Online Dating Tips for Regular DudesTuesday, December 3rd, 2013
Are there such things as online dating tips for men that actually work?
Hell yes there are, and the best thing is that 99% of guys never know what to do or say when online date so just these 4 tips alone are going to put you in front of the pack. Here they are:
Don’t listen to chicks
Most websites and videos online are written by bloggers, journalists and worst of all… women! Why the hell would you want to listen to a woman tell you what she thinks you should have on your profile…?
I mean seriously, c’mon. Sure, she might know what she wants and what she likes. At the end of the day, she is a woman and a woman is not a man… lol. Unless she spends her time scouring dating sites and picking up all sorts of hot women with a dudes profile then she is not the person you want to be learning from.
Here is what works… from a dude’s perspective, not a female journalist.
First impressions last
This is especially true online.
If your profile picture doesn’t get her wanting to delve deeper into your profile, then you are basically screwed from the start.
Look through your computer, Facebook and other social platforms and select five of your top photos, use those as your album pictures and then you need to use the best of those ones as your profile picture. Otherwise take a new one.
Your profile picture needs to attract the right girl. So, for instance, if you’re going for the whole getting married, girl of your dreams type then a picture of you having fun and smiling is usually a good choice, but if you’re looking to hook up with as many girls as possible, maybe a topless beach shot will do.
Whatever you do, make sure it’s interesting, attractive and make sure that it’s actually a picture about you and not some GQ models photo you swiped off of Google images!
Remember, you are not writing a resume and you are not writing your will. What that really means is that you don’t have to be over the top professional. You’re looking for a date, not a job. Some peoples writing online is so full of themselves it sounds like a frigging will and testament telling the reader all about their life and dreams and so on…
Your intro needs to grab her attention, set you apart from the rest and make her want to keep reading. That means nothing boring like “Hi, I’m Todd and I like to laugh” –try something like “Sorry, I don’t have a six pack, but there is more to me than this sentence…” or “I enjoy popping bubble wrap, do you?”
Take the team and read other dudes profiles and you will soon realize that 99% of them all sound the same, so just getting the edge at the start with a properly written profile intro is critical.
The most important thing EVER
Ask questions and get a dialogue going.
Obviously you are there to meet women so don’t just browse their profiles and send stupid messages like “damn baby girl you’re so fine, where do you live?”
Ask her about things you saw or read in her profile. For example, if she says she likes to travel, ask her where the last place she went was. Keep it short and sweet and learn to move on if she is not interested.
Just keep on going and don’t waste your time with girls that are looking for something else. For instance, don’t message or email if she says she is looking for a buff blonde haired dude and you’re a slightly overweight hairy Italian guy. You will only waste her time and yours.
