Online dating can be a scary place, especially as a woman. You’re not looking for just anyone, you’re looking for someone who will love and respect you. But with all the options out there, where do you begin? That’s where I come in! I’ve been online dating since the early 2000s (yes, that is an actual sentence), and I’m here to guide you through your journey. Here are some tips to get started:
Do some research.
- Look at other people’s profiles. If you’re looking for a job, it would be helpful to read up on the industry and see what kind of skills are in demand. If you’re dating, take a look at other people’s profiles to see what they’ve written about themselves and the type of person they’re looking for.
- Look at the profiles of people who are similar to you. If there’s something important missing from your own profile that might prevent someone from contacting you (like no photo), try filling that gap by looking at others’ profiles and seeing how they’ve handled similar situations–or ask friends or family members for advice on how best to present yourself online.
- Look at the profiles of people who are different than yourself: What do their photos look like? How long is their bio? Do their interests seem compatible with yours? The more information we have about ourselves and others alike, the better equipped we’ll be when deciding whether or not those potential matches could work out well together!
Make a list of what you really want in a partner.
You don’t want to waste time with someone who doesn’t meet your standards. So before you go on a date, make a list of what you really want in a partner.
