Dating Advice – Why Women Should Initiate Contact Online and Offline

With today’s modern technology becoming a major part of our daily routine,  it’s time to toss out the old rules book, or you might end up alone on another Saturday evening.

In my video, I discuss my dating advice and cyberdating tips to change your fairly empty InBox to one that becomes overflowing.

You may be thinking, shouldn’t the man always make the first move? You may be saying, I’m an old-fashioned girl and I’d never ask a man out. I say, rethink things if your dream date doesn’t automatically find you.

This includes doing your own search and sending a short complimentary email to a potential date on your favorite online dating site. Often, the man will feel flattered to hear from you. At times, he can be overwhelmed with the many choices and you might have gotten overlooked. Look at this initial email as a simple nudge or a smile so you will appear on his radar, or in reality, in his InBox.

Men get frustrated so easily after writing to many women without receiving a response. You might make his day, and if so, a date may be added to your calendar and you might find yourself in a nice new relationship.

Think of it like creating hints for your wish list for the outfits you might want as a birthday gift. Go ahead and wink or flirt, but if you really want to get his attention, flattery will boost his ego with a personalized email. He may be pushing the reply button in a New York minute.

Cyberdating Tips for the New Year

Happy New Year

 

As we count down the minutes and hours until 2010, it’s time to ring in the New Year with some cyberdating tips for the new decade.

If you found yourself alone again this holiday, it’s time to take a personal inventory of what you truly want in a relationship. Here’s my dating advice for those looking for love online.

1. Cyber-Dating Tip #1 – Narrow down your search. Do your friends complain that you are too picky? Have they stopped fixing you up? There’s nothing wrong with knowing exactly what you want in a relationship. Remember, no one really gets it all. We are an imperfect society. Make a list of what is most important to you. Number it from 1-10. Now, focus on the first 3 items on your list. Is it Religion? Bicycling? Hiking? Strolling through museums? Put those key words in your search. You might be delighted to see what pops up.

2. Cyber-Dating Tip #2 –  Reach out and reconnect. Did you get too busy during the year and miss out on meeting someone you started to communicate with online? Take a look in your Inbox and find those you found interesting but didn’t have the time to meet. Reach out and send an email with a simple, “Happy New Year.” If their profile is still online, assume they haven’t met “the one” yet. It may be a time for a new beginning for both of you.

3. Cyber-Dating Tip #3 – Refresh your profile. If you are satisfied with the online dating profile you currently have, edit a few words here and there. Your profile will become refreshed and chances are will show up higher in a search.

If you are looking for some online dating sites to choose from, visit our Dating Community for some that I recommend. If you are ready for a new look, check out IRRESISTIBLE Profiles to help you stand out in the crowded playing field.

Happy New Year and all the best for 2010.
