In terms of online dating in Spain some might think there’s more ‘luck’ to it than strategy. However that isn’t necessarily true. There are some key tricks to take note of when embarking into the online dating world.
Some things to think about when online dating:
Writing the Online Profile:
The profile is the key to getting your prospects attention. One of the best ways to create a sexy, catchy profile is to ‘show’ people who you are, not ‘tell’ them. For example, instead of using adjectives to describe yourself, tell a story or an anecdote. Paint a compelling picture of who you are in a unique way, rather than simply saying, ‘I’m warm, nice, caring funny etc…’ Be unique in your approach and you’ll find the people who respond will be more in tune with what you are looking for.
When writing the email, especially the first email, the key is to make sure the other person doesn’t think you want them more than they want you. Make the initial email short and to the point. A good tactic is to find something in their profile you can comment on or joke about, lightly. Keep the email short and then wait for the reply.
The First Date:
Once the hits start pouring in, the key is to weed out the good ones from the bad ones. When deciding to meet someone make sure it’s done in a comfortable, neutral setting. Lunch and coffee first dates are often a better solution than the typical evening date. They’re more relaxed and can be done in somewhat more open and social settings to avoid awkward moments if you’re not ‘that into’ the person or don’t trust them.
