My Exploration Of The On-Line Dating World

With the prevalence of social networking and online dating sites, online dating has fast become the next best avenue for people to meet. It is convenient, and it eliminates various barriers typically associated with the conventional way of dating. With online dating you’re not bound by geographical limitations. You can meet someone halfway around the world and still develop a relationship with them.

Describe yourself in a unique fashion — do not take the same route every other user takes when they talk about themselves. Pick some things that will set you apart from other users on the site. Almost all dating site users say they’re funny and smart – even if you truly are, avoid putting things like that in your Internet dating profile. Make your profile unique so it’s a reflection of you that will attract people you’re searching for. When searching, see what they have put in their profiles, this will give you a way to size up what has been placed in their profile.

As I was browsing some profiles online I really wanted to be able to pin all the major errors on men. Call it a woman thing if you will. I sadly discovered however that women are just as guilty of the rushed, non-proof read profiles than men are. A rushed profile will turn away many people because it causes others to assume you are the type of person who just doesn’t care. If you can’t take ten minutes to be sure that they’re, there and there are used correctly; will you take the time needed to make a relationship work?

How many times have you walked into a bar, sat down, and just had a flood of women come up to you? Unless you are some well known celebrity, it probably hasn’t ever happened to you like that. Well, it is not going to happen like that online, either.

You create a profile. You try to make yourself sound as interesting as possible – but while staying true to who you really are. Scenario: a date with a total sports nut who hates sci-fi. You hate football and have seen Star Wars 1700 times. Nightmare! But then again, do you really want to admit you’ve seen Star Wars 1700 times in your profile? (Better keep that for an e-mail…) Yourself, in a few paragraphs. Your most flattering picture. And with a shaky finger…create.

Like every other, you have to get to know the person before you agree to meet each other. Ask them what church they attend, or if they go to bible studies, or belong to a Christian youth group. Because you are a Christian you need to know the answers to these and other questions before you proceed any further.

Avoid adding pictures of animals and other unnecessary people into it. If you do put some animal to show you’re a pet lover, please do so but be part of that picture. People are looking for your appearance not how beautiful your dog is. Remember you are in an adult dating site not an animal pet site. One thing also is to put pictures that are too dark. Make a very good impression of what you really look like; which a beautiful picture says it all.

What if you were able to learn an effective way to go from getting a woman’s number to graduating to an intimate relationship — without guesswork, without wasting time or money, and without the fear of rejection?

Overall Impressions: Overall, both sites are good ones. I have no problems recommending either. And neither are that expensive. Both do allow for you to narrow down potential matches based on your chosen criteria, but eharmony takes that a step further with it’s very comprehensive personality test that takes around 45 minutes. Deciding which one to go with really just depends on what you want from this process.
