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 ...

Trouble deleting your online dating Profile

Posted by:

As of late, I’ve decided to move from a non-paying site to a paid site. Needless to say, I wanted to delete my old accounts from free online dating sites. I’d rather focus on a new approach with a paid site, although that doesn’t mean I think free sites are “bad”. However, I’ve read the horror stories about getting incorrect charges or autorenewals when using a paid dating service. That is, people complain that the dating sites are still charging ...

Four weeks into online dating

Posted by:

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 ...

My First Week of Online Dating

Posted by:

Hello everyone,
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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

The Superficial Truth about Profile Pictures

Posted by:

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 ...
