Remember this is not the time to appear demanding and restricting you perfect partner to a certain type. In your earlier life you may have limited yourself to blonde size 10 females who were happy to put up with your bad habits but the size of your dating market is smaller so try not to push dates away too early.

Pro active dater: If you intend to use the search facilities and make contact try and avoid the “shotgun” approach. Normally a male trait, it is common for them to send one email to numerous females in an attempt to play the percentage game. This type of email is normally generic in its nature and makes no mention of the person to whom it is intended. You make get a reply but how many we commit your advances to their junk mail box.
Re active dater: If the direct approach is not for you then all you can do is wait for someone to find your profile. Seems straight forward but even here blunders can be made if you come across as too demanding, too keen or make inappropriate questions too early you may come across as desperate.
Don’t let online dating replace the real thing you will I am sure be keen to make the right impression and move ahead to arrange your first date. For those that have broken the ice it is still possible to destroy your chances by coming across too eager. Try not to come across as a stalker by sending un solicited emails, there may be a very good reason why you have not received a reply so be patient.
If you get to your first date you do not need me to tell you what to do or not to do to make it perfect. However please remember that most mature adults have seen it and heard it all before if you do get chance to spend quality time together try the old fashioned approach of honesty and sincerity.
