Online dating is a big thing at the moment. Some like it, some think it's a bad idea and some just refuse to try.

So what makes some of us think it's bad? Social media? The newspapers and magazines? We all read about the tragedies that come from online dating, but sometimes, even reconnecting over the internet with an old friend could be fatal. I won't go into that story but I will share with you some ways to try online dating, be confident and stay safe.

The first tip about Online dating is to know a lot about the person you are meeting. Where do they work? What do they like to do for fun? Make sure you talk a lot before discussing a first date. Knowing you have a lot in common is a good thing. It's always a good feeling going into it confident that you have a lot to talk about so the date doesn't fizzle out after 5 minutes.

The second tip is see lots of photos. If they send you lots if photos, (and I don't mean nudes) that is a good thing. If they can show themselves a lot they aren't photo shy, and not just that it's more likely they are who they say they are and that the profile picture you liked so much isn't a photo from ten years ago. Also a skype date isn't a bad idea.

Ok so you've seen 20 photos and you know everything there is to know about your potential date, now what do you do? Arrange a date and invite a friend.

That's tip number three. When you make a date bring a friend. You don't have to let your date know before hand, but if you do it can be a good indication of what they are like. Bringing a friend makes it safe, and if they are just interested in a date then they won't mind a friend coming along. Arrange to meet in a public place and have a signal with your friend for when you feel safe and it's ok for them to leave.

And finally, the last tip is to let someone know where you are going, if you can't bring a friend along or your friend does leave, send a message of where you are going if you leave the place you're at. It's always good for someone to know your whereabouts.

Don't forget, be yourself, use a recent photo on your profile and have fun.
