Your 2020 Dating Resolutions
Happy New Year! As a new decade greets us, it’s time to make some dating resolutions. Make this the year that you find the one!
1. Upload A Photo
It’s the most important thing you can do when online dating. The statistics around profiles without a photo are staggering! Over 80% of singles will overlook a profile without a photo, regardless of how amazing your profile is. It’s your photo that will create that crucial first impression and will draw everyone into your profile. It’s the most important thing you can do if you’re serious about finding someone online this year.
2. Complete Your Profile
If your photo creates a first impression, it’s your profile that will create the ice-breakers. The more you write, the higher the chance you have of sparking someone’s interest. Most singles say they are searching for like-minded people, so how will they know that they share your interests if you haven’t included them?
3. Log In Regularly
A popular way people search for singles is by their online status. If someone is online at the same time as you, they are more likely to reply quickly. People who are online will have a green circle on their profile photo on a mobile and a green bar on a desktop. You can also add ‘Online Now’ as a search filter and then you will only see people online. Logging in more frequently also ensures that you don’t miss a thing.
For everyone looking to find love, meeting up is the main objective, which is why dating should be your aim in 2020. For safety reasons, of course, we always recommend that you get to know singles through onsite messaging first of all. Only meet up when you are ready, but you should always have this end goal in mind. Dating can be nerve-wracking for even the most confident of people, so it’s important to not let this put you off. Once you start dating you’ll realise it’s not that scary.
5. Be Nice
This sounds like a no-brainer to most people, but sometimes it’s hard to remember that behind every photo and profile there is a real person. It’s impossible that everyone you encounter will be your cup of tea, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need to be treated fairly. Common sense is a big part of this, but there are a few simple rules to follow. Firstly, if you get contacted by someone who is completely unsuitable, a simple message back saying something along the lines of, “Thanks for your message! Unfortunately you’re not right for me, but good luck in your search!” Most people will appreciate the closure they get from this and move on. Secondly, use the “Block” button with caution. It is there only for safety reasons, a message with an explanation is always a better way to end a conversation.
Cheers to a whole new decade, full of love and romance! Your journey starts and your dating resolutions start today…
