Why Not Online Dating? Read Before You Try…

I think it’s ridiculous: I have friends who are successful in every manner in their lives. Their professional careers have taken off, these people are loved by their families, but sadly, the more successful they are, it seems like they are lacking someone in their personal lives… a partner to share their lives with!

So many people are afraid of labels but there are sites that work for so many people. My best friend met her husband on an online dating site. A really good one I came across and suggested to another friend is this BBW dating site. As long as your mind is open, the options are limitless.

However, just like anything in life, it can take a little while to get into the groove of things. A gay friend who has tried another online dating site seemed discouraged that out of three men he emailed, no one has responded. I asked to look at this profile and noticed what was lacking right away….

Put Effort Into Your Online Profile

Whether you are a male or a female, and this hold true in the online dating world for straight people as well 😉 , make sure to completely fill out your profile. Start with a nice, friendly picture. I’ve seen some crazy profile pictures which doesn’t serve the featured person very well.

A normal picture of you having fun and smiling will do the job well!

Next up? Don’t be lazy! Please make sure to take time with your profile. Present yourself well. Don’t lie, of course, as that will never work out for the long term.

For instance, if you are work driven, make sure to mention that. Some people only want to date people who can turn that switch off while others find such work related passion to be a relief and as an attractive trait.

List all the things you enjoy! Are you a pet person? Are you specifically a cat person and dislike dogs? (I am not sure how that can be possible!) While you want to give a clear indication of who you are and what you are seeking, you don’t want to come off as a picky jerk who is robotic-ally putting together another mate. Remember: we are all humans with unique personalities and no one comes “perfect”.

Which brings me to another point: while I understand that there are compromises that can not be made, by all means choose someone who is compatible. However, do not break up with people just because it’s easy to not compromise (hey, relationships are all about compromises!)

Anyways, realize that you are worth the love you want to give other people. Be confident in who you are and you will attract not only the right type of friends, but also the right partner. Because life just works that way if you give yourself an honest chance!
