Hi, my name is Reka Morvay, I'm a psychologist and I'm going to talk to you about Yahoo Personals. Now Yahoo as well as many other websites has a personals service where you can upload a picture and enter a description of yourself and talk about your interests and search for partners online for maybe just for penpals or maybe a romantic relationship or maybe just to find friends. These online dating sites can be a lot of fun and it's - they can be very encouraging especially for women to put up a picture and just watch the emails flood in as people show an interest in your profile. Now the way to get the most out of an online dating site like this is to enter as much and as interesting information about yourself as possible. So include everything that sets you apart, that makes you a little bit different so that you give people just that little bit of extra information that makes you stand out, because if you just put in your height and your weight and your eye color, you're just going to be one of thousands of people who also have your height, your weight and your eye color. But if you also talk about what your favorite activities are or what your views on certain things are, that gives people that extra information where they say oh, well that's a really interesting person and I want to get to know that person. So it can be a lot of fun to go and participate in these online sites. You have to also use a bit of common sense so never include any sensitive information about yourself, never give away financial details and when you do meet somebody special that you feel like you want to get to know in real life, always use common sense for that first meeting, go slowly and try to make sure that you do not enter into any compromising situations.
