Complete your profile
Once you’ve chosen a dating website, you’ll need to set up your profile. To make the most out of your membership, it’s important to dedicate the time to completing your online dating profile.
Uploading a high quality, flattering recent photo will give potential suitors a flavour of your appearance, whilst filling out details such as your age, status and what you’re looking for should help you meet people with a similar profile. Meanwhile, writing a short bio will showcase your personality, to ensure that the person you meet really ‘gets’ you from day one.
Completed your profile? Don’t just sit back and wait for the online dating messages to roll in. Take the initiative and start browsing for local singles that catch your eye.
A short and sweet message introducing yourself or asking a few questions will break the ice and encourage a response. Asking how their Christmas went or wishing them a happy New Year is a great icebreaker to start a conversation! After all, what have you got to lose if one or two of them don’t respond?
The next few days are set to be the busiest of the year for online dating sites, so don’t miss your chance to get talking to local singles near you! Start 2016 with a bang by throwing yourself into the world of free online dating, and who knows where it could take you. You could even be clinking glasses with a new partner by Valentine’s Day!
