Currently more than 40 million single Americans use online dating sites and the Internet in search of love. Although the World Wide Web does bring more prospective dating partners to your inbox, there are some important steps you need to take in order to make online dating a productive, safe and enjoyable experience.
The following are some useful online dating tips for women to help you with this process.
1. Post An Attractive Profile Picture
One of the best ways to stand out from the millions of other profiles out there is to include an attractive photo of yourself. The chances of being approached are much higher if you include a photo with your profile. Avoid using a group shot, which can just add unnecessary confusion. Use a headshot photo with you smiling. It is also a good idea to include a full body shot as one of your secondary photos.
2. Craft An Engaging Profile
Create an interesting photo that will pique people’s interest so that they will want to get to know you. Be specific. Instead of saying you enjoy cooking, briefly describe a favorite meal you like to cook. Keep your tone positive and upbeat.
3. Play The Field
Dating more than one person at the same time might feel a bit strange at first. However, when it comes to the online dating scene, it is a smart move to meet a variety of different people. It is partly a numbers game and partly about being able to really hone in on the person who is an ideal match for you.
4. Make Your Move
Ladies, you don’t always have to wait for the man to make the first move. Trust me, most men will love it if you contact them first. In an initial message, say something that shows you have actually read his profile and let him know what about him stood out. Keep the initial message brief. Short messages tend to get the best response rates.
5. Be Direct
Don’t play “hard to get” when it comes to online dating. If you play it cool and don’t respond within a reasonable amount of time to someone you are interested in, he will likely think you are not interested and move on to someone else.
6. Don’t Wait Too Long To Take The Relationship Offline
Although you may make initial contact on an online dating state and spend some time getting to know someone over the Internet, eventually you will want to take the relationship offline. It is usually better to do this sooner rather than later.
7. Safety First
It is always critical to take safety precautions. Never give someone your address or home phone number until you really get to know the person. Also, your first date should always be held in a public place. Let a friend know who you are meeting and where. Halfway through the date, go to the restroom and call or text your friend to let them know everything is fine.
8. The Perfect First Date
What makes a first date ideal will vary from person to person. However, for most individuals something casual like meeting for coffee can be a perfect first date. It takes the pressure off of something more formal and allows you to sit and talk and really get to know one another. It is also inexpensive and doesn’t require a big investment of time. So if it doesn’t work out, you will be able to quickly move on.
9. Be Patient
Don’t give up if the first or first few people you meet for a date don’t work out. There are plenty of fish in the sea, and every date can be an opportunity to learn what type of person really is suitable for you.
10. Make It Exclusive
If you do hit it off with someone, there will reach a certain point when you may want to make your relationship exclusive. Keep in mind that since you both have dating profiles on dating sites, you can’t assume that the man you are dating hasn’t been talking to or dating other women. There will need to be clear communication and an agreement made between the two of you to go exclusive.
