One huge advantage of online dating is the opportunity to skim many profiles, picking and choosing. This is a type of control that doesn’t exist in real life. You also have the power to attract the type of man you want, by creating a profile geared to attract him.
When you set up your online profile, you need to make sure that it is going to get noticed. Skimming through other womens profiles will quickly reveal to you how boring and predictable most profiles are. Be different! Tell him what you are like by telling a story about yourself, or describe a recent experience that was funny or noteworthy in some way. This is one way to really stand out from the crowd.
One of the first things you will want to do when you set up your profile is to set up an email account that is not in any way linked to your personal email account. This will help you to keep track of your responses, as well as keeping respondents an arm’s length away from your personal account. This will also make it easy for you to delete your account, need be.
Your picture is worth a thousand words, so make it count. Don’t be trashy; avoid showing too much skin or being too provocative. I think we both know exactly what sort of attention that will attract, and it is definitely not the way to meet a guy with long-term potential. Make good eye contact in your picture, and sport your most winning smile. Glamour shots are never a good idea, unless you really do wear that much makeup and hairspray in real life!
What you write in your profile is going to tell a man what you are like in real life, so take care to avoid negativity. Be positive, and keep it fresh and light. Write about things you find funny, places you love, and what you do for a good time. These things will excite a guy by showing him your fun side, and the things you could enjoy together.
Be sure to avoid any sort of negative talk about your exes or about other women. This will send the wrong message, and may turn away the man you are actually looking for.
These simple tips are sure to get you more responses than you know what to do with. Just be patient, and have fun as you make your way towards finding love online.
