So, please lower your expectations for any new guy. I cover this topic in my online dating tips for women.
Never get overly excited about a date or invest your emotions in a man who hasn’t yet demonstrated, over multiple dates, that he’s in this for the long haul. Although it’s not what the dating sites want you to do, following this rule will spare you the type of date I describe in Rule #14, where the man has mentally checked out before his first beer. I call the DZ a “sandwich” date because you will sandwich it in between other activities, such as working out or meeting friends for dinner.
Rule 4: Go by a nickname or middle name for the first 3 dates if it makes you feel safer.
A man does not need your real, full name until you have gone out several times and you are sure that he is legit.
At least if he’s taller, I wont feel like I’m completely dominating him (its my preference, I don’t apologize for it). Something I’ve learned is that guys under six feet usually add two inches to their height. I mean, its hard to measure how far above your head someone is.

Even good guys can let their manners slip with women they are socially unconnected to.You may even avoid singles events and other real-life opportunities to meet men because you feel so vulnerable and unsure of yourself. As some of you know, I met my own husband online and have coached many women to the altar through online dating alone.
