Whether you want to find the love of your life or just someone to help pass the time, you may find yourself browsing one of the popular flirt dating sites. While browsing through the seemingly endless stream of available singles in your area, it is easy to feel like you’ll never be able to compete and stand out against the already established members there. Fortunately, you don’t have to feel inadequate or like you blend in to the shadows. We’ve got the information that will help you step out of the shadows, stand out against the crowd, and draw (positive) attention toward yourself.
Curious how? Continue reading for the tricks of the trade when it comes to attracting the man of your dreams—or at least how to get your flirt on with a worthy candidate.
Tip 1: Visualize Your Ideal Partner
Close your eyes and visualize the type of person that you want to flirt with. A lot of people who are on these dating sites look through the plethora of available singles without a clear idea of what they are looking for. They simply wait for their dream guy to come to them, rather than actively seek him out. This could work to your advantage, but in all honesty, it rarely does.
Instead of waiting, you want to visualize the person you want to spend your time with. Once you have a clear picture of him, you can better tailor yourself to highlight aspects that he may be drawn to. For example, if you want to flirt with an outdoorsy guy, you won’t want to talk so much about your video game collection, but instead talk about some of your favorite hiking trails.
Tip 2: Let Your Personality Shine via Screen Name
Your screen name is like your business card—it gives people a small preview of what to expect when talking to you. For example, if you’re a hopeless romantic, you don’t want to choose a cutesy screenname that indicates that you aren’t looking for a serious relationship but instead want a casual arrangement. Your screen name should reflect who you are and it should also give others an indication of what you are hoping to achieve with your online dating endeavors.
Tip 3: Choose Your Pictures Wisely
Other than your screen name, your profile picture is going to be one of the first things people see when they are looking through the list of potential matches. Your picture should represent you in the best (and most honest!) way possible.
This means that you don’t want to choose a picture of you that is several years old and wearing clothing that you normally do not wear. Instead, you should choose a photograph that best represents you on a daily basis and is current. Also, keep in mind that your picture shouldn’t be racy because it could give off the wrong impression and attract the wrong kind of guy. While there is nothing wrong in being proud of your physique, you want to leave a little to the imagination!
Tip 4: Create an Engaging Profile
When you are ready to actually write your profile, you’ll want to use language that is both descriptive and engaging. Your profile should read less like a want ad that is limited on space and was done in a hurry and more like a well thought-out description of who you are and what you want out of life and/or a partner.
It is very important that the person who is reading your profile feels included in your life and is able to envision themselves integrating into your life without too much difficulty. You’ll quickly find that when people can relate to you through your profile, you’ll have much better success standing out on a flirt dating site and who knows… You may even find yourself going on several dates this weekend!
