2. Be (Kinda) Generous With Personal Information

Notice I didn’t say be generous with other people’s personal information. Follow this key rule: If you wouldn’t fill it out on a questionnaire, don’t share! For instance, say “I love this restaurant” versus “my boyfriend and I love this restaurant.”

Don’t scare away potential girlfriends with info overload. Let them get to know who you are before you volunteer the goodies about the cast of characters in your life. Remember: These women are strangers so don’t say anything to them about yourself that you wouldn’t want to hear back from someone else.
