Before your first date

Before going out to meet someone you should make sure you want to meet them, you want them in your life influencing it. Like it or not, everyone we come in contact with influences our lives. Besides that, time is precious and you should spend it doing something you like with someone you like. 
This is where Skype comes in. You should have a video conversation to make sure you are talking to the person in the photo. You should have a voice conversation to see their reaction and pauses.
Having a conversation online involves less risk and less stress compared to a face to face conversation.
However, there are a few things you should take into consideration when using Skype 
A phone or a laptop camera creates low quality images and your partner will look uglier online than it does in real life. 
Your partner might have a virus on their phone sending you weird links on its own, so you should not click on those links unless you are certain they sent it.
Don't worry if your account sent a weird link, this way you get to see how your contacts react and what they really think about you.
Don't be afraid of making spelling mistakes to see how your partner reacts and how compatible you are, don't over do it though, you don't want them to think you have skipped 1st grade.
When someone is rude to you, you can just block them, you don't have to be rude to them back.

Do they like me

When someone talks to you, they either like you or they are willing to accept you. The moment they realize they are not willing to accept you, they will stop talking to you, no matter what you do. So don't worry about whether someone likes you or not as long as they are talking to you. Focuse on trying to figure out whether you like them or not.

How to start online dating

Because we want to make sure you have a pleasant experience dating online, we suggest you to:

Make an email address just for dating.

You can use your real first name, but go with a different last name, just to make sure no one will have enough information to start looking for you and eventually show up at your door.

Set up a Skype account just for this purpose as well!

You will want to see and talk to your match before deciding to meet them in person.

Upload flattering, but accurate pictures.

Put up recent photographs of yourself in both indoor and outdoor light, also a full body shot as well as a close up of your face.

Tell people what kind of person you are looking for in a positive way.

If you won't date a smoker, a drinker, someone with children, make that clear (but not rudely) in your profile. Keep in mind that some smokers, drinkers, single parents may still (for whatever reasons) contact you.

Check your spelling and grammar.

Most people say that poor writing is an instant turn-off.

Check a few times a week to see if anyone new has shown up that may interest you.

People create and delete profiles every day. So you never really know when the right person might show up or when will go away.

Have a phone conversation with a match before any initial meeting.

Even if you talked on Skype, you should verify their phone number as well, and share it with a relative.

Always have the first few meetings and dates in a crowded public place.

By a crowded public place I mean a restaurant. You don't want to go the cinema or a park.

Always tell someone where you are going and who you are meeting. And have someone call you during your initial meetings to see if you are fine.

Give this person as many information as possible, as well as your date's phone number. Your safety depends on them. After all you don't really know who you are actually meeting.

Do not allow anyone but the wait staff and yourself near your drink.

Personally when I go out I only order a sealed bottle of water that I use without a glass. Yes, I know that says I have no manners, but I think it is better to be safe than sorry.

Relax and let your body language create the chemistry between the two of you.

Initial love depends 55% on gestures and 35% on the tone of your voice. So the more agitated you are, the less likely you will be able to create that chemistry everyone is talking about. Yes, it is very easy to fall in love with a relaxed person, that is why before you meet them you should look at the compatibility and the real personality description we offer you about our members.

Dating profile photo

Your dating profile photo is supposed to make someone decide if they like you or not. For that reason, you need a portrait like photo where we can clearly see your face and your eyes and your head, so no masks, sunglasses or hats. Besides the portrait, you should also add a full body picture.

Dating advice for men

As a man you should know that a woman wants you to talk to her, the problem is she is too subtle and you have got to learn to pay attention. Women do not acknowledge men they do not like. Any time you get attention from a women, it is because she likes you. When a woman does not want your attention, she will find a way to avoid it.

being single in a foreign country

Being single in a foreign country and looking for your own nationality

You might say, being in a relationship  with a foreigner is no problem because it happens everywhere and anywhere. As long as two people are in love, that is all that matters, there is really nothing much to argue about. Let them get on with their lives so they can produce beautiful, exotic offspring.

At times, however, it is not as easy as that. And some people might prefer a more conservative approach. But if you happen to be a single conservative person living in a foreign country, finding a date can seem like an extremely difficult task. In this case, Single-and-Looking.com can help you find your own nationality and/or someone who speaks the same language you do.

For example, lets assume you are a single Italian man living in USA and looking for a like-minded romantic Italian lady who happens to live near by. All you have to do is select Italian as the language that you speak and select your state, states near by or where you want us to look for your lady.
