Online Dating Tip: Let’s Start With Your Online Profile

You want your online profile to be a great as possible so that your online dating experience is as positive and successful as it can be. One way that you can improve the communication that you get from potential dates is by stating clearly and precisely what it is that you’re looking for. If you’ll only date people who are three years older or younger than you, you need to be clear about this condition in your profile. If you say that you “want to meet new people” you’ll most likely be flooded with interested people from all around the world. You need to be clear about what it is that you want from a date.

Your subject line should be used as a filter. When you put certain specifics into your subject line you narrow down the type of people who want to respond to your online ad. Be exact about only dating men who have no facial hair if this is important to you. And if you’re a man who will only date slim women you should try to include something about this condition in your subject line whether or not it seems shallow or not. Why leave yourself open to dating all types of people if there are some who you’re just not interested in?

Let people know what actions you’ll take if they are interested in you. For instance, if you want people to email you for further communication make this clear to them when you respond to their introductory email to you. Most online dating sites will have a chat room so that you can “chat” with people who are interested in you before you agree to a real date. When you’re communicating with people try to use grammar that is correct and not offensive. Don’t start calling someone “sexy” or “baby” since this can leave a bad first impression and never get you that first date. Use their real name that they give you or the name that they use in their profile.

Always be respectful of anyone you meet online whether you’re meeting in real life or communicating with them online. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that since this is an online thing that you can lose this respect through anonymity. Remember that anyone who shows an interest in you is a potential date that could lead to a long term relationship.
