1 Comment


It’s the first week of Spring and Love is in the Air. Whether you are interested in a spring fling or finding that serious relationship in an online dating site, be open to all the possibilities. With the change of seasons comes a new attitude, both online and offline. With the stock market jumping up 500 points, and outdoor cafes filled with patrons again, it’s time to refresh that profile and jump back on the cyber-dating saddle.

With this in mind, here are a few Cyber-Dating Tips for those with Spring Fever and those who might benefit from the contagious effect.

1. Cyber-Dating Tip #1. Appearance counts online and offline. After all isn’t it your goal to turn that online romance into an offline relationship? Dress accordingly and “Spring For a New Dress” at 40% off the spring styles at With prices this low, you can look fashionable and fun with a new first date attire.

2. Cyber-Dating Tip #2. For the men, try a new cologne to wear on your first online date. A woman may be drawn to that sexy scent of one of my favorites,?Acqua Di Gio By Giorgio Armani For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 3.4 Ounces?and accept that second date.

3. Cyber-Dating Tip #3. Turn on your webcam. Many computers come equipped with a built in webcam, or you can purchase one easily for $71.97 such as this one from?Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 (Black). Online dating sites such as and are fun and flirty and allow you to communicate with someone where you can at least verify their physical authenticity in real time. This will prevent that disappointing look one received when the photos of their cyber-date don’t match up in person.

4. Cyber-Dating Tip #4. On a budget? Sign up for your *Free* 7 day trial memberships to and now available at? Select a date or two and suggest meeting at a museum on the free admission day and have a casual picnic in the garden. Look through the calendar section of your local paper and ask your online date if they would like to go to a concert. There are many free concert performances that are just as enjoyable as those with the high priced ticket charge.?

5. Cyber-Dating Tip #5.?Respond to or write to 5 online personal ads a day for one week and see what happens. Check out who’s been checking you out or hotlisted you and email them and initiate the conversation. There may be a shy one out there who will be so flattered to see that the one they like might feel the same way as well.?

    Great points, especially like #1 and #3. The biggest faux paux you can make when dating over webcam is to hang out in your messy room in your pajamas.
