Getting more people to contact you
you getting too few people contact you through your Internet personals
profile? In this article Stephanie Constantina of SingleDating.com

present it, apparently. Not to mention the photo you use...
Personals Sites: Getting more People to Contact
Are you in
this situation: you joined a net personals site but you're not getting
enough singles contacting you? Even if you're new to Internet personals
this article should also help you with writing your online profile.
at the problem of not enough singles making contact through your
profile, the first thing to ask yourself is: have you joined the
right personals site? If you joined a completely free site, you
should consider changing or upgrading to a paid one. This because
completely free sites are usually only worth what you paid to join
This may be
because the totally free Internet personals sites may not be able
to afford to run a proper service - they may not be able to monitor
their members, as an example. Also, completely free personals may
not be able to afford to properly maintain the technical side of
their dating site. So, if you are going to take finding a soulmate
seriously it's worth joining a high quality service.
for getting low rate of being contacted is that you joined a personals
site with too few members to be of much use. Find out which large
personals subscription site SingleDating.com recommends by visiting
the links at the end of this article. Ideally you should be looking
for a site with millions of members. Your chances of being contacted
will improve by themselves with a very large database of members.
This kind of thing is partly a numbers game. But that's far from
the whole story.
joined a good subscription service there is still much more you
can do to increase the number of people making contact with you.
Probably it is your personals profile that is letting you down.
If you already
have a personals profile online then you should look carefully at
how best to re-write it. A good idea is to take your time and make
several versions of the text of your personals profile until you
have a couple of versions that you are happy with. Then you can
try out these different versions in turn online to see which gets
the highest number of responses.
To this end
it's important to do some basic research into what kinds of profiles
catch the eye and make you want to read more. Go to the Internet
personals and do some searches. Read some profiles and when you
find one that grabs your attention ask yourself why it did this.
Was it for the right reasons? Sometimes certain profiles stand out
but they do not make you want to contact the people who wrote them.
The title or
heading of a personals profile is very important. What kind of headings
do you find yourself attracted by? Jot down a few thar caught your
attention and ask yourself why. If you like the approach some of
them take you could base the heading of your own profile on these,
without copying them, of course.
Then take a
look at the details of what you have written in your profile. Ask
yourself if you would be drawn to the person described if it had
been written by someone else. Is it too boring? Or even too suggestive,
perhaps? Look through lots of profile examples and try to find an
approach that works for you.
though is possibly the element of greatest importance in drawing
attention to your personal profile. A good photograph can make all
the difference and you should consider getting one done professionally.
You will find more on using photos in your profile through the links
in the resource box at the foot of this article.
If you are
willing to take the extra time needed to get your profile right,
then your time spent using the personals will be much better spent
than otherwise. And let's face it, meeting your soulmate online
would be wonderful, wouldn't it? So it is well worth spending the
time to get every aspect of your Internet personals membership just
