If you feel you are not getting any response to your online profile
from a top online dating site, you must be asking yourself what you are
doing wrong. Sometimes it is not what you are doing wrong, but what
aren't you doing right!
Using a top online dating service is teeming with profiles and you
have to do your utmost to make your profile stand head above shoulders
over the rest.
How many times have you logged on to a top online dating site and
seen the line " I'm the one your mama warned you about." Or how about,
" I may be just the one you have been looking for." It may be that you
wrote one of those stale lines to someone on a dating site. Depending
upon what time of the year it is and what the political situation is
stirring up, certain lines are used more often that other. If you want
to stand out from the crowd at a dating site, check out what other
members are saying. Chances are if you are rolling your eyes, everyone
You may also be sending out failure, loser signals. Just because a
person on the other side of the monitor can't see you, they can feel
it. Male and female, they are looking for someone who is self confident
on a dating site.
If you don't feel confident enough to go against Brad Pitt or
George Looney, have no fear. Most women don't expect to meet them when
they are using a dating site, but it is good to post a picture. Don't
post an idealized picture of what you wished you looked like, but what
you really do look like. Just as the ladies don't expect Clooney and
Pitt pictures on a online dating site, you shouldn't expect Fergie from
the Black Eyed Peas or Elle the Bod McPherson.
If you really want to catch someone's eye, post a picture of you
doing something a little strange, out of the ordinary. If you send a
picture of you bungee jumping, whoever browses your profile will
realize you are a daring person and might be interested in meeting you
just on that point alone. There are a number of ways you can catch the
eye of lots of people and before you know it, your mailbox will be full
of responses and winks and icebreakers.
