One in a Million: How to Stand Out in the Online Dating World

These days, most people will find a date online. On the one hand, this is certainly good news for you as you can widen your dating pool considerably. At the same time, it does mean that you do have more competition to contend with.

So, how can you make sure that you stand out against the hundreds, perhaps thousands of other people who are also on dating sites? Well, the answer may be easier than you think…

Find an Appropriate Site for You

Now, it doesn’t matter if you have the most perfect dating profile in the world if you are on the wrong dating site! If you find yourself stuck in the wrong place, then none of your tactics is actually going to work. This is why the first thing that you should do is register with a site that is actually suitable for you.

To do this, first, consider your intentions. Do you want to meet interesting people and have some fun along the way? In this case, will be right up your alley. So, make sure that you stick with a site like that if you are open to such encounters.

Work on Your Photos

As you can imagine, photos are key when it comes to online dating. After all, your potential matches have no idea what you look like – they simply have to go according to your pictures. This is why it is so important for you to select the right photos.

First of all, make sure that they are clear. If your images seem blurry in any way, then they – and you – will come off as seeming suspicious. Thus, you may be considered a fake profile. Furthermore, the very first image should show your face clearly so that people can get a good idea of what you look like.

In the images after this, select pictures that depict your passions, hobbies, or lifestyle. Pictures are worth a thousand words and will often provide better insight into who you are than a bio.

Craft Your Bio-Well

Of course, this doesn’t mean that your bio isn’t important – it is. In many instances, it is the bio portion that will help a potential match to decide whether or not they actually want to talk to you. Therefore, you are going to have to make it good.

Unfortunately, most people have no idea what to write in this section. Now, it doesn’t have to sound like poetry, but your bio should be smooth. In short, it needs to convince people to either match up with you or talk to you.

Due to this, you need to avoid clichés at all costs – using worn-out lines is just going to cause you to blend in with all the others. To avoid this be funny, upbeat, and above all, honest. Don’t use buzzwords, but rather sound like a genuine person.

Get Conversations Started on the Right Foot

Now, matches are only the first step. If you really want to stand out, you are going to need to figure out your chat situation. This is where most people fail. For the most part, this is because online etiquette is still not all that well-defined.

One way to overcome this awkwardness is to imagine that you are having a face-to-face conversation with your match. What would you say to get them hooked? What would you say to keep the conversation going? How would you ensure that they will want to talk to you again? This tactic could help you immensely.

These are all the ways that you can stand out in the online dating world. Thus, if this is something that you want to do, you now have all of the tools of the trade at your disposal.
