Singles 'should be patient when it comes to online dating'

Finding romance via online dating can sometimes be a slow process, but singles should be patient and wait for their opportunity to come.

That's the advice of author Dianne Sweeney, writer of Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace, who said that not being downcast by a lack of instant success is the key to a fulfilling online dating experience.

She told the Tucson Citizen that singles may embark on some unsuccessful dates before they find the right person, adding that it can be hard to properly judge many partners until after a few meetings.

However, Dianne said that singles shouldn't "get discouraged" and should instead work on tailoring their profile to give themselves the best chance they can.

She said: "You have to be yourself. Do not lie about your weight, age, height. Be yourself."

This advice echoes that of dating expert Rochelle Peachey, who told the Daily Mail last week that giving false information can risk breaking the trust between you and your date, even if you end up hitting it off when you meet in person.ADNFCR-2888-ID-19559999-ADNFCR
