The Truth About Online Dating Sites


If you are single and thinking about entering the world of online dating, you need to carefully consider your options. There are literally thousands of sites out there, catering to every single type of person and relationship. You might opt to simply give one of the most well known and popular ones a try, but my advice is to have a good look around, see what is out there and make an informed decision that is best for you. Hopefully this short guide will help you.

I’m Spoiled For Choice – Which One Do I Go For?

This is dependent on YOU. How much would you like to spend on membership? What kind of person are you looking for? What kind of relationship are you looking for? What kind of information do you want to put in your profile? A lot of the popular sites offer a free trial of some sort – during which you can either have full or limited membership for a set time, or your can look at other’s profiles to see if you can find a compatible match. If you are completely new to online dating, it’s probably best to go for one of the big names out there. All of them have an extremely large user base with hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers.

What Should I Put In My Profile?

The best advice I can give you is to be completely honest, both about who you are and what kind of person you would like to attract. If you work in a fast food restaurant, don’t say you are an airline pilot, if you are 35, don’t say you are 21. The more honest you are, the more likely you are to meet someone who will be a good fit for you. Make sure you put an up to date photograph in your profile. List your hobbies and interests, talk a little bit about your life up to now, and end your description with a a summary of the kind of person you would like to date and what kind of relationship you are looking for. Don’t go too overboard with the amount of information in your profile, but make sure you cover the important points.

When you are browsing potential dates, choose carefully. Make sure you read their profiles carefully, and if the site allows it, don’t be afraid to contact them(via E Mail or IM) and ask them questions. Most people won’t mind this, as they are there for the same reason you are. It goes without saying that if you arrange to meet someone, you should do so in a public place. Not only is this safer, it makes the date feel less pressurized. Above all, make sure you have fun and don’t take things too seriously. Dating is all about meeting new people and having a good time.
