It is the internet age. There are a myriad of dating websites catering to almost every possible interest, denomination, and demographic. Since the internet grows and changes so rapidly, new dating sites are appearing all the time. Check out several sites if you are new to online dating. Many offer free trials, and it is a good idea to take advantage of these trials to get a better feel for the site. Also, it pays to research which sites are the most widely used. The more subscribers, the better. It also pays to find a site that does not set limits on the number of emails you can send. You do not want to sign up for a site that charges you per email – even if money is not an issue for you, other people that might have responded to your ad might hesitate if there is a charge for doing so.
The whole online dating process begins with your ad. Take a good look at yourself. Better yet, sit down at the computer and write an autobiography. Do not worry, it only has to be one page – but no more than one. What you are doing here is reminding yourself about all of your accomplishments and unique qualities. Focus on the positive, and make sure you talk about a few of your current interests, and especially about your tastes in easy-to-talk-about subjects like movies, TV, food, and sports. What are some of the interesting things about yourself that someone new might like to know? What makes you unique? For now, stay away from things you do not like. It is much easier to connect over positives than negatives, plus, your dates will associate the positive feelings with you rather than the negative ones! Also stay away from controversial subjects like sex, politics, and religion for now.
