You should always try to make a good first impression. Just follow common sense and ease into the conversation.
You should pick a realistic user name. Your first name is great, if it is available. You should avoid user names like superlover, etc. No one will take you seriously. You need to be thinking long term when dating.
The profiles of others should be truthful, but don’t make any assumptions. Some people like to have a little bit of fun in their profile. Just because I girl post a picture of herself in a bikini doesn’t mean she wants to show more of herself to you.
