However, remember in the early days of the Internet, people did online dating without pictures at all!And also remember that your “common sense” alarm should be on at all times - whether a profile raises a red flag or not.
Thus, success in almost any kind of flirting and romance is possible.
If you find someone who catches your eye, send an icebreaker or a friendly email.
You won’t get anywhere if don’t put yourself out there. Don’t: reveal too much too quickly Nobody wants to trawl through an essay on your life, either in your profile or via those early emails.
If in doubt, it helps to draft an email, walk away and return an hour later to review it, edit it and, when satisfied, hit send.
This will halt any tendency towards verbal diarrhea and keep your match on their toes.
