GETTING THE BEST FROM THE ONLINE DATING EXPERIENCE
In order to make the most of your experience there are some common sense tips that we recommend that you consider when writing your profile and uploading pictures. Firstly, be honest and realistic about yourself and the type of person that you would like to meet. Make sure that you upload a recent photo that reflects how you normally look - you are far more likely to be viewed and receive messages from members if you have a photo. Don't be shy!
OUR ADVICE TO YOU
Your safety is very important to us. When chatting with members do not freely give personal information, address, telephone numbers etc until you are comfortable to do so. Build a relationship with matches and make sure that you always stay in control of situations - if you do not feel comfortable do not be pressurised or compromised. In the vast majority of cases people do act with integrity and honesty however, do use your common sense when communicating and building a relationship with members.
When using Datebybrand do be choosy! Take time to familiarise yourself with the way in which the site works; remember that when exchanging mail with potential matches use the security of the sites mail system which is never disclosed to third parties therefore guaranteeing your privacy. Take time to establish relationships and don't be hurried into passing your contact telephone numbers.
HINTS ON USING THE SITE
Your profile is important! This is an obvious comment but do take time and seriously consider the information that you write about yourself. Imagine that you are at a dinner party or club and you are introduced to someone for the first time - then imagine that you are asked what interests you have. Be concise but do impart as much information you can that fits your lifestyle, character and personality. Don't be bashful - try to be enthusiastic and engage potential matches so as to make it easy for them to write to you. Be honest and frank when describing yourself and ALWAYS try to upload a photo!
