Think about joining a screening service like P411 or date check. Not sure how it works for foreigners, but if it a try. If you can join, I know that P411 provider ads will mention "newbie friendly". That doesn't mean you get a free ride on screening, just means they'll work with you to get you screened. Finally read the FAQ for Newbies board. Use the TER General Boards drop down window to locate.
Once you've found it read the "self help center" especially if you've never hobbied. I've also included a list of top providers. And trust me on this, all the top providers screen.
