How to Succeed at Online Dating
While online dating doesn't work out for everyone, this is usually because those people didn't work at making it work for them. There is a way to win at the online dating game, however. First, you must realize that online dating services are really just a tool, but you have to learn to use that tool effectively in order to get what you want out of online dating.
Pay for membership
If there is a trial offer or free membership, take advantage of it to see if the site in question is something that you are interested in, but once you find that you are interested, go ahead and upgrade to fully paid membership, so that you can use and enjoy all of the site features - particularly the features that allow you to communicate in an unlimited way with other site members. Paid membership to an online dating site is really an investment for your romantic future, if you learn to use the site in a way that benefits you.
Don't Expect Miracles
Online dating, just like offline dating, takes time. You may not find your perfect match the first day - or even the first month. There are millions of people who are participating in online dating, and it simply may take a while to find the right one. Again, an online dating service is a tool, not a miracle drug that is going to bring your soul mate to you instantly! Building relationships takes time - and effort.
Put Time and Effort Into Your Profile
Don't rush through setting up your profile. Make sure that it has an outstanding, attention grabbing headline, and that you use the profile to really let people know who you are, and what you are seeking. Remember that there are thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even millions of online daters out there, and your headline and profile must stand out from the crowd if you want to be noticed.
Use a current photograph
Don't make the mistake of using a photograph of someone else, or a photograph of you twenty years ago! Use a current photograph, and make sure that it is a good one. If you don't have any good ones that you like, get new pictures taken. Don't worry if you don't think you are the hottest thing out there - to most, it really won't matter. They just want to know what you look like, just as you will want to know what they look like.
Honesty Is The Best Policy
Don't lie. It's as simple as that. Be honest about who you are, what you look like, and what you are looking for. By being honest, you will save yourself and others alot of time, and you will save yourself and others alot of heartache as well. A relationship that is built on a lie never lasts. So, be honest about yourself and what you want from the very beginning.
While honesty is the best policy, you can't be pushy. You have to keep the conversation upbeat and light. Keep a positive attitude. If you are looking for marriage, note that if you say this right out of the gate, most people will run for the hills. Nobody wants to dive into a serious relationship with someone that they haven't had the chance to get ot know better!
Use Communication Features To Your Advantage
When you find profiles that interest you, send them an email or a flirt. Communicate by email, and then move on to using instant messenger. As your mutual interests grow, move the conversation to telephone - but only do so when you are comfortable with that, and always keep yourself safe. Remember: Email, instant messenger, phone - and maybe in person - in that order.
Use Safety Measures
It is always a very bad idea to give out too much personal information over
the Internet. As much as you think you know someone that you've met online,
you really don't know them until you have met them in person! Even then,
you don't want the person to know where you live. You can tell them what
city and state you live in, but not your street or address. You can tell
them what you do, but not where you work. Tell them your first name, but
not your last name. Use your screen name until you feel you can trust them
enough to share your first name, but keep your last name private!
