Back To Basics

Dating advice is everywhere. With just a few clicks you can find out how to take the perfect photo, exactly what to write in your profile and even how to ask someone out. But sometimes it’s good to get a reminder of the very basic rules of dating, just to be reassured that you’re on the right track. Let’s start from the very beginning…

1. Have A Photo

This is definitely rule number 1. If you don’t have a photo, your head certainly isn’t in the game. Before you do anything, upload at least one photo – it really is the most important thing you can do. Make sure it’s a photo just of you, it’s well lit and good quality.

2. Add Interests & Characteristics

Writing your profile is essential of course, but adding your Interests and completing your Characteristics is quicker and will get you faster results. This is because people like to use these to filter their searches.

3. Write Your About Me

This is the main part of your profile. Write a small summary of your life, what kind of person you are and who you are looking to find.

4. Send An Introduction

It’s important not to just repeat what you’ve written in your About Me in your Introduction. Your Introduction message should be short, snappy and eye-catching. The purpose is to get people viewing your profile, so leave them wanting more by being mysterious and asking questions.

5. Play Encounters

Once your profile is done, the last thing to do is play Encounters, the unique dating game exclusive to JustSingles. This allows you to search through singles whilst also discovering who feels the same about you.
