    Yep, pretty solid advice. The only thing I would add is not to get drawn into too lengthy a dialogue online before having got your intended man/woman to the first ‘offline’ date – it’s good to talk and have fun but your interaction needs to be geard towards meeting up with them in person, or else you end up with one more MSN buddy.
