Whether you are using an online dating site, a mobile dating application, or speed dating, you need to gauge your expectations. Regardless of where or how you meet potential partners, it will take time to get to know them—the real them. Who you read about in their online profile isn't who they will be on date #1... and that's not who they will be on date #10. Take your time. Allow the get-to-know-you process to take it's natural course.
