Online dating – Hi Everyone and welcome to Online Dating!
We hope you’re having a great Holiday Season! Our staff receives a lot of mail from both men AND women asking us to help them find the “Right One”. Online dating is all about finding the “Right One”.
We can’t just say, “This person is the right one for you, here you go!” Only YOU know who will be the Right One for you. You know things that we don’t, like:
What kind of person you’d like to meet (older, younger, traditional, religious)
What you’d really like to see in other people (personality, hobbies)
What can YOU do with online dating?
1)Write a great personal ad. Tell your future partner about yourself, and the kind of person you’re searching for. It doesn’t need to be long, but it should be more than just a few words.
Example: “I’m a happy, healthy person. I’ve never been married and do not have children. I enjoy scary movies, romantic outings, and dancing. Some of my hobbies include: hiking, cooking, and spending time with my family.
“I want to meet someone who is happy and healthy, too! I don’t smoke, and would like it if you didn’t either. I’d love it if we shared some hobbies. What’s your favorite movie?”
2)Upload a great photo. Smile at the camera! Have at least ONE good quality photo.
Here are some good examples:
Keep photos clean! Remember, your photo is how you make a first impression online, so no nudity, no rude gestures, nothing too provocative.
3)Be active on ! It’s best if you can log in daily, but logging in is not enough. Engage other members! Send emails and smiles and invite people to chat. Respond to every email, even if it’s just to say, “Thanks for writing to me!”
4)Be willing to move on. Let’s face it, not everyone is going to be a perfect fit for you. If there’s no match, or if they don’t reply to your messages, it’s OK to keep searching. The important thing is to keep your end goal in mind- Don’t give up!
There is no such thing as mail order brides online! I hope these tips will help you find your love online. It may take time to find someone you love, but it will be worth the wait when you DO find the Love of a Lifetime.
