How to Reign in the Online Dating Competition
The size of the dating field matters. In the "real world", the number of prospects is high, the number of your competitors is higher and the approach can sometimes be cumbersome. No wonder many of us favor the easy access and no pressure approach of Internet dating. And when everyone seems to be on equal footing, all's fair in love, as they say.
But online, how is it that some online daters definitely get more attention than others. Someone like Trish Young, a single mother, is one of them. Ranking first in RSVP, Australia's largest personals web site, Young shares her online dating secrets in a recent article.
Although there is still a slight stigma that online dating is only for the desperate, but in all actuality, dating online not only helps you meet other singles (hopefully to date them) but also gives you more freedom and control to explore the field. In addition, it can also improve your self-confidence.
Names say a lot about a person. The same applies online. Choose a profile name that best portrays your personality. A grabbing name dictates the number (and types) of people who will reply. Secondly, know what you want. Just like Young, you can make a list of what you're looking for in a partner. Then write the exact headline that captures what you want.
E-mails, especially the first one, are descriptive of the sender. Pay attention to the words used, the tone implied, and even the amount of words. If it's too long, maybe it's just copy-and-paste. Keep your distance from profiles with no photos, little details, etc. They're usually hiding something. Finally, remember that less is more. Putting too much information about yourself or trying to show every aspect of you removes the mystery. Why would anyone still want to talk to you when they already know you completely?
