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.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
