Reasons Why People Are Unsuccessful At Online Dating

Feb 10, 2008
If you have ever tried online dating before you know how difficult it can be to find a dating partner. For the people who have been unsuccessful at it, generally there are a few major reasons why. I will tell you what those reasons are and what you can do to get better results.

1. You do not have a picture in your profile, or the picture you have is not a very good picture of you.
All too often there are people who do not realize the importance of having a good picture in their profile. There are many people who will create a decent profile without adding a picture to it, this is a big mistake.

There are also people who will create a profile and add a picture to their profile. However, the picture in their profile is not a very good one, this is also a mistake. Making these mistakes will hinder the amount of responses you get to your profile. It is important that you have a good picture in your profile, because most members would like to know what you look like before they contact you.

Or if you initiate contact with other members they would like to know what you look like before they respond to you.

2. Your user name has a negative reflection on you.

Having a good user name plays a big part in the your success or failure of online dating. Having a user name that relates to hate or violence can drastically affect the results you get. Sometimes people do not give enough thought into creating a user name and they will put anything, this is a big mistake.

Your user name should be somewhat unique and it should say something about who you are or what you do.

3. The headline in your profile is generic.

Your profile headline should be unique and it should say something about who you are or more importantly what type of person you are looking for. The headline is usually short, but it should be able to capture the attention of other members on the site.

4. You have typos and grammatical errors in the describe yourself field in your profile.

This field is equally as important as the other elements mentioned earlier. In this field you must give a detailed description of who you are, and what type of person you are looking for. It should be concise and well written, having typos or grammatical errors will discourage other members from contacting you.

These are some tips that will help you to improve the results you get with online dating.
