Like most I was a bit fooled into believing that I’d just come on to the net, find a site, log on and have pretty girls bouncing into my email as well as onto my lap. OK, maybe that was just wishful thinking.
I did find the site though, a truly great free dating site called, Passionsearch.com, with lots of people on it and great facilities to hookup with girls. But as soon as I started learning the ropes, I found out there was more to this online dating thing than I thought.
A thing of two about personals:
How we write them, where we post them, how we respond to people who contact us because of them, our online dating personals truly do matter. You can be on a site like Passionsearch, the only dating site I will ever be a member of, one that serves me too well I can’t even really describe it, but still if your online profile sucks, well you must suck! Sure you might get lucky and gets hits, but I am living proof that until I took the time to consider the words I was using, the how’s and why’s of posting and I had a few good ice breakers ready for those first hello emails from girls who read my personal or I knew how to read other personals even, I was just one of the many on passionsearch.
Every site has its tools and a good dating site like passionsearch has many but I needed to take some time in the trenches of figuring out what I wanted my online personal to say, to determine if I wanted to post more than one, constantly update or even what picture I wanted with it.
Online dating is about learning and if you are lucky enough to get on a great online dating site you can learn plenty. But you have to build your net dating acumen from the ground up with the basics and learning about personals is basic.
