Polite online dating
So girls and guys must have drastically different experiences with online dating.
The girls post a profile and get bombarded with messages from guys, guys scan profiles and message the girls.
A Means to an End – As you pick and choose your dates online, it’s important to recognize what type of people you’re drawn to. Remember, there is an end goal and that’s to meet someone with whom you can share your life.
Christian Mingle wants you to meet someone who shares your place on “the faith spectrum” because compatible matches are most likely to last the longest.
Then there's the opposite: really long or really nice messages that obviously took a long time to write.
Get an Outside Look – Members often tell us that they get friends and family members to help write their profile. Unfortunately there's no easy answer, especially since different people prefer different things.I've seen some profiles where they actually state that they would prefer a response, even if it's a rejection, and others that don't want you to reply (and "waste their time") if you're not interested.Those people can tell you what they love about you, so you’re reminded of your stellar qualities. Don’t enlist your journalist brother or publicist best friend to write for you (though they can certainly proofread).Take a Beat – The faster you complete your profile in its entirety, the quicker you’ll start getting responses from local Christian singles. Be as thorough as possible and really give your answers consideration. Check out our tips at How to Perfect Your Christian Mingle Profile to get started. Online dating is an opportunity to meet and greet all types of Christian singles.
