Organizing Yourself for the Online Date

Jun 26, 2008
Online dating can be fun and exciting. It applies to all ages. A successful click can bloom into romance. The amazing partner or the perfect paramour you are looking for is just waiting in one of those chatrooms.

For a hexagenarian who considers trying an online date, the following factors will make the objectives you have set up worthwhile if you are trying to hook up with someone you become fond of, and end up successful in the process and be happy.

Username: The first thing that online date members see about you is the username or screen name. So think of something that is cool and attention getting or something that reflects your interests, the place you live and who you are.

Profile: Take your time writing your profile, noting something about the type of personality you have, especially your positive attributes, interests, and prejudices. Be very attentive with the smallest details because this is your profile that you are posting on the online dating site.

Updates: Once you have your profile posted, make sure to make updates. It does not matter if you are happy with it; you keep in mind that it is the members who read and view it. Oftentimes, they search those most recently changed.

Photo: If you are expecting more responses from members of the opposite sex, adding your most recent photo in your personal ads attracts more than those who do not have photo at all posted in their profile.

Honesty: One thing to note is being honest, especially when it comes to your personality, looks or status. Some potential seekers are very good in figuring out that theres something wrong. If this happens, you might not be in a good spot.

Anonymity: As you are building the trust, stay quite anonymous during the early stages, then reveal more information about yourself later on in the process. Not exposing your name or any contact information at the beginning is just trying to safeguard yourself from other people who are there just to make fun and were never serious.

Positivism: Avoid being negative that will make you appear like a victim of frustrations and disappointments. Your personal strengths, eagerness and a little personal about yourself are enough to give out your strong points.

Restrictions: It is best to describe the type of person you are and leave it to women members to decide. This increases the chances of meeting somebody if you are not too conservative.

One thing leads to another: For potential partners that you feel matches you, go ahead make your move. If it comes to a point you both have the idea of who you are chatting with, then exchange emails or IM outside of the dating site. If you established the rapport, then time to hear each others voice. Exchange telephone numbers. It may be nervous sometimes, but just be you.

Get the show on the road: Everything goes well and you feel good about it, arrange the meeting. Let this be the game you are going to win.
