1. Be active. If you haven’t been signing on at least every few days, it may put potential matches off because they won’t think you’re serious about the online dating process. Take a few minutes to look around and make changes to keep your profile and photos fresh; you never know who will be seeking you out!
2. Don’t overshare. If you stumble across a profile that says, “I’m getting over a horrible divorce,” are you really interested in reaching out? No one wants to hear your sob story, so zip up those sad tales up and focus on the positive things that you want in a relationship.
3. Reach out! If you aren’t sending at least one email every other day, you are missing out! Keep your intro email short and sweet (no more than three sentences) and always ask a question that reflects something written in his/her profile. The whole point of online dating is to reach out, make connections, and get offline to find love!
