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 ...

Letting Go of Expectation

Posted by:

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.

Personally, I had success with this approach. But one reader contacted me with some doubts:

I have a question regarding when to ask a girl out through ...

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. After all, who does not find some pleasure in showing the world how wonderful they can be? Yet, another layer of ...

How Do I Approach a Woman I See Every Day But Don’t Know?

Posted by:

For me, online dating was a godsend: I always had trouble approaching women in day-to-day life. For example, if I’m remembering correctly, I only got two phone numbers at a bar in my life prior to online dating (and one of those only applies if Applebee’s counts as a bar). It was always something I overthought and the benefits of online dating propelled my ability to find and connect with people.

If you’ve read my guide, you know that after ...

Online Dating Scams are More than Requests for Money

Posted by:

Online dating scams are something that are happening all the time. I would say that most weeks I receive emails from someone who is dealing with a scam, sadly it’s often after they’ve already sent money to the scammer.

In the past when I wrote on identifying online dating scammers, I often concentrated on the fact that scammers would ask for money. My advice, which I still believe, is that if someone asks you for money through an online dating ...
