Dating site tips are therefore essential for you to navigate this minefield to find the gems that are there is you know how to find them and also how to get them to find you ...
- 1. Good Profiles - Your profile is the first thing people look at and the first thing you will look at when searching for a date. To be on top of the game you have to be picky. Ignore those that do not put much effort into their profile because they are either not serious about finding a date or they might be one of the afore mentioned time wasters, liars or scammers. In return you must put a lot of effort into your own profile to be noticed and contacted. To do this on your dating site you need to be unique, detailed, but not too verbose and have a current but flattering profile picture. Any falsehoods in this profile will not serve you well because when you meet they will become apparent and it is a wasted date as they feel deceived.
- 2. Be Active & Be Picky - While there may be many great people on the site you need to be picky about who you choose to contact, investigate and talk to because the idea is not to get a dozen dates in a week but to get as many as you feel you can handle with only the people you feel comfortable and are interested in. On the flipside you need to be an active member and contact and flirt with many people, not all of this needs to go further than you want it to as you can politely say no to those that are not interested of you feel may be the afore mentioned problem members. Build up a list of potentials and start sorting what YOU want because you should feel you are in control.
- 3. Use the Dating site tools - Many people only use the emailing system within these sites which is a crying shame when they provide so many more options including your own space to host blogs, video chat features, VOIP features, real time chat and much more. As you get to know more people you can get to know them in more detail using these features so use them to sort those that are not quite right from Mr. or Mrs. Perfect Match!
- 4. Only use GOOD dating sites - This could be the most important dating site tip because like the members of dating sites dating sites themselves are not all the best match for you. Some have different focuses that you may not be interested in and others might cater for your particular sexual, religious or racial preference. The specialization is not the only thing worth considering though as the features and cost is also something to take into consideration.
