Online Dating Success Tips

You may be hesitant about online dating at first because you think that finding love through online dating websites may not be your cup of tea. However, career and the lack of opportunities to find dates offline is a problem for many people. That is why they have turned to online dating.

After all, your chances of finding a good match at a bar is not higher than at a website with millions of users all looking for dates. There are many online dating success stories at any website that you visit and the statistics of such websites show that there are many, many people using online dating sites.

Online Dating Websites

The first thing you need to do, of course, is to post your personal ad in any dating website. Choose a site that is free when you start looking for a match. Craigslist is very popular.

Sometimes a niche website may be best for you, especially if you have specific needs. For example, there are online dating sites that cater to Christians of various denominations if faith is important to you.

Online Dating Safety Tips

Online dating safety should be a priority for you. Never post important information like your work email, cell phone number, address, etc. Get a new email that you will use for online dating contacts.

When going on a date take following precautions for your safety:

· Use a public phone.
· Meet at a public place during daytime.
· A quick, informal date is best such as going for coffee or lunch.
· Have your own transportation.
· Do not go into a car with a person you don’t now yet.
· Tell a friend or family member the details of your date before you go.
· Bring pepper spray with you.
· Do not drink anything that was out of your sight and that your date has access to.
· Don’t get drunk.
· You might want to consider double dating with a friend if you can.

Online Dating Success

Successful online dating requires that you make an honest personal profile. You may want to consider posting your photo because more people will add you as a contact if you do. For women, pictures where you are smiling or flirting directly at the camera are good. Myspace-style shots where the camera is above the head and at an angle to show your face and upper body are also good. Shots that show interesting activities like playing a musical instrument or bungee jumping will also attract more contacts and messages from other dating website users.

For men, a picture showing them with an animal or showing off their body are both excellent choices. Smiling is actually optional as dating website statistics show that pictures of men who are looking slightly away from the camera and not smiling attract more attention.

Your profile text should be honest and reflect your hobbies and interests, no matter how mundane or uninteresting they seem to you. People aren’t always looking for someone very unusual.

In the end, online dating is not really that different from traditional dating except that you have a lot more choices. It can open up a world of possibilities for you and many people have met their life partner through online dating when previously they would not have had much chance of meeting that person offline.
