What you need to know before you jump into the online dating pool
Bumble, Tinder, OK Cupid, Hinge, Coffee Meets Bagel - it seems like new dating apps are popping up every day. How do you decide which app works better for you? How can you make your dating profile rise above the rest? We get the answers to these questions and more as we talk with Meredith Golden, the founder of SpoonMeetSpoon.com.
We put our own Mike James in the hot seat, and Meredith helps him improve his online dating profile (Spoiler alert: He’s doing it all wrong). Is it OK to wear sunglasses in your photos? Hat on or hat off? Find out the do’s and don’ts of creating a great dating profile.
Dating can be fun, but it can also be risky. Here are some common sense tips to stay safe:
- Meet during the day at a public place.
- Don’t give out any of your information such as your phone number, address or email.
- Stick to messaging on the app until you feel safe.
- Let someone know where you are and have them call you during the meet so they know you’re safe.
