The Mentor Public Library held a "How to Find Love Online" program, Wednesday night.

Cleveland-based dating coach Elana Averbach gives some insight into the world of dating online. She founded the company KickStartLove where she coaches clients in Cleveland and all over the world.

Among the tips are picking the right profile picture and figuring out how to send that first message.

Elana's six red flags to look for when dating online:

- User has no profile picture

- User is not willing to meet in person after four exchanges

- Negativity
