Social networks are used for many things i.e. to share documents, keep us informed or aware of the lives of our friends and so on, but they can sometimes also be a good method for dating, although of course that is not their main function. If you have an account on Facebook and Twitter and you are single, you can use it to contact potential partners on these social networks. Here are some tips for online dating on social networks like these.
Make an interesting profile. Take time to complete the description of yourself and include in it what your strengths are and what you feel proud of. For example, put a link to your site or your personal blog if you want to share your work or hobbies, thus, let others know your skills or what you love to do.
To expand your contacts, find people who you admire, old friends you lost track of or acquaintances who you can find by name or email address. You can also make related searches to your personal interests or your job, so you can contact new people or groups with like-mindedness.
Of course, you can also initiate contacting with friends and contacts of your friends. Ask them for friendship, answer their tweets or make comments on their walls. Remember to enter with grace, humor and avoid invading or harass them. Nothing is more tiresome than someone who invades a wall with comments or responds to absolutely everything that one publishes.
Have you contacted someone you like to meet you personally over coffee? If he/she is a friend of a friend, why not ask your common contact to learn more about that person.
If you get ‘No’ for an answer, do not be demoralized. That person will have his/her reasons for not wanting to meet you personally, and you should not take it as a personal rejection. Keep trying with others, and do not insist or become a ‘fatal fan’ that invades privacy. In that case, the only thing you will get is the removal or blockage of you as a contact on that particular social network.
Be smart, discreet and funny and your profile should transmit good vibes. What you write online is recorded, so do not use the space to criticize, bring negativity or being rude. We are already surrounded by it, why increase it more. We are all naturally attracted by interesting and inspiring people, so become one of them and rest assured similar people will contact you to start a relationship with you.
Do not talk on the wall of intimacies or super sexual performance. It is in bad taste and will make you seem insecure and self-centered. But you can be sexy, flirtatious and sensual in an appealing manner, for example, you can say you are single, you love to get movie recommendations or have a coffee with someone interesting.
Be active, generate emotions and discussion, share thoughts, questions, videos or interesting information and there will be many people interested in following you. Be the first. It is infinitely more attractive.
In short, take the time to present yourself with an attractive profile and be active and generous in sharing information and comment from other publications. At the same time, make the world know you would love to find a mate, so someone other interesting singles would like to meet in person.
When you visit an online dating website, for example, on a Thursday night after work, you can find an average of 50,000 people connected. It might seem a paradise for singles, but when you have never had a blind date, it would rather become a maze for you. Before you give in, read these tips to select an interesting profile and discard the less promising candidates for online dating.
Profiles with photo
Also in online dating, the photo is important because the first impression counts. What your eyes say? How is your smile? A blurred photo, a sad or too serious face, an image that seeks to impress (a naked torso, a very expensive sport) are not good ones.
A date means spending time, energy and even money. If you do not know, how he/she can excite your curiosity. If you do not like the person when you see him/her in person, your mood will plummet. And remember, a date aims to have fun.
Many men do not put photo for fear to be recognized or, as they say, because they have an important position. In short, they do not risk enough and ultimately prove to be distrustful which is surely a bad starting point ion online dating. If you put a profile photo, you play and accepts the same conditions.
Profile Types to Avoid
What you want is the most important part of a profile and it is where you describe yourself as well, so read the profile carefully. When you have browsed a reasonable amount you find something funny that there are some repeated descriptions and that is best to avoid. For example;
The ones who do not know what to say and fills the space saying not know how to describe themselves.
The ones using excessive sense of humor instead of saying what they want.
The ones who, instead of a description, write a poem or quote about love or life.
Those who begin by acknowledging their objections to online dating or admitting that they are heartbroken and do not trust men/women.
Those asking and even require a certain size, height, weight, occupation and hobbies. It means the person will be quite demanding in real life.
There are many more types to avoid which you will discover with experience. In short, these are all clichés and/or show a lack of originality, open-mindedness and courage.
The Most Promising Profiles
Of course, it is difficult to be fully exposed on online dating websites. So it is up to you to choose a man/woman capable of overcoming the shame, distrust and fear and who dares to talk about himself/herself with truth and originality. The one who is exposing his/her feelings and describes the relationship that he/she would like to keep, which gets you smile with a touch of humor without being tacky. In short, the profile should arouse your curiosity and desire to try to find a partner for online dating.
