I’ve tried Brad’s method of contacting as many people as possible to improve my odds of getting a date. In my opinion, it’s not the best approach for me. I have a hard time going out with someone just to have a date. Having quality over quantity seems a better road to go down. Over the last two weeks, I have in a sense increased my odds by joining another free dating site called Plenty of Fish.
Although I have written ...Continue Reading →
So… I signed up to OKcupid. The process is easy and relatively straight forward. You pick your gender and your sexual preference, username, and password. After this, you are able to set up your profile. They lay it out so that it makes it pretty easy to express who you are and what you are looking for. They have tag lines like “what are six things you could never live without” “My favorite book so on and ...
Hello, I’m new here at datingadviceguy.com My name is Mike I’m going to be the (for lack of a better word) ginny pig to online dating using the guide and information found here at the site.
The first thing I have done is read the guide. I recommend this for anyone who is serious about online dating. It covers pretty much all the in’s and out’s of the dating world through cyberspace. This should be interesting for you as a ...Continue Reading →
After hitting it off on a few stellar dates, you’re finding yourself smitten by your new date. You’re compatible, attracted, and ready to invest in what it means to go deep together. Approaching that conversation about exclusivity isn’t always easy, as that topic of “what are we?” has a way of inducing an intense case of ...Continue Reading →

I wanted to compile some articles from my site to help you prepare if you decide to take the plunge into online dating, or give it another try, in the new year.

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.
When we meet people in the “real” world, often we have no idea when our next opportunity to date someone may come. As long as some key things line up, we’re happy to give the ...Continue Reading →
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 ...Continue Reading →
There are many areas of things you should avoid in your dating profile. One thing I really try to push people to do is to stay positive, but unfortunately many of us guys can wander into some negativity when we write our profile. And, in addition to staying positive, we want to be interesting! Today I want to talk about a few common approaches that guys take with their profiles and why you should avoid them.
Also, be sure to check ...Continue Reading →
Nobody wants to admit to having a superficial side, but the honest truth is that when it comes to online dating, a profile picture truly does speak a thousand words. We’re all judging books by their covers here because, honestly, how else do we know which book to read further?
Now I know I have read studies proving that members with any profile picture get a higher rate of response than those without, but I’m sure you’re not looking for ...Continue Reading →
If you are asking this question, congratulations! I hope you’ve found what will be a wonderful relationship.
That said, you may be at a point so early in this new relationship that you aren’t sure what you should do about your profile. Should you take it down? Or is it better to delete your profile? While not an area where a lot of people struggle, I have seen some misconceptions about how you should handle this so I wanted to speak ...Continue Reading →
Most dating sites include the opportunity for a person to include their salary range as a part of their dating profile. Some people feel this is a bit too personal so it’s not uncommon to see this left blank.
However, financial success can be very attractive. I remember reading (and I apologize that I can’t recall the specifics) that in dating, a man could overcome nearly any negative quality with enough money. Some negative qualities would just require more money than ...Continue Reading →
