Cons of online dating
No longer can you question why the rich, ugly guys get all the women either! Any good playboy or playgirl knows that finding someone is a numbers game.
1 out of 10 will show interest for the average male. What looks like a woman, could be a man, and vice versa! You’re putting yourself out there for the whole world to potentially see.
As Saito said, In the portion where it says “Income”, do you think it is poor taste for a man who earns a lot to highlight his income range, or is better to put “I’d rather not say”?
That said, you might look so hot that you will be inundated with every horny guy or girl on the planet, which is kind of what you want since then you can choose the best. If you are a particularly attractive woman, you may get a disproportionate amount of interest online which you cannot handle. Everything from a recent picture, to your biography should be honest.
If you don’t respond to some, maybe you’ll offend them. If you start off on an honest track, you know that whoever pings you or accepts your interest is truly interested in who you are.
In the bar scene it's all about your looks; you don't have the luxury of putting your best picture out there because—you're out there—in the flesh.
And if you don't physically appeal to your target objective, forget about it; it won't matter if you've got Anderson Cooper's personality.
Unless you are super hot and getting an uncontrollable amount of messages, in which case you don’t need to be online anyway, get back to people who make the effort to want to get to know you. If you don’t want to respond after that, no problem. You don’t want to have another typical profile which says that your favorite movie is The Notebook and you like hiking and long walks on the beach.
