Do These 5 Things To Upgrade Your Online Dating Game

It’s time to productively upgrade your online dating skills. We’ve put together 5 tips to get you on the right track to actually landing a real life date. Brush up below, get that phone out, and get out there this weekend!

Know What You Want:

Before diving into the online dating sea you should be aware of what type of relationship you desire. Whether you’re looking for a hook-up, casual dates or a serious relationship, pick one and create your profile with that in mind.

Do the Research and Become a Creeper:

Want to know the easiest way to gain insight into a woman’s online dating perspective? Create a female profile (not in a catfish way!) for a day and observe how men talk to you. It’s no secret that women get bombarded by messages from men who all think they’ve got serious game… Use this tip to educate yourself and avoid writing the same bullshit she’s getting every other guy.

Put Some Thought Into your Intro:

According to a study by dating site OKCupid, messages that include the phrase “you mention” along with an interest listed in her profile, or messages that suggest you have a common interest, have a much higher chance of getting a response.

Ask Her Out!

Get to the point and ask about meeting up. Why avoid going to the digits for a telephone call? There’s no reason for you to start another awkward convo. Get out there, meet her, and see if you click.

Don’t F**k Up Your Profile Pic

The best performing photos show a guy looking away from the camera, and not smiling. If you’re looking to score a date then ditch that old yearbook pose you perfected in the 7th grade. Instead, go for a photo of you in a social setting and another showing you doing something interesting. The key for the latter is to spark curiosity and create topics of conversation.
