Nowadays online dating services are becoming more and more popular. People spend their free time with gadgets and prefer to find partners there than in the real world. The number of dating websites and apps is increasing, but when some people find their love in a week, others spend years in front of their screens and get nothing.
It is not easy to find your soulmate, but if you choose the right platform and create a unique profile, you will get more chances to be noticed by others. There are various studies and articles dedicated to online dating, but if to be honest, everything is much easier.
First of all, both men and women, look at the profile picture. The first impression is the most important one. In case your interlocutor didn’t like it, you can be 100% sure that all your efforts while choosing topics to impress him/her will go in vain. The extremely attractive profile picture should look like:
- real, as nobody will believe that he/she is talking to a famous actor or singer
- recent, as it is always better to show how you look now, not a decade ago
- with a good background, such as nature or sights, cause natural light make the whole picture look better
- without too much photo manipulation or cosmetics, as your real appearance might shock your interlocutor later
And what to do in case you do not want to show yourself to strangers? Turn on your creativity. For example, you can take a picture in a mirror, where part of your face will be hidden. Do not put random pictures, especially ones of flowers or kittens, from the Internet, it can make people think you are a scammer.
Nobody wants to read long texts. Do you like reading overlong descriptions of others? Do you want to know what university person finished or what he liked doing in childhood? Surely, you are not. The same can be said about others.
So, what do you need to put in your profile description? Some words about yourself, your hobbies and interests will be enough. Do not try to be too intelligent, do not boast about your clothes, cars, travel experience. Simplicity is one of the ways to make a person like you.
Sometimes people publish additional information in their profiles, such as phone numbers or Instagram pages. It is preferable not to say your exact address or to show pictures of your house, as the Internet is full of abnormal people, who can harm you. Do not do it, as there should always be some mystery in you for others. In case a person needs something, he/she will ask about it directly.
The right platform for you
The number of platforms can make you go crazy. No one has time to register on every social network or app and wait for his prince/princess there. You need to choose one-two apps and spend your time there, updating your profile and finding new people. Take a break from time to time, as spending weeks in search of someone special will just bring you down.
Apps for every taste
In case you want to learn languages, you can easily find apps where you can chat with foreigners. Social networks such as Facebook and Instagram can be also taken into account to find someone, but do not be surprised if people will put you in a blacklist, as such platforms are supposed to be used by friends and colleagues. Sexting apps are the best option for those who prefer to go directly to sex without talks about the weather, job, etc. You will surely find an app you need, Google will help you in it.
To sum up, it is always possible to make your profile unique. In case you are not sure how else you can change it, ask your close friends or relatives. A good real picture, a short sincere description of yourself and your hobbies, and sincerity and respect during conversation will surely make people interested in you. Be sincere and simple, and you will surely find your love online.
