Whether you're just working up the courage to start online dating or you've been already looking for love on online dating sites like BeNaughty for quite a while, there are some online dating rules that are helpful to understand. 

Check out our list of online dating no-no's to avoid when looking for your perfect match online.

1. Don't Use A Fake Picture

One of the biggest online dating no-no's is using a fake picture. Isn't it just frustrating when your date looks nothing like his or her photos? Use a great picture that shows who you are and don't hide your face behind a hat or a pair of sunglasses. It makes people think you have something to hide.

2. Don't Use A Fake Name

Please, use your real name online, because nothing is a bigger turn-off than having Deathslayer27 send you a message, so show people who you really are right from the start. If you're scared of people seeing your full name, use your first and middle name instead of your first and last name.

3. Don't be Negative

Your online dating profile is all about what you like and want. If you speak aggressively about your past relationships, or things you hate to do, it’s a big turn-off. Everybody likes to be around happy and positive people


4. Don't Use Clichés

Don't write that you like "listening to music", "hanging out with my friend" and cosying up in front of the fire. Who doesn't? After all, you want someone to like you for who you are, so don't shy away from being unique and say something interesting about yourself.

5. Don't Reveal Too Much Skin

Don't post half-naked photo's all over your profile, because it is a bit strange, to say the least. So even if you have the fittest body ever (and especially, if you don't), just be a lady and put your clothes on. Keep it classy!

6. Let Things Play Out

Don't send everyone asking for a date right away. Show the person that you're interested in getting to know him or her first and let the date pan out naturally.

Meeting new people can be very difficult. Online dating can be an excellent way to get yourself back in the dating game. Just remember to yourself. 

Hopefully, these tips will help you to find your perfect partner in no time!

  4. I am so glad I don't have to do the online dating thing (though I did meet my husband online, but it wasn't on a dating site). I am usually way too open at first, which my husband liked but is a turn-off for many people.

  8. The thought of internet dating scares me, thankfully I'm not in the market for a new partner but I would be utterly petrified if I had to find someone over the internet as you hear so many horror stories about fake people.

  9. Deathslayer27 xD These are great tips! I've never tried online dating myself, bar messing around with Tinder, but it is actually a really great way to meet people and it's a shame so many people create really fake profiles! It's only hindering their own search :/

  10. I'm with my 'childhood sweetheart', so haven't had use for these sites but I totally love the point about not writing cliches. I love reading blog posts and people have put a quirky like that I have in common with them! Instantly want to friend them haha x

  11. I wouldn't have a clue with online dating nowadays, I did dabble a little 6/7 years ago before I met my partner (which wasn't through online dating) but I only really set up the profile to make someone else jealous lol x

  12. I wouldn't use a fake profile picture, nor would I speak to someone who doesn't have at least a few pictures of themselves.

  13. I have never used a dating site personally but I do know of some success stories. It's important to stay say online but the dating world has adapted to the way society communicates these days. Great advice

  14. Great post. I am a fan of online dating - it's so hard to meet any decent guys these days, so I figure I may as well up my chances online :)

  15. Great tips lovely.
    I found my other half on twitter lol but we had mutual friends too.
    The world is so small you're bound to know someone that they do too which would prove they are a real person especially if you suspect a fake name or picture
