Choosing a Photo for Your Online Dating Profile

Profile PhotoMany people rush through the process of creating their dating profile but this is not something that you should hurry.  Your profile is the way that you let other people know who you are, what you like, and what you are looking for. Those that rush through the process of creating their profile will find out that it is much more difficult to meet the type of people that they want to meet than it should be. One of the most important elements of putting together a great profile is choosing the right photo.

How to Choose Your Photo
Choosing your photo for your online dating profile is actually very simple, if you let it be. First of all, you should choose a very current photograph.  Many people have a picture of themselves from ten years ago that they really love, and while it is a great picture for your parents and your friends to have of you, it probably isn’t really representative of who you are now. We all change as we age and the more current your photograph the better. A good rule of thumb is not to use a picture that is more than nine to 12 months old.

Next, you should make sure that your picture is representative of who you are. If you are a really introverted, private person you shouldn’t attempt to post nude or really sexy photographs. Your photographs should compliment what you write on your profile, so make sure that whatever picture you post that it goes along with what you have written. For instance, if you hate being outdoors you shouldn’t post that one picture of you when you were forced to hike with a friend!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this could not be truer than it is when it comes to online dating. Your picture is often what will draw people in and allow them to learn more about you, so have a picture that is representative of who you are, and could stand alone if it had to.

A lot of people make the mistake of trying to post pictures that show their entire figure. The main picture that you choose should be one that shows your face, front and center.  If you have the ability to post more pictures you can post full length pictures, but this isn’t necessary.  If you hit it off with someone you can always send them more pictures through email. Just remember that if you do post many pictures to leave something to the imagination!

Checklist for Online Dating

Online DatingOnline dating is a lot of fun if you know what you want, know what you are getting into, and are dedicated to making the most of it.  If you sign up for online dating and you aren’t into it, it likely won’t work for you. There are some really simple things that you can do to make the most of your online dating experience.

Online Dating Checklist
When dating online there are several things that you need to think about or do to make sure that you have the most successful time possible.

- Know who you are
- Know what you want from someone else
- Be aware of what type of people you are most attracted to
- Take time to write a profile that is honest
- Carefully select a picture that is representative of who you are
- Update your profile often
- Progress slowly when communicating with others
- Only meet other people in public the first few times you go out
- Look through other profiles often
- Take action; don’t expect others to find you
- Contact others with confidence

As you can see, there are many things that you can do to make your online dating experience the best possible.  Writing an accurate profile is probably the most important thing that you can do when it comes to dating online, so make this a priority.  Many people spend a couple hours writing a profile, and this is usually a good choice.  The more time you spend on your profile, the more accurate it will be, which makes attracting the right kind of people as simple as possible.

You may need to modify the above checklist to fit your needs or your personality. The basis of the checklist is that there are a few things that you need to do to get started.  What you do from there is up to you.  Some people are very passive about the online dating scene while others are very aggressive.  Put yourself out there and make the world of online dating yours.

Remember when you are dating online that it is supposed to be fun. If you take yourself too seriously you will have a difficult time finding someone who wants to spend time with you, so approach online dating with a great attitude, follow the checklist, and in time you will find that your online experience has definitely benefited your social life in a very positive way.

The Importance of a Good User Name

CoupleOnline dating user names are really important and you want them to say something about you, but in a good way. Many times online daters choose a user name that is not in their best interest. This could result in a lack of interest in your profile. There are some suggestions, however, to help you choose a good user name and some examples of what’s hot and what’s not.

First of all, your user name should reflect you in some way, but it should also be easy to remember and original. When people see your user name they will either become interested or turned off, so be creative. Choose something that is memorable, honest, short and fun and you will have a great user name!

The easiest way to choose a user name is to sit down with a pen and paper and brainstorm. Consider who you are, the types of user names you like, and then put it all together and personalize it. Doing this is the best way for you to come up with an original and catchy user name.

Examples of User Names
Some great examples of user names include names like RocknRollRoxanne or RusticRandy. You may prefer a user name like SanFranMan or BabyBlueEyes, both of which are acceptable and incorporate the recommendations of short, easy to remember, and original. The types of user names you will want to avoid at all costs include LonelyLiz, HopelessHarry, LookingforLove, and things of this nature.
It is obvious you are trying to find a date because you are on an online dating website. So, you don’t have to spell out your loneliness in your user name. Also, don’t sound too confidant either with usernames like HotLover or DrLove.

Get a Second Opinion
If you have come up with a couple user names you like but you are not sure which one will be the best for you then get a second opinion. Ask a close friend to evaluate the usernames you came up with and recommend the best one for you. Your friend will be able to tell you if the username seems desperate, sad, over-confidant, or lonely. More than likely a second opinion will be all it takes to help you decide on the best user name for an online dating site.
With this information you are now ready to begin the process of choosing a user name. Relax and just start brainstorming. Write everything down on a piece of paper and then see what you come up with. You may find that you have a couple of user names you don’t particularly like but by combining a couple you may find the right username!
