Online Dating Tips
By:Jeffrey Meier

Thanks to internet, online dating has become so popular all over the world. There are so many sites dedicated solely for this. Gone are the days when it used to be difficult finding your perfect date or meeting new people. Online dating is interesting as you get to meet a lot of new people; you exchange your views and talk about each other and who knows you may even find your soul mate if you are lucky.

Here are some tips that you should keep in mind:

• When you write your personal it is important to choose the right words. Always try to write catchy and innovative stuff. Avoid the obvious, which is boring. Be original. Write about your likes and the traits you are good at. You need not have to be drop dead romantic and if you are then you will probably get someone who would be too but incase you are the adventurous kinds then do not be afraid to say so.

• Honesty is the best policy here. Do not try to bluff anybody as it does not help.

• Truth involves less disappointment and more chances of finding your mate. While adopting a straightforward approach, fight the temptation to mention your house and luxury cars. Showoffs are never appealing and very likely to be snubbed. Never lie about your age. Be specific about what age group you are looking for. If you want to meet women less than 30 years old, say so as it would be pointless to meet a 40 plus woman. You must also mention if you’re single, divorcee, widower or if even you’re in the middle of a divorce or break up write that. Keep your facts upfront especially concerning your love life. If a persons past does not matter to you mention that as well because many people do not respond worrying that their past may be an issue.

• Keep a proactive approach with online dating. Instead of focusing in on one woman, send messages to several women to help increase your chances of getting a response.

• If you are a man do not allow yourself to become discouraged. Know that women tend to receive more messages about 50 to 200 responses on average so she simply may not have the time to respond to all and if she does, it will take time for you to hear back to your inquiry. Therefore, be patient with the process.

• Be frank but also maintain your distance where you have to. Do not give the impression of being too loud and don’t get too personal like asking about sex, until you get to know the person better. Sex should never be a part of casual conversation, especially when you first meet.
