Online dating tips 2018

Technology has been part of our daily lives. Dating online make it ways as part of it. We can now look for someone we admire online or our partner that we can stay forever. Many of us want to know how can know if we are really meant to be. How do we really handle dating online and how to deal with it?

Here are the online dating tips this 2018:

1. Get the basics down.

It may seem obvious, but it’s worth reiterating that daters who include photos and a personal bio are more likely to attract matches. As Tinder’s in-house sociologist Dr. Jess Carbino told us back in February, the more information a user can share, the better.

“If you don’t provide people with a lot of information, it makes it very difficult for them to start a conversation,” Carbino said. “So I’m always encouraging people to use photographs as an opportunity for people to tell their story, as well as their biographical data to tell a story.”

2. Don’t discount the dreaded “double text.”

Though some of us would rather give up on a match than follow up on an unanswered first message, brave daters might want to rethink that stance. Per data insights from Hinge published in May, a second text doesn’t typically end in disaster. In fact, the numbers crunchers at Hinge found that users who waited about 3 hours and 52 minutes to send a second text got responses more often than not.

So, if a first message goes unanswered, don’t give up so fast. Give it another shot in a few hours. As for a third text? We’d say leave it at two.

3. Protect your personal information.

It’s important that you never give out any personal information publicly and that you’re careful not to give out too much information too soon to someone you’ve recently met through an online dating app or website. Information that you should be careful to protect includes your full name, your place of work, your address, your phone number, whether you have children, email address, credit card details or other financial information.

Think carefully before adding a potential date or someone you’ve just met on social media. Often people’s social media pages contain a lot of personal information so it’s best that these are kept private and just for people you know and trust.

 4. You Have to Go Through It to Get Over It

You, my perfect peach, are not exempt from the agony, effort, and disappointment we all have to go through to find “The One.” You’re going to have bad dates. You’re going to get emails and winks from some creeps. Do not focus on the bad dates or bad apples. Instead, focus on the potential matches who may just end up being your life partner.

 5. Share a Mutual Interest with Any Potential Partner

Mutual interests keep you connected as a couple and allow you to explore life as a tag team. It’s like being married to your best friend, with the bonus of sex! If you spend months or years trying to convert your potential mate to have the same hobbies as you, that is the precious time that could be spent with someone who instinctively shares your interests.


How to stand out in the online crowd

In a crowd where the population is in thousands, how do you suppose to stand out and be noticed?  As more and more people meet online, dating applications flourished. Then, members grew tremendously. Online daters have to be more creative in managing their profiles to be noticed. Some research on online dating professes that it would only take a few seconds for daters to scan online profiles. If something catches their eyes,  then that’s the time that they will focus. Thus, it is very that you will capture attention in these precious seconds.

Have a stellar profile

You know you are unique and you should show it.

Every individual has his or her own quirkiness. Your uniqueness will make you memorable and different from the crowd. You know that you are different but are you showing it? Are you scared of showcasing your unique qualities and just rely on what’s common among the profiles? You should not be – your aim is to be as memorable as possible. This should be the highlight of your profile – to showcase your unique qualities to make the potential partner take a second look at your profile, otherwise, you will just be one of those forgettable ones.

Show how relatable you are to others

Connectedness also requires that you can connect to a person by way of your commonalities. People are drawn to other persons who share something that they can connect with. It could be a shared perspective, a hobby, interests or paces that you like. If these are highlighted, you might find someone who values these things that you love and will establish a connection with you. Thus, in your profile, you have to be specific on presenting yourself and avoid general descriptions

 Choose a picture that reveals your personality


Rather than just featuring a photo with only your face on it, why not try to have a picture of you doing things that you love? In this manner, those who share the same passion as yours can immediately relate to you. You can have pictures of yourself diving, riding horses or traveling. Pictures with you in a group or with pets are not that very relatable as a picture just showing you alone. Most online daters would also like a whole body picture to look at your body frame aside from your facial profile.

Honesty is a good virtue

This is true not just in real life but online. You should not try to hide your flaws under exaggerated descriptions in your profile. People should love you for who you are. If they cannot accept your flaws, just move on and try to find other daters. It will save you from lots of heartaches if you have been honest from the start. Want a second date after the first initial meeting? Be honest in your online profile. But do not be overenthusiastic and reveal everything. There is beauty in being a bit mysterious. Just reveal the necessary qualities that you have to obtain that first meet – up where you can reveal other qualities that you have.


How to make people want you more online.

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.


Which Dating Website Or App Is Right For You?

If you’re a single girl or guy, you may have considered diving into the world of online dating, and been quickly overwhelmed by the sheer number of dating website choices available.  How do you decide?  Which one’s right for you?

The answers, of course, depends on your tastes, preferences, and what you’re hoping to get out of such a website.  While the list below is by no means an exhaustive one, it will give you at least some ideas to help guide your thinking.  The first thing to know though, is that not all sites and apps are created equally?

The first question to ask is whether or not you have a particular aspect of your personality that defines you.  For instance, if you’re a country girl (or guy) at heart, then a website like “Farmers Only” will be right up your alley, and you’ll find yourself looking for potential mates that share your primary passion, interest, or leaning.

If you’re a devout Christian and want to maximize the chances that your future mate is also, then Christian Mingle would be a natural fit.

On the other hand, maybe you’re just looking to see who and what is out there, and you want the site with the most members.  There are sites that are not suited for a particular niche market, which will give you the most visibility and maximize your choice.

If you’re serious about finding a life partner, who is willing to date outside their race, then you’ll probably want to gravitate to, which offers the most comprehensive profile and partner matching system available anywhere in the online world. And the beauty is that these singles have one agenda. and its finding love despite race.

Then there are those sites that cater to specific races. For instance if you want to find a large number of African men and women in one dating site, then is the site for you. There is also if you are looking to date Asians and if Hispanic is what attracts you.

But what if you’re just looking for a casual hookup or a playful no-strings romp?  Well, there are apps and websites for that too.  Tinder is one of the most popular app-driven free services, and it’s often used for casual encounters.

Interestingly though, an increasing number of people are relying on hook-up apps to find serious, long-term relationships.  In fact, in a recent survey of female profiles on such apps, fully sixty percent of them mentioned specifically that the user was not interested in a hookup.  All that to say, it’s a mobile app you can use both for casual encounters and to help you find a more meaningful relationship.

In terms of web-based casual relationship facilitators, the undisputed King is Adult Friend Finder.

You can use it to search for people with the same interests and kinks as you, filter for only profiles with photos, upload your own photos (or videos) and even maintain a blog inside the AFF network.

Then, of course, there is a multitude of free dating sites.  These tend to have less traffic, and as such, present fewer options, but even a small amount of Google searching will reveal dozens of them, and don’t forget to look for niche dating sites!

Are you a writer?  A musician?  An Emo?  Goth?  You’ll find dating websites that cater to all of these, and much, much more!  Most are free to sign up and create a profile, and many offer advanced features you can activate for a small fee.  What are you waiting for?  Dive in and have fun!
