How to Handle Online Dating Burnout
Fed up with the online dating game? Here's what to do:

Switch sites. Every online dating site offers something a little different. However, no matter how good an online dating site is, if you’ve been on it long enough (over a year), you’ve probably exhausted many of your options on there and must wait for new subscribers to show up. Most people only belong to one or two sites, so it can’t hurt to try a new site and check out a new pool of options.

Take a break. I’m a big advocate of taking online dating vacations. After a string of bad dates, bad emails, or other crappy experiences, it’s okay to hide your profile and blow off the site for a few weeks. Or, if your online dating burnout is more severe, let your subscription lapse. Spend some time with friends or try offline dating for a while, just to mix it up.
