Enjoy your time using GenerationLove to meet like-minded people. Don’t panic if you haven’t gone on your first real-life date within one week! Love takes time.
First make up your mind what you want from dating sites: marriage, a long-term partner, friends, or just fun?
Decide if you can afford a particular dating site – do not fall for ‘Join for a dollar for three days!’. In three days you will only just be getting started!
Even if you think it’s cool, resist the temptation to write something really outrageous about yourself in your dating profile like: “I look just like Arnold Schwarzenegger”, or, nothing at all, like: “I don’t know what to write about myself, so just contact me, and we can talk". What you write in your dating profile is like the decoration in a shop window. Either it makes them want to come in or it doesn’t. You have to tell them just enough to leave them wanting to know more. Not too little, not too much.
Include a photo in your dating profile: one where people can see your eyes and your smile. Think about whether you would like to answer to profiles without a picture. If you do not have a digital photo, look for dating sites that offer photo scanning services.
When you write, do not send everyone the same generic introductory letter. It will not appeal to those you are writing to. Address them personally, and expand on something they mentioned in their profile: “You said you like dogs. I have always wanted to get one, but haven’t had the time to take care of it...”
Be aware not to give out any personal information whatsoever until you are convinced beyond doubt the personal you have contacted is trustworthy.
Before meeting someone, tell friends and relatives of your plans, and let them know when and where you are going.
