There aren't any hard and fast rules about any of this, but in general, I wouldn't disclose my last name, work place, land-line phone number or email address to someone I had not met. After meeting someone, you can usually get a sense if they are trustworthy or not, then you can reveal more information as necessary. Many women give out a cell phone number, plus have a gmail account set up for email. However, you can just communicate through the site's email.

I don't have much of a problem giving out my regular email address since it doesn't have my name in it--I've really never had a problem w/ it.

I commend you for wanting to use online dating to your greatest advantage!!! So many people just go into it blindly, not sure what to do, or even thinking about it.
