and Tips for Success

  1. Be detailed when creating your dating profile

    A lot of people make the mistake of creating dating profiles with very little detail other than the required fields. Obviously, there is still a chance that communication can still happen by having an active profile. However, competition is fierce on dating sites, and your best chance of finding the best match is to provide plenty of information about yourself and the sort of person you are looking for.

    There is also more chance that any communication that you receive from other members will be based on the detail of your profile rather than your pictures. It also helps to provide common ground between people such as a shared interest among members. For example, if you write that you like a particular musical artist on your profile, then maybe you get a message from another member that also likes that artist. This can act as a friendly conversation starter. 

  2. Be active on the platform in any way you feel comfortable 

    New members will often complete a profile on a dating site and instantly expect attention without doing anything more. Of course, it's lovely when that happens but getting noticed often takes a bit more work. Being active on the site certainly helps to start to form online connections, and this can be achieved in several diverse ways.

    The most direct of these is to start sending messages or winks to other members directly. Be aware though that a lot of paid dating sites only allow subscribers to respond. If you aren't comfortable with this direct approach, then you also have the possibility of communicating with the community via message boards or forums. If you prefer to take things offline, then many of the better dating community sites arrange meet-ups at various times and locations.

  3. Develop online/phone communication before dates 

    Some people feel that it's best to jump to dates after reviewing each other profile and only brief communication. However, this approach can lead to a lot of frustration if members find that they have less in interest than they hoped for. Unsatisfactory dates leads to anxiety, doubt and a feeling of low self esteem.

    Therefore, your experiences may be more fulfilling if you first spend some time to get to know members via online/email communication. Modern technology such as Skype allows you to get quite close to someone before meeting them. If things go well, you can progress to the next stage but if they don't then it may be easier to break off that communication than had you already met.
