How well you do you know yourself?

April 20, 2012

I thought I knew myself pretty well until I started dating. Then I was consistently surprised by the new and different things I learned about myself with almost each date.

So, how about you… can you answer each of these with certainty?



Make that list… it works!

March 9, 2012

A few things I’ve been hearing from people lately:

What’s the point of writing out a list of what I want from a date/partner/husband/wife?

How do I know what to ask for?

How do I know I’ll get what I ask for?

The author of Harry Potter has a story that might change your perspective.


Is there a benefit to joining more than one Online Dating site?

October 21, 2011

Yes. I think it’s better to be on more than one site because each site can attract different types of people.

Another benefit is that you may learn more about yourself as you read about and talk to a wider selection of personalities – and this could better help you know what it is you “want.”


A few more words on updating your profile

October 7, 2011

My last blog entry talked about the “interests” section of your profile.

I’d like to detail this a bit more because – much of the time – I find people make their lists full of “physical” attributes and light on “mental, emotional, and spiritual” attributes.

Being physically attracted to the person you’re dating is important. However, it needs to be complemented by the other attributes.

So, revisit your list (or start one today) and be sure to include all the important areas of a well rounded person. And make sure each attribute is clearly defined. Here are some examples.


Update your profile to increase the number of people writing to you

September 30, 2011

So how many emails are you receiving? Hopefully at least two to three a week? If not, maybe it’s time to review your profile.

For example, you could revisit the section of your profile that talks about your interests:

  • Do you have a variety of interests listed? 
  • Do these interests reflect who you are as a person? 
  • Are they both inside and outside activities (theater, reading, waterskiing, biking)?

You could also review the section where you talk about the requirements of the person and relationship you’re looking for. Are they realistic? Are they clear?
