Online Dating Success Secrets - How To Get Over Rejection
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

One of the hardest parts of online dating is dealing with rejection. Obviously you will send emails to people you will not hear back from, you will go on some less than perfect date or worse, you will meet someone you really feel a connection with only to find out tha they are not interested in a relationship with you. Rejection hurts, but it does not mean that you should give up on dating the first time you encounter it. In this matter online dating is no different from traditional dating.

If you reach out to someone on a dating site and you don't hear back from them realize there could be lots of reasons for this. Maybe they are not available any more. A good online dating site should let you know whethere or not the person has opened and read your email or the last time they checked their profile. Maybe the person just has bad manners or it too awkward to say "you seem great but I don't think we're a match. Sometimes people aren't as kind or as tactful as they should be when dealing with you. You can't control that, that's their karma, not yours.

The good news is that rejection can spur you to learn something and to make some changes. For instance maybe it's time to make some changes to your profile. Is it fun and accurate and appealing? Does it contain enough information to soark interest? Are your profile pictures showing you in your best light?

Maybe it's time to update your profile pictures, your tag line or your "about me" section. Ask a trusted friend to look at your profile and give their honest opinion. Do you come accross as insecure, high maintenance or arrogant? Is your profile positive and upbeat?

Another thing to do is to go "spying on your competition". If your online dating service allows searches (as oppose to a service that matches for you) then look for someone like yourself (example, female, 40s in your zipcode) and see who comes up and what you like about their profile.

Remind yourself that there are plenty of fish in the sea. If someone doesn't meet your standards or didn't feel a connection with you then you shouldn't try and convince yourself to settle. Stay positive and look forward to other people that you may date. It's unlikely that you'll meet your perfect love match on the first or even second try. Especially if you haven't dated in a while, dealing with unsuccessful dates and rejection is a great way to learn about relationships and how you function in them and react to them. It' important to keep learning and growing.

So here's the key point - try to look at it not as rejection, but as feedback from which you can learn. I was rejected several times before I finally had online dating success. Each time I looked at my online dating profile and made a few changes that got me closer to finding whom was perfect for me. Rejection is part of life. Please don't let it put you off pursuiung the date of your dreams!
