Valentine’s Day is on the Horizon!

Posted by:

Valentine’s day is hot on the horizon, folks! Is it worth celebrating? And how can you best use this celebration of love to improve your online dating success?

I used to view Valentine’s Day as a shallow Hallmark holiday. I used to feel expressions of love were forced because of a colander date, and that capitalism was the impure driving force behind this holiday. Over the years, my perspective of Valentine’s Day has shifted into a more and appreciative understanding that ...

Getting Fit for Online Dating

Posted by:

It’s that time again…a New Year and new goals. As I think about my own resolution, I’ve decided to try to focus on exercise and getting more fit as I continue dating online. Thinking about my resolution got me curious about how others handle their resolutions and how much success people do or do not have.

The sad thing is most people do pick goals for the New Year, but give up before they see any change. It’s happened to me ...

Why music is becoming a big part of online dating?

Posted by:

Music is such a big part of our lives and is being used more and more in online dating.

I love music and love the fact that one can now use music on their profile on some apps and sites. It opens up a whole new world of communicating. Thinking about the earlier days of dating, people would often go to the club and dance. Music was right there with us every step of the way.

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 ...

In my online dating quest, I’ve decided maybe I should move into today’s method of technology-based or phone-based dating. Apps seem to be what all the cool kids are doing.

Six months of online dating

Posted by:

OK, boys and girls, this is a lot harder then I thought it would be. After six months of online dating, I’ve had just three dates, so I often feel like I’m doing something wrong. Brad warns us that finding the right person is not easy. He invested a year before he met his now wife.

Bowing out after the third date

Posted by:

In many processes, there seems to be a grace period. A time to see if things are right. Sometimes in online dating, the same is true.

I found myself getting past the first date and lining up a second. I was completely comfortable on the first date. I was even comfortable on the second date. On the third date, we both felt the lack of sparks. Although we were comfortable with each other we both agreed that there were no sparks. ...

What’s better a paid or unpaid dating site?

Posted by:

I’ve recently moved from unpaid to a pay dating site. I can’t sit here and tell you that there are massive differences in how the services work. What I can say is that the people on the paid sites seem to be more invested. That’s not to say everyone that I encountered on an unpaid dating site was not invested but it felt harder.
Things are similar as far as setting up your profile but to me, a paid site is ...

Difficulties with online dating

Posted by:

There are many difficulties in online dating and finding that special someone can be hard.

I recently met a woman online. She approached me, and I thought, wow this could be good. We were only talking for a day when she gave me her number. I thought ok this is easier than going back and forth on the dating site. Honestly, she moved quicker than I’m accustomed to and, for me, that can be a red flag. However, I decided to ...
