5 Ways to Meet Someone Online for Valentine’s Day
How to ramp up your search in 5 easy steps
Now that February is here, if you’re finding yourself dateless on the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, there’s no need to fret. With over 116 million singles worldwide searching for love online, it’s time to join the digital party and let your profile rise to the top. Assuming you’ve already dipped a toe in cyberspace, try these 5 simple tricks to spice up your profile and have yourself a date in time for Valentine’s.
1. Refresh and Socialize Your Profile. It’s time to take inventory of your existing profile and become a social dater. If your status updates are good enough for Facebook, they should be added in rotation to your online dating profile. Toss the blurry photos and the one’s with your friend’s arm hanging over your shoulder in the trash bin and change your primary profile photo. Yes, we need truth-in-advertising, so make sure the pictures are current. Did you add some recent activity shots to your Facebook profile? Grab the best-of-the-best and upload them to your dating profile. Cut down the word count to a simple paragraph and change the order of a few sentences and watch your profile move towards the top.
2. Don’t Wait. Initiate. So you want Mr. Right to just magically find you so you can ride off into the sunset together. But that wink, flirt or nudge from your biggest competitor caught his attention during his busy workday, so his email never ended up in your Inbox. My suggestion? Go ahead and contact 5 guys every day from now through Valentine’s. You’ll boost up their ego and have a greater chance of filling up your date card. So when you get 5 new daily matches in your inbox or see who’s hot listed you, don’t click delete and send these eligible bachelors into Internet Heaven.
