If the Internet is good for anything—and, actually, it’s good for lots of things—it’s good for finding a needle in a haystack.
Whether you’re hankering after a pistol grip for that vintage Hasselblad single reflex camera, or want to learn all the lyrics to R. M.’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know it,” the World Wide Web has made tracking down and securing even the most obscure objects your heart desires a lot easier.
While many of said online matchmaking entities equate “attraction” with a mathematical equation, Nerve Dating (an off-shoot of the sex/dating/culture site, Nerve.com), has incorporated social media conventions into their platform that allow soulmate searchers to create connections via interactive conversations, rather than simply writing essays, checking off endless lists, and hoping for the best.
What matters more than anything when it comes to your online dating profile? Photos can drastically increase your chances of getting more communication and dates. In fact, profiles with photos are nine times more likely to get communication.
Use your photos as a primary tool to express who you are, what you love to do, where you love to go and what type of lifestyle you lead.
Yet, when it comes to online matters of the heart, finding “the one” often remains elusive.
That’s because love, like the Internet, has a lingo and etiquette all its own.
Bottom line: a dating profile—your first impression—is “sell copy,” and you’re the product being marketed.
