Online dating has become a huge hit over the past few years. There are so many couples out there who met over the internet, got married, and live happily together. It provides an easier, and more reliable alternative to bar hopping or speed dating or something.
However, even though it offers a lot of benefits a lot of men do not use it, or if they do use it they will give up quickly. These online services do work, yet so many men fail to make use of them and end up throwing in the towel early.
If you are looking for the woman of your dreams you have to be persistent. Few things work on the first go and it is all about patience and determination. There is the saying that there are plenty of fish in the sea, well a lot of guys should know that fishing is about patience and waiting for the best catch. But even if it is about patience, there are some tips you can use to catch a big one and that applies to your online profile as well.
1. Be unique. Continuing the fishing metaphor, a lot of guys try to use very basic bait that they think will appeal to a wide variety of potential catches. The problem with this is that it makes you seem like a boring guy that women do not want.
Instead, decide what kind of woman you want and aim for that. Be honest about yourself but tailor it to appeal to them. It does not matter if you are turning away other women if those are not the kinds of women you are interested in.
2. Be confident. When using online dating it can seem like it would be difficult to come across as a confident man, but it really isn't. How you word things plays a huge role in whether you are perceived as confident or weak and insecure. Do not use self-defeating lines like "You probably will not respond." or "I hope to hear back from you". Be confident in what you say.
3. Stay positive. Even if you are lonely or feel you are not worth a great woman, do not put these types of things in your profile, ever. Instead be positive in your profile, even if you do not believe it, simply typing out that you are a great guy with a lot to offer can have a positive effect.
4. Use interesting subject lines. The thing about online dating is that no matter how great you are, if the woman does not open your message nothing will happen. Attractive, worth-while women probably get dozens of messages a week, so if you use some generic title like "hi there" it will likely get tossed in the trash right from the start.
You should use unique titles to draw her attention. Give specifics, say how a certain aspect of her profile caught your eye or something to pique her curiosity so that she will actually look at your message.
