Online dating can be an annoying, frustrating experience at times.
For something that’s frequently hailed as the dating salvation for the introverted, the socially awkward, and the shy, sometimes all that happens is… nothing. Your winks and messages get sent out and all you get for your trouble is deafening silence. You see people checking out your profile and disappearing into the digital ether and the people you know should be just your type don’t pay any attention to you at all.
It’s enough to make many men shut down their accounts and give up on online dating entirely. After all, who wants to have yet another reminder that you’re alone and at home on a Friday night?
The problem however, is that often you’re focusing on the wrong areas. There’s no profit in expending valuable time and brain-cycles on the people who aren’t responding to you. You need to direct your attention to where it does the most good: the people who are already checking you out. Your messages can be awesome, but unless you have a profile that makes them stop and pay attention… well, you’re going to lose them.
So I’m about to impart to you the secret to online dating success: you need to quit thinking like a lover. You need to think like a marketer.
