Having a Positive Attitude towards Online Dating

A refreshing attitude is sometimes just what you need to find that perfect partner so we wanted to kick off 2010 with a positive start and do what we do best…help people find that perfect partner. We have a few online dating resolutions for you to have a look at.  They are some simple steps towards a successful online dating relationship for 2010…..hope they come in handy!


Be dedicated to your online dating journey, we all know that it can be a slightly daunting idea if it is a new venture, but remember you are always less vulnerable on a online dating site then you are when you are out on a Friday night! With online dating you are always in control of the situation. Try not to do the normal New Year thing and start something that you don’t finish. Log onto your profile at least 3 days per week. Contact people, don’t just wait for them to come to you, have some fun with it, send out at least five e-mails a week and you will be very surprised what you get in return. Try going that one step further with your online journey and head out on a social dating event, like a speed dating evening. They are great fun and you never know who you may meet there. Find time for your new online fun, don’t make excuses as to why you can’t log on or why you can’t e-mail back that cute guy that contacted you last week. Your not to busy, you do have the time and if you don’t you never know what might be passing you by.

Promote Yourself

Put yourself out there, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain! Some people may find it hard to free themselves from modesty and have a little boast, but there are many ways around this. Get some friends to help you out, ask them what they like about you and what they feel your best features are. Any compliment you have ever had, throw that into the mix. The more you add to your profile, the higher your chances are of finding that perfect partner, the more you put out there about what you want the more likely to are to meet Mr or Mrs right.

Open – Minded

Going into online dating with an open mind is the best thing you can possible do to come out with successful results. Don’t start writing people off straight away, give them a chance. Try not to pick at small little things, as more than likely they will not become an issue in the long run, its often just an excuse people tell themselves. Expand your options as to what you want from your online experience. Don’t think too much about a first date, fingers crossed it will go somewhere but it may not, take it in your stride and think about it as just two people having a meeting and not a romantic rendezvous this will take a bit of the pressure of you, and if it doesn’t work out it can help you in defining what you are looking for in a partner. Perhaps get a friend to pick out a hotty for you, it may be someone you over looked.

Stay Motivated

Online dating is very satisfying but at times it can also be slightly frustrating. You may need to remind yourself why you are doing it and what you want out of it. The positives will definitely outweigh the negatives you just need to stay motivated and focus on all the positives that you have got out of the site such as all the great first dates you have and that really nice e-mail you got from that stunning girl. The more motivated you are towards your online profile the better outcomes you will have, a positive attitude = a happy heart 🙂

It’s not always easy to keep your resolutions but the secret is to take baby steps. Not everything will happen at once, you need to have patience. It is hard sometimes, especially when the results are not necessarily immediate, but when they do come they will be great and definitely worth waiting for! Good luck with your new online venture, I hope some of these points have helped.
