Online dating tips

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

With 40 million Americans logging on for love, finding your perfect match can be overwhelming.

Laurie Davis is an e-flirt expert and author of the book "Love at First Click." Laurie says online dating helps you meet people you may not otherwise cross paths with.

Your picture and profile are important. Laurie recommends four to six photos. Show your face clearly and wear bold colors so you stand out in the sea of faces.

What you write in your profile is important, too.

The purpose of online dating is to get out there, so start messaging people. A good way to start, ask a question.

Don't stick to just "your type"; you never know who you might fall in love with.
