|What women view online dating as..|
When men are searching personal ads, a vast majority are just seeing what's out there. Many are married, some in serious relationships, and others want to see if they "still got it." Women are looking for a potential partner. Not that the odds are not in women's favour, but I truly think there is a better pool of eligible women in comparison to men. I can think of five things men do wrong in their profiles. Let's start with the first. The picture.
- Don't wear sunglasses, women like to look at a man's eyes. Ever hear that eyes are the windows to the soul? You look shady as hell wearing sunglasses to attract someone! It's borderline douchey too.
- Don't take have a female, your dog, a bass fish, your mom, sister, friend in the frame at all. No matter who she is, it's going to be seen as deceit or demented. What single guy takes a picture with his sister and uses it for a dating profile? Why do you need your dog, or a fish to show you are mufti-faceted? Save something to talk about later. When you have to say which one you are in the photo, you are rolling the dice. What if she fancies your friend more than you?
- Smile and make sure it's a head shot. When you are so far back that you have to squint, it's easier to just move to the next profile. It's all about appearance at this point. What you put out is what you attract.
- No d*ck pics! No "send me a pic" either. You want a one night stand, there are places for that, don't waste someone's time if you just want someone to get you off. It's also low class so just find a one night stand on a site for that. Don't ever, ever, ask for a woman to send you a provocative photo. Why should she? No one knows who you are so why should she send you a picture of her goods? Maybe if you're "insert celebrity here" she might, but your Joe Citizen from the personals. Delete!
- If you think a girl is attractive, has potential or is somewhat interesting, initiate contact. Don't simply add her to your favourites, wink, or send one or two words "hey." Act like you would if she were on the train, or you saw her in person and compliment her.
