Now that you are reading this, I am sure you have read somewhere how tricky online dating can be. But is it really? Are those who are complaining doing it all wrong?
Well, if you searched and found this article, then maybe you feel there is more that needs to be done to increase your chances of online success.
I am going to ask you a few questions to see if you are doing it right.
Do you have a profile photo?
When they say a photo speaks a thousand words, there this is the phrase it speaks when someone is busy going through profiles: “I AM NOT ASHAMED OF PEOPLE FINDING OUT THAT I AM DATING ONLINE”.
A picture is what you lead with. And, not just one. Take as many as your membership can allow. Let them be of you engaging in different activities. For instance, you cooking, golfing, taking a run, waking up in the morning, having a great time with your buddies… you know, mix things up!
Having just ‘the one’ pic screws up your chances. People want to know more about you. Give them that ‘more’…
Smile. This I am going to leave it at that.
Another thing you need to do is to make your profile ‘ABOUT ME’ section be as brief as possible. But while at it, make sure all the important stuff has been captured. Unless bored, people just want everything at a glance.
What you post goes a long way to make your profile attractive to other members on the dating site, Do it right!
Apparently, it also pays to play a little ‘hard to get’. Give it a little less than an hour before you reply to a message. However, don’t play too ‘hard to get’. Someone might mistake it for ‘disinterest”.
Now, the funny thing is: if you mention you indulge in fried chicken, it makes you look easy like you are down for whatever. Men and women alike are attracted to people who aren’t ‘up-tight’. Use that to your advantage.
Now that you are well schooled, you should be able to spike someone’s interest.
