How much information do you share with potential dates?

Ah, online dating! I've already written about some of my experiences, but one of the dilemmas of online dating is how much to reveal about yourself and when.

Basically, until I meet them, I'm a name, rank and serial number kind of gal. I'll talk about my interests, my passions about life, but no specifics about where I work, where I live or where I play.

Until I get to know them, they get my first name only and I never meet with them too close to my house.

How about you? What kind of information do you share online and why? Take our poll and tell us.
