DatingThey Say a Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins With the First Step

This can never be any truer when it comes to online dating. You have taken your time to browse through personal ads and have finally shortlisted a number of profiles that pique your interests. The next step is to drop that person a mail – initiating that first contact with the other person in the hopes of a fruitful relationship.

Make a Good First Impression

The first impression really matters, and in online dating, it is that first email that you send that will determine whether you will get a response or not. That first email that you send can say a lot about your intelligence, personality, intensions, and much, much more.

How then do you enhance your odds of getting a response from that first email that you send? First and foremost, you have to be familiar with what such ‘probing’ emails contain. Alas, many people who initiate first contact rarely take the time to write a well-thought out email. As a result, their efforts come across as hurried and thinly-veiled propositions. As such, whatever you can do to differentiate your mail from that of a million competitors will go a very long way in determining your success rate with that first email. Read through the mail before hitting ‘send’. If you want your target to take you seriously, you have to take yourself seriously first.

Most People Response To Those Who Listen

Beyond the face value of the email, what it is contained in that email will ultimately determine your success rate in getting a response? Remember that that person probably gets millions of such emails everyday hence you have to stand out of the crowd. You should write a very sincere mail because most people tend to respond to those who carefully listens and takes the effort and time to understand their passions and interests. Most probably your target has some personal ad online; ensure you go through every detail of the profile before submitting your email for consideration. This way, at least you will be making reference to something on the content of your email.

Make Your Letter As Personal As Possible

Last but not least, you have to take the time of your life to clear some of the common uncertainty out of the entire process. Remember that the recipient of your email is being contacted by a stranger, thus, anything that you can do to make your letter as personal as possible will go a long way in terms of effectiveness. For starters, you should describe whatever it is that you enjoy doing, your likes, dislikes, hobbies, etc. If there are any interests that you and your recipient share, you should put more emphasis on it.

If you have a personal ad of yourself, you can even include a link to it so that the other party can get some idea of what type of person you are. It is advisable to avoid sending pictures in your first email (if at all you haven’t posted it on your personal ad of course) as the move may come across a bit audacious. However, you should make it clear that you aren’t averse to forwarding one over at the recipient’s convenience.

Online DatingBe Aware To Be Successful In Finding Love

The online dating world has provided people with endless opportunities of finding and connecting with their perfect match and possibly future life partners. However, if you don’t know the dos and don’t of internet marketing, you might not reap optimum results from your efforts of searching for true love. Here are a few rules when it comes to online dating that you must be aware of to be successful.

Find The Right Website For You

Firstly. You have to find a website that truly caters to your ‘type’ of people. Remember that different people have different hobbies, tastes, interests, and sexual inclinations. Thus, if you cannot get a partner or date who doesn’t share your dancing interest, ensure you sign up to a dating site that specially caters to like-minded individuals who love dancing. On the same note, if you are homosexual, it would be pointless to log on to a regular dating website as you will be better off in a special dating site. However, most dating websites have loads and loads of personal ads and profiles which allow people to sort through using different criteria.

The More Information You Put On Your Profile The More Interest You Will Get

Once you have selected the dating website to join, your next course of action would be to create a friendly and informative personal profile. Your ASL, i.e. age, name, sex, language, and geographical location are things that really matter when creating an informative profile. Fill in as many details regarding your personal life i.e. education, profession, interests, hobbies, and activities as much as possible. That way, people with the same interests can be able to locate you easily.

While it is OK to have a picture-less profile, a picture will go a very long way in making your profile friendlier and welcoming. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this can never be any truer. There are however people who are shy about publicizing their pictures on the internet, if you are one of them, you can take a common public figure such as a movie star or even a cartoon character which you think resembles or explains something about you. An Avatar too will do but try not to create a person that you are not unless you are on a dating website for the main purpose of fooling others and playing with other people’s minds.

Make Sure Your Profile Is Written Well

We can never overemphasize the importance of a personal ad or profile in online dating as is the official and first introduction to a very huge number of strangers who can be the best of your friends if given the right kind of encouragement. Therefore, ensure your profile is well written in the right language, has no typo errors, is easy to read and follow through. You might also want to ensure that the profile is written in a language that many people will understand, a universal language such as English will do, unless you target a specific group of people. Peculiar slang and profanities on your profile will do you more harm than good, well at least unless you are there for fun. You might also want to refrain from posting vulgar snaps or pictures of your privates unless you are on a website where all other people do the same thing.
