Modern DatingIn the last article, I talked about how you can buy jewelry online. But all that great jewelry won't mean much unless you can show them off on dates. Sadly, many people in today's busy world have difficulty meeting people. It's no surprise, given how hectic our lives have become. Many studies show that most of us have far less free time than we did in the past.

Enter online dating. For many people, dating web sites like have become the ideal solution to their dating woes. But simply joining a dating web site won't magically win you some dates with eligible singles, unless you play your cards right. Here are some tips on how to use the most effectively:

  1. Use photos taken by a professional
    This can really make your profile stand out from the crows. Not all your photos have to be taken by a professional, but your main profile pic should be. Then, you can also sprinkle in photos of yourself while engaged in activities, vacationing, or doing something interesting.
  2. Keep working on your profile description
    Don't just slap together a profile then wait for results. Instead, you should think of your profile as an ever-evolving work in progress. As you browse other profiles, you'll start getting a better feel for what works and what doesn't in the online dating landscape. Incorporate what you learn into your own profile, and continue to tweak it.
  3. Don't pull out your wallet and join until you are sure about a site
    How can you be sure if a dating web site is one that is a good fit for you? The best way is by opening a free trial account at multiple sites. Most dating sites are free to join and browse. Quite a few of them, like, also offer a free trial that enables you to take advantage of the paid features of the site, for a limited amount of time.
  4. Be proactive
    Don't be shy, and don't hesitate to send out lots of messages and feelers to see if you connect with people. Many people make the mistake of waiting for others to communicate with them first. Instead, take initiative, and you will see better results.
