A reader of our blog decided to give online dating a try. He is brand new to the whole process and wants to know what women notice as good, bad, or ugly. It’s been a hundred years since I’ve tried it, so I’m admittedly a tad rusty. Maybe you could give some tips to help the brave man?
I remember thinking that half the men on dating sites were likely married, living with a woman, or in federal prison. Sometimes these types get bored and starved for attention. Therefore, if there was no picture, I bypassed immediately. I don’t care how witty the profile was, either.
I think that trying to be too funny or verbose can come across kind of dull. You can’t be Seth McFarlane in a dating profile. Leave the comedy to the professionals, please. A sense of humor is great, though! Wait. I don’t think I’m helping much, here!
What are the best and worst online dating profiles you have seen?
What would make you take a closer look at one? Do women have to be virtually buttnaked and wearing heels to get a response? Do men have to flaunt their success and rave about wealth to keep a woman’s attention? (I know. Totally stereotyping genders – you get my point, though!)
Should you include pictures of your children?
Other than a boatload of patience (Carnival cruise, anyone?) and great internet connection, what will you absolutely need to manage online dating?
