooooh!, the water felt so good on my skin! That is the way I spend my weekends. It helps to keep me fit and healthy and it helps me to keep my 6-foot frame in shape."

2. Let Them Know Your Idiosyncrasies
If you want the women who view your profile to get to know you well so that they can know whether they can connect well with you, share things about yourself that many men will not dare to share. For example, share some of your quirks and weird behaviors and odd things you do when you are alone in your room or when you are with your friends. It will make your profile look unique.

For example, if you love watching movies, you may write, "I enjoy watching thrillers most of the time, but sometimes I also watch romance movies or fantasy movies. You may have never heard this but do you know that I enjoy watching these movies when I am wearing my shoes? Even if I am in bed, I enjoy them better when my feet are covered. Funny isn't it? Guess I am some kind of weirdo, but that's me. And I can assure you you will enjoy watching a very suspenseful scene in a thriller with me. I shout and scream when the antagonist is tiptoeing to snuff out the life of the victim... " and so on.

Or, you may share how you feel when your sister gives you a hug or what goes through your head when you wake up in the morning. Stuff like that will tell a woman that you are an open guy who is prepared to share intimate information with her and she will trust you more.

Consequently, a lady who visits your profile may think to herself, "Wait a minute! This guy does not seem to be like all the other guys I have met on this site. What else has he got up his sleeves? Let me contact him and find out!"

3. Do Not Focus On What You Do Not Want, But On What You Want
Showing that you are a positive guy can make you win a high rating in the eyes of the women on the dating site. You can let women know that you are positive when you tell them the kind of woman you want, and not the kind of woman you do not like.

For example, instead of writing, "I love watching thrillers. If you know that you do not love thrillers, don't contact me," write something such as, "I am looking for a woman who loves watching romance movies, reading romance novels, but who does not mind watching thrillers too!" This will make you look more friendly and sociable.

I rejoined a few days ago. I've belonged to Match 4-5 times since the early 2000's. I rejoined because they have the largest database of potential partners. Before I came back to Match, I was on a couple of smaller "niche" dating sites, but they just didn't have enough members to be effective in what is essentially a numbers game.

At this point, I've recently only "dated" one person I've met on a dating site. I was more interested in her than she was in me, and we wound up friends, but she woke me up, lightly cracking me open to realize how much I want a partner in my life. But since I can't yet speak to the dating part on internet dating this time around, this article is going to focus on meeting people. It will also be focused on a man's perspective but I hope it will be useful to women as well.

The last time I was on Match, my inbox literally blew up with over 90 responses to my profile in a couple of days, and that is happening again as I'm writing this. I don't attribute that to me being some kind of fabulous guy (although I think I am!). I think the real reasons my inbox blows up are twofold: One, as a professional writer and a men's and couple's counselor, I write a really good profile, and I'd like to think that's part of it, but I also think it's because I'm fresh meat.

Fresh, red meat. To quote the Eagles, "There's a New Kid in Town." The ladies are aged, yes but there's a huge market of women 60 and older, divorced and widowed, that are looking for partners

I only need one. The right one.

Separated, Not Divorced

I don't just immediately jump in when a previous relationship ends. I've been married twice and my personal style is to get to know who I am as a single person again before I unfairly foist myself on a new potential partner. As a consequence, I'm somewhat amazed that a portion of the women who initiate contact with me are only separated, their divorces not yet finalized.

I can't help but wonder how someone can proceed to move toward another relationship before their current relationship is complete. It may be over, but it's certainly not completed and it's doubtful that such a person has had an opportunity to fully heal. It's just too fast. My experience supports the idea that these are people who can't bear to be alone, and they invariably wind up carrying the problems of the last relationship into the new relationship, creating a cycle of broken relationships. When I'm contacted by one of these women, I politely decline engagement as I'm not interested in dating someone who is still married. This is not a moral judgment. It's a discernment based on knowledge of how things usually work. Not always, of course, but who wants to roll those dice?

The Younger Woman

I'm amazed by the number of "likes" I get from women who are younger than both of my daughters. My first thought is always, "what are you thinking?" Some actually invite me into conversation, but most don't and are simply flirting through their "likes, likely "fishing" for an older man who will take them on for whatever reason, including supporting them, or being a sugar daddy, or just seeking the father-like approval that they probably did not get from a male figure earlier in life.

Maybe some of them are turned off by the awkwardness of many younger men and are looking for a degree of non-threatening contact by men who are easily assuaging and attending to their own inadequacies around mature women. There may be a small number of younger woman - and men - who actually benefit from one of these May-December relationships, but here we go again, rolling the dice on something that reasonably has very little chance of working.

My own personal rule about age dating has been that I'll likely not even consider someone who is not at least 10 years older than my oldest daughter. That's becoming less of a problem since my oldest daughter will be turning 50 next year. I also like the concept of dating "age-appropriately," whatever that may mean to each individual, and it is a personal choice.

You've Got A Friend

Clearly, some of the strangest emails I get is where someone claims to be writing for a friend. They begin by saying their account is expiring soon, that they're not going to renew, and they've got a really shy friend that would be a perfect match for me, and here's here email address, and an admonishment to treat her gently because he's really fragile.

This is wrong on so many levels. First, it violates Match's policy of not giving out email addresses in a first contact. Second, there's no denying that there are many fragile and broken people in the world, but (1) why would they accept an email from someone they don't know if they're so shy, and (2) why would I want to be involved with someone who is that fragile and broken? My shadow loves your shadow?

This is a scam and I wonder if they're specifically targeting older people like me, which brings me to...

The Older Man and Ageism

That would be me. I'm not suggesting that I would or should date older men. I'm touching on how strange it is being in the situation I find myself in: I'll turn 73 later this month, and I was pretty sure I'd still be happily married for the rest of my life. I never imagined I'd be in a situation where I'm not only writing this article, but actually on looking for a partner, hopefully, the last great love of my life, and trying to figure out what exactly that means. I mean, 73! Definitely unchartered territory.

The first thing that comes to mind is that, at 73, I appear to be at the upper end of the Match group of older men. Not the oldest, but definitely close enough for it not to matter. There's good news and bad news: The good news is that there are a lot of men at 60 who look older than I do. The bad news is that I've got bad knees that are, hopefully, replaceable, and that's my next step as alternative Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy did not work for me despite the promises.

Earlier in this article, I referred to the woman who woke me up and gave me the gift of knowing I could love again. I'd hoped I could, and that's why I joined a dating site in the first place. She's 60 and was at first skeptical of even meeting with a man who was 72 and I was put into the position of pursuing a "younger" woman. Using humor, I charmed her into meeting with me and we both immediately liked each other and I'm extremely grateful for her valued friendship.

One of the challenges here is that, on one hand, some women both young and old, say age is relative, that age is just a number. They are correct. On the other hand, if another woman states a certain age is too old - or a man says a woman is too young - they are also correct. Yes, both things can be true.

When I first got on a dating site a few months ago, I remember thinking, "So many of these women look like my aunt," and then one morning I walked by my mirror and realized I look like my uncle. Welcome to my awareness of my own ageism.


It's interesting that the drive to love and to be loved is so strong in us, no matter what our age. I'm grateful to my friend for helping to wake me up to not deciding I'm just going to be alone. I considered it... briefly.
