Well, according to Myka…asking what people do for a living is very similar to asking how much money they make. People often times become guarded when this questions is asked by a stranger. 


Myka notes that, on most dating sites, you’re working from a few pictures, not an in-depth personality analysis. Meier recommends keeping the conversation light and staying away from a few key topics.

A few other things you should shy away from talking about…marriage, religion and politics. Those are pretty much a given when first meeting someone. Those topics will eventually come up, just give them time. 

Also, most online chats don’t turn into dates…so you don’t want all these personal facts about your life strewn about the dating world. 

Now you know! Happy Dating!
