Advice

 

The world of online dating can be a lot of fun, and it quite possibly can lead to a lifetime of happiness for you and your future partner.  If you have decided to let Find Your True Love create a profile for you, then you have taken a very important step towards that happiness.  Below is some tried and true advice for successfully taking more steps:

 

Photos.  A picture is worth a thousand words, and that is certainly the case in online dating.  Unless there is a specific reason for not using a photo, be sure to include one.  Profiles without photos are far less successful.  Your picture is the first thing that people notice about you, and the right photo will help you to stand out amongst the millions of other people online.

 

Headline.  Your headline must be catchy.  After all it contains the first words that someone is going to read about you.  Be sure it is unique and free of spelling errors.

 

Content.  You’ve lured your potential dates in with your photo and headline.  Now it’s time to apply the wow factor.  This is your chance to shine, your chance to showcase why someone should choose you out of the millions of others that are out there.  Take the time to carefully write your profile and be sure it paints a picture of who you are and what’s important to you.  Better yet, hire Find Your True Love to help you with your profile!  Most importantly, be honest and be you.

 

First Contact.  First contacts are important.  Be sure to proofread what you write before hitting send, and be sure to write enough but not too much.

 

First Date.  So you’ve emailed back and forth a couple times and probably chatted online and/or on the phone.  You’ve done your homework, and you feel safe meeting this person.  It’s best to meet in a public place and in a setting that allows for conversation.  Keep it light—after all, you don’t want to be stuck with this person for hours if isn’t working out.  Some suggestions include meeting for coffee or ice cream, going for a walk, or meeting for lunch.  Let the conversation flow in a natural way—don’t make it seem like an interview, and don’t get involved in controversial or potentially offensive topics.  While tradition may call for the man to pay, it’s practical and appropriate for the woman to offer to pay for hers.

 

Having a terrific profile and being able to communicate effectively is important, but there’s more.  It’s equally important to keep an open mind.  Perfect matches come in all shapes and sizes, all ages and ethnicities.  They will learn from you, grow with you, and love you for who you are.  And most of all, they won’t be perfect, because no one is perfect.  But they will be perfect for you.

 

Life is about taking chances.  You have to risk being hurt in order to find your match.  You may need to date 10, 25, or even 100 people before you find your match.  Just remember that your match is out there, and you will find them (or maybe they’ll find you!).
