Don’t immediately start talking about adult toys or send her a “selfie” at the gym all pumped up post workout.Make sure that you add just a lick of sass to your pre-meet up messages.Your Facebook name, profile photo and other personal information you make public on Facebook (e.g., school, work, current city, age) will appear with your comment.

If you’re not proud of your height, say, “I’m short, but what I lack in height, I make up for in over-confidence.” Make your flaws into a joke that you can both laugh about – they’ll be more likely to share theirs, so you don’t get any special surprises when you end up meeting.

Even if you’re enjoying the online messages, don’t push your luck.

“I like biking and hanging out with my friends, but am just as fond of curling up with a good book or nerding out to a good Joss Whedon show,” read the woman’s profile, which includes photos captioned with the phrases “reigning karaoke champ” and “me and Ashley at Hogwarts in Orlando!

”” I wonder if the dating website this fictitious woman joined is loveflutter.com, a site for “interesting people,” replete with a quiz that will let you know just how QI, or Quirky-Interesting you are.

Pretty much everyone loves talking about “numero uno” – so give your partner an opportunity to start gabbing away!

Asking light, simple questions is a sure fire way to keep a conversation going online.

In my experience, it’s best to meet up earlier rather than later – like before you know .

Seriously, men are the worst offenders here – don’t talk about the size of ANYTHING until you at least know what her favorite drink is (and have bought her a few)! Don’t write long essays about yourself, which seem extremely interesting to you, but might not be all that easy to reply to.

Like Ok Cupid (and other sites), loveflutter offers free and paid plans, but unlike Ok Cupid, its design is super-cute.
