The trick is in sifting out the diamonds from the ruffians! Here’s something you should also know when reading this piece. Though these tips are written specifically with the ladies in mind, they can easily apply to the menfolk as well. So guys, do read on!
Now, without further adieu, here’s a list of what you’ll need to discover quickly if he or she is an online loon or someone who’ll make you swoon. Just add a dash of common sense with a pinch of your own instinct, and you’ll be well on your way to finding that special someone who may just make you say, “I do. Create a great online dating profile that showcases you. They say that “like attracts like,” so if you want to meet someone who is well-groomed, articulate, and interesting you first need to make sure your profile is of the same caliber. Post realistic but flattering photos, and write something about yourself that is intriguing and tells your suitors what you are passionate about and what makes you tick. Then watch how quickly other quality people who also put in the same type of effort are drawn to you!
I hear complaints from people all the time regarding the quality of users they’re hearing from, or the fact that they’re rarely hearing from anyone at all, and without fail, each time I have checked out that person’s profile, it’s a train wreck! Even for those who do experience some success online, their profiles often could use a lot of improvement. Self-taken photos reflected off the bathroom mirror with poor lighting and dirty towels in the background rarely make a good first impression. A frightening number of profile photos can be found that are taken from bad angles, have frowns on faces, or are primarily of the user’s pet dog, frog, or a pogo stick. NOT going to cut it!
Putting your best foot forward can and will yield positive results when consistently applied. So get off to a fresh start by revamping your existing profile or by signing up for the first time with a great new profile. Don’t share any personal information until you’ve exchanged at least four to five meaningful emails within the original site. I’m talking about your cell phone number, your personal email address, your LIVING ADDRESS etc.
