Your Must Have Checklist For Online Dating Success


Getting to know your way around online dating sites can be frustrating and overwhelming, at first. There is so much to learn and what you do will have an impact on how well you will be received. In order to be successful there are 10 important steps with online dating that must be followed.

Do a simple internet search and see how many dating sites there are to choose from. Take a look at a few different ones. Think about what your needs are. Are you someone over forty? Are you very religious? There is going to be a site that can help you find exactly what you are looking for.

After you pick your dating site you must join. This is the fun part. You will need to choose a user name. This is going to be your hello. Your user name is the first thing people will see, after your picture. You will be judged by your user name. So, do not just put the first thing that comes to your mind. Imagine you are going to an interview. You would not just wake up and throw on jeans and a shirt would you? The same attitude applies here.

Once you have your user name there is the matter of filling out your profile. There will be a lot of questions. Some of them are just checking a box, but there are others that give you an opportunity to talk about yourself. You need to fill out everything completely.

Be honest. If you were previously married let it be known. Do not mislead a person into thinking you have never been married because then when they find out you have they will lose interest. If a person is not interested in dating someone who has been married before then they will not choose you, but that is a person that you would not want to date anyway.

At some point during this process you will have to choose a headline for your profile. Make sure that it is an attention grabber. Choose a few words to say something good about yourself and what you seek. Try to be unique.

Upload a photograph of yourself. Not just one. Put as many pictures as you can. All of your pictures should be less than a year old. Do not post professional pictures. If you are a woman looking for a man, do not pick pictures that show you with men. Same applies for men. That is tacky.

Do not forget to spell check everything you write. For some people that is a deal breaker. If possible, ask a close friend to review it. Then hit submit and you are ready to browse.

Browse by your interests. All dating websites have many options to help narrow down the list of potential dates. So, if you are not willing to drive an hour to meet someone make sure you choose what distance is comfortable for you. Then start looking through the list of people. If someone sparks your interest, read their profile.

A lot of sites will let a person know who has viewed their profile. So, if you read a profile and are interested, make contact. Many sites let you make some form of contact without writing an e-mail. It is referred to as flirting. This will let a person know you are interested. If they flirt back you have the green light to move on to the next step.

You should send a message to anyone that you are interested in. Make sure you read their profile first. When you write your message make a point or two about things you liked in their profile. Then you want to write something of interest about yourself. Keep it simple the first time. Make each message you write cater to that person. Be genuine.

When you have a good vibe from someone that you have shared a few messages with do not hesitate. Ask for their phone number. You have to strike while the iron is hot. Remember you are not the only person contacting him or her. If you wait you might lose them to someone else who did not wait.

Be active every day. If a person does not reply that you are really interested in do not get deflated. You must move on. This is online dating. You have hundreds of other people to contact. So, delete them from your profile and check out someone else. The more active you are the more your profile will be seen by others.

Online dating is becoming a popular way to meet people. The key is having a great profile that stands out. Remember, what you write will say a lot about who you are. Make sure to follow the above steps and you will be successful.
