We have also discussed at depth about profile pictures that you should have in order attract suitable hot singles on to your profile and break the ice. Now we are going to discuss something different – something that you must have given a lot of thought (and unknowingly before you zeroed down on one of the million choices. Yes, we are talking about profile names.

While women simply click on most profiles of hot single women, the latter on the other hand pay a lot more attention to details. So if you think you can impress her with a clever or smart profile name, well, you really have to be clever and smart without bordering on the lines of being weird or over assertive. Those are turn offs for women. This brings us to a conclusion – choosing a profile name is quote a task and must be done carefully if you want to get all the clicks from your type of women on a date site. Here are some ideas to help you proceed in portraying the right image.



Let’s talk about the ‘not-so-good’ ideas first – the common mistakes that most of us make while choosing a profile name for ourselves.

Too sexy references: While most date sites won’t allow this, a few cannot check clever spellings and a few don’t acre. But having a sixty-nine in your name or a size reference, well that needs to be changed immediately.
Actor-Actress references: While a name like ‘BondseeksVesper’ sounds cute, it may intimidate and even suffocate a perfectly suitable date. Women read into tiny details so such names as ‘BondLookingForVesper’ can be perceived as your quest for the ‘perfect’ woman and may make many women turn their backs on you thinking that you have way too high expectations. Others may simply find you too very committed-oriented and might get turned off at the very start.
 Bizarre alpha-numeric combinations: Dude that simply shows lack of creativity. It means you did not give much thought to creating your profile in the first place and are not ready for a serious relationship.  .
Teenage spelling: A profile name such as ‘UrGonnaLuvMe’ does not attract women. They only sound immature.
Proclamations of Love. Profile names like BeMine4Ever is an all caps NO. You don’t even know what kind of women is reading your profile. Why give the wrong signals and scare them?

Time for the good ideas now:

Age and location: ‘DennisOntario30′, ‘Robin1979Alberta’, ‘Mike29Vancouver’ are some good examples of letting singles especially women know your age and location at the same time. That’s good for starters!
Name and job: ‘HockeyPlayer34′, ‘ProfessorLuke’ and, ‘BankerSheldon’ are fantastic ways to let potential dates know your name and what you do. Should you want, you can simply stick to the profession and location and remain anonymous till some hot single woman clicks on your profile…and I bet that will happen real soon!

Online Dating Tips For First Timers

In this electronic age, more and more people are connecting via mobile phones, sms, social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter and instant messengers. Have you ever thought of seeking love and romance online? Unlike other forms of dating, online dating allows you to do it from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace.

You may ask – does online dating work? It depends. There may be a genuine online chemistry which may lead to a meeting and from there; it develops into a real life relationship.

Interested to learn more about how to get on the online dating wagon? We have 14 online dating tips for first timers to get started on the journey of finding true love online.

1. Sign up for an email address specifically for your online dating search. You can register for free email accounts from Yahoo, Google, Hotmail etc.

2. Consider installing an Instant Messenger program on your computer. Commonly used Instant Messenger programs are Yahoo’s Messenger, Hotmail MSN Messenger and Skype. You may wish to get a microphone and webcam for your computer as most Instant Messenger programs allow you to chat via your computer.

3. Decide which online dating sites you are going to sign up with. There are hundreds of dating websites to choose from. Some factors to consider when selecting a dating website are pricing, features, verification service, demographics of the participants etc. It is also useful to read up on the public reviews on the dating websites.



4. Once you have decided on which online dating sites you are registering with, you will need to create an online dating profile. To learn how to set up an effective online profile, please read our upcoming blog entry on How to write an online personal profile.

5. There are so many profiles to choose and read from at each dating website. Use the search features provided to find someone who meets your requirements and initiate contact with your matches.

6. The first contact with your love interest is usually anonymous. Do not reveal very personal information such as telephone number or your residential address unless you are prepared for any adverse consequences. Once you are more comfortable communicating with him or her, you may want to exchange your email or Instant Messenger contact details.

7. Decide the time and duration you will make yourself available for chatting online. (If you are in an engaging conversation, the minutes can easily turn into hours when you chat online!) and set ground rules for how personal chats are going to be. If the content seems to be sizzling up and you can sense that the other party is uncomfortable or if they have a bad day and do not feel like discussing some personal issues, respect their personal space and do not persist or you might find yourself back at the dating site searching for another match.

8. Be attentive to important dates and information so that you can send birthday greetings, congratulations electronic cards etc. to your love interest.

9. Be wary of people who ask you to send money to them online as there are many such people involved in scams which take advantage of lonely hearts.

10. Do not lie, exaggerate or exhibit pessimism. Focus on your strengths and make the most of your assets. Be truthful about your personality, looks, weight and marital status. After all, internet dating may eventually lead to a real-life meeting.

11. Be wary of the “too good to be true” online personalities. Your rich and young hunk may be an old and married grandfather behind the computer.

12. If you decide to meet your love interest for the first time, wear something smart. Choose a public area where there are plenty of people such as a restaurant but not so crowded or noisy till it drowns your conversation. The meeting should be preferably during the day. Do not meet at their place or yours.

13. Should you have any reservations about meeting your online love interest, do not meet him or her. Always use your judgement and trust your instincts.

14. Always inform a close family member or friend where, when and with whom you are meeting. Give them a call to keep them informed once your meeting ends.

Good luck! With this 14 online dating tips for first timers, you’re set to go.

Dating Tips and Dating Mistakes to Remember

So here you are looking for dating tips for women because yet another date somehow went sour.  You thought everything was sailing along just fine.  You wore your flirty dress and made your moves and though the evening was going well.  However, when it came to that good night kiss, all you got was a brief handshake and a man bolting for his car.  What happened?  The following are some common mistakes followed by some common sense dating tips that every woman should know.  

1. “You’re so Funny!  Just like my Ex!”

No one wants to hear about your ex-boyfriend or ex-husband on a first date.  Maybe your ex was an amazing guy, maybe he was the biggest jerk on the planet.  Either way no potential suitor wants to be thinking about your past relationships while trying to start up a new one of his own.  Live in the present, not the past.



2. “Can you hold that thought?  I have to take this.”

One of the most important dating tips of the modern age: Ladies, put that phone away.  Every man wants to have a woman’s full attention while on a date.  Your date does not want to listen to you make chit-chat with every friend that calls your cell phone during dinner.  This goes double for texting.  Cell phone usage during dinner is rude no matter who your dinner companion is, but especially so on a date.  Unless you are a doctor on call, leave that phone in your bag!

3. I swear to drunk I’m not god, seriously.

Of all the dating tips here at least take this one to heart: Drinking like a fish and becoming a sloppy drunk on a date never made anyone look sexy.  It is ok to have a glass or two of your favorite wine; it’s good for the body and the spirit.  Know your limits though.  No man wants to carry you home and clean vomit off his shoes on a first date.  

4. You’re so right!  You are always right!

You might think you are flattering his ego by agreeing with everything he says, but having no opinions at all of your own will eventually make the date rather boring for the both of you.  Don’t be afraid to show a little personality, joke around, and most importantly, be yourself.  Don’t be overly argumentative, but don’t be an opinion-less doormat.  A lively and intelligent conversation where a woman can hold her own ground on a topic can be quite a turn on for a man.

Follow these easy dating tips and you will be on your way to a better dating life in no time!

Dating tips for gay women: and you thought coming out of the closet was hard!

Once you’re out of the closet and okay with your own sexuality, the hard part begins; finding friends. Even if you’re not looking specifically for a date, finding like minded individuals will help you come to terms with your own sexuality and help move you forward to the next stage of your lesbian life.

The first dating tip for gay women is to find other gay women. Do a quick online search for ‘gar bar’ and your local area, and no matter how conservative you thought your neighbourhood was, chances are there’ll be one or two within driving distance. Pick a night of the week and take the plunge. If you’re too nervous to go by yourself, take a straight friend with you so they can be your wing woman. This will make you feel at ease, and might also help if your friend is uncomfortable about your sexuality.

If your friends have come to terms with your sexuality, they can be a great resource in hooking you up. They might know someone at work who is a lesbian, or pass a gay support centre on their way to school. If you already know people who are gay, they can look around their friends and see who might have the most common with you.

Another great dating tip is to find women who have similar interests as you, like in a gay book club. Search online, or ask at a book store that you know sells homosexual literature. If you’re an avid reader, this is the perfect place to meet someone who has interests similar to yours. If you’re more adventurous, go to your local sports club and ask about gay teams. You don’t have to be a good player to join in and have some fun, and most importantly, meet new people.

Once you’ve found someone you like, the next dating tip is to make the move. For people who are new to their sexuality, flirting with someone of their own gender can be quite a scary thought. Remember to take it easy and relax, people can tell when you’re nervous it might be taken the wrong way; she might think you don’t like her when you really do. Flirting is the same across all sexual borders. When you’re out with friends, pay special attention to her. Look directly in her eyes when she speaks, and even offer to buy her a drink. 
If you’re not sure if she feels the same, start off with slow flirting. Sit next to her and make your legs touch, or touch her hand gently when she talks. If she backs off or looks uncomfortable, take the hint and don’t push it further; you may end up losing a friend. If she takes the bait, ask her out for dinner and a movie. The classics aren’t just for the straight couples.

Keep these dating tips in mind the next time you go out. Who knows, they might help you find the love of your life.

5 Powerful First Date Tips for Men

After talking to a woman and getting to know her on the phone, it’s time to set up your first date. But what actions should you take on the first date which can ensure future dates.

By now, you’re probably wondering what you should say and where to take her. Perhaps, you might even entertain the thought of how to get her back to your place for a more intimate encounter.

In the next few paragraphs I’ll show you a few tips that’ll help you have an awesome first date.

Tip #1- Remove all expectations and worries

Probably the biggest problem which guys face on their first date is getting too worked up about being perfect. While it’s important to make a good impression, you shouldn’t put too much emphasis on say or doing the right thing.

An easy way to do this is to remove all expectations about any outcome. If it goes badly, then the only thing you’ve wasted is a little time and money. But if you have a great time, then you might find a great woman to take on future dates.


Tip #2- Limit your time

One big mistake that many guys make is to plan out this extravagant event for the first date. When you first meet a woman, you’re using the time to qualify her as someone who might want to date in the future. The best way to do this is to meet her for coffee or a drink. That way, you haven’t wasted too much of your resources on a woman who’s not worth dating.

Tip #3- Be in control and plan out the date

Women are attracted to guys who are in control of their lives and make decisions. If you take the initiative and plan out your event, then you’ll come across as more attractive. In addition, by telling her where you’re going, you will be able to go to a place of your choosing and limit your time like I described in tip #2.

Tip #4- Have fun and flirt

The secret to having a great date is to build rapport and attraction. When you’re out with her, this should be your first concern. If there is not attraction between the two of you, the date will go nowhere. So it’s important to have a little fun and flirt with her.

This basically means that you look for every opportunity to tease her and bring sexual innuendo into the conversation. One of the best pieces of advice I’ve heard is from David DeAngelo of ‘Double Your Dating’. He simply states you should treat all women your dating as a bratty little sister. If you can trip her up and tease her this way, you’ll come across as more attractive.

Tip #5- Know when to break the rules

The previous four rules aren’t set in stone. For instance, if the date is going well and you think you might end up sleeping with her that night, then you should forget about limiting your time. Just use these tips as you see fit and break them when they conflict with something that’s working for you.

If you pay attention to these five tips, you’ll end up having a lot more fun and excitement on your first dates. As a result, you’ll discover it’ll be a lot easier to build attraction and rapport with every women you date.
