Online Dating Tips for the Summer

Sometimes people on online dating sites get stuck in a rut. Then they keep doing the same thing over and ove while expecting a different result, which is often described as the definition of insanity. It doesn't matter whether you're using Match.com, Okcupid, or Tinder - if you're not getting results, you need to consider what changes you can make. I recently read an article on Bustle that provides some dating tips for the summer. I really liked the article and suggest you give it a read. Some of the tips I liked best are discussed below.

 

1. Changing your profile picture often.
Don't let your profile go stale. If you change your profile, someone who may have passed over your profile in the past may decide to take a look. It also shows that you are engaged and active. I have tried this tactic myself and gotten better results with it. Remember, you have your phone with you wherever you go, so you might as well take pictures of yourself whenever you're in a new, interesting environment and post them not just on social media, but your dating profile as well.

 

2. Being Silly.
I liked this advice since I know many people tend to take online dating too seriously. While the article suggests incorporating silly pictures as a way to break the ice, I think it's okay to be a bit tongue-in-cheek when you're first communicating with people as well. This can be refreshing to many and will make you stand out.

 

As you can see, the gist of the article is that you should find a way to get out of your box. Changing things up is an excellent way of getting new or different results. Of course, if you haven't tried online dating at all, now is a great time to start. There was a time, years ago, when there weren't a lot of people on dating sites. This is no longer the case, and you will find an abundance of highly attractive, accomplished individuals using online dating sites. It's understandable if you have cold feet, but the perfect way to try out online dating is by using a free trial offer from Match.com. The current trial period is three days, which should at least give you a general notion of whether or not the site is the right one for you. If not, don't despair as there are plenty of other dating sites you can try.
