How many dating profiles should you have?

Posted by:

When I first started with online dating, I planned to just test the waters. I went with one online dating site that seemed to be the most popular for a free site, Plenty of Fish. After this, I added more free sites to see if I could increase my odds. For me, the free site didn’t seem to be a good match or fit.

After a while, I wanted to try a site that was more in-depth in regards to dating analysis and matching. So I then moved to Match, but I kept my free online dating profiles going for a little while too. Nothing blossomed from the free sites so I turned all of my concentration to Match. But still…I found myself wanting to branch out and try something new. I turned to dating apps as another method. Today, I currently use two dating apps and one online dating site.

Now does having all of these options at one really help? All I can say is it definitely gave me more options and more opportunity. I can’t guarantee that it will work for you, but in my opinion, it’s better to have multiple profiles to increase your odds. I know that some people see this as some type of defeat, but don’t! At the same time, I would warn you to be conservative. Adding too many sites can get confusing and overwhelming…you can get to the point where you don’t even remember the details of the person you’re talking to. And you could be viewed as just plain desperate if browsers started seeing your profile on all the sites they visited.

What it all comes down to is this: do you want to be on multiple sites/apps or do you want to just be on one. Like anything else, it’s personal preference but try to be really honest with yourself. Sometimes we stay with only one service because of pride, which isn’t a great reason. On this topic, I found this article to be most helpful.

For me even though some of the links are dead now the content of the article helped me make a comprehensive decision.

Good luck with your online adventures and have a good day.
