It’s supposed to happen quickly. You should be able to join a dating site, shoot out a few winks, follow them up with some emails and in no time at all find yourself sipping cocktails with someone who makes you go “hmm, I like the look of them…”
In practice though, it’s never that simple. Online dating is exactly like offline dating… but with a greater number of people and a wider variety of options. You still have to put in effort. You still have to look the part. You still have to smile, dress up and make people laugh.
But online, you have to do it all before you even meet.
That’s the part that dating sites tend to neglect. They assume you know that dating is all about first impressions, looks and personality.
But they also assume you know how to express those things online.
The truth is that making a good first impression across the Web requires some very special skills.
It requires a photograph that doesn’t just show you, but one that shows you at your best. Your features have to be clear, your look has to be appealing and your appearance has to be relaxed and inviting. A snapshot won’t cut it — any more than wearing jogging pants and a t-shirt will cut it at a party — and neither will an old vacation photo. It’s possible that you might have a good, usable photograph stashed away somewhere on your hard drive but in general few people do have one. They just have photos that make do.
That’s the difference between meeting someone wearing the first thing you picked up off the bedroom floor, and meeting someone wearing your best outfit, while feeling confident and relaxed.
It’s the difference between being just another fuzzy-looking online single and being clearly an attractive partner and an excellent date.
It’s the difference between spending months writing emails or waiting for responses, and receiving plenty of replies and dates as early as this weekend.
