The Online Dating Busy Season

Posted by:

When is the best time to try online dating? I personally don’t feel that there is a best time: if you want to try online dating, it’s the best time to begin! However, I also realize that for many people they don’t even know if they’ll like online dating and want to try it when they have the best chance.

If you judge the “best time” to try online dating, then that time is just around the corner: January each year. ...

Is Every Person You Meet Horrible…or Something Else Going On?

Posted by:

There have been times in my life, often at work, where someone has pointed out a way that I could improve how I’m doing things. I’m almost always surprised when I receive this advice: mostly because I can’t believe I didn’t see that what I was doing was a bad way of doing things.

I think that most of us, from time to time at least, lose a little bit of our self-awareness. When a celebrity says something absolutely crazy, ...

Being Open Versus Being Miserable

Posted by:

In my online dating guide one of the things I emphasize is being open to different qualities people may have. I recommend this because people get a bit odd with online dating. That may sound rude, so let me explain.

Niche Sites

Posted by:

Big dating websites often market themselves on their high number of active users, which is appealing precisely because it ignites a sense of confidence that your search for love will be successful. However, what if too much choice puts strain on your search rather than aide in its success? The fact is, the more profiles that are on a database, the more time and effort required for you to sift through and find someone who seems to be a possible ...

eHarmony 60% Off for Halloween

Posted by:

eHarmony is having a promotion running this weekend where you can save 60% off of the 6-month subscription. This is a really big savings and normally a 20% savings is as high as I generally see on the 6-month plan.

With 60% off, the amount you’d pay in total should come out to about $107, assuming my math is correct. That’s $20 a month (more like $18 but let’s just call it $20 to make things simple). If you consider that ...

Everyone to be found on an online dating interface is registered precisely because they are on a search. We sign up to have access to these databases of singles because we are looking for something to satisfy our wanting, and not everyone has the same goal in mind. While browsing the profiles of potentials, one is quick to notice that people desire everything from a serious relationship to casual dating, a hook up or simple companionship to roll with in ...

Does Asking a Woman Out Quickly in Online Dating Work?

Posted by:

I’m a big fan of getting to the first date quickly in online dating. I wrote about this in detail in my article on planning the first date. I didn’t realize this when I started my website, but it turns out that lots of people giving online dating advice hold this opinion too.

How to Write an Impacting Profile

Posted by:

While filling out a dating profile, have you ever felt you were merely indulging in egotism, or worried over how to present yourself in an honest yet alluring fashion? I remember feeling a subtle yet smug satisfaction at being able to speak in depth about myself, what I wanted from a partner and posting my favourite pictures of myself.
