Dear Michelle Valentine,

What are some tips towards getting the best responses from online dating?

A friend of mine goes on quite a few dates from men from hers.

She hasn’t met the right guy yet, but she says it is fun!

I’ve placed a lot of profiles over the past year, but I haven’t been getting the right kind of men contacting me. I think I’m done with online dating.

Not for Me

 

Dear Not For Me,

I’m so happy for your friend!

That’s good she continues to date guys from online dating, even though she hasn’t met “The One” yet.

The more people she goes out with, the higher her chance of finding her Mr. Right.

One important thing to remember when it comes to meeting the right kind of men, is to associate yourself near the appropriate type of man you are looking for.

For instance, if you are seeking a man in his late thirties, very successful in his career, and he would enjoy golfing just as much as you do, you should attend events suited to those tastes.

In other words, attend a charity function at a country club as opposed to spending your time at a hot-bod contest at the beach!

A tip towards getting the best response to your personals ad is to speak honestly of what you are about and what you are seeking in a man.

Yes, you might want a man who is tall, dark, and handsome – but wouldn’t you truly love a guy who is 5’8”, has a great career, loves to cook, is caring, has a good sense of humor, and loves children?
