Getting More Responses On A Dating Site

Mar 4, 2008
After you have successfully created a profile on a dating site, you hope that other members on the site would be interested in you. You hope that other members would initiate contact with you. There are members who do not like to initiate contact with other members because they believe this will make them appear to be desperate.

If you are not getting flooded with emails from other members on a daily basis. You should think about initiating contact with other members who are compatible with you. Initiating contact with other members will not make you appear to be desperate.

There are many people who are paranoid about appearing desperate on a dating site, they will often spend less time and effort into creating their profile. In many cases they will list very little information about themselves or what type of person they are looking for.

This can have a negative effect on the responses they get or the lack of responses because other members do not know enough about them. Think about it rationally, how will other members know specifically what you want if you do not ask for it?

Your profile is important because recent studies have shown that many of the people who have been successful at finding partners on a dating site had created great profiles to sell themselves. Being successful on a dating site is all about selling yourself.

Selling yourself entails: creating a great profile, adding a nice picture to your profile. Sending emails to other members, every email should be unique and should be directly related to the person you are emailing. When you have received emails from other members your response should be a well thought out response.

Lets focus on what initially attracts people to your profile. Your picture, your picture plays a big role in attracting people to your profile, because physical attraction is very important to most people. Too many people overlook the importance of having a picture in their profile.

There are many people who believe that personality is much more important than looks. They will spend quite a bit of time and effort into creating an excellent profile. The will explain in detail who they are and what type of person they are looking for. However, they will not add their picture to their profile. This is a huge mistake because no profile is complete without a great picture.

Getting many responses to your profile on a dating site is determined by the way you present yourself. You must remember that personality and looks go hand in hand, and one cannot compensate for the other. You probably will not get your desired results by creating an incomplete profile.

You must be direct when describing who you are and what you are looking for and you must add a good picture to your profile. Follow these steps and you will be on your way to finding your ideal match.
