Play By The Rules For Success With Dating Online

Dating online is a big craze today. This is because it is easy, lots of fun and brings you in touch with loads of wonderful people. There are many wonderful stories about people who found their soul mates on the Internet which are inspiring. 

You could find your partner too. You need to keep in mind only one thing - there is a big difference between dating rules in real life and dating online.  

Knowing The Rules Makes All The Difference 

There are millions of members signed with dating online sites looking for a life partner. Though everyone could get theirs, some fail miserably while some succeed in no time. What makes this difference? Playing the game by the rules: 

Rule no 1 - the three Fs - Flatter, Flirt, Focus - you need to first flatter your friend online closely following what is written in his/ her profile. As you get to know him/ her better get into light flirting.

Ensure you do not use any sexual remarks or innuendos, which would cheapen the message. Lastly, focus on one or two traits that you find common and develop a dialogue around it.

Rule no 2 - sex is not something you want to talk in the first few messages.

This usually indicates that the person is not serious about a relationship, but looks only for physical intimacy, which might not be the actual reason why people are enlisting with online dating sites.

Let this come up naturally, once you know the person better and the discussion drifts that way.

Rule no 3 - no lying. It is very tempting to inflate your profile so you would look like Ms Perfect or Mr Professional. However, this would hurt you bad if you really get to like the person with whom you are corresponding and chatting.

That person would fall in love with the image you are creating - and that image is false. Hence, when the time comes to meet and know about you - you would either have to tell the truth about the previous lies or cut a very sorry figure when you are caught.

Either way, the relationship would be sacrificed.

Rule no 4 - always have a single photo (more if you can) posted on your profile. Reports show that people with photographs get 80% of the answers. Remember two sub-rules here:

a. Recent photographs - The photo should be recent (not older than 6 months), color and clear (sharp). Do not use photographs where you wear caps, sun glasses or too much make-up. Look for something casual, yet flattering.

b. Accurate photographs - abstain from having the photographs touched up. Remember, if things go right, you would meet the person and then what? Let them know you as you really are.

c. Single photographs - do not use group photographs. That confuses the person about identifying you and at the same time distracts attention.

Rule No 5 - use dynamic words about yourself and make your profile come alive with enthusiasm. Do not be negative about yourself, relationships or the opposite gender. No one like a complaint box. You want to attract, project a sunny disposition.
