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…

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

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!

What allows us to take great dating headshots

Here’s a rather Silly video that was recorded for us just for fun- Hope it makes you smile

So what is LookBetterOnline? What makes us different from every other photographer? How can we take the best dating headshots, and why is this relevant to you anyway?

Well I’m asked so many times that I thought I’d write 10 about our unique flavor here at LookBetterOnline, which will hopefully give you a few tips too!

#1 we ONLY hire the best people

…I hire only about 1 in 20 photographers…this is so important, with the best photographers minimal retouching is needed and we get great dating headshots, and we only pick people who are friendly and approachable~ No one likes to work with a moody-artist no matter how good they may think they are!

#2 We Take the time needed

I recently did a review of how much time photographers take when they create great dating headshots, now I was amazed many people take just 20-40 minutes maximum, our photographers take 45-90 minutes on shoots…to take less is to rush people-trust me on this one, it takes a little while for almost everyone to relax and almost all the work I’ve seen done quickly shows it! So make sure you have the time- You’re worth it!

#3We only give you the best dating headshots

…OK so what do I mean by this, well in the course of a photo session any normal photographer will take 2-300 photos, now some photographers will tell you that all 300 are worth having, in 99.9% of all cases this just isn’t true, from literally hundreds of pictures we choose just the 12, 18 or 24 pictures that you’ll need…and trust me again, you don’t need more than these!

4#Relaxed yet quality…not “glamor

dating headshots”, a glamour shot is not about The Real You, it’s about the photographer creating the image that they find the most pleasing. The photographer will use heavy makeup, hair styling, unnatural lighting and heavy post production retouching.

The result is a fantasy image, and it fails for online dating headshots on dating sites. People avoid them because they know no one looks like that, or they avoid you after the date because you didn’t measure up to the picture on the profile. LookBetterOnline photographers are trained to stay away from this style of photography. They take natural pictures that reflect who you really are.

When They Have nice online dating photos But Something Doesn’t Feel Quite Right (Part 2)

In the last post I mentioned that regardless of how nice online dating photos can be you might come across two different kinds of deception online: the more common truthful economies that exaggerate positive qualities such as youth or wealth at the expense of complete honesty; and the total lies that obscure a character that likes to stalk, harass or otherwise make life miserable for their unfortunate victim.

When you come across the first type—and there’s a fair chance that you will come across the first type online, just as you’ll come across milder forms offline too—you can decide what you want to do. If you’re dealing with just a mild little exaggeration you might be willing to forgive them their trespasses (just as you might be hoping that people will forgive you yours).

But if you get the feeling that the person you’re dealing with is even close to being on the dangerous side, the best thing to do is cut them out quickly.

Just about all online dating sites allow you to block emails from members who are bothering you. Add them to your blocked list and if you’ve managed to keep your identity details secret, that should be the last you hear from them.
Don’t even think twice about it. With millions of people searching for singles online, with such a huge reservoir of people to choose from, there’s absolutely no reason for you to take any risks at all on the Internet even if people have great online dating photos The dangers are just too great and the alternatives too many for you to bother with them.

The moment you see even the slightest hint of a red flag waving, cut, run and move on to the next likely prospect. There are far too many fish in the sea for you to waste your time and your safety swimming with the sharks.

Millions of people have used online dating sites without ever coming across the slightest hint of danger, risk or deception. If you do see a flag, it’s more likely to be the light pink of a couple of years shaved off a birth date than the throbbing red of a Glenn Close looking for a victim. While it’s perfectly possible—and even easy—for someone to misrepresent their qualifications online, it’s no less easy for you to protect yourself from any danger and look for someone more honest.

To keep safe online, and to protect yourself from nasty surprises such as lying Lotharios and deceptive divas, you’ll need little more than common sense and a sensitive nose for the whiff of deceit.

When They Have great online dating photos But Something just Doesn’t Feel Right…

On the Internet, it pays to be suspicious. So what do you do when the online dating photos look good but something just doesn’t feel right?

When online dating, the vast majority of the people you meet will be as honest, direct and truthful — like the people you meet offline. It’s unlikely that you’ll come across many angels who will lay out their entire life histories, warts and all, right at the beginning, but it’s also very unlikely that you’ll be unfortunate enough to come across any axe-wielding psychopaths, stalkers or dogs pretending to be people.
The vast majority of fibs you encounter on dating sites tend to concern age, weight, income and of course photo, with ten-year-old graduation photos passing as up-to-date cool online dating photos.
That’s certainly bad enough but it’s not a threat and you can decide, when you uncover the real story, whether the truth has been stretched beyond the bounds of forgiveness.

You can get a feel for when someone’s lying online

Even if you can’t see the way they behave when they’re spinning you a story and you can’t hear in their voice that not even they believe what they’re saying. It’s hard to keep a story straight and there are often little inconsistencies the tell you that something isn’t quite right. If someone born in 1974 for example, talks about having been in their current job for twelve years and their previous job for fifteen, then that should set alarm bells ringing. If a potential date who claims on their profile never to have been married mentions a stay with ex-in-laws, that should raise a red flag. And if someone says they don’t like spending time with the police that should send out a serious warning.

These are exactly the kind of tell-tale signs that tell you that something isn’t quite right. And when you get those signs, it doesn’t matter if he or she has cool online dating photos, it’s always a good idea to trust your instincts.
