Computer dating bypasses the necessity of running the club and bar circuit to find someone compatible to perhaps start a relationship with. You begin by posting your profile, an unavoidable start, which should include interesting things unique to you such as your dreams and aspirations, goals, interests, and hobbies and such matters that distinguish you.
You want to post this information to attract someone who feels comfortable with the type of person you are. You want to make your copy as interesting and readable as possible. Make the copy flow, not a list of staccato facts. You need to appear as someone who is a ball to hang and/or potentially date.
Write an honest profile that is concise yet spotlights a fun side of you. You’ll want to leave a ray of light that they can follow to the fun side that they could have with you if you connect. If you have to, rewrite, polish and up play your better points. Don’t dwell on the negatives.
Your picture should be a fresh one and not out of date. First impressions are the most lasting and you need to post a good natural appearing picture, not a studio shot.
You get a chance to practice your skills chatting with other singles online. Chatting online slows the conversation down to about 1/5 the normal speed, and gives you time to think out what you’re saying next in type. It can help format and refine your social communication skills.
Normally, you want to keep certain information off the record. Keep your personal details, such as address, phone number or email to yourself until you are absolutely certain that you want to go ahead and get more familiar with a particular person you’ve chatted and vetted.
Think about what traits you are looking for in someone. Look at their religion, ethnicity, level of education, interests, physical conditioning and any areas that might be contentious in the future. Investigate before you get too far involved.
Time and professional constraints have may singles chained to their work and professional obligations. Many of these singles cannot date co-workers or clients for fear of career suicide.
When they do get a chance to go out they may not feel comfortable in a bar or club situation. It may feel artificial and a hard way to connect effectively if they are thoughtful and discerning.
The world of online dating is a fun way for progressive people to meet new people. Many high quality professional people both white and blue collar as well as entrepreneurs spend so much time at work or study that internet online dating becomes a welcome and sensible alternative.
