Make an effort Instead of complaining about the messages you get from matches you don’t think are appropriate search for yourself the information some people send you Take charge
By rejecting someone you won’t be rude There is good and bad reasons that make you reject potential matches whether in the virtual world or in the real world Be direct but pleasant Sometimes it is best to thank them for contacting you and wish them luck in their search.
Give little information It is important that you strike the right balance between too little and too much information. If you do not provide enough information in your profile or quiz you could be overwhelmed with a wide range of matches Omitting too much information would undermine your chances of finding a good match Add some details about yourself so that people can share common interests with you However always remember not to give too much information at this time
SafetyThis is not only about giving information but also about how you want to attract a potential partner Far from scattering little touches here and there try to paint a unique picture of yourself Mention that you love the sport especially tennis that you play it every weekend but don’t mention where This is the private information that you should not divulge when communicating with potential partner for the first time When it comes to a date make sure you tell someone (friends or family) of your plans Tell them where you will be and for how long and above all always have a phone with you.
Use friendsYour friends should be involved in your online dating process. They can help you write your profile by offering advice or reviewing it; they can also help you rate your matches online and more importantly you can let them know where you are and when you will be meeting your match.
Be positive Being negative won’t help you in any way in an online dating It’s okay to complain about little things but don’t talk about your troubles at work about annoying neighbors or family issues Try to be positive and happy but above all, stay true to yourself.
Avoid using snapshots in your profileLong walks on the beach listening to all kinds of music enjoying partying or staying home with a bottle of wine while watching a good movie – anyone can write this Clichés are what they are They mostly are very boring and do nothing to distinguish you from the hundreds of other people who also like long walks on the beach etc.
