So, you’ve already thought about using chat dating sites as a way to meet your perfect match, but you’re stuck on how to get started. Fear not, read on for the beginners guide to creating an online dating profile.
1. Choose a username or header that stands out from the rest. Avoid using overused headers like’ Looking to meet new people’, or ‘Are you the one for me?’
2. Look through other profiles to see what catches your attention then use the inspiration to create your own headline. If a headline makes you smile it will make others smile too.
3. Use your header to let people know what you are looking for. Using something specific like ‘WLTM a man between 20-30 in London’ will filter out those who don’t interest you.
4. Once you’ve written your header message, don’t hold back on changing in if you realise it’s not working in the way you had hoped, This is your ‘tagline’, make sure it shows what you want.
5. Add a couple of photos of yourself where you look good, but still look like yourself. As a rule of thumb, only choose photographs that you would be comfortable with your friends seeing.
6. Tell other users about your interests, and what you are looking for. The more information you add to your profile, the more interest you’ll get.
7. Be honest about what you expect from using the site. If you’re just looking to chat online, let other users know. Likewise if you’re serious about meeting up with someone.
8. When searching for other users to chat to be as specific as you like but remember that it will narrow down your results dramatically. Leave some options open if you want more variety.
9. Keep your contact details and your personal information safe. There’s no need to share you phone number, or e-mail address, the site is designed to protect this information.
10. Keep at it. If there’s no one you’re interested in the first time you sign on, try again the next. Hundreds of users sign up to chat dating sites every day.
The only way to truly find out if chat dating is for you is to try it out. It takes minutes to create a profile and you could be chatting to available men and women in just minutes. There’s no time like the present.
