If i had to make only 2 rules it would be these 2: 1. Aways be earnest no matter what. Don't act like like you're someone else, accept yourself the way you are, say only truthfull fact about your personal life, face your fears and you will be happy. 2. Don't be scared to meet the person. Once you've made a nice commitment online it's time to pursue it in real life and meet the person, ask them for a date and prepare everything so they really know you're into them. That's as much I can help.
