Dating Tips: Ten Unspoken Rules of Online Dating

Trying to make things work in the online dating world is no easy task. And if you are a more mature person (40-60 years old) it can seem especially daunting. Fear not – if you follow these simple rules success is just around the corner.

There are two areas where online dating can go awry – the profile and the profile follow-up.

1. No Life Stories Please Your profile should tell a lot about you in not too many words. A novel-like profile will only bore people.  Make it short and sweet, just like you.

2. So, What Do You Like Doing? Use your profile to draw people in. While it’s important to tell your story it’s equally important to create an interesting and exciting view of what it would be like to spend time with you.

3. Leave The Negativity Behind You If you don’t like this or you don’t like that, it’s best to just leave that out of your profile. Put on a happy and positive face.

4. Family Values Make sure your family is part of your profile. This lets people know what’s important to you and sets the stage for a realistic get-together.

5. No Cleavage Required While this may be your best asset, showing it off will send a message you probably don’t intend to send.

6. Look Past Your First Impression Many high-quality people don’t photograph well, or craft well-written e-mail. Try not to eliminate potential matches too early. If there are qualities you like, follow up with a phone call. You might be pleasantly surprised.

7. Privacy First Most online daters don’t go past the second or third encounter. That is not meant to be discouraging, just realistic.  Your private information, such as where you live and your real e-mail is probably best kept for something serious. Get a separate Google e-mail and phone number just for dating.

8. Slow And Steady Wins The Race You’ve studied the profiles and examined the photos, and there he or she is. Perfection and then some. Slow down! You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain by taking your time and letting the relationship grow slowly.

9. Leave The Past Behind You It will be hard to do but not talking about your ex or his ex will go a long way toward letting you move on. That baggage has no place in your new life.

10. Step Into The Real World Real-world, offline events are a very good way to practice those skills you want to be able to use when you find the perfect one online. Get out there and meet people, it’ll go a long way toward finding the love of your life.

In this video tutorial, you will find 10 useful tips for keeping it real while you attempt to attract mates on the interwebs. While most of the advice and tips are aimed at men, a few also apply to women. You’ll know how to succeed at online dating.



So as you embark on a journey with online dating that will hopefully lead you to a happy ending of sorts, there are a few things that can help you along the way. Keep in mind what you’re looking for and never settle for anything less. Online dating can take you to exactly where you want to be if you let it.

Be Comfortable With Who You Are and What You Want

In order to find a good mate or enjoy a great first date, you need to be comfortable with who you are and what you are after. Take the time to think through what you put on your online dating profile. Be confident with what you have to offer and never apologize if it’s not a good match. Be forthcoming in the profile and in initial conversations with everyone you meet. If it’s not a match, then be straightforward about that because this is your journey and it should make you happy.

Go In Search of the Type of Person You Want and Don’t Compromise

Focus on any possible niches that could be a match for you. Try to talk to those who share the same interests, hobbies, or lifestyle that you have. Really try to focus your search and center it around the things that will make you happy. Though you may think that it’s a good idea to date a bunch of different people, do be a bit selective in your choices. Narrowing down the field a bit will help you to get a good match!

Remain In Control and Cater Things To The Way You Want Them To Be

It may be new to you to be in control over your love life but savor the opportunity. Don’t settle or compromise, particularly at the beginning. If it’s not a good match then kindly let the other person know that. Do have fun with dating and talk to several people to try to narrow things down a bit. In the end, however, you always want to cater things to the way you want and need them to be—this can be a whole new direction for you!

Have Fun with It and Enjoy Building a Good Foundation

Above all try to enjoy the online dating process because that’s when it works best. When you feel confident and are enjoying yourself that comes across really well to a potential suitor. This is an entirely different type of dating, and one that can work really well for you, so let yourself go and have fun as you work towards building a good foundation to move you forward in your dating life.
