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 →
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 →
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 ...Continue Reading →
I get quite a few emails from people struggling to handle the situation where the person they’re dating is still active online. I hear from more women on this topic and some of those women don’t always understand my position: that if they’re not in an “exclusive” relationship, I don’t think the man is doing anything wrong.
I’ve talked about getting to exclusive already in my article on His Profile is Still Active: Is He Interested or Not? However, I ...Continue Reading →
I realize there are many conversations about men being intimidated by successful women but I’ve not talked with too many women about this subject. However, I recently received the following email:

I have what may be a unique question that I really need help with! My problem has to do with online dating and sharing my occupation. I will get a wink or an email from someone and the guy and I will email back and forth several times, it ...
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:
File this one under “long over-due”: eHarmony will now start showing when your matches were last active on eHarmony (logged in).
I heard that this change would happening back in May but I’ve been waiting until I see this for myself to write on it. Unfortunately, only paying members are able to see the last active date. I’m not sure how I feel about that: eHarmony members are often more concerned with privacy but at the same time ...Continue Reading →
I remember reading about devices in Japan that would alert you when you are near another single person who also had one of these devices. I read about this years and years ago (probably when I first started dating online in 2004) so I can’t remember all the details but I seem to remember that it was a totally separate device, not something that was a part of your cell phone. I also think there was some “hunting for each ...Continue Reading →
What is the difference between eHarmony and Chemistry.com? Is eHarmony better than Chemistry.com?
While the two services appear very similar, I will discuss what I consider the biggest difference between them. Then I’ll discuss some additional feature differences and why in some cases one of the two services may serve you better than the other.
Before I start, if you are brand-new to online dating or are not familiar with ...Continue Reading →
