Both men and woman are guilty of a barren profile and these are the people who bitch most often that they can’t get a date or that the website is somehow sucky and responsible for their being alone on a Saturday night. Humbug. Dating is the same as any other thing you want in life. With a bit of effort, everything is easy.
I don’t think these folks go to work and just sit there because they would fail and get booted back home. Finding a date takes a little bit of effort too, but it is not difficult.
We get mail from a guys who have no ad, no photo, no blog, never sent a comment to a profile, blog or photo, never posted in the forum and don’t send emails. One had been a VIP member for 3 1/2 weeks and demanded that we give him his money back because nobody was real because they wouldn’t respond to him other than to say no thanks. He just wouldn’t accept that women want to see more than nothing to reply to an email that says, “want to meet?” The answer is always going to be no. I find emails like this really frustrating because I’m sure the guy believes it’s all our fault.
If YOU want to get lucky more often, put a little effort into it.
- Make sure you have an ad or profile filled out. Don’t know how? See what other people do.
- No photo? In today’s dating world you need a photo. Not having a photo reduces your chances by up to 70%.
- Write a blog
- Write comments to profiles, photos and blogs
- Post in forums and message boards
- Join a chatroom or videochat
- Play online games
- Get involved in social media
These are all great ways to get noticed. The more you’re noticed, the more profile views you’ll have and that results in contacts. Think of dating in the same way an advertising agent looks at promoting a new product. It’s all about getting the most pairs of eyes on the subject. You.
