Online Dating and How it all Works
Some people mistakenly believe that only loser's who cannot get a date otherwise
resort to online dating. This couldn't be further from the truth. In fact,
people who engage in online dating do so for various reasons, but usually
because it saves time, or because there are no compatible quality singles
in their area, or because they want more possibilities.
Online dating sites have members who are fit to be on the cover of magazines.
They have people who are short, tall, small, large, and everything in between.
Don't assume that it is a physical thing that draws people to online dating.
There are people from lower incomes to high incomes. There are professionals
and non-professionals. There are those that have Doctorate degrees, and those
who never even finished high school. Members of online dating sites come
from all walks of life.
Online dating is not only popular among users, it is a very lucrative business
for those who own the sites as well. This, of course, is an indication that
it works. Online dating has been around almost as long as the Internet has,
and it is not only still thriving, it is growing by leaps and bounds.
Online dating allows members to meet people that they would never have met
otherwise. This may be due to location, work schedules, or other factors.
But online dating sites do away with all boundaries in terms of location
and timing. Online dating also allows people to learn more about each other
without making any type of commitment, and in a safe and anonymous environment.
The first step to successful online dating is to find a site that caters
to your wants and desires. For instance, you may not have any preferences
related to ethnicity, but if you do, there are sites that cater to just about
every ethnic group. There are sites that cater to gays and lesbians. There
are sites that cater to Senior citizens. There are sites that cater to
Christians. There are sites that cater to people who practice alternative
religions. There is something out there for everyone, and it is just a question
of finding that which caters to you.
The online dating sites offer varied services. For instance, some dating
sites only offer the ability to view and post profiles, and to communicate
with other members. Some provide this and matchmaking software. Some have
advanced search features, while others do not. Figure out what features you
would like to use, and find a site that has those features.
Most sites have a free membership option, and possibly a trial membership
option, as well as paid membership. It is a good idea to give the free membership
a spin, and then advance to the trial membership before paying a full membership
fee. This gives you the opportunity to ensure that the site does indeed meet
You will need to create a profile that will draw potential prospects. People
spend hours, days, and sometimes even weeks creating the perfect profile.
It takes thought, and it takes effort, and this is generally the longest,
hardest part of getting into online dating.
Most sites will ask for basic data, such as your weight, height, age, likes,
and dislikes. They may ask what type of person you are searching for. Most
will ask what your hobbies or interests are. Again, don't just be basic and
boring, dress it up...but be honest. Include a picture. If possible, include
several pictures, and if video is allowed, create and add a video. Honesty
is vital. Remember that you are seeking a relationship, and anything based
on a lie is doomed to failure.
Unfortunately, most people are attracted to people based on looks. It is
important to realize that regardless of your looks - or someone else's looks
- who that person is, or who you are, is what will matter in the end.
The site will require contact information from you. This information is not
shared with the members of the site. You will create a screen name, and other
members will contact you through the site, and the site will (usually) forward
messages to you, or alert you that there are messages in your inbox at the
You cannot just post an outstanding profile and wait. You need to search
profiles as well, and start contacting other people. This is the fastest
way to get results.
