Online Dating Tips
Stick to your word- If you say that you are going to contact a potential partner on a specific day- then try to keep this appointment, the other person may have put other appointment off to wait for you e-mail, and if it doesn’t come they may well lose interest.
Happy? – If you feel at all uncomfortable whilst chatting or communication, explain this to the person you are chatting with and explain why. If they carry on terminate the communication and move on.
Be patient- Most dating sites will feature you along with all of the other new members for a short while when you join, but it may still take a few days for someone to see you profile and have the courage to contact you
Dedicate some time- Although there are thousands if not millions of singles sat at their computers at the same time you are, remember that you are looking for that one in a million, and the more time you spend online the better chances you have of connecting with him/her.
Not all the same- not all online dating sites are the same, they fall into 3 main groups 1) the adult site 2) the fun site 3) the relationship site- choose which one will be best for what your looking for and go with that – you can find descriptions of each type with examples of the best on or dating blog .
Don’t isolate yourself- If you met someone out and about you would ask for a second opinion from friends or family- doesn’t think just because the relationship is online that you can’t share images of messages with friends- they may see something that you don’t.
Get comfy-when your sitting down to search for that special someone, make sure your comfortable as it may take some time, and if you are being irritated by those awkward trousers or bursting for the loo you wont be able to give the task at hand a good shot.
Grab a bargain- Shop around the online dating sites near holidays like Easter or Christmas as most of the larger ones slash their costs at this time
Use the tools at you disposal- If a dating site offers winks or icebreakers to contact new people use them- many people are put of initial contact as they cant spend the time to write an e-mail that does them justice- send a wink and let the other person initiate conversation and see where it leads.
Irons in the fire- Don’t limit yourself to one conversation at a time, online dating is about networking, if more than one person shows an interest try to communicate with them all( but remember to use the right names!!)
