I can teach you every step to achieving success in the online dating world, but it won’t matter unless you’re aware of the common pitfalls. Most men are unable to meet a decent woman online. The ones that do meet someone usually end up meeting the wrong woman. That’s because they constantly make one or more of the following 5 costly online dating mistakes…
Failing to familiarize yourself with the site
There are 5 great dating sites, which you can read about on this site. But each of those 5 sites are vastly different. They each have their own positive qualities, but you need to employ a specific strategy for each of the sites. For example, let’s say you’re signed up for Match and eHarmony. As you learned in a previous post, Match is more suited for quick meets with women. eharmony is better suited for those with a bit more patience because it’s harder to meet women right away. Get to know the site features and nuances of the site before contacting women and creating a profile.
Relying on just one dating site
I can’t stress how much I love Match.com, but I also believe you should sign-up for a second site such as eHarmony. That’s not to say you can’t meet someone on Match.com. You definitely can. But I feel as though you’re limiting your exposure to women with just one site. Remember what I said about it taking some time to meet someone on eHarmony? Let’s say you meet someone on Match.com right away but things don’t go so well. You can go back to eHarmony and maybe you’ll have a different, better woman waiting in the wings.
Crating a disastrous profile
I don’t know how to stress this any further than I have on this website – a quality profile is crucial. You WON’T meet anyone decent if your profile is lame. Far too many guys sign-up for a dating site and fork over the money for a membership but are too lazy to take the time to create a great profile. It’s not hard to do and yours must stand out. Don’t underestimate the importance of a nice online dating profile. It’s your marketing tool. It tells women who you are, what you’re all about, and what you’re looking for. They won’t be inclined to contact you if your profile sucks or you seem boring when they read it.
Not telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth
I am 100% against deceiving or straight-up lying to women online. Sure, it might help score you a date. Maybe you’re really not that much of a catch but lie to cover up your flaws and that impresses a woman so she agrees to go out with you. How long do you think you’ll get away with that lie? Maybe for a couple of dates. After that, she’s going to find out. And once she does, she’ll never speak to you again. If you’re just looking for a one-night stand, go out to a bar and find some drunk skank. If you want a steady relationship, be honest with women online. Not only will you sleep better at night, you’ll have a better chance of finding true love.
