The world of online dating, whether you take to online dating through a chat dating site, on online dating agency, or a phone chat forum, doesn’t quite follow the same rule as traditional dating. All that someone has to judge you on in the first instance is the picture you paint of yourself though your online dating profile. If that isn’t up to scratch you’re instantly setting out to ruin our chances of scoring a date.
Once you get your profile perfect, you need to make sure you get the rest of it right from the chat, to the date. Here are the three most common mistakes that men are making in the online dating world.
The biggest mistake men make when writing their chat dating profile is to be unoriginal. Think of your online profile as a dating CV. In essence, you’re trying to sell yourself to the highest bidder. If you’re profile is boring, and says the same things as women have read a thousand times your chances of standing out from the crowd are pretty low. Try to be as original as you can, talk about interests that are specific to you rather than the whole male population. If you can’t be original at least try to be specific. Rather than just saying that you like reading, talk about your favourite book or genre – it gives women a starting point when they start chatting to you.
Women, just like men, skim images to see who they fancy and who they don’t. Some people already have a type in mind and there’s nothing you can really do about that but you can make sure your photo attracts attention for the right reasons. Use a recent photograph that is good quality and shows only you, smiling preferably. It should be close enough so your face shows. Never, ever use a photo that shows you and your ex on holiday in Barbados.
Playing the virtual ping-pong game is tiring and off-putting to women. It can make them feel you’re not interested, that you’re playing them, or that you just haven’t got time for a date. It’s fine to spend some time getting to know your prospective date but once you’ve got what you need don’t keep them hanging around waiting for you to ask them to go out; just go for it. The longer you wait, the more chance there is that your dream date will be snapped up by someone else and you’ll be back on the hunt again.
What are you waiting for now? Get online, get your chat dating profile sorted, and get chatting to women. Follow these three tips and you’ll be inundated with offers.
