4 Tips on how to spot a cheater on a dating website!

A few Mr. Wrong’s

Online dating can be the perfect way to meet Mr. Right. Yet there are a few Mr. Wrong’s out there who signed up for the online dating thing as a way of cheating on their wives.

No why these men don’t just register on AshleyMadison.com is beyond me, I guess it’s because they don’t know this website exists! (For those of you that don’t know what AshleyMadison.com is, It’s a different kind of online dating website, their slogan is “LIFE IS SHORT. HAVE AN AFFAIR.” and as you can imagine they serve people who for whatever reason want to cheat, and as its 100% confidential nobody will ever know except for the people they cheat with

4 tell-tale signs

So how do you avoid meeting a married man online who may have slipped off his wedding ring? Here’s 4 tell-tale signs (apart from a wedding band tan line around his ring finger).

Cheater sign 1: No picture or pictures with dark glasses.

Cheaters simply don’t want a picture of themselves online for the world to see, they are afraid that they’ll be seen by someone who knows them and get caught! If he tells you that he’s afraid of postinghis picture online for security reasons, or offers to email a picture of himself to you it then see this as a HUGE red flag

Cheater sign 2: Phone calls at odd times.

Cheaters often have family lives and obligations to their wives and children so won’t be as available as genuine singles. If he calls you on his way back from work or arranges to go on a date during the week, and never seems to be available weekends then these are HUGE red flags, Ask yourself is he calling you on his lunch hour? Or late at night?

Cheater sign 3: No friends or family.

Nobody expects him to want you to meet his friends and family after just a couple of dates, yet most people will talk about friends and family, guys who cheat on their wives don’t want family or friends to know they are cheating, if he makes more than a couple of excuses of his family or friends being “out of town, then this is another HUGE red flag!

Cheater sign 4: Difficult to contact.

If you always leave a message when you call, and it’s days before he calls you back he may be more than just independent!

3 dating tips for EVERY women who’s EVER had a bad date! (And a very funny video too)

Ok so here’s the funny video watch it first to make you laugh,  then read the text below

Yes I know, your girlfriend probably told you to get a life, so you joined Match.com or eHarmony and after meeting sooooooo many people online and having met more than your fair share of men who just don’t interest you. You are “Burned out” with online dating and would rather spend your Saturday evenings alone with Ice-cream, a good bottle of wine and a movie than with the WRONG guy!

So firstly take a month off dating…spend time with friends, pets and alone, laugh about all the bad dates you had and see the funny side; (And also remember how bad it was at  the end of your last relationship, and how lucky you are to have escaped it!)

Here’s 3 things you can do to press the “Online Dating reset button” and make dating a positive experience once again!

  • Don’t think of it as dating. Most women put so much pressure on themselves and their date, DON’T!
    Think of this as an opportunity to meet a stranger, and enjoy learning about them, then you’ll not be needy and if there’s no chemistry you won’t be disappointed either
  • Get rid of the the “I hope he likes me” attitude. Never approach meeting men with the “I hope he likes me” feeling. Start with “I wonder if I’ll like him! This stops you from needy or trying to read his mind and helps you focus on whats important, how you feel when you are with him!
  • Stay Positive. It’s important to stay positive! avoid topics and questions that lead to negative conversations like “So how’s the online dating thing going for you?” Talk about things that you both like…it’s not that hard, and don’t be a bore work is off topic for the first date!

2 tips to help you write a better online dating profile

Here’s a standard online dating profile example!

“I’m not good at writing about myself but my friends say I’m adventurous, funny, romantic, I live life to the max and I’m career driven. I am looking to meet someone who is attractive and intelligent”

Tip#1 Don’t be generic be specific

Ok I hear you saying, this isn’t so bad what’s wrong with this online dating profile?…and at first glance this looks like part of an articulate and well written profile, written by a person who knows what they want; However this kind of dating profile is often skipped over! And this is because it’s Waaaaay too generic and average! There are literally millions of dating profiles just like this out there…there’s nothing “CATCHY” about this, nothing to make you stop and take notice (and maybe respond!)

Lets look at a more specific dating profile and see just how its more effective…

“I’m adventurous. My hobby is sailing. I have a fifteen-foot boat that I take out on the ocean most weekends. There’s room — and sail-work — enough for two and the views of the town from the sea are fantastic. If you’ve ever fancied taking a slow, very cramped, boat to China, I’m sure we could arrange something”

Tip#2 Don’t be a bore

“I went to school in the Europe, but now I work for a major financial company where I work up the corporate ladder”.

Ok, Ok, it is specific…but is this supposed to be an online dating profile or a resume or work presentation! At least if you feel compelled to say this say why you loved school in Europe, or why you want to be at the top of the corporate ladder…don’t be a bore.

A different approach

“I went to school in Oxford England, and loved studying Geography and Languages, I love to travel and my favorite trip was when I went to Borneo last summer”…

OR…“I work as a tax attorney but I try not to talk about work too often. Few people let me. The work is actually less boring than it sounds and there are times I even catch myself wide awake in the office. I promise not to discuss work on a first date (unless, of course, you insist.)”

Follow these tips and you’ll get better results dating online…

LookBetterOnline Book Review: “The Flirting bible” Fran Greene.

I’ve personally spoke to Fran Greene: She’s a delightful and authentic new Yorker, and she kindly offered to send me a copy of her book “The Flirting Bible”

I read the usual book blurb

“Nationally renowned relationship expert Fran Greene, former advice columnist for Match.com, will walk you through her thirteen tried-and-trusted techniques for becoming the most confident and attractive person in the room (no matter if you think you are or not!). You’ll learn how to…Bla bla bla.”

I was a little skeptical about how much value I’d find from this book, BOY was I wrong.

Fran really Knows her stuff and has presented her ideas with grace and simplicity in this book, the quality of this book is evident from the moment you start turning the pages and get to the first high quality photo!

The Flirting bible is a great book for reading body language, getting noticed and meeting people,

The Flirting bible is brilliant, easy to follow and most of all FUN to read, its colorful and FUN (Did I say fun twice, yes I did!)
Buy a copy and read it twice!

3 steps to finding the right online dating site!

Looking to date the perfect vegetarian? What about a sugar daddy to date or a big and beautiful woman?

Thanks to a crop of nicheonline  dating websites, you can find your ideal mate based on very specific criteria. Think: nerd dating, Christian dating, gun lovers dating or millionaire dating,~ the “Niches” are literally endless.

Online dating  is multi-billion dollar industry  with niche dating sites claiming increasingly claiming a large percentage of that business

So how do you Find the right dating website?

Step 1: Determine what you’re looking for

Determine what sort of relationship you are looking for before visiting ANY online dating site. Are you looking to find the woman you want to spend the rest of your life with, casual dating to ease you back into the dating game after your divorce? Or just fun with no strings
attached?

Ask yourself…“Is it critical that my partner and I share the same interests or culture?

Some people are open to meeting someone who has different interests or culture, some people aren’t. There’s no right or wrong way to do this! This is why there are dating websites that cater for everyone and sites that cater to each of these “niches”.

Step 2: Decide on your price range

There are excellent free online dating sites like Plenty of Fish out there and some people feel  that  people who pay for dating websites are more serious about finding love, either way, have an amount you are willing to spend (or not) in mind.

Step 3: Spend time reviewing dating sites

Create a list of online dating services to review. If you can’t think of where to look, start by typing into Google the requirements you previously determined, with the word ‘dating’ on the end. For instance, if you are interested in dog lovers, type in “dog lovers dating” and see what you get. And Google “best dating websites” and read some articles and reviews! (There are lots of websites like 100bestdatingsites that can help you choose the right site that fits best for you)

4 tips for great dating profile photos

Here’s 4 tips to follow if you want awesome profile pictures!

1: No group pictures with lots of people.

You may be the best friends in the world, but keep them out of your dating profile photos. Don’t make people work at working out which one is you in your profile picture – it’s a waste of time trying to figure who’s who in a group of friends!

2: Take the time to create a profile picture.

Don’t cut it out from a group picture, and definitely don’t remove an ex from the picture! And don’t use your driving license or passport picture!

3: Keep your face visible

no sunglasses, looking away or hat covering your face! Your picture is how people recognize you from all the other millions of people. (And while looking away from the camera may work if you’re in your teens or early twenties may be good advice to younger people-to look away and try to be moody in your late twenties or older looks posed and ridiculous).

4: Wear clothes you feel confident in

Wear an outfit which has got you the most compliments, and remember that when you feel confident you “project this” in your photos.

3 tips for Cute profile pictures

Most of us have looked at someone online and though “Cute profile pics” and we’ve all heard that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” but what exactly is beauty?

To some beauty is curvy, to others it is thin…

Some scientists say that we naturally find people cute or attractive who have symmetrical faces, A large body of work has been conducted relating symmetry to attractiveness, the theory says that if your face is symmetrical the it is an important indicator of freedom from disease, and worthiness for mating!

Take a look at this cute profile picture and tell me if you agree that symmetry is attractive?

OK, OK I admit, I used Photoshop!

To me mostly everyone is beautiful in their own way no matter what and everyone is totally and completely different! Which is great news, because if everyone were to be the same, it would be an extremely boring world

So, here’s some great tips on how to create cute profile pics and most importantly look and feel beautiful.

Tip 1 Smile:

Ok so some Online dating profile experts have told me that people shouldn’t smile for cute profile pics and I disagree (unless you are under 28 years old! See my blog post for more details http://tinyurl.com/7o6pc3d  ) Smile, feel good about yourself- think of something that made you laugh, and you’ll soon have the best smile ever! Then smile for the camera (even a small smile feels good and gives off good energy!, and people feel this energy)

Tip 2: Dress right

Wear clothing that you like (But find a friend who will honestly tell you if you look bad), we all have an honest (read blunt) friend who will tell us if we don’t look good, find a friend who has a sense of style and then get their opinion and remember, style doesn’t have to be the latest trend, and
“It’s better to wear last years’ clothes with this years’ confidence-than this years’ clothes with last years’ confidence”~ Just saying- Dress right and with confidence

Tip 3: Get enough sleep

I know this sounds simple and obvious, but I’m amazed at the number of people whose profile pictures look awful, yet it’s because they are tired! Get enough sleep. This will help you to look your best-no one looks cute with wrinkles their eyes!

And remember to believe you are beautiful! If you don’t think it, no one else will

First Date Secrets that Professional Photographers Have Known for Years

What secret have professional photographers known for years that will help you on a first date?

(Don’t bother actually asking a professional photographer this. He or she would just raise an eyebrow, keep their eye on the model and ask why you think they know any secrets to dating.)
But they do know a secret. It’s a secret so obvious that even professional photographers forget they know it!

Professional photographers know that you need to look good on a first date. Shhhhh, now don’t be telling everyone!

It sounds obvious, right? In fact, you’re probably thinking: “Hey, I know that!”

Well, maybe you do. But a lot of people — apparently — don’t. (And if you know one of them, then forward them a link to this blog. They need it!)

It’s obvious, sure. And yet, so many people miss it.

Remember, looking your best doesn’t end with a good profile pic! It’s essential on the date too.

Here are some tips that our professional photographers have given us to help people look good on a photo shoot. They apply for first dates too.

For men:

  • A dark blue or black dress shirt will usually work great.
  • Wearing a tie and a suit can be a bit much. Keep it dressy but casual.
  • No Hawaiian shirts.
  • No tight shirts unless you know for sure and have multiple female friends who agree that you look smoking hot in a tight shirt.
  • No busy, crazy patterns.

For women:

  • Dress sexy but not skanky.
  • Don’t show too much skin.
  • Avoid dress shirts—they make you look too “professional” and not “fun.”
  • No big or busy patterns.
  • Soft, dark V-necks look great.

Black always works; white hardly ever does.

Making the effort to look good is important. At the very least, it sends the message to your date they’re important. At the most, it makes the date important.

What Men want the most!

Whether online dating or offline, women often scratch their heads or roll their eyes and say to
each other that “Men confuse them and that they have no idea what a man is really looking for apart from sex”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay so what is a man looking for?

 

1: Looking for Love:

Firstly they are looking for love, yes love, now this may surprise a bunch of women, but men need to feel loved too (and yes the sex is important, very, very important) but I’m amazed at the amount of men who will stay in a sexless relationship because of love

2: Trust

Whether they are online dating or offline- just like women men are looking for a partner they can trust, who’s supportive, with a sense of humor, who won’t be a nag

3: Looks do matter

They are looking for a woman who looks good~ if you ask a guy and he says otherwise-he’s lying! But looks aren’t everything.

4: Family

As most men get older they eventually want to make a home.

5: Challenge

Most feel they want a woman who keeps them on their toes (although remember this means many different things to people!)

6: To feel like a man

But here’s the thing men want most, they want a woman who makes them feel like a man! Please reread this sentence at least 100 times!

Does online dating make you feel like a lonely dog left out in the rain?

Did you know that according to Match.com 1 in 5 couples who get married in the USA are met through online dating?

What if you’ve decided to join the ranks of all these people finding love online; You’ve got all excited and posted your profile; For the first month you got attention but now hardly any views

What if you’re not getting the results with online dating that you’d hoped for?

It can seem like no one is interested in you anymore and that each month you’re wasting your hard earned money paying subscriptions for online dating and you feel like a lonely dog left out in the rain!

So you decide to change a few words and phrases in you profile hoping that the process will get easier; You post your new updated dating profile and wait for the emails and winks to come rushing in, and  then nothing happens….that’s right nothing happens!

The problem is you changed the profile but your photos look the same!

We are all visual creatures here’s the way that it works when online dating:
STEP1: Man or woman sees picture they like
STEP2:  Man or woman clicks on picture and reads profile

Yes exactly like this, they see a picture they like and then click on it to find out more! if you’re not convinced about this then ask yourself, when was the last time you clicked on a dating profile picture or read a profile of someone you didn’t find attractive!

With online dating you must have good online dating photos to get people to even read your profile!

So many people have terrible profile pictures and when they don’t get results they blame the online dating website!, they say that online dating sites haven’t got the number of people they say they have (and truth be told, you have no way of knowing)

People with bad pictures often consider using another online dating site and posting their profile there, but the online dating photos are the very thing that prevents them from meeting more people.
If  you are not getting the results that you want with online dating then change your picture FIRST!
