There are certain tips that should be borne in mind when using a dating site, because although you may be the best person on offer on the site, it will come to nothing unless you can get yourself noticed.
First of all you need to write a good profile, one that will catch peoples attention. Women for example should avoid the pitfall of mentioning sex; it will lead to the wrong kind of responses. Men should write about themselves and not just what they are interested in e.g. football.
Please try to remember what you are trying to gain out of dating; a long term relationship. Therefore be prepared to put some effort into your profile, a little work at the outset will make it so much easier to attract the right sort of person for you.
Try to identify your traits, are you a naturally happy person, are you outgoing or shy? Try to give your prospective date some real information about your character. If you have a particular hobby or something you enjoy doing, for example cooking, let them know about it.
But please remember to make that recent ones! Don’t be tempted into including a 10 year old photo because you will get caught out! it is a fact however that dating profiles that include photos attract more responses than those without; I guess People like to see what they are getting!
Listen to what the woman is saying and take an interest; ask her questions on what she is talking about. Try to ask questions that encourage conversation rather than just a yes or no answer. for example, you could ask what was it about a book that made them like it rather than did you like the book?
Don’t go overboard on the Dutch courage! A couple of drinks to be sociable are ok but dont get drunk you wont make a good impression. you make think your telling the funniest jokes and talking perfectly normally but believe me, you aren’t! I know because my wife tells me so!
Be confident. Men are attracted to confident Women. There subconsciously feel that a confident woman has the ability to attract Men more easily than a not so confident woman, so the fact you are with him will flatter him!
