The beginner’s guide to online dating

The beginner’s guide to online dating

So, you’ve made the brave decision to give online dating a try – well done you! You have joined the millions of people who agree that internet dating is for proactive, intelligent people who want to give themselves the very best chance of finding love.

Follow these simple steps and you will soon be filling up your diary with delicious dates.

Choose a reputable dating site

As with anything online, you need to be discerning before you get your credit card out and sign up. There are free dating sites but the fact that they are free usually means that they have no joining criteria and are therefore more likely to be misused by people with shady agendas.

The best sites will let you to sign up and view your matches for free, before charging a moderate subscription when you want to communicate with members. Charging subscribers is actually a measure of trustworthiness as everyone who communicates through the site has to pay to do so.

My advice is to sign up to one well-known and trusted site that has a good track record. It is far better to focus on one site in depth than have multiple profiles on lots of different sites.

Honesty really is the best policy

It’s one of the dating rules you can never break, because they’ll soon find out when they meet you if you’ve stretched the truth.

When you are describing yourself try to imagine what your best friend would say (better still, ask them). Tell the truth about your good qualities but don’t exaggerate – remember you want your profile description to entice someone to want to meet you. Like a shop window, put the best bits on display but don’t advertise what you haven’t really got.

What are you looking for?

Try to think less about physical attributes – which will fade with age – and concentrate on the personal qualities that you value in people. Look at the people in your life now, what is it you love about them? In the past, what has kept your long-term relationships alive even when you have had difficulties?

Upload a photo

Choose a recent, full-face, smiling photograph of yourself on your own. Avoid shots with celebrity ‘friends’, your ex, dogs, motorbikes and other profile photo sins (some of these can be added to your photo gallery if you really must).

Your profile shot should just be a true image of you as you are now(ish). Ask a friend to help you if you haven’t got any pictures you’re happy with.

Etiquettes of Online Dating That You Must Learn

When it comes to social manners, real time dating is quite different from online dating. If you are considering finding hot singles on the World Wide Web, here’s a quick lesson on the etiquettes that you need to follow.

When you meet a person online, say on a date site, remember that you have not actually met the person yet. And therefore the pressure to create a flawless and perfect first impression is immense. However, do not sweat or succumb to pressure. It is perfectly alright to correspond with many singles at one time. However, abstain from portraying a Casanova character.

To get started with knowing your date or dates better, you can exchange emails. Most virtual daters consider the Internet as an absolute necessity of online dating. Writing emails will help you get to know the other person properly and allow you to express your thoughts and feelings in a subtle and elegant manner. Initially, you might not get as many responses as the number of emails that you send but if you stay steady and show the other person that you are giving them attention, the number of responses will gradually increase. While writing mails to them, try to engage them in a conversation instead of simply talking about yourself. After all, emails are written to get to know the other person better, isn’t it?



If someone finds you attractive and emails you but for whatever reason you do not wish to continue the correspondence further, it is perfectly alright to stop responding to their email. Virtual world is a spooky place and you never know what other people’s intention might be. Similarly, breaking with someone you’ve met online is perfectly fine too, if you have not really met the person in real life. Sending an email saying you can no longer correspond with them is perfectly fine and you need not feel guilty about it. Listen to your heart and try to find what you are actually looking for. In fact, this helps the other person to move on to better choices too! But, if your have met your virtual date several times in real life, you must break up with them face to face.

Finally, do not keep your online dating profile up for other interested men and women to ping or message you if you have already found a partner and are in a serious relationships. You might like to see where your relationship with your current partner is actually headed before deciding to be available to other singles again.

Here’s hoping these tips will help you come across suitable singles in your area.
