The key to all Internet Dating is to find the best match for your specific requirements, this is pretty straight forward. However, the responses will only be as good as the information provided by you when you start the search. Yes, the variables you personally enter in the question and answer process of any Internet Dating Site will determine your end result. We will continue to stress the importance of this multiple times throughout our communication with you.
Above all else, you must be honest in everything you say. This is not the time to be clever or aloof. If you really want a real long lasting relationship then you need to understand the energy you personally put out is what you will obtain in return. Therefore, if you send out half truths, or attempt to hide information, which someone could construe as not being totally honest, it will backfire on you in the long run. Just put all your cards on the table - in exact detail - tell them what you are looking for in a clear concise statement of fact. Open your heart let the love come forth knowing that your mate is out there, and is just waiting for you to show up.
If a hurt from a past relationship has closed your heart, and you are still working on it, please do your best to put it behind you. If you have not forgiven past perceived wrongs, you will only sabotage your new relationship by dwelling on the past. A new relationship must start from scratch. It doesn't matter what happened before, now is now. Please be honest with yourself...are you really ready for a relationship? If not, maybe some personal counseling is the right process for you right now to assist you in getting ready.
