If you post a photo—and you’ll get a lot more action if you do—make sure it’s a recent, un-retouched image that actually looks like you.

Searching Profiles When you search through other people’s profiles looking for potential dates, use your prior assessment about what you’re attracted to in another person as a guide.
Most dating websites and apps allow you to search in very specific ways—age range, type of relationship sought, physical characteristics, smokers vs.
nonsmokers, drinking and drug use, location, level of education, hobbies, religious affiliation, etc.
The best approach is picking the three to five criteria that are most important to you and searching for people who meet these benchmarks.
Again, pick the app that is best for you: Skout, Blendr, and Tinder for single heterosexuals; Ashley Madison for married people hoping to cheat; Grindr, Pink Cupid, and the like for gays and lesbians.
(Many dating websites have a corresponding app, and vice versa.) Be Honest(ish) The number one tip for dating/mating success is to be honest in your online interactions.
Almost anyone, anywhere, can log on, post a profile, find your profile, and contact you.
