Having trouble finding a match online? Perhaps your profile is to blame. Here are 4 simple tips to help singles create great profiles on PlanetLoveMatch.com.
Make It Memorable
The more original your profile, the more likely it is that single men or women will notice, and remember, you. Too many profiles say the same things. Avoid using online dating clichés like “I like having a good time” and “I love to laugh.” Replace them instead with interesting, specific tidbits about you. For example, how you have a good time and what things make you laugh. Better yet, post pictures! Specifics are memorable, vague clichés are not.

There are numerous ways to communicate with someone you’ve dated. The most recent of course is the text message, otherwise known as SMS or short message service. It gets a lot of mileage on our smart phones. Like other forms of communication there are rules to apply when it comes to that someone special.
Most people would advise that you not call immediately after the first date. It’s best to wait a day or so, however, with texting the lines may be a bit blurry. If you had a great first date you may want to rush to the QWERTY keyboard and start texting away. Typing a short message like “I had a great time, can’t wait to do it again” is acceptable.

I am the only man currently contributing to this blog, so I believe I have a moral obligation to help ladies reading this blog better understand the creatures on the other side of the gender aisle. This post will talk about one of the basic tenets in keeping a man happy and onboard with your relationship.
Ever notice the correlation between his stomach’s fullness and his mood? Well, as a wise Mayan once paraphrased for me, “a hungry man is an angry man.”
A man’s mood is tied to two places on his body. I am sure you can figure out one of them. The other is his stomach. There is no greater driving force.

At times, it may seem that singles on online dating websites are only focused on the negative, what they DON'T want in a mate rather than what they do. However, online daters aren't always looking out for the bad. Here are 3 positive qualities that single men and women would love to find a match.
Well-rounded men and women with outside interests and an active social life (offline) are generally more attractive than singles with few friends and/or those who rarely leave the house. While it may be tempting to spend all of your time online, searching for the perfect person, it isn’t healthy and it may even harm your chances of finding a match. Continue to pursue outside passions and hobbies and don’t stop going out with your family or friends just because you’re hoping to find someone special online.

When you’re dating online, you might have to deal with an influx of unwanted attention. Only you know what you’re looking for in a mate, and not everyone you meet or who messages you will be a perfect match. So what happens when your date thinks there’s a connection but you don’t?
It’s important not to lead anyone on. If you know that the partnership or relationship isn’t going anywhere, it’s your responsibility to cut the cord – it’s not fair to you or the other person to keep it going because you’re afraid of hurting someone. You’re not obligated to keep dating a person, especially if you don’t like them for any reason – and don’t think you’re being shallow if you’re not physically attracted.
If you’re not attracted to your date, that’s a pretty good sign that you’re in a dead-end situation. Further, your date doesn’t have to be the World’s Sexiest Person for you to be attracted to them. They might look like Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, and you still might not like them. It’s okay! Not everyone has the same tastes (and, like you’ve been told since kindergarten, the world would be boring if we DID have the same tastes). Sure, looks aren’t everything, but attraction sure helps in a relationship.
