Tips for Dating on

In addition, you should be using the search function to create your own shortlist of people you want to interact with.

The one downside of is that there is so much activity on the site that much of you communication gets lost. Many women receive hundreds of messages a day and it can be hard to stand out. This means it's all the more important for you to not give up and keep sending messages out consistently. I find it helps to set a goal, such as to send 10 messages a day.

In the initial stages, I think photos are more important than the verbiage in your profile (most profiles just contain boring stuff anyway).

And do upload more than one picture, as that's the norm these days and if you only have one picture, your profile will seem a bit lacking.
