How to Get More Responses at Online
by Sharon A.
So, youve decided to join a dating website. Youre
hoping someone out there will find something interesting
about you and try to get to know you better.
Many members worry about appearing desperate
or over keen. This can mean putting in less effort into
a profile in a bid to play it cool. Of course,
nobody wishes to be seen as desperate. However, keep this
in mind: how will others know what you want, if you dont
ask for it? How will they ever appreciate your finer qualities
if you remain tightlipped?
Therefore, to be successful in the online dating world,
your profile is highly important. Members search through
a large number of profiles on these sites. If there is
little information about a prospective date, then they
are more than likely to skim over an empty profile as
quickly as possible. Look at this as a great chance to
The first aspect of your profile to consider should be
your photo. No matter how much emphasis people put on
the importance of personality, the old expression, its
nice to put a face to a name couldnt be more
Physical appearance plays a big part in the real world,
when first becoming attracted to someone. Also, it helps
to ensure that people will remember you. The golden rule
when posting photos on dating sites is obvious
BE HONEST. Weve all heard stories of people whove
posted a photo that is ten or twenty years old. Or worse
still, a photo of someone else entirely! Now, if you never
intend to meet someone, then this is not a problem. But
lets be realistic you wouldnt be on
a dating site if you werent hoping to meet someone!
A misleading photo causes all sorts of unnecessary problems
on a first date. You will have your date questioning your
honesty. You want to turn up for dates relaxed, with your
best attitude put forward. Still not convinced? Just think
how you would feel, if you were deceived by a photo, and
that should be incentive enough for you to be accurate.
So what if youve gained a few pounds? Aged a bit?
Give yourself some credit, youre still a beautiful
person, and sure to be someones ideal type.
So, try to get a recent photo of yourself, looking the
best you can. Avoid shots that are so dark or distant
that no one can see your face. People will only see either
an insecure person, or someone who has something to hide
and move on. Just think how frustrated and disinterested
youd be if you came across such a picture.
Lets talk about location. How much information is
right? Obviously, for safety reasons you arent going
to put your address into your profile. Apart from this,
put as much detail as you feel comfortable with. At least,
put the state you live in. At most, your suburb. Anything
in between (such as the city your suburb is located in)
is also fine. We all know this, but it bears repeating,
do not put your phone number on any public site.
It will save everyone a great deal of time if you are
open and honest about your sexual preference.
Talk about your interests and hobbies. Dont just
leave it blank! And dont worry if they dont
seem interesting enough. This is who you are. If you are
honest and forthcoming with this information, you will
be more likely to attract the type of person you are after.
For example, if you were the district running champion
in high school, but never intend to run again, dont
put it in as a hobby! To put in hobbies you have no interest
in, in the hope of appearing more impressive, will only
attract people you have nothing in common with in the
here and now.
So, if you like quiet nights in, say so! Try to paint
a rich and detailed picture of what the real you likes
You also really need to share a part of your personality
with your audience. What are your beliefs? What are you
looking for in a person? Also, if you feel you have special
qualities such as a sense of humour or kind nature, try
to write your profile in a way that sincerely reflects
You are now ready to make your first attempt at creating
a winning profile! Remember, you just need to keep it
honest and current. You need to show youve made
some level of effort to let members know who the real
you is. And when in doubt, remind yourself: give the sort
of information you yourself would be wanting to know about
when looking at other members. Good luck!
