10 Rules How to Find Your Love on Dating Sites

Nowadays, there are more opportunities to get acquainted with your future beloved person due to the Internet, in particular,  sites. And even despite the ambiguous reputation of such sites, there are people lucky enough to find their partner via the Internet, Next Feed informs

 

There are several rules, which you should follow in order to meet the right person and avoid disappointment.

 

 

 

1. Keep a cool head

 

Select those users whose profiles contain detailed information about the person; their appearance should be pleasant to you; your hobbies should combine.

You have to take this into account if you don’t want your first date to become the last because you have nothing to talk about.

 

2. Make a decision in favor of a serious dating site

 

When registering on a dating site, take care of the protection of your personal data. It is better to create a new email address that does not contain your first and last name. When communicating with a new person, do not rush to tell your last name, address, phone number.

 

If you want to be sure of the complete security of your personal data, then register on serious dating sites. Such sites, for the most part, are concerned about protecting the personal information of users.

 

3. Take the right photo

 

When you choose a photo for your profile, keep these rules:

Take clear photos in vibrant colors;

Smile, because everyone appreciates openness and kindness.

Do not take too candid pictures if you are looking for something more serious than a one-night event.

 

4. Fill out the profile with interesting information

 

The more information you share about yourself and your hobbies, the more likely you are to meet someone who is interested in the same things. You will immediately have common topics for conversation.

 

Also, mention in the text questions that will become the clue for starting the first conversation. Do not start acquaintance with a lie, write only the truth about yourself.

 

5. Take up the running

 

Write immediately without waiting for the first message from the user, you like. You have a goal – to meet an interesting person. So don’t waste time, otherwise, someone else will ask her or him on a date.

 

6. Make a date in real life as soon as possible

 

If you discuss everything online, then on the first date you may find yourself in a situation where there is nothing to talk about. And the real date is the best way to find out, whether your expectations get in line with reality.

 

7. Build on the risks

 

Do not run headlong into the airport, because the person says you to come. Otherwise, you could have problems. First of all, browse person’s profiles in social networks before a date. You have the right to know who you are going to meet.

 

8. Do not hesitate to ask questions

 

 

Find out everything that interests you so then there will be no surprises like five sons from three past marriages or refusal to accept the fact that your own children desperately need a second parent. Make a rough list of the most important questions and try to ask them on your first date.

 

9. Be careful

 

Remember, not all users of dating sites are good people, among them could be swindlers. Never transfer money to little-known people, and before the first date, tell someone from your relatives where you go and with whom.

 

Try to arrange a date in a crowded place, leave the path to retreat (for example, ask your friends for a “control” call), do not drink too much alcohol and never leave personal belongings unsupervised.

 

10. Don’t give up

 

Do not treat each contestant as a potential future partner: no one likes this. Remember that frequent disappointments can adversely affect self-esteem and emotional comfort.

16/100: Love in the Time of Algorithms by Dan Slater
Love in the Time of Algorithms: How Online Dating Shapes Our Relationships - Dan Slater
This book started out a little slow for me, as it spent a lot of time talking about "primitive" computer dating, which started as far back as the 1960s when a program would match up college students in Massachusetts. My interest picked up as it entered the realm of Internet dating as I know it -- and as I experienced. It also goes into the realm of forms of online dating that are still somewhat stigmatized, such as "mail-order brides" (dating sites that focus on matching women in the developing world with American men) and sites specifically to facilitate affairs (yuck).

One of the things I found most interesting was the fact that for many people, Internet dating has given them a sense of "abundance" -- whereas once people might have tried to "work things out" because they were under the impression that finding a new partner would be difficult, now it's supposedly easier for people to get out of lackluster relationships and to get over it more quickly by jumping right back into the market.

Somewhat disheartening was the cynicism of the teams behind most of these dating sites. Many of them do not believe they are facilitating permanent relationships -- they buy in to the idea that it's easier to find a mate and so sustaining a long-term relationship is less likely, and perhaps not even desirable. Because of course, once people pair off permanently, they have no more need for the dating site -- so it's not actually in exec's best interest for the sites to be truly "successful" in matching people up.

Like many books of this nature, this one skirts toward the alarmist at times: online dating makes people too picky, makes it too easy for them to be dishonest, makes it too easy for folks to leave relationships or be unfaithful, etc. This was not really my experience -- it was pretty easy to weed out the folks who were jerks, not serious, or otherwise "undesirable" before a first meeting ever took place, and everyone I ended up dating IRL was more-or-less who they presented themselves to be. And now that I am coupled off, I still have a healthy fear of how "hard" it is to find another worthwhile partner and thus invested in the one I have.

I think online dating, like other social media, exaggerates people's natural tendencies, or makes it easier to act on the less socially acceptable inclinations people have. But I don't think it can "make" someone who would have been a good partner in the past (i.e.: pre-online dating) a lousy partner in the present. Online dating, just like meeting people IRL, requires a certain level of discernment and self-awareness, and those who lack those characteristics are going to have a more difficult time of it.

It was interesting to learn more about OKCupid's demographics, which was the dating site I used. I opted for it for two reasons, both of which were very important to me: 1) it was free and 2) it allowed users to select "bisexual" as an orientation and search both men and women. But it turns out I pretty much matched OKC's demographics in other ways, too, as the book described it as appealing to the "geeky, writer types." No wonder I met the love of my life there! (This book also pretty much convinced me that the folks behind Match are all a bunch of crooks.)

So: I think people without personal experience with online dating would find this book alarming and might wring their hands over what the young folks were doin' these days. I think those with personal experience will recognize their experiences in some places and be shaking their heads in others. All in all though, it's an interesting look at something that has become standard fare in the dating world, and that is definitely here to stay.

When TV talk show host Montel Williams asked Ullman if he was preying on lonely people, Ullman shot back, 'Yes. Just like restaurants prey on the hungry and doctors prey on the sick and talkshow hosts prey on the people who are too bored to read a book.'

'Women who dress slutty or act ditzy do it because they're taught it's what you want. Maybe if you reinforced that you actually want a woman of character, instead of idolizing Playboy sluts, you could change the culture.'
