DO post a good (recent) picture of yourself with your face in it.
DON’T post an old picture of yourself, a group picture or a picture of just your body.

How many of you have headed out on one of those dates where the person looked absolutely NOTHING like their picture? There’s nothing more potong stim! Try to keep the filters low and show the real you if you’re looking for something more genuine.

 

INTERESTS & HOBBIES

DO be honest about yourself and your interests.
DON’T 
be extra and exaggerate your interests.

This always happens when it comes to music! They’ll say they “love” AC/DC or something, but will be researching it at that moment. Please lah guys, don’t say you like something even when you don’t.

 

BACKGROUND CHECKS

DO talk to someone and get to know them
DON’T go out on dates without knowing much about them

Okay, so this is more of a safety measure. After all, this is the internet, guys. So please stay safe! Always make sure you know who you’re going out with and you even let someone know that you’ll be going out on a date with this person. Touch wood, but it’s better to be safe than sorry!
