Here are the 3 critical secrets to online dating success, according to dating expert and founder of LastFirstDate.com Sandy Weiner. Remember that a person is not a profile—know what you are looking for and what you “must have” in a partner, but understand that there may be discrepancies between what they say about themselves online and how they are in reality. Maximize your own online profile—write something that is authentically you, telling a story that is clear, specific and accurate without resorting to vague adjectives. Post your best pictures in your profile—this means no selfies, no group shots, no partial shots of your body and no pet shots. If you follow these three tips, you will simplify your online dating experience.
