How to Meet People Online

Welcome to our Meet section. You’re likely here because you want to meet new people, right?! The good news is meeting people online is often a lot easier than at bars, or even parties, as there is a lot more singles in one place online and everyone is looking to meet someone. At a party only so many people are single and you have to gauge if they're interested in talking to you before you approach them.

Online, on the other hand, you just send someone a message, and if they like your profile, they will message you back. No awkwardness. And you can send someone a message even if they don’t happen to be online at the same time you are. In real life you both have to be at the same place at the same time to have a chance of meeting.

So how do you meet someone online? Well, first you create a great profile and upload a few profile pics of yourself, and then you browse other profiles till someone catches your eye. If they do, then you send them a short message, complimenting them on something in their profile and asking them a question about it.

Dating Site Luck - What Makes You Lucky Online?

You could say that dating is about luck, but really it’s also about common sense and statistics. As mentioned, there are a lot more singles online than at any party and you don’t both have to be at the same place at the same time to meet. That alone ups the statistics of finding the right person.

Beyond statistics, there’s the common sense factor when it comes to attraction. The first thing to bear in mind is that people are generally attracted to those who lead a life they enjoy. Or if they've had a rough spot, are working hard to get the life of their dreams. Ambition, determination and a positive attitude is attractive.

Online who you are comes out in your profile. You don’t “meet people online” really, you meet their profiles. Therefore, you have to create a great one. The most important things to remember can be fund in the next section.

Online Dating Luck - the Profile That Brings You Luck Online

So how to meet new people online? The first thing you need to do is create a great profile. Below you find some tips for that.

  • When writing your profile, state things in the positive way - what you enjoy, what you are looking for, etc. Rather ask for honesty than say you dislike dishonesty.
  • Upload great profile pictures that show off both you and the life you lead. People want to see you have a life.
  • Let your passion for what you love in life and sense of humour shine through.
  • Avoid cliche statements like, “I like staying in on a Friday night, but I also like going out.” If you want to say that, then talk about what you love doing when staying at home and also what you enjoy when going out. Add some juiciness to your descriptions!
  • Make sure you run things through spellcheck - poor grammar and spelling is a big turn off online.
  • Avoid too many emoticons and abbreviations.

So where to meet people online? Well, you browse profiles and when you find someone you like, you contact them!
