The Truth About Dating Site

Dec 27, 2007
You might be one of the many people joining an online dating site in the hope to meet your Mr. or Ms. Right. However, what works and what does not is still a mystery!

What is the mantra for success?

Today, a computer screen has made it possible for every other person to get into the dating game. However, while we see many businesses spring up in the name of love, dating site cannot boast of a success mantra. What works for one, might not work for the other. However, there are some truths one would do good to know. A few basics make you touch base with the real reason some dating sites are more popular.

Firstly, it is the mere statistics of the population. It is said that three of every five single people between the age group of 25 to 55, have tried their hand at online dating sites, looking for love, marriage or plain friendship. Yes, the numbers are astounding. This accounts for 60% of every young to mid-age single person on the planet! This is why the online dating sites are blooming and the business of love is making money. This is good news for most singles and the dating business. But while the sites are increasingly popular, most people do not own up to the fact that they use online dating because of the fear of being labeled as desperate or a social failure. They prefer to have their friends know they are not that desperate yet! There is nothing wrong with online dating. Just like a bar or a club, it is just a different venue to meet different people. The sooner you admit that, the more your chances of online dating success.

What comes as a surprise to most is also the fact that only 5 to 10% of the people who are looking for love on a dating site, manage to actually find it there. This is shocking for most. However, if you compare this situation to the real world social situation, you will see it as completely normal. How many people would you be attracted to if you walked into a movie hall? It would have to be just a handful. Not everyone meets your expectations. So it is advised that you be realistic and set your goals accordingly. An online dating site is not your only ticket to love. Do not get disheartened if you do not meet with success immediately! Keep trying!

It is quite true that if you do not have an interesting profile, an engaging introduction and do not have a photo uploaded alongside it, chances of your getting a response from prospects on a dating site, is next to nil! If you are not going to invest time on yourself to make an interesting profile or upload your latest picture, people are not going to invest time in you! When you go out to meet people in a club, don't you dress up and look your best? The same logic works here. People need to be attracted to you to communicate with you on online dating sites. If you give them no reason to be attracted to you, chances are they will pass you over.
