5 Online Dating Tips For Beginners

If you’re new to online dating or just need a refresher course, here are five essential online dating tips for beginners.

To Sum It Up:
1. Don’t use headshots. You don’t look like that every day!
2. This is a dating profile, not linkedin. Don’t treat dating like a job interview!
3. Don’t just make lists. Show some personality!
4. Don’t send too many messages. Too many messages sends signals of desperation-don’t do it.
5. Have fun with it! Online dating should be fun, stop taking yourself so seriously!

    Using photos doing things you love is a great conversation starter. I’ve used pics of women skiing as my first email asking her where the best place she ever skied was. Plus, pictures of you doing what you love helps to show off your personality!

    Also, I went out on a date with a girl that used old pictures for her profile. She looked so differently in person, I didn’t even know it was her. I had this surprised look on my face that must have startled her. Needless to say, there was no second date – I didn’t want to chance what else she was hiding.
