Smile at the world and the world will smile back at you. Smile in your picture and in your messages, and you’ll be surprised to get so many smiles in return.

Let your qualities shine through- talk about them honestly. You are special, unique, and different- count the ways out loud.

Be honest now and forever hold back pretence. It will save you time, effort, and embarrassments a-plenty.

Be clear and be direct. What is important to you about yourself, about others, about relationships? Stand up and be counted. You never get a second chance to make a first impression!

Tell them all what really makes you laugh. Everybody has a sense of humor- but not everybody has YOUR sense of humor!

Write about yourself in detail- talk about your interests and hobbies, your achievements and goals. People will read on if they see something they like.

God is in the details - the more the merrier. Lots of people enjoy movies, but not so many enjoy the movies YOU enjoy. Give your Style away!

Are you seeking real love? Companionship? A date for graduation? Be honest and clear about your goals, share them openly- better now than later!

Speak your mind: some people will not like what you say, but it will save you the time and effort of dealing with those people in the first place.

When writing your profile- be yourself- let them know who you are for real. Don’t put “make up” on your words.

Use a current picture. Don’t use your 1979 picture because you looked better then- that’s a BIG no no… even if you had better hair days then…
