online dating tips for womenCurrently there are over 40 million men and women in North America searching online and dating sites for the right person to spend the rest of their lives with.  With online dating becoming the norm, you’d be doing yourself a great disservice to not find out what you can do to make the most of your experience. There are many dos and don’ts with dating online.  But don’t let your fear of the unknown deter you from finding a good man and true happiness.  By taking advantage of all the dating apps and sites online that single men are visiting to find you, your chances of succeeding in the greatest numbers game on earth are well, pretty darn good.  These 25 online dating tips for women will help you do just that.

Be positive…

Forget any hang-ups you have about online dating and don’t believe the naysayers. You want to meet someone special and online dating opens you up to more singles than any bar ever could. Stay positive and enthusiastic to make the most out of it.

Use free dating sites…

Free dating sites may not offer the fancy questionnaires that are supposed to find you the perfect match, but that doesn’t make your chances of finding love any less. As a matter of fact, the popular free online dating sites tend to have far more members to choose from which increase your chances of finding love. Besides, who doesn’t want to save money??

Include a body shot…

Profiles with pictures get considerably more views and those with full body pictures get over 200% more views. At the end of the day anyone you meet will see what you look like from the neck down, so just go ahead and include a full body pic in your profile already.

Use a recent profile picture…

Don’t mislead potential dates with a picture of what you looked like ten years ago. You won’t be fooling anyone if you move onto Skype or a meeting in person. Your picture should be very recent and look like you do right now.

Include multiple photos…

Men are visual creatures and respond best to profiles with a few photos. Aiming for 4 or 5 is a good number because it gives them a good idea of what they can expect.

Be honest…

Along with posting a current picture, your profile should also be honest. Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not and don’t even bother to lie about your age or anything else if you’re serious about finding something genuine.

Keep it classy, not trashy…

Yes, you want to entice men to click on your profile and contact you and a certain degree of sex appeal in a profile might help. Just remember there’s a fine line between sexy and trashy when choosing your pics or your words.

Don’t let your type get in the way…

Having standards is important, but limiting yourself to a type isn’t. Opening yourself up to giving other types of guys a chance is exciting and ups your chances of finding Mr. Right. Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t always equal a perfect match, so date outside the box and you just might surprise yourself.

Write a genuine profile greeting…

Refrain from copying someone else’s profile just because you think it’s more clever than anything you can come up with and don’t write things that you think men want to read. Make it genuine and sincere and a perfect reflection of you.

Watch your wording…

Instead of lying about your body type or anything else for that matter, use words that show you in a positive light. Are you overweight? Use words like voluptuous or full-figured. Be honest, own yourself and who you are, and don’t use words that are negative or self-bashing.

Be clear about what you want…

Whether you want a long-term relationship or a casual fling, be sure to be honest about what you want to avoid leading anyone on or wasting your time or someone else’s.

Make your profile stand out…

You can do this by following the tips above as well as making it lighthearted and engaging. Would you want to click on your profile? The answer should be yes!

Choose the right category…

Online dating sites offer categories that cater to different dating preferences, like casual or long-term. Choose the one that applies to what you’re after to help you weed out guys who aren’t open to the same thing.

Don’t share personal information…

This may be the most important of all online dating tips for women because safety should always come first. Don’t share details like where you work or live, or your home telephone number, or any other detail that someone can use to track you down.

Meet in a public place…

Choose a public place when meeting someone for the first time, and even the second and third time. Chatting for hours doesn’t make him any less a stranger, so take your own car and avoid being alone with him no matter how harmless he may be. Safety first!

Have fun…

Whether text messaging, talking on the phone, or meeting in person; having fun is a must! The experience should be enjoyable and even those online dates that don’t work out can teach you something or at the very least give you some funny fodder for drinks with your girlfriends! And, having fun makes you more attractive to others which increases your chances of getting the man you want.

Take things offline sooner rather than later…

After a couple of chats, move to a telephone conversation. If things go well on the phone and you appear to be on the same page, it’s time to make plans to meet. This helps you weed out the time wasters.

Be respectful…

This is a must online and in person. You should always treat someone with the respect you expect in return, even if the date doesn’t go as you’d hoped.

Don’t settle…

Some women get so hung up on finding someone that they end up settling for less than they want or deserve all in the name of being part of a couple. If there’s no chemistry or he doesn’t seem as into you as you are into him, then move on.

Don’t be needy…

Your life doesn’t depend on a man liking you or calling you back, so don’t act like it. Keep your calls and texts to a minimum and don’t chase after him to make plans. You won’t have to chase a guy that wants you.

Be honest if you’re not into him…

It’s not easy when he’s sitting right there in front of you, but if you meet someone and don’t click, then you need to be honest.

Go with your gut…

If your gut is telling you that something is off, then listen to it. Don’t underestimate your own instincts.

Beware the married guy…

You’re bound to come across a man or two who have profiles and are looking for dates even though they have a girlfriend or wife at home. If he’s hard or impossible to reach; texts more than he calls; or can only make plans on weekdays, then he’s probably taken.

Put your best self forward…

This is a must in your profile, when you connect, and when you meet. Look good and feel good and you’ll be irresistible!

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket…

Expand your horizons and make the most of the process by meeting lots of men. If you meet one in person that turns out to be great, then by all means see where things can go. Until then, enjoy meeting different men and the quest for Mr. Right.

To sum it up…

Remember that online dating for women is growing by leaps and bounds so the odds that you will be able to find a good man who will provide you with everything you require in your life are very good.  The fastest demographic area for dating online is seniors over 55. More and more adults that have been single for a long time or recently divorced are trying their best to find a mate online.

Don’t rush in to online dating without taking some precautions, but don’t let your fears dissuade you from taking a chance when that chance could bring you joy and happiness.

Very well said. I have enjoyed online dating for some time now. At first I went into it a little nervous and worried that I would only meet men who were crooks or just looking for sex. That was not the case however and I continue to enjoy the benefits of being able to pick and choose from the many older men that also partake in the online dating scene.

Patsy, glad you liked the article. Nothing wrong with being nervous when trying something out for the first time as that is what keeps us on our toes and makes us decide with proper information instead of using our emotions. Dating online is great for offering many options that wouldn’t otherwise be available in other dating venues.
