Online dating success – 10 golden rules for girls

If you’re on the singles scene after a long break, the world of online dating can seem quite intimidating. The internet is now the most common way for couples to meet – but, as with any social revolution, there are ‘rules’ you should know about before you embark on your search for true love.

  1. Find a dating website that has a good reputation and that will allow you to view matches before subscribing. That way, you’ll have an idea of standards and service before committing any cash.
  2. Be prepared to put time and attention into your search for love – a little perseverance can go a long way too. In the real world, most girls kiss a few frogs before they find a prince.
  3. Spend time on your profile, and make sure it’s a true reflection of you. Include one or two interesting facts and mention the things you like doing. But you don’t have to tell your whole life story, and avoid words like searching and soul mate. Photos are a very important part of your profile. The 5 profile photos you need (yes, that’s 5) are a head shot, a body shot, a waist-up shot, a shot of you doing something you enjoy in your leisure time, and a shot of you somewhere you love.  
  4. Open your mind and try to let go of set images of your ‘type’. Look back over your past relationships and find what was really important to you in terms of qualities and values. The kind of person you wanted to be with when you were 15 is probably very different to the kind of person you want to be with when you are 50.
  5. Don’t waste time on time wasters. If he doesn’t ask you out within four emails he probably isn’t going to. There is a big sea of fish on the internet and therefore no need for you to waste your valuable time and energy on someone who seems to be stringing you along.
  6. Keep email responses light and chatty. Remember, it is much easier for things to be misinterpreted when written than in a face-to-face conversation.
  7. Wait 24 hours to respond to emails – at least at first – so that you don’t appear too keen.
  8. Don’t volunteer your phone number first.
  9. Don’t get involved with a married man, even if you tell yourself it’s just an online flirtation. It will almost certainly lead to pain and disappointment for someone.
  10. When you make an arrangement to meet a date, stay safe. Always let a friend or relative know where you’re going and the name of the person you are going to meet.

Avoid Mistakes On Your First Date With These Dating Tips For Men

Most dating tips for men include stunts and schemes that usually don’t work because they are all about making you look good and confident without taking into consideration how women actually want the date to go about. Men are often so caught up in their own self that they make serious mistakes that will not only get them ditched before dessert, but their reputation could be ruined too. Word gets around a lot faster among the ladies.

Mistakes to Avoid

Here are some mistakes to avoid that most dating tips for men fail to mention. First, save your questions for later; this is not a job interview. The minute the woman feels she has to work hard to get your attention, she’ll be running as fast as her heels can carry her.

Don’t be boring and serious by talking all about yourself, the economy and politics. For one thing, before you even open your mouth, listen first. Her line of thought shows what she’s interested in. If she asks about or mentions music, try to explore that topic for awhile until you can get more of a grasp of her interests.



Do not bring her gifts. It makes you look old-fashioned, desperate and dodgy. If you bring gifts without even meeting your date first, how will you know if she even likes them. She’ll get the impression that you do this with every other girl.

Save your lame pick up lines. Girls hate them! It’s so insincere and awkward. They’d spell l-o-s-e-r all over the napkin instead of giving you their full attention.

Do not scrimp on dressing up. If your date is a colleague or someone you see daily, make sure you change your clothes. A woman feels special if you go out of your way to look nice for her. No need to be so fancy, just choose a material different from what you wear to work. Say slacks instead of jeans, leather shoes instead of sneakers and so on. They remember what you wore that last week. Yes, even your white shirt underneath.

Never fish for compliments. This is just so pathetic when the guy asks if you like his tie, his choice of restaurant and so on. Confidence is sexy. If you have to ask, most likely it’s not as great as you think.

Being the Best Date

With so many don’ts, I wouldn’t blame you if you’d skip the date and stay at home. But the thing is, make it something fun for both of you. Go to a place with a nice view, great food or a great band or any place that could be a great ice breaker.

Ask, listen, then ask some more. Everyone wants to talk about themselves so do not steal this opportunity from them. With these dating tips for men surely you’ll go further than the first date.
