In one of her recent videos, Taryn took the time to talk about her 10 unspoken rules of online dating. While most of her tips in the video are aimed at men, a few also apply to women. Here is a sampling of some of what she says:
> Guys – lay off the emoticons. As Taryn puts it, “manliness as a concept does not include smiley faces. It just makes me not want to make out with you.”
> “If you’re a native English speaker, don’t make me think you’re in phase one of Rosetta Stone.”
> Don’t post cat photos.
> Don’t call too quickly once she gives you her phone number. You don’t want to appear to be an “eager beaver”.
Once Taryn learns how to count, her titles of her videos will be much more accurate. You’ll know what we mean when you watch the video. Enjoy…
