I was walking on California's Stinson Beach in August when I struck up a conversation with a woman who seemed utterly delightful. Captivated, I invited her to dinner at my house that evening.

The vast majority of people using dating sites are sincere and honest in the information they provide and in their reasons for joining. However, there are exceptions, and you need to be aware of how to keep yourself — and your bank account and savings — protected while meeting people online. Creating your online dating profile: protect your identity and personal information. Get to know people, take your time and trust your instincts. Act with caution and learn more about someone before contacting her outside of the dating site.
Finding the right romantic partner and starting a relationship with them in the 21st century is vastly different than it was several decades ago. And let us not even speak about the majority of the last century. Less and less people opt for the traditional approaches like going to the bars, cafes, parties, and clubs. What is more, nobody nowadays likes to be paired through family, while less and less friends recommend their single friends to each other.

This tip may seem like a no-brainer, but scammers can be creative and convincing as they try to steal your identity. Some major dating apps connect through Facebook and display some of your public information to potential matches.
