Welcome to the Wild and Whimsical World of Internet Dating

Top 5 Tips: Get your mojo moving on Match.com

 Here are 5 Tips to get your dating mojo moving:

  1. Reach out and touch someone:  Every day, check-in and play the game.It all dates back to awkward Teen Dances where the girls were told they had to wait to be asked to dance. Good little girls waited by the wall…others went to the dance floor and danced the night away- happily. Boys and girls: no standing by at the wall – send a one-line note to three men/women every night – it doesn’t hurt.

  1. Date your own decade

Yes, 30-year-olds are hot. And, you think you are, too. Fact: You are their parent’s age. No one wants to date his or her dear old dad or his or her grandfather. Date your decade. You’ll have a lot more fun.

  1. Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated

So John/Martha sends you a “note.” They’re not your perfect match…so what do you do? Ignore them? No – simply write a quick note saying ‘Thank you for your interest, we are not a match and best of luck in the dating game.” Good karma points.

4. Please delete the grumpy old man/woman routine: Do not write this:

  • “Fair is fair! I posted my correct age and height, weight, you should too!”
  •   “Please post your accurate age, weight, height, income, and religious beliefs.”hearts

5. Reality check: What are the chances an intelligent grown up is going to post their income, their accurate age/ height/ weight/ religious truths to hundreds, nay, thousands of total strangers? Can you spell “Ballpark?”

Why would anyone post his or her actual income on a public site?

Finally,  That professional, four-year-old photo from the company brochure is “dated.” Delete it and post a current photo today. Only you can update your profile, Binkie. 

                     I know: Radical concepts flying in the face of Matchmaking.

Someone had to say it.

 Cheers!
