The Advantages of Online Dating for Women
Its no secret. Online dating can be daunting so daunting that many women find excuses not to join. If youre one of those excuse-makers, take note. Follow these five tips, and youll be mastering the art of online dating.
Tip Number 1: Be realistic. Its not going to happen overnight. You have to kiss a lot of amphibians before you meet your prince. Youre going meet more people you dont like than people you do like. Youre going to be rejected. There will be times that you want to give up. But if youre realistic, you wont be disappointed, and youll keep going until you meet your Mr. Right.
Tip Number 2: Be positive. You dont have to try to convince yourself that every person you meet will be someone you want to see a second time, but you can still make sure that you come away from a first date with at least one positive thing to say about it, even if its that the coffee was good.
Tip Number 3: Treat online dating like a second job. If you go about it half-heartedly, it wont work. You have to give it your all. If you go about it passively, it wont work. You cannot wait for others to contact you. You have to make the initial move. Now, I know this is often hard for women, especially older women, who think that men are supposed to make the first move. Wrong! If you dont take it seriously, it wont work. You cant say, Well, these arent great photos of me, but who cares? The photos have to be the best photos you can possibly take. And notice, I said, Photos. Not Photo. You have to post more than one photo (three is a perfect number) AND they have to be recent AND at least one of them has to be a full-body photo. No matter what your body type. And you have to write a dynamite profile, which takes time.
