Are you seeking friends or romance through online dating? Are you facing problem in turning your dates into actual friends or partners? Or are you frustrated over the initial failure? Here s a brief but informative treatise on online dating which will educate you regarding matchmaking sites and why some people do not get any success through these sites.
First of all you should know that there are many totally free online dating services. There is no necessity to turn to those websites which charge you regularly. It is totally unnecessary. Just do not get the impression that those sites which are charging you will get you good friends for sure. Almost everyone uses free sites, not those bullshit sites that will cut a hole in your pocket.
First step is to create an outstanding profile. Your profile is the best weapon to get someone interested in you. Gone are those days when one had to always maintain word limit while writing personal ads. It was very difficult to give a clear picture regarding yourself using a few dozens of words. But in these days of free dating sites you do not need to scratch your head in keeping word limit. You can describe yourself to your heart’s content.
While creating a profile on a dating site you would do fine if you keep some important matters in your head. First do not use sarcastic or offensive words. Avoid those words which may sound offensive to some people. Even if you do not have any intention in doing so, others may think negatively regarding you. Do not try to be a funny guy. Save your humor for the time being.
Always paste a number of photographs in your profile. It has been seen that profiles with pictures attract much higher response. Paste at least three pictures in different mood.
Always state your special interests. Do not hesitate to share your passion. Say you are very much interested in religion or you are associated with some special organization like PETA or something like that, make sure you mention that. Be informative. Give accurate description of yourself. Do not try to be vague in description.
You should clearly describe what kind of persons you would like to meet through singles dating sites. Mention the age group, background, religion, ethnicity etc. if you do not accurately describe your needs, you will continue to bump on wrong kind of persons.
Do not gibe false description in order to attract admiration. These lies will only bring frustration to you. Be what you are. Do not try to appear Mr. All Right.
Now when you are about to meet someone or the first time do not wear formal dress. Wear casual dress. Do not take it like an interview. Do not expect much from your first meeting. Too much expectation will make the process heavy. Be polite and try to get him or her as a friend first. Romance may bloom later. Do not try to make it out as ‘Love at first site’. Always discuss which eating place to visit in advance. If you are seeking a girlfriend, try making her feel that she is in commanding position.
