2010 in arrivo

Happy New Year


As we count down the minutes and hours until 2010, it’s time to ring in the New Year with some cyberdating tips for the new decade.

If you found yourself alone again this holiday, it’s time to take a personal inventory of what you truly want in a relationship. Here’s my dating advice for those looking for love online.

1. Cyber-Dating Tip #1 – Narrow down your search. Do your friends complain that you are too picky? Have they stopped fixing you up? There’s nothing wrong with knowing exactly what you want in a relationship. Remember, no one really gets it all. We are an imperfect society. Make a list of what is most important to you. Number it from 1-10. Now, focus on the first 3 items on your list. Is it Religion? Bicycling? Hiking? Strolling through museums? Put those key words in your search. You might be delighted to see what pops up.

2. Cyber-Dating Tip #2 – ?Reach out and reconnect. Did you get too busy during the year and miss out on meeting someone you started to communicate with online? Take a look in your Inbox and find those you found interesting but didn’t have the time to meet. Reach out and send an email with a simple, “Happy New Year.” If their profile is still online, assume they haven’t met “the one” yet. It may be a time for a new beginning for both of you.

3. Cyber-Dating Tip #3 – Refresh your profile. If you are satisfied with the online dating profile you currently have, edit a few words here and there. Your profile will become refreshed and chances are will show up higher in a search.
