Do Online Dating Websites Make Me Desperate And Pathetic?

Twenty years ago, online dating websites were looked upon as lame, desperate, and a little bit creepy. Now a days, it’s one of the most popular and successful ways people find love. Although, it can be a bit tricky to decide exactly which website is right for you, and what type of image you want to create for yourself in your profile.

First of all, choosing the website will mainly just be what your preference is. Each website mainly offers the same type of thing, but sometimes they appeal to different ages, genders, interests, etc. Here is a good website that shows you a couple online dating services and a little about each of them. This website will hopefully make your choice a bit easier.

The next step is making your profile and choosing the image you want to portray. See, you will find people everywhere, no matter which website you’re on, exaggerating like crazy on their profiles. They lie, use a younger picture of themselves, and say they’re interested in things that they think their ideal partner may be looking for. Yeah, don’t do that. THAT is lame, desperate,  and pathetic. In your profile, be truthful. For example, men tend to lie most about their age, height, and income. Women tend to lie more about their weight, physical build, and age. You wouldn’t want to be lied to, so why do it to someone else?

Now I’m not saying you should write about every ticket you’ve received and every bad habit you possess, but your goal should be that if someone were to look at your profile, they would get a tiny glimpse of the real you. If your goal is to find someone to spend the rest of your life with, you want them to fall in love with you, not someone you wish you were.

Another tip for your profile, always put a picture. It doesn’t matter if you think you’re overweight, unattractive, etc, profiles with pictures get almost 100% more hits than those without. Cause let’s just be honest, it’s a bit sketch when you see a profile with no picture. It could really be absolutely anyone at that point.

Now, if you’re still having trouble making your profile just how you want it, check out this video that explains to you exactly what you should and should not have in your personal profile.

Now if after all of these tips and advice, you’re still not successful in the online dating world, then maybe you’re better off sticking to face to face interactions. Either way, you’ll find that special someone, so have fun and good luck doing it!
