Like any other form of social interaction it just takes time, practice and the right information to perfect it.
But there’s a huge difference between focusing on our strengths and trying to be someone we’re not.
For example, if you’re not that funny, don’t try to sound funny on your profile.
It’s very, very rare that you’re going to come across a stranger who genuinely cares about the problems in your life.
And you’re not going to find them on some dating website. I’m not belittling the troubles that you’ve been through and the challenges you’ve faced.
You have a bland profile description Here’s the thing; online dating is kind of like marketing.
You have to start off assuming that people don’t give a damn.
For example, I once had a friend who was the funniest dude ever, and would almost always manage to get a response from the women he messaged online.
But he would never escalate the interaction beyond a few jokes and smart talk, so whatever attraction these women showed him at the start would soon fizzle away, then he’d sit there wondering why they’d stopped replying to him.
Most women spend a lot of time on their dating profiles and they respond when a man actually notes the details not everyone notices.7.
You’re acting desperate Online dating is a bit of a numbers game.
There will be a time and place to share these stories with a potential partner you are involved with down the road, but the place to list these problems isn’t in your profile description.4.
