Do Online Dating Matching Systems Work?

Many singles turn to online dating websites because they’re tired of bad dates suggested by friends, family and coworkers and are ready to take matters into their own hands. Others use online dating websites specifically for their computer matching services which offer suggestions of potential partners based on complicated algorithms that are fueled by lengthy questionnaires. But with many of the top computer matching services requiring singles to invest around an hour into creating their profile, it’s not surprising that busy singles are skeptical of making such a time investment without truly knowing whether these systems work. Moreover, compatibility matching dating sites often cost more than traditional sites that allow singles to find their own matches, leaving many singles wondering whether they are worth the added investment.

How To Write a Good Dating Profile That Is Impressive

If you are registered with a dating website, you must be aware of how difficult it is to go through a number of profiles and shortlist a few from them. Some profiles attract with a dashing pic but the inside information makes us reject them. And, the ones that do not have attractive display pictures automatically get rejected.

Now think of other people who face similar issues when they visit your profile. Some may find your profile picture really nice, however a boring, sulking or whining bio will turn them off. Or some may simply ignore your profile because your display pic just doesn’t catch their eye. Continue reading How To Write a Good Dating Profile That Is Impressive

Why Your Dating Site Date Won’t Call

We all know immediately when a date isn’t working out. There are awkward pauses, uncomfortable silence and the feeling that we would be better off at home, alone in our pajamas watching whatever was on television. But sometimes, after meeting someone particularly special on a dating site, the date will go great. The two of you are engaged and energetic and really seem to enjoy each other’s company. At the end of the date there are promises to get together soon. And then nothing. Nothing happens. Your phone doesn’t ring. Your email box remains empty. You scour your memory of the night of the date trying to recall if you said or did anything wrong. But your conscious is clear. Continue reading Why Your Dating Site Date Won’t Call

How an Online Dating Video Can Set You Apart

I would have never thought that any type of online dating video site would ever take off, but if the production value of the profile videos were as good as the guy in the dating video above, then perhaps this is the type of edge that can give a regular guy an advantage over the better looking 1% of guys in the online dating pool and help online video dating really take off.

Study Shows Attractive Men Also Have Confidently Written Dating Profiles

The Mail Online published an interesting online dating article recently about a new University research study which compares the attractiveness of a man’s online dating profile picture and his profile text. The results were interesting, though I’m not that surprised at their findings.

Basically, the study got together one hundred male dating profiles and broke them up into groups of 25 based on either a guy’s picture OR his profile text. Then they had one hundred women rate either the profile photo or text of each, ensuring that no woman would rate both profile aspects for any particular man, making sure that there was no biased influence by having both picture and text in the same group.

Cyber Stalking & Obsessive Online Dating

In the last post I talked about why it isn’t good to get caught up in a person’s particular online profile because of your own personal pet peeves. Today, I’d like to talk about something similar, not getting caught up in one person’s profile because you think they are the perfect match for you. There are a few dangers to this type of thinking and depending on the level compulsive interest, could be borderline obsessive, or dare I say, cyber stalking.

I was perusing YouTube and just happened to bump into a series of videos from a guy who goes by the user name TheWALOS who has made a series of videos called F@#% Off, Plenty Of Fish where he basically bitches and moans about what women put in their profiles. It’s a bit annoying in my opinion but take a quick look (I don’t blame you if you don’t watch the whole thing) then join me again below the video to read why this type of nit-picky pet peeve criticism will set back your online dating efforts.
