    One thing I will advise with online dating is to not judge too harshly based on petty stuff like spelling or grammar. I only say this because if I had done this I may have passed up the opportunity to meet my DP. From the first email he sent me I could see that grammar wasn't his strong point, but thankfully I was able to see past that as he actually seemed like a lovely guy (we emailed back and forth in the days leading up to meeting with him trying to convince me to meet up, which we did 6 days after he first sent me a 'kiss' on RSVP).

    My advice is to try to overlook superficial silly stuff and meet sooner rather than later so that you don't waste your time on people you may not have chemistry with in person. I had every second weekend kid free and my plan was to fill my kid free weekends with dates...then DP sent me a kiss the day after I opened my RSVP account, we met 6 days later and the rest is history! We both shut down our accounts the night we met!

    Before I met up with DP I was also emailing back and forth with about 5 other guys, and honestly they were all pretty nice. Four of them were single dads, one was a teacher my age, one was a sweet guy 4 years younger than me (also a single dad). I could've picked any one of them, but DP's personality shone through and in the end he seemed the most keen to meet up straight away and give it a go.

    Yes definitely tell someone his details, when, where and check in after. Also please drive so you are safer.

    Ps yes you have a right to date he can't say you can't.

    I would definitely meet him somewhere.
    Do you have one friend that you can confide in? That way if you're worried you could always let them know where and when you're going.

    Definitely check in before and after.. During is up to you.

    Definitely meet him don't let him pick you up. That way if he is a dud you can leave. Also if there is someone on here that you trust you set up a system that if you need to leave but don't want him to know why. That you post and someone could call you. It always easier to leave if you get a call.

    Default Dating - how on earth do you do it?

    Sorry but you MUST tell someone IRL that you are online dating! Not negotiable!!

    When I went on dates, I took screen shots of the guys' profiles and sent them to mum, and told her where we were going.

    If you happen to meet a really great guy and start dating, for gods sake please don't keep other guys stringing along. When I met DP I sent an email to the other guys I was emailing saying that "I've met someone and want to see where it goes before I contact anyone else". It's just polite.

    DP dated someone for two months and discovered she was still emailing other guys! (Long story of how he discovered, won't bore you with the details).

    It was great re-reading over this thread. I may have come across someone worthwhile and it's nice to read your comments again in a fresh light.

    Sigh. I starting really liking and having feelings for someone in my single parents network. Unfortunately so did my best friend. Guess who is now seeing him? well it's not me. Turned out to be really awkward . I've now lost one of my best friends. I think I'll forget about men for a while.
