Thinking about joining an online dating service? Which
is best? How do you use dating services online to get the
best out of them? This article offers some advice.
There are many dating services online out there. Some of
these internet dating service sites are outstanding, others
less so. Without any more ado let me tell you right away which
I think is the best. It's an easy choice: PenPalsPlanet.com
Dating Services. Both for its insistence on protecting
your email address from spammers and its policy of NOT renewing
More on PenPalsPlanet in a minute. First let's take a step
back... Perhaps you are hesitant about joining an online dating
service at all? Reputable online dating services are places
where perfectly normal people who lead busy lives, people
who are dealing with shyness issues or people who are hoping
to expand their social horizons gather to meet and chat with
one another. In our internet age what could be more natural?
But which online dating service will you join? You must
think carefully about this, don't just go with my recommendation
- not until you are sure. Your decision about which is best
for you can be based on criteria you set for yourself. You
must decide what you want from the experience.
Are you looking for a life-long partner? Or are you looking
for fun online? Or perhaps you would like to meet new online
friends or find pen pals in different places in the internet
world. There are a whole range of possibilities. The larger
and higher profile dating services have more features but
are mainly geared to dating personals of a general kind. They
also have international memberships so if you are looking
for someone in your immediate area, this could be difficult
if you live in a region or country which is poorly represented
in the online dating personals. However, PenPalsPlanet
Dating Services has so many members - millions,
in fact - that you are less likely to encounter this problem
Whatever the case, you would be well advised to join a paid-for
online dating service. There are free ones of course, but
you will have heard the old saying, “You get what you pay
for”. It certainly applies here. PenPalsPlanet
allows you the best of both worlds. You can try out the dating
service for free, then upgrade if and when you feel comfortable.
When you have made your decision and joined an online internet
dating service you will next need to write your profile. This
will be your advert telling the world that you are available
for dating, of for friendship. Online dating can work well
if you follow a few simple guidelines when writing your profile.
The key element in writing an online dating profile is to
be honest. There really is no point in lying about how old
you are, about how you earn your living, or about your weight
or height. If you meet someone at a dating service that you
really like and you have lied about yourself it will soon
become ovbvious to the other person.
You will also need to write an online dating profile that
will help you to stand out from the crowd. So, be inventive,
be lively, even a little off-beat, but most importantly be
absolutely honest about yourself. Spelling and grammar are
important too. Use humour, but you should never sound desperate.
That will put off potential dates. Most online dating services
expect you to write a short header above your profile. Use
it wisely. Check out some existing examples of what people
have written by doing a search at the online dating personals
Dating Service. Which ones attract you to click
on them and which ones get lost in the crowd?
The header of your online dating profile should be used
to communicate whatever your main objective in using online
dating is, anything that is vital to your criteria for a date
or that will get attention by being funny or clever.
Now you should be all set to make the most of your online
dating service. Think carefully about the points made here
and you should have a good and positive online dating experience.
