  • See Cyber dating as a training ground - Consider dating sites as a training ground. Learn how to behave in that environment. Discover the do’s and don'ts.
  • Learn to protect yourself - Discover your own natural boundaries and dare to set them up clearly. If you don’t like someone, simply block their messages.
  • Rejection trap - Giving up on that scene with the first sign of rejection or overreacting on a negative message.
  • Expecting too much - Take the cyber scene with lightness and fun. Enjoy and don’t take it too seriously
  • Exclusivity trap - Don’t give all your attention to just one person. Keep a “networking” attitude. Keep your options open.
