10 Steps to Successful Online Dating

Finding the right person online is not an easy task but if you follow these ten steps the process will be a lot easier:

10.Choose the right website. Many websites have popped up on the internet offering online dating services but because there are so many of them it can become quite confusing when you try to decide which one is suitable for you. Review each site carefully before you become a member. You don’t want to end up on a site for heterosexuals if you are gay.

9.Write truthful information about yourself when establishing a profile. Many people are overly concerned with other peoples opinions so they hide factual information about themselves. Remember you are not entering a popularity contest. You are online to find someone who you are compatible with and its their opinion that really matter, not everyone else’s.

8.State clearly in your profile who you are looking for and the qualities that they should possess. If you are looking for a single 22-28 yr old college educated female with no kids and good christian values, then say so. Otherwise you may be contacted by older, party-goer women with kids who don’t share you religious beliefs; a waste of both your time.

7.Upload a picture of yourself. As the old saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words.” A profile with a picture is likely to get a lot more hits than a similar profile with no pictures. The picture should be clear and professional.

6.Search for matches in your area and send emails. You would be surprised to know how many online daters check their inbox regularly for emails but they never send any. If you perform a search and you find someone you like then send them an email. You’ve got nothing to lose.

5.Check your email at least once per week and reply right away. When people send you an email its because something in your profile excited them so much that they want to learn more about you. Don’t let them wait forever they may lose interest or meet someone else who is equally captivating.

4.Set up an online real time date with instant chat. After you have shortlisted a few persons who you probably would like to meet in person, set up an online chat with them. Set a date and time and engage them in a live conversation where you can learn more about them.

3.Talk to your online friend over the phone. You don’t have to give them your number if you don’t feel comfortable. Many dating sites have an anonymous call feature that allows both parties to connect to each other without exchanging phones numbers. Call the phone number that pops up on your browser when you activate the anonymous feature and chat, chat, chat away.

2.Give your profile a facelift. If the dating game is not going too well for you tweak your profile. Change your display picture or add more pictures. Say things about yourself in different ways. Highlight attractive features you may have previously left out.
