Become a good listener
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.
Do you know that most of us lack the basic skills of being a good listener. Even people who are supposedly good at communication can show a lack of this skill.
Being an effective communicator is an essential part of any relationship. When you have poor listening skills, you cannot be an effective communicator.
Here are some Tips on How to become a Better Listener
When you are communicating with anyone you would need to remove all distractions so that you are able to concentrate on what is being said. The various types of distractions that stop you from being a better listener include replying to emails, talking on the phone, listening to music. If you are in a room with a television make sure it is turned off.
You need to pay full attention to what is being said and if you are unable to understand, ask for clarifications. Asking questions proves that you were attentive during the conversation.
It is always advisable to wait for the other to finish talking before you start your conversation. You should try not to interrupt anyone while they are talking. You will not just prove to be a bad listener when you interrupt people midway during a conversation but come across as someone who lacks the basic etiquettes of communication. Basically it is just plain rude to interrupt someone.
Do not assume what the other person is saying. When you start assuming things you will on occasions simply get it wrong.
Listening is an important aspect of communication and you will need to pay attention to this important skill, if you want to have a successful realationship.
