Rule #32: Don't talk politics on a first date.

Looking for Mr. Right? Meeting guys has never been easier thanks to dating sites like Match.com, and phone apps like Tinder. But going from "swiping right" to love? That's trickier, says Tina B.

Avoid rants about exes, scandalous photos, or any other content that could scare a great guy away.
