Proof that online dating works
Most grown-ups have a history of exes, hang-ups and maybe a nervous breakdown or two. They know that you have a past, but they don’t want to hear about it. Some online dating profiles read like shopping lists.They’re looking for someone with brown eyes, short hair, between 5’10” and 6′, from west London, and so on. First, they make the writer sound like a control freak.In the last 10 years or so, a new solution has arrived to help lonely hearts find their soul mates: online dating.
Specific information does more than make you sound interesting – it also gives potential dates something to write to you about.
See it all as experience, not as proof that you’re a loser (or that everyone else is a loser).
Learn from your bad and boring dates and try again.
You do this by being original and, above all, specific about your interests.
Instead of saying that you like sunsets, mention the best sunset you’ve ever seen.
