I have started online dating and while looking though profiles I think I found some really good matches.
How should I break the ice with first message to them.
I am 20 yo btw, and these girls are in the 18-20 range as well.
I need help writing online dating profiles. I tend to be extremely detailed when writing profiles and I think it turns women away instead of attracting them. I am wondering how I can get feedback on how to write online profiles. Any help would be appreciated. It is best if it is from a female point of view.
I would say most of my dates (80-90%) come from online dating sites since it is more convenient (although I do not want to be dependent on it). However, some sites are riddled with spammers, so it definitely has it’s faults.
The traditional way of meeting people (face to face at parties, etc.) is still probably preferred.
What is your take on this? Which method do you prefer and what proportion of your dates come from online sites?
I am trying to find a free online dating site. Most of them offer free trials. I would appreciate your suggestions. Thanks.
PS: I need a 100% free dating site not dating sites offering trials.
Online dating can be tough for people if they aren’t considered attractive, especially for men since for women it can be like a kid in the candy shop. But if a man is short or ‘unattractive’, what can he do to be successful dating online or what are the best websites for him to have a chance?
What are some free online dating sites? Sites that are 100 percent free, does not even cost a penny?
Does anyone know of any good Online Dating sites that are literally 100 percent free, like you can send messages and read messages for free, you don’t have to use a Credit Card, I mean seriously, free, not even a penny. Like what are the Online Dating sites that have a good reputation and have a lost of users on it, and they are totally free, period.
With online dating sites becoming more and more popular, we thought that it would be a good service to review as many as possible.
A lot depends on the type of site you are looking to use. Just about every niche and fetish is covered these days and we will explore as many of them as possible over the next few weeks. We already have many links to adult sites embedded through out the site but have not as yet done a comprehensive review.
Today we look at a site called B2 that is aimed at the over 35′s. I find it strange that in the world of dating we can be placed into boxes like that. I get the principal of trying to look for people in your own age range but love does not compare ages.
That said this does look like an easy site to use and has access to a huge data-base of potential partners. The whole site is pleasing to the eye and they boast of a huge success rate among their clients. The front page is very simple but I think that works best. I should also mention that the site is based in the UK.
Sometimes simple is best and that appears to be what you get with this site. I think if you are 35 years old or over then this could be a great place to start looking for that perfect partner.
Most people use social media sites like Facebook to chat with old friends that no longer live near them. There is also a strong marketing presence on these sites now as well. However with so many groups and pages springing up, and the ease in which you can do this, it means that all sorts of interests are covered.
This includes dating groups ranging from adult meetings to lets hookup for a date type pages. It is now easier than ever to meet someone online. The perfect partner could be just around the corner or on the next page.
What once was looked on with suspicion has now turned into the norm, mainly because we all lead such active busy lives. This actually leaves us with less time to spend meeting genuine people with the same outlook or needs as ourselves.
Finding love, companionship, or even just sex is now easier than ever before.
It happens to the best of us. Communication is such a fickle thing, and the lines of communication can become blurred every so often, especially when love and feelings are involved. Even those who think that they are immune to the confusion of conflict can find themselves drawn into a communication breakdown when they least expect it, and chaos ensues.
Even those of us who are better equipped than many others are not immune. This happened to me on the weekend, and until to be quite honest, it took me by surprise. My spouse told me something that really hurt my feelings, and I automatically lashed back in defense.
It was a silly argument, over something as simple as a misplaced bottle of perfume. But to me, it represented something much deeper that had been simmering away for a couple of weeks. I get frustrated at having to search for something when it is not where I expect it to be, worse still when my partner has shifted it and I don’t know the first place to begin searching.
Perfume, needles and thread, car keys, a Tupperware container to store my baking soda in, covers for our outdoor chairs, all were examples of instances where I had to turn the house upside-down. A simple answer from my spouse when these things were shifted would have saved me a lot of time and frustration. And the answer I got? “You need to open your eyes and organize yourself better”
I was gutted. When I come home from work I exercise the dog and cook dinner so that it is on the table by the time my partner gets home. The house is always spotless and warm, as I’m very conscious of coming home to a tidy environment.
I see this as a fundamental part of my role in coming home first, and it takes a lot of my time. To imply that I have the time to “organize yourself better” really hurt.
I don’t expect praise, but I did hope that my efforts were recognized. I got told that “I don’t expect you to cook my dinner every night.” That was interpreted by me as ingratitude, and hurt me even more.
So where to from here? My spouse felt guilty at coming home every night to the perfect household, where I felt guilty if it wasn’t perfect. It was never about me trying to make my spouse feel guilty, but it seems it did. And this is where the communication fell down. He misinterpreted my efforts, and I misinterpreted his response.
Communication, communication, communication. I needed my partner to keep me informed of where things move to. I need to be informed. I need to voice my frustration before it gets to boiling point. We both need to talk about our feelings more, and how each of our contributions to our home and our relationship make us feel, and how we interpret each others contributions.
Just because something isn’t spoken about, doesn’t mean it’s not important. A relationship or marriage is not a competition, but for many couples it feels like it.
When people feel guilt or stress, it leads them to act funny ways. Often stress and guilt are barriers to communication. The key to overcoming them is to recognize what it is, and have the courage to talk about it. You might be able to do it as a couple, or you might want the help of a friend who can listen to the way you are communicating with each other and offer insights and advice.
We got it sorted out, and kissed and hugged. It wouldn’t hurt so much if I didn’t feel such love at the same time. But it served as a good reminder to me. Sometimes you get so wrapped up in your own emotions that you forget to think of the other person. You also need to entertain the possibility that you are misinterpreting each other. Talking about it is the way to expose the miscommunication and let the healing begin.
A good lesson to learn, even for the experts’

When you enter a new relationship or meet someone on a date it is really important to understand that being honest counts a lot. Actually it matters even before the first date, it matters when you first chat to that person.
Honesty counts even more if you really like the person and secretly hope that it will lead to a long term relationship. If you lie about anything you will almost certainly be found out at some point further down the line and this will lead to trust issues and cause pain to the person that you most want to like you for who you are.
Common mistakes are saying that you have a high powered job when you really have a much more ordinary one. We all want to impress and exaggerating is something we all do but a down right lie is another thing altogether.
Telling someone about your favourite things when all you are doing is mentioning the things that you know they prefer already. Everything you lie about in the beginning will eventually catch you out later at some point.
You have to remember that the person who you are talking to will like or dislike you because you are you. The last thing you need if you want a long term relationship is for that person to start liking the wrong you. Effectively you will making them see a different person. Often couples break up after a few months and it is quite often because one of them is now finding out the real truth about their partner.
This is sad because not only does the person who lied lose out but it also causes pain to the other party as well, and that should be the last person you want to hurt.
Lack of honesty breaks down trust. How can anyone trust when they have caught someone out not telling the truth, and trust is the building block of any relationship that is a fact.
So when you meet someone for the first time try and keep things honest. Focus on the positives and be yourself at all times. What you are really after is for someone to like you because of who you are, and that can never happen if you start of by not being honest.
Also you will be far more relaxed in yourself because you will have the confidence to know that you are talking about what is real. It is actually quite difficult to be false and still give a good impression. Actors have to train to be able to be convincing when playing the part of a different person after all.
In the long run you will find that honesty counts.
