One Outlook That Blocks Dating Success

Posted by:

There’s this quiet perception that can sometimes arise while we’re reading profiles, connecting with someone, and assessing whether we wish to go deeper and to more intimate levels with a date. It’s a perception that influences how we are seeing the other person, how we are receiving their expressions, and it even impacts how we feel around them. It is a view that has immense power, and yet is so often left unnoticed like a stealthy sneak, dodging our awareness ...

Online Dating Has Transcended Romantic Ends

Posted by:

I would like to take a break from speaking to the heteronormative and monogamous focus of online dating. If I am to be honest about the inspirational forces presently arising in my own life, I can say that an understanding of human relating and even the intentions behind the use of online dating platforms is becoming ...

A Woman’s Approach to Online Dating

Posted by:

Everybody online is looking for a little something different—some may be looking for a casual dinner partner on Friday nights, others may be looking for a new father-figure for their children. I make no claims to be in the mindset of everybody, but from my lips to your ears, here is my (fairly typical) thought process as I log-in to my online dating profile.

It starts with a look at the subject line and first sentence I can read in ...

My name is Kate and we’ve been married for nearly 8 years now. While Brad has said some really sweet things about me in his Online Dating Guide and blog posts, I have to say, I consider myself the lucky one! ...

My Second Online Date – The “Too Good to Be True” Date

Posted by:

I recently spilled my guts about my online dating hesitations and the first relationship I was in that came via an online match-up. To date, I have only met three men in person after meeting on the internet. Yes, I am that stubborn about meeting people online, plus I have had equal, if not better, success in the tried and true, old fashioned finding-dates-through-friends-and-hobbies approach.

Anyway, two of my online dating first dates became relationships, and the third was ...

My First Relationship from Online Dating

Posted by:

While online dating is becoming much more common, I can’t help but sense the stigma still attached to it. This is why, as a mid-twenties, motivated and very social woman, I felt absolutely ridiculous making my first profile on a free online dating site. I have lived in a college town for the last 7 years… great to meet people, but it becomes very small, very fast! So when the “people” I met were all exes or dates of friends ...

She Stopped Replying! Now what? A Woman’s Perspective

Posted by:

Several dozen reasons exist why somebody who did respond to your initial message would suddenly stop chatting with you, and there are equally as many ways you can handle it.

Brad, “the dating advice guy” who has created this site, has a full section on this in his free Online Dating Guide, so I won’t bore you with repetition. I will, however, tell you from a first-hand standpoint about a few very specific situations that I have dealt with, ...

Why Do Professional Women Struggle with Online Dating?

Posted by:

Do single men really want the company of an educated and professional woman? While there is a certain novelty for a man to brag about being involved with an attorney, a nurse, a paralegal, or with a woman that holds a degree, it is dangerous grounds for the ego of some men. If you’re too smart, you are looked at with disdain. You’re obnoxious. You’re conceited. You think you know it all. It simply ...

Why You Should be Picky When Dating Online

Posted by:

You’re being too picky.

Those are words that well-meaning friends have said to one another for thousands of years. And for thousands of years it was often reasonable advice. But today, with availability of online dating, it’s quite possible that you’re not being picky enough.

I’m prompted to write this because of a video I saw by a woman named Amy Webb. Amy used data to improve her online dating life and she’s now written a book called Data, A ...

My Online Dating Success Story, Continued

Posted by:

Last year I talk about my overall experience with online dating, and how my experience turned into an online dating success story.

From time to time, I like to remind people of the joys I have in my life because I stuck with online dating (even after 8 months of failing!) to eventually find that success story. Today I have another reason to talk about my “success” from using online dating:

About two weeks ...

Level Setting in Online Dating after You’ve Been Cheated On

Posted by:

I have quite a few conversations with my readers on the topic of commitment, often around the issue of people not taking their profile down as you enter a committed relationship.

While emailing with one reader this week, I was reminded of something my wife did that was very helpful early in our relationship. I’m hoping passing along her approach will be helpful to others who are now considering entering a relationship after having been cheated on.

Match.com Baby

Posted by:

As many reader’s here know, I met my wife using the dating service Match.com. We’ve been married for 5 years now and are entering the next phase of our family: expecting our first child.

We decided to have some fun with finding out the sex of our baby by having a gender reveal party. If you’ve not heard of this it goes something like this:

  1. My wife and I went to the doctor’s office and had a sonogram done that reveals ...
