Mistake #1: Sending her ‘just’ a wink Most internet dating sites let you send “winks” or “show interest” for free. When that really hot girl gets your wink, she sees a guy that’s not serious about wanting to contact her and too cheap to fork over the membership fee. Mistake #2: Not having a recent QUALITY photo in your profile This one should be easy, but the fact is, most men do not upload their photo. Profiles with photos get 10 times more looks than those without; and profiles with QUALITY photos get 4 times more than profiles with poor photos. When you log on to a dating site and search, don’t you search for women with photos in their profile first? Many women will assume that you have something to hide if you won’t post your photo ñ like maybe your wife.
If you don’t like your photo, have a professional one made.
You can have the most awesome profile and you can send her the most intriguing message, but she may never see it. Spend just as much time crafting an intriguing subject line as you do in writing the rest of your message.
There are many professional photo services that do nothing but create great photos for your online dating profile.
If you want to stand a chance against the other guys out there, upload a good quality photo.
According to Pew Research, online dating has lost much of the stigma it used to have.
Almost half the American public knows someone who has tried online dating or met a partner online and one-in-five adults between 24 and 34 have tried dating online. Many people actually do find each other online and end up having long-term relationships. My dad even met someone on Eharmony last year and is still dating her to this day.
Oh, one more extremely important note ñ make sure that you upload a RECENT photo.
Nothing is more disappointing than to meet someone and realize that the picture they sent you was 20 years and 40 pounds ago!
