How To Ruin Your Online Dating Success
By Elena Solomon,
These days you seldom meet a
single person who never tried online dating - unless they arenít Internet
Since you are reading this, I assume you ARE online - so this information
can be crucial for your online dating success.
Most people placing personal ads on Internet dating sites seem to do
everything to RUIN any of their chances for success. Are you one of them?
Here is how to ruin your online dating campaign:
1. Choose a sleazy user name
Dating sites usually display your user name in your personal profile. So,
if you choose something like "hurdcoreXXX" or "badgirl_69", you are sure
to mess up your chances dramatically.
2. Write a timid message
Every day I see people writing in their messages things like, "I hate
this part but here it goes", "I never know what to write here"
or simply "Ask me". Your personal message is the only thing in your
profile that is UN-structured - the rest are usually just tick boxes. Make
sure you donít say anything interesting here, so no one will feel
compelled to learn more about you.
3. Don't have any partner requirements
Your requirements for a partner say VOLUMES about YOU. If you do not have
any requirements for a partner, you will sound absolutely desperate. No
one is attracted to desperate people.
4. Don't upload a photo
Most users of dating sites search for profiles with photos. If you do not
upload your photo, no one will find your ad. It will also severely damage
the chances of your "Hiís", "Virtual Kisses" or "Smiles" being answered.
5. Don't pay for premium membership
Usually online dating sites will allow you to place your personal ad for
free, but to write to other singles, you have to buy a subscription.
Although the price of subscription is cheaper than the price of a movie
ticket and popcorn, you should not be tempted. By sticking with the free
membership, you ensure you cannot contact anyone. Also some sites place
ads of premium members on top of the search results. If you do not pay,
your ad will appear on the page 247 of the search results Ė which will
make it nearly impossible to find.
6. Don't contact other members
Most online dating services will allow you to contact other members for
free by sending a "Hi", "Virtual Kiss", "Icebreaker" or "Smile" Ė an
expression of interest, to which the other member can respond. Donít send
any of those to anyone, or they may just answer positively. Think only
about how bad would you feel if they rejected your advances.
7. Don't change anything in your ad
Donít attempt to change anything in your ad. If you change something, it
may just start working. Keep with what doesnít produce any results.
8. Don't login to the website - ever
Once you placed your personal ad, immediately forget about it Ė and forget
your user name and password, too. Donít login to the website again. If you
do, your ad may jump to the top of the search results and someone may
write to you. Donít take this risk. Just place the ad and forget about it.
If you follow this simple guidance, I can
GUARANTEE that you will flawlessly ruin any
chances for success with online dating sites and your love life will stay
just the way it is!
