Is it really here? February raced by like the short month that it was and it’s now time for March madness.
How does the change of season affect cyber-daters? Well to start off with, any anxiety or build up during February for Valentine’s Day is now past and spring is around the corner. ?In addition, some couples who chose to stay together until Valentine’s was over are suddenly finding themselves single and are joining the many online dating sites that are available.
Every week a new online dating site is formed, many sites are niche and narrowly focused and some are free as well.
So my advice for those who are single and would like to become a couple, is of course to put up a brand new profile.
Here’s a few of my cyber-dating tips for March Madness and the season to Spring Ahead.
Cyber-Dating Tip #1. Try a different online dating site. For Internet dating with a new twist, go to Speedate.com, where you can have the benefits of online dating from your house along with the fun of speed dating.
Cyber-Dating Tip #2. Along with cleaning out your closet, why not go back into your files, spreadsheet, or online dating Inbox, and see if there is someone that you passed over last month that you should reply to. It’s a new month and you may have passed over Mr./Ms. Right, last month.
Cyber-Dating Tip #3. Attend a dance or a mixer from one of the many online dating sites. JDate, NoWaitingDating, and Cupid.com have several, so sign up and perhaps you will notice a familiar face at one of these events that you just never got around to writing to.
Cyber-Dating Tip #4. Go see a fun movie, such as “He’s Just Not that Into You” and compare notes with your real life experiences. ?Perhaps you will hear a familiar line or two, or spot a character type that is familiar. ?You can the practice your new learned skills with your next online date.
Cyber-Dating Tip #5. Since March madness is best known for the NCAA basketball tournament, some men may be fixated on their TV screens or at a local sports pub on St. Patrick’s Day. ?Stop on by and root for your favorite team, and during the commercial breaks you can compare your Internet dating stories with another fan. Who knows what it could lead to.
And as always, if you meet that special one online, ?or get struck by the luck of the Irish, I invite you to share your stories with me at CyberDatingExpert.com
