Online Dating is Booming, Get in the Game and Find Someone Special!


Just a few short years ago, online dating was seen as "risky" at best. Yet today, you would be hard pressed to find a single person that has not visited, become a member, or at least been told to visit an online dating website. The reason for this online dating boom is that record numbers of people are dating safely and successfully online. Today there are "mainstream dating sites" that try to be all things to all people and "niche dating sites" that specialize in every imaginable preference. In other words, no matter who you are looking for, they are probably already dating online.

The 3 things that online daters struggle with most:
  1. Finding the right dating website
  2. Creating an appealing online profile
  3. Knowing what to say when communication with other members starts

To find the right dating sight, first visit an online dating directory that has a comprehensive list of dating sites. Once you select your site, it is time to create your winning online dating profile.

Here are a few rules you must follow to create your winning profile:
  1. Get some good, recent photos of yourself.
  2. Tell the truth in your profile.
  3. Don't be arrogant, cocky, or desperate.
  4. Upload a sincere, well lit, introductory video clip if possible
  5. Don't be shy! Fill out your profile completely
  6. Pick an catchy "screen" or "profile" name
  7. Become a paying member of the site.
General rules for successful communication on a dating website:
  1. Remain anonymous until a level of trust is built.
  2. Tell the truth
  3. Flirt a little when appropriate :-)
  4. Don't be afraid to ask for the date
  5. Read the other members profile and ask questions about their interests and hobbies
  6. Tell them how much you have in common
  7. Show your sense of humor
Most importantly, have fun and don't take any rejection you may experience personally. Remember, online dating is a sorting process and requires patience. Sometimes you will sort people out and other times you will be sorted out. The good news is that if you follow the online dating tips above and set aside a little time each day for interacting with other singles, you will go on some great dates and possibly even meet the person of your dreams. If you have already been dating online and would like to anonymously share your experiences, take "The Online Dating Survey". Thanks and Happy Dating!

While being truthful while filling out your online profile is important. I would like to add that approaching online dating with an open mind is also important. Many people form misconceptions about online dating, as it might not have been the norm years ago, but it is a rapidly growing industry. More and more people are turning to online dating sites since they spend so much time online. Never knowing that they might find their match made in internet heaven.

So keep an open mind and heart :)

This one can be considered as a topping.Never talk negative.Negativity spoils the atmosphere.Just stop being a draw-back and be happy.Why would anyone get interested in things that you are losing and killing you.Why would they like to share misery and sorrow with you ? So just stop there.Tell her how things are good for you.That you enjoy everyday of your life.You are hardly have anything that makes you feel bad and you are right now the happiest person on this planet.

Read the safety articles on dating - there are many available. They’ll make you feel a lot more secure and you’ll be able to carry out secure dating correspondence in no time. Once you’ve set your profile, the chances are high that you’ll find someone who has the same interests you have. Email exchange via the site usually is the next step. If you haven’t already, give it a shot, you’ll be impressed.

Apart from this post, I have gone through almost all of your posts these are really very advantageous and unique, keep it up please!

Well, my name is Eva, I am enjoying my motherhood spending wonderful times with my baby. Whenever I get time I used to surf internet because I also run a dating website, according to my knowledge for the right person, online dating can be a very effective alternative to traditional dating. Not only does it provide the convenience of getting to know someone in front of your computer, but it also will help ensure that you meet someone who shares similar interests. It's important to keep in mind that there are a number of different things that one can do to increase the chances of successful dating in the online world.

I agree that going on a webdate is definitely the "in" way to date now. A lot of people are doing it, there are many sites to go on, and many successful stories with it!

Lauren said...

Oddly enough, I have yet to try online dating, but mainly because I am busy right now trying to get my career started. I feel like I do have the time to date someone, but my sole focus for the time being should be on my work. I am a graphic designer and getting paid the right amount for my work is important right now because I want to know that I am financially stable going into a relationship that could potentially be long term. I hate having to rely on someone else to pay, let alone LETTING someone always pay for things! But, maybe someday if my Mr. Right doesn't come back I may try out a website.

Nice post!
Online dating can be a little scary at first. You are jumping onto a website and sharing yourself with thousands and sometimes millions of other people. You are putting yourself out there with the risk of rejection in hopes of finding anything from a date to a spouse. It can be a lot of pressure to put yourself under.

The world of online dating has opened up a world of possibilities for women and men alike, increasing access to potential viable partners and decreasing loneliness in our fast-paced busy world. As with anything new (while it’s not SO new, it’s new when you think how long humans have been dating!) and promoting change, there’s always some initial fear or resistance, since it’s somewhat unknown and different from the practices we’re so familiar with. In any case, online dating, despite its high success rates, yielding many successful romances and marriages, seems to have gotten a bad rap as possibly dangerous. However, when you examine the facts, is it really any more dangerous than more traditional forms of dating?

Traditional forms of dating are varied in and of themselves. Think of all the dates you, your friends and loved ones have been on. You may have met your date at the grocery store, at a social event, at a bar, or even on a setup through a mutual acquaintance. In all of these cases, just as someone you might find online, how much do you really know about them until you meet them? The answer is, not much.

With that in mind, it is important to be cautious when dating, whether online or traditionally! However, caution and complete avoidance of dating due to fear are two totally different things. Take standard precautions. Meet your date in a public place for as many dates as it takes for you to feel comfortable. Let friends or family know where and when you’re going, just in case. While cautious, these are important steps to take to date safely, and not to let your fear of the unknown possible outcomes to stop you from living a full life!
