Online dating for marriage
As an aficionado of online dating, and founder of Marry Me Already.com, a dating site targeted strictly at people looking for serious relationships and marriage, I am often asked how online daters can distinguish between people looking for that special someone and those who are just in it for a night of fun. Online dating can really work, with as many as one in six marriages today between people who met online.
The trick is in sifting out the diamonds from the ruffians!
A serious potential mate doesn't have to be a poet laureate or a novelist to catch your attention, but if his first message to you reads something like "Hi, you're cute.
If you insist on keeping things casual, you can meet for cocktails (preferably non-alcoholic, otherwise not more than two for the evening is a good rule of thumb).Post realistic but flattering photos, and write something about yourself that is intriguing and tells your suitors what you are passionate about and what makes you tick.Then watch how quickly other quality people who also put in the same type of effort are drawn to you!So before you take the conversation to the phone, invest some time in reading his emails and profile.How much time did he put into his profile, and more important, how much time is he willing to put into get to know YOU?
