Ladies, if you are looking for love on the Internet, I strongly recommend you present yourself as a strong woman who respects and loves herself.

Women with confidence and self-esteem know their greatest assets are intelligence, personality and a moral code. By sending provocative pictures to a match, you are sending the wrong message.

The kind of man you want to be with will be turned off by your sexual openness, not attracted to it. Men want a lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets. This means your man should see you as a lady first and a sexual goddess later.

Build your online relationship with open, honest communication and PG-rated behavior. If a guy asks you to send him sexy or half-naked pictures, move on, honey. He is out for one thing — sex.

Quality men look forward to sharing a special level of intimacy with you, the kind that comes after courtship and an appropriate length of time.
