You deserve BETTER.
Ugh! You’ve joined one, two — maybe even MORE — online dating sites and it's always the same story: He’s already talking about marriage (EEK!), he’s WAY older, heavier or shorter than his profile indicated. He's hoping to get laid (should have KNOWN), hates kids and animals and — let's just say — his religion TOTALLY conflicts with yours.
Whatever was checked on your list of ‘must haves’ before is completely gone within the first 15 minutes of the date.
Or, maybe it’s even worse ... you’ve hardly had any responses at all (OUCH!). Your photo looks awesome and you spent TONS of time creating (what you think is) the perfect profile, yet ... crickets.
Whether you're older and single again and have no clue where to start, or you're what you like to call ‘technologically challenged’, it's hard to know what kinds of things WORK on a dating profile.
So what kind of picture should you post? How many? What should your profile say (or NOT say)? How much information is too much? Should you put it all out there or be a little mysterious?
Online dating is definitely a great option for finding a good man, and increasing statistics of success are definitely an enticing lure. You can preview tons of candidates and talk to them in hopes of finding out more about them — all while in your sweats sitting all cozy on the couch.
Then — when you're ready to meet — there’s the added benefit of being able to safely meet for a casual date in a public area so you can avoid feeling trapped or uncomfortable in a noisy bar late at night.
