Still, navigating the world of online dating can definitely be tricky—what kind of message is clever, but not creepy?What the hell are you supposed to say about yourself in your profile? [pagebreak] OUT-OF-TOWN AND OUT OF TOUCH The scenario: “A guy sent me a message saying that he wanted to meet up for a drink, but when I asked when he was free, he said he was ‘going out of town’ for the next two weeks and that we should schedule something after.” — Andrea, 31 The problem..the solution: If you tell a girl you’re “going out of town,” she’s going to assume you’re busy dating other women.Half the fun of going out is getting to know someone new, so allow yourself to let that happen organically." —Oliver B."Please don't compare us to your exes—out loud or even in your head.Sometimes horror stories about them can make for fun discussion, but don't ever bring your ex into the conversation if it's not called for.By the time your date comes around, she’ll already have lost interest or have found someone more attentive.If you really are going away, wait until you get back to ask her out.
If you seem offended by it, that's as far as we go." —Steve M."Girls should try to avoid pre-judging before a first date.“I asked my friend to describe me, and here’s what he wrote…” is a cop-out.By writing this in your profile, you’re telling people that you’re not smart or self-aware enough to write it yourself.In 2000, Brenda Allison graduated from law school and moved to Chicago.There, she found a supportive group of friends, an apartment within walking distance of the city's hottest spots..absolutely no time to date.You do this by being original and, above all, specific about your interests.
