Honesty in Dating
What's the best thing about dating websites? They're extremely targeted. And by making honesty your policy, you'll be able to find just what you're looking for in a dating partner.
This amusing and informative article points out that most of us grew up unpopular, but that's just fine, because it's what gave us personality. It builds character, just like your parents used to say.
The problem with growing up unpopular is that it tends to make a person want to get as many dates as possible when they first hit an online dating site. For many, it's the first time they've been exposed to an abundance of dating singles, and it makes them want to load up, like a plate at a buffet after you've been starving all day.
The difficulty with this approach to Internet matchmaking is that it results in generic-sounding dating profiles that are designed to attract as many singles as possible. And while a surfeit of dates looks good on paper, in practice it results in tons of dates with people that don't even match your interests.
Instead be honest and specific, and take your time to craft an accurate personal ad. You might consider having your friends or family look your profile over, to see if it really describes you. Be confident and tell potential dates who you really are.
Tricking people into dates with an inaccurate profile might get you more dates, but you'll just revert back to your usual self before long, and end up having wasted your time. It's best to be honest, and be yourself. You might not get as many dates, but you'll get better quality dates, and be likelier to find just the right person for you. And really, that's what you're after in the first place, right?
