My 5 Online Dating Tips

With an increasing number of men and women turning to online dating as a way to start a new relationship, I thought it best to share my own personal experience and recommended some online dating tips. Online dating can seem scary if you have never done it before, but with myself having years of experience and success with it, I can highly recommend it.

The online dating tips that I would like to share here is a collection of experience, as well as what I have read and listened to by successful internet relationship coaches. Please bare in mind that these tips are only from my point of view, so they may not work for everyone.

1. Know what you want in a partner before you put your profile live on the online dating websites. Write down what is important to you in a partner, so that you never have to settle again. For me, a non-smoker became really important because I can't stand smoking. So I wrote in the positive tense that I wanted someone who was healthy and took care of their body, because that was really important to me.

2. Have a great online profile. Use a great picture of yourself and make sure you are smiling. Be different, by writing out what you enjoy and be honest about it. If you would prefer a partner who shares the same interests and passions, then write those down. So when someone who shares those same interests and passions comes across your profile, they will probably write to you. Never give interest towards someone who you are only interested in because of their picture. Remember, you want someone who you can have a great conversation with as well.

3. Always communicate before meeting up. Whether this is by email or phone, I found it better to learn more about someone before we met so that we were more comfortable with each other. It also gives you more chance to get to know the real them. Asking questions about the other person online through email is usually easier than face to face. Especially if you really want to know if they are on there for a series relationship or not.

4. Quality is better than quantity. Never settle for someone just because they are the only person communicating with you at the time. If they don't match what you want in a partner, you can say not interested by email or online messages. Don't waste your time or someone else's when you know it doesn't feel right and you know you won't be happy with them in the long run.

5. Choosing the right online dating website to use. There are a few free online dating websites around, which I did use, but the ones where you have to pay, had a much better quality of men when I was looking. I also thought that if you had to pay to use the service, then you're probably more series about finding that right relationship. It means a lot to you, so you pay for it. We generally value more the things we pay for, then the things we get for free.

So, even though it took me a few years to find the love of my life, I found him online. I researched many online dating tips and kept improving my profile and sticking to what I really wanted. I tried a few different free online dating websites first, but it wasn't until I decided to invest in my relationship, that I found the right one. So remember if you are series about finding the right relationship, then online dating is a highly recommended method by me, and I am living proof that it works.
