Our Top Tips for Online Dating
Whether you’re an old hand at online dating or it’s a brand new experience for you, here at AstroDate we can help you make your profile the best that it can be. Our online dating tips will help you shape your profile and give you the confidence to find the right partner for you.
1. Upload a decent profile pic
When it comes to online dating, without being able to present yourself in all your multisensory glory, people rely on photos to assess what you look like. Now that doesn’t mean you have to look a certain way, or conform to some perfect aestheticism. But having a decent profile pic that shows off your lovely face and gives people a sense of your personality, how you dress etc will win people over! Something artistic is fine if that’s your bag, but avoid overly dark, light or obscure photos that don’t actually show people what you look like.
2. Don’t be afraid to describe yourself fully
The ‘About myself’ section of your profile is there for the filling! It can feel quite daunting when faced with a blank canvas to fill, but you can edit it as many times as you like. Include info about your hobbies, values, what you do for a living, if you’re quite a sociable person or more of a homebody etc. This is about giving people a flavour of who you are, what you like and don’t like, and so on.
3. Be clear and honest and about what you want
The questions we include about what you’re looking for, your current relationship status and your sexual preferences will help people understand more about you. Being clear and honest at this stage saves a lot of hassle further down the line. There are no right or wrong answers – you are you and when it comes to online dating, everything is acceptable. Just be honest! We live in a different world now where anything goes, and people are proud of it.
4. Bite the bullet and say ‘Hi’
Conversations have to start somewhere, right? So why not be the one to strike them up? You have nothing to lose in reaching out to someone you like the look and sound of and just seeing what happens. Who knows… the rest could be history! If you’re feeling creative, take a look at their profile and include something about it in your message. Perhaps a question or mention something about you that is similar. If you’d rather play it safe, just say ‘Hi!’ and ask them how they are etc. The most important thing is to say something.
5. Use AstroDate’s AstroMatch tool
This clever little tool uses synastry – comparing your natal/birth chart with someone else’s – to match you with much greater efficiency than other dating app matching tools. It even goes one step further than comparing Sun (star) signs and works with much greater accuracy to see well suited you might be with others. Astromatch is what makes Astrodate so unique, so while you’re here, why not give it a go?!
