Online dating comes with a whole other pack of problems than your typical face-to-face dating. How do you sum up your essence in a few short lines in the about me page? Although online dating is still relatively new, the proof is in the pudding: according to Match.com, 1 in 6 marriages now are the direct result of virtual hook-ups. The few quandaries this article helps you navigate during your online dating sessions may just help you knock it out of the park.
Your About me page is the lure on your fishing rod: you must cater it to the type of catch you're looking for. More important than if you used old clichés or have negligible grammar mistakes (both rookie mistakes, but easily overlooked by a kind eye-who wants to date a hypercritical person, anyways?) is the attitude you express while looking for an online date. Although expressing what you dislike can be done in a humorous manner, who wants to go on a date with somebody who, if given the chance to tell you something about them, blathers on about things they hate until they run out of time? Keep your dislikes either simple or funny, but always short in comparison to the rest of your online dating page.
After you're done saying that you think Adam Sandler is a stain on cinema history and you want to have Stephen Hawking's babies, for instance, let people on the online dating site know what you're looking for: a casual relationship? Friends? Marriage? Picnics? Threesome? Pegging? Be specific. Also, be as open or as narrow as yo'd like, but know that if you're too narrow then you may not net any catches. Alternately, if you specifically say you're into everything, you might drag up some real bottom-dwellers. By portraying a positive attitude through your text, minimizing focus on what you dislike (unless for a little while to be funny), knowing what you're looking for, and a little luck, you may just reel in the catch of your life.
