Additionally, online dating is less competitive than the bar/club scene.
With that said, you still need to put thought into how you are going to connect with someone online.
Or are you sending a lot of messages out into the void, never to be heard from again? Much like in real life, the only reaction that really infuriates is reaction.
And over the past three years, I’ve taken my passion for testing optimization and applied it to my dating life. I don’t know what it is, but so many online dating websites (outside of a swiping app like a Tinder) have the most important sections at the bottom of the profile.
This used to be embarrassing…until I found things that worked and things that didn’t, which made online dating less about the guesswork and more about science. On a typical Friday night, you’ll find me out having dinner and drinks with friends…but I also love to stay in and enjoy my shows on Netflix with a craft beer in hand. The bottom section might be titled something like “Message Me If…” Do not, I repeat, do not put any important information in that section.
Without adequate password protection, a scammer may even steal your email address and get access to other information you may have stored in your inbox.
Another important tip to keep in mind is that you should probably have different passwords for your email address and your online dating account.
The best way to spark interest is by sending him/her an email.
