Tips For Online Dating Success

Aug 31, 2007
While online dating may seem like a new concept to some, there are currently thousands of singles who log on to online dating sites everyday in the hope of finding the one person out there who is truly meant for them.

Why online dating?

The increasingly faster pace of life has left most people with little or no time to go out to singles pubs or other haunts where they are likely to meet other single people looking for a date. Online dating offers busy singles a chance to join online dating sites and browse through profiles of singles from the opposite sex till they find what they are looking for.

Here are a few tips that will guarantee you success in your online dating endeavor-

Join a paid online dating service

Any one who has paid to register at an online dating service is serious about finding a life-partner and is not looking to just pass their time.

Honesty is the best policy

When filling in the membership profile, be sure to answer all questions as honestly as possible. Don't lie and don't project a false image about yourself, when you ultimately meet up and spend time more time together you will find it difficult to be somebody you are not.

Put your best face forward

Include a recent photograph of yourself. Make sure you pick one that is most flattering. A picture speaks a thousand words, so make sure you look friendly and have a smile on our face. Do not post a full-figure photograph as it is very difficult to tell what you really look it.

Use video messaging to your advantage

If you are a member of an online dating service that allows you to upload short video messages about yourself, do grab this opportunity to tell everybody what you are all about. Keep the message short and include relevant information about yourself such as what you do for a living, where you live, what is your favorite pastime and what kind of person you are looking for. Of course you would have filled out all this information in the membership profile, but hearing you say it out loud can have a huge impact, especially if delivered in a voice that is steady and friendly.

Make the first move

Don't hesitate to contact another member of the site whose profile matches what you are looking for. After all that's what the profile is there for!

Better safe than sorry

When agreeing to meet up on a real date, remember that this person is for all practical purposes still a stranger to you. You may have been honest in your membership but that's not to say that everybody else has the same ideals. So pick a place and time that's safe, and make sure somebody knows where you are. No matter how romantic it may sound, do not agree to drive off into the sunset in this stranger's car on your very first date. Get to know your date better before you let the relationship progress.
