Online dating is the best invention the world has ever seen. Consider it: it is like online shopping for sex. You browse profiles, find somebody you prefer and begin a conversation. With any luck, they’ll like you back, and you can look forward to a new life of love, love and passionate lovemaking.
It is like that game in the funfair where you need to shoot a row of ducks, but nobody ever seems to have the ability to reach the target. Fixed or not, it is frustrating, and unless you are a crack Marine Corps sniper, you may frequently go home empty-handed. As a “veteran” of over 60 internet dates and almost ten decades of negotiating my way through, many sites out there, I know first-hand how hard and frustrating it may be. I have made countless errors, put up stupid images, sent even more idiotic messages and had “certain things” vanish into thin air. This experience has allowed me to determine what the hell I’m doing, and I want to share some of my tips and tricks with you. The following ideas are for both women and men, and they’ll hopefully save you some of the frustrations I went through.
It is all about your main profile picture.
This is true to a certain degree. For certain, what you write on your opening message and your profile will dictate a whole lot of your success with internet dating, but the single most important factor is how a person responds to your profile image.
The key to writing an intriguing profile
It almost does not matter what information you write on your profile so long as you’re conveying sincerity and vulnerability. This is not a CV; you are not auditioning for anybody, so don’t write it like you’re trying to impress. It will come across as needy, and although you might have the sexiest picture possible, your odds of meeting someone such as Virietis Mekle Sieviete.
Write a Good Bio
Vulnerability is the gist of opening up yourself without fearing rejection. Are you a geeky baseball player? Are you enthusiastic about computer programming? Have you got a fetish for licking stamps? Ask your very best friend or someone you trust to proofread your profile to check what you’ve written is a fair and honest representation of your character, and you are not coming across for Sieviete Meklē.
You’ll have undoubtedly seen those tabloid online dating horror stories, but they’re so rare it’s not even worth worrying about. Meeting someone online may be the safest way of dating. I say this because you’ve got the choice to check out everything about them before that date, which you cannot do if you meet somebody in a pub or club. If companies can use the world wide web to check out prospective employees, you can do the same.
