So you’re ready to dive into the world of online dating, but maybe you don’t know exactly where to start. Don’t worry the process of meeting people on the internet is incredibly easy. It all starts with deciding which website is right for you, as there are thousands of sites available and they all cater to something different. Once you choose the site that specifically targets your demographic (or the type of person you want to date), you’ll want to sign up and upload a photograph. This photo should be an accurate representation of what you look like today, so the forget about choosing the decade old picture where you had hair and were 40 pounds lighter.
Choose a photo that is flattering, honest, and shows you participating in an activity; whether you are hiking, gardening, playing a sport… Anything! Then you will want to create an engaging profile that draws people in and make them want to get to know you on a deeper level. The name of the game is to be honest and still paint a picture where people can see themselves taking part in your life as you described it. Once you do these three things, you can start searching through the database, sending messages, and even chatting in the chat rooms! It’s that simple!
