2. Avoid over-sharing
More often than not people regret sharing too much information too soon – socially, romantically and even in business meetings or job interviews. Keep things tight and tidy.
You need to think carefully about the early-stage conversations. For example, if someone asks you why you are single, you should definitely tell the truth, but you do not need to share the finer details.

No need for something like this:
‘Ag! You know – the usual. He cheated on me – with one of my friends. He is such a dog. We fought all the time. I found messages on his phone which confirmed the affair. Instead of saying sorry, he told me that it was my fault because I was no longer satisfying him in the bedroom! Can you believe it? I mean, our child is only 12-months old – I am still struggling with a lot of stuff. So, now, here I am on this site, trying to find a nice, normal guy who won’t cheat on me…’
