How To Be Successful Online Dating: Some Science Behind Success

As more people use online dating as an avenue to meet their soul mate, how to be successful on online dating is becoming clearer. Clues have come from scientific research and studies and has given some understanding of why it is becoming an increasingly accepted avenue to find love. There are even a couple of discoveries that might surprise you.

A study conducted by Dr Jeff Gavin and Dr Adrian Scott of the University of Bath, had numerous interesting discoveries, and a couple which were quite surprising, about men who go online seeking a relationship.

These clues might help you understand how to be successful online dating

The more couples talked on the phone before they meet the deeper the relationship”

When love seekers meet online they email each other to explore if they're a good match. The email exploration gives couples and chance to get to know each other.

So without the burden of a physical connection, couples are open to share who they are and what they are looking for. If they still match then they exchange phone numbers and start sharing more about themselves on a more personal level.

It makes perfect sense then, that meeting online and communicating online (and via the phone) for some time before couples meet, gives them a chance to really connect. It gives them a chance to connect at a deeper level before the physical urges start taking over.

Couples are able to develop a real relationship where they share their hopes and dreams, before they meet face to face. The initial communication may take place over weeks or even months before they meet in person, giving the chance for the couple to invest themselves in the relationship.

Men tend to be more committed to the online relationship than women, possibly because of the anonymity of writing, gives them a chance to express their emotions more readily than in real-life.”

This was a little surprising at first but actually makes a lot of sense. So often in life we expect men to keep their emotions under wraps. It is comforting to know that men feel free to express themselves fully online, as they are still anonymous when they first meet someone online.

This is such a freeing experience for men and one that would see them investing themselves in the relationship. As we know when men invest themselves in something they form an attachment and that attachment allows them to be free to feel safe and express who they truly are.

“This study shows that online dating can work for many people leading to a successful meeting for almost everyone we surveyed”

Knowing how to be successful in online dating is available to you. Take the time in the beginning of the online relationship to really connect with each other. There is no need to rush the process, if you've meet your soul mate they aren’t going anywhere.

So many people are now meeting their soul mates online, it makes perfect sense to give it a try. Make sure that you invest some time to get your profile reflecting who you really are to make sure you attract the right people. At the end of the day relax and have fun with it and you might be surprised who you meet.

True, cause I met my soulmate online. We didn't talk much on the phone before we met, but we did write extensive emails to each other :-)
