Hi, I'm Donna Barnes. I'm a life and relationship coach and the owner of NY Dating Coach in New York City. In this clip we're going to talk about online dating. And online is a great way to meet somebody, but there's a few things that you should know about it. First, when you write your profile, try to be really honest. Everybody assumes that everybody else out there is lying, so if you're not, then that's a good right off the bat that someone will really respect you. Try to have a picture to look like you. It's really disappointing when you show up and you're excited to meet somebody and then they look nothing like their picture. So, really look like your picture. If you can, have someone take a recent picture, you know of you, so that you can really show up looking like your picture. And when you do go to meet somebody, don't ever... you know make sure you do it in a public place and make sure you tell somebody else where you're going and give them the contact information about that person, just in case anything were to happen. Dating online is safe. People do it all the time, but most importantly it's a great way to meet somebody because it gives you access to so many more people than you would have had a chance to meet just going out to a bar or something like that. And I think people have their guard up in bars so... people that are online are there because they really want to meet somebody, so you already know that going into it. So have fun looking and try online dating. This is Donna Barnes, life and relationship coach in New York City.
