I’m not saying these women have landed on any one magical app full of dateable men and steady dates.
But with a discerning eye and a sense of humor, they have tamed Tinder and are meeting men who share their desire for a relationship.
When I choose my profile photos, I’m thoughtful about what I want to draw a man’s attention to.
I try to highlight aspects about myself I want men to notice (like my smile), and I avoid posting pictures that highlight my cleavage or any other sexual parts.
If you have to, set a reminder to check in on your app(s).
Conversations that lapse for more than a day or so rarely result in dates, in my experience.
Stay engaged and remember to ask questions as well as answer them in order to keep things going. ) Chat it up openly, be a little flirty, and present yourself as a friendly and sociable woman that this guy would be a fool not to ask out.
I was immediately skeptical, having heard lots of not-so-great tales from others about the service, but she quickly added that a seemingly decent guy had contacted her and wanted to take her out on a date. I know a lot of women who seek dating advice from the wrong people—bitter gal-pals, friends who haven’t had successful relationships, and even parents who can be less than helpful when trying to navigate the online dating world.I talked about what I did for work and what I enjoyed doing on the weekends and cracked a few jokes.But then I was having to weed through so many people that didn’t have similar values or goals.Our profile photo selections looked totally different.Men are visual, so if you show them a picture of you in your bathing suit or even a tight dress at a club, they immediate focus on your body parts, not your potential as a long-term mate.
