Internet Dating - How Do I Find the Right One?

Aug 11, 2008
Sometimes making your way through all of the dating websites and singles ads can be confusing at best. In order to make this work for you, you may want to establish some key parameters to narrow your search and help you achieve better results.

There are multiple dating websites to choose from and literally millions of ads placed by people just like you. You may want to start by choosing a small number of dating websites to place your ad on, maybe one of the most popular sites, maybe one that appeals to an area of your interests or beliefs, and maybe a third one just for good measure.

When you place your ad you will have to make various choices about the person you are interested in meeting. We recommend that you be as liberal as possible in order to increase the number of potential partners. For example, if you want to meet someone who is 30 years old you may consider saying you are interested in seeing ads from people that range in age from 28 to 35 years old.

On most dating websites when you place your ad you will have the opportunity to submit some written text, a summary of you, who you are and who you would like to meet. We recommend you write a summary that is positive and upbeat, providing some information about your hobbies and interests and the person you are interested in meeting.

Enthusiasm and a positive outlook are definitely contagious so a positive, upbeat tone to your summary profile is recommended. Be honest and straightforward, but try to keep the summary light with a sense of adventure. Sometimes it is difficult to tell from an online ad and a few emails what the person is actually like. By meeting on line you don't have the body language and mannerisms to be able to determine more about the individual.

If everything checks out with the persons communication and you believe there may be some interest, by all means set a time to meet. Sometimes you will be amazed at how well (or not) you will get along once you meet in person. Also, you may want to set a goal of meeting a few new people each week via your online efforts.

When you increase your efforts, you also increase your chances of connecting with the person that has the potential to provide what you are seeking. Whether it be a good friend, a biking partner, a long term relationship or marriage, online dating provides a vast amount of resources that are waiting for you.
