Cyber Dating Tip of the Week

After creating your irresistible online dating profile, you might find that keeping tabs on your emails and responses can feel like a full time job. Although it’s not a class project or a thesis, you still need to have good organizational skills to successfully manage your responses. My dating advice is to be organized. I recommend using an excel spreadsheet or a notebook for this task.

When your Inbox is overflowing with suitors, you can then carefully look at the different options on a single page and start the communication process. Some important categories would include:

  • Screen Name
  • Age
  • Date of Contact
  • Date of Response
  • City
  • Weight/height
  • Phone Number
  • Email

Writing back on a timely fashion will help make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to meet that special one online. I recommend color coding your responses. Highlight your first choices in one color, and select another color for those you have spoken to. The squeaky deal does get the wheel, so don’t let this project go on the back burner.

If it sounds too overwhelming, ask yourself how you would organize job prospects with your perfect resume. Your personal life should deserve even more attention than your job hunt.

Cyber Dating Tip – An Apple a Day

Apple on Laptop

Who said the only way to meet someone in the digital world was on an online dating site?

While I am a fan of online dating, there are many singles who haven’t dipped their toe in yet to the world of cyberspace. Almost half of the U.S. single population have tried online dating (source: US Census bureau). Where does the other half go if they are technically challenged or prefer to meet someone offline first?

There are the usual spots: coffee shops, cocktail bars, and singles dances. Still, some singles don’t want to venture out alone.

Do you want my suggestion?

Here you go. If you are a Mac user or have an iphone, sign up for their lessons at the Apple store. Their One To One program is available at the time you purchase your Mac or iphone and only costs $99/year. They have both private lessons and small group lessons available and there’s a full schedule to select from.

Why do I suggest going to the apple store to meet a potential date? It’s a low-pressure way of easing into a conversation with someone who may be able to share their experiences with you. You may walk out of the store with a new friend, a date, or in Hollywood perhaps even an agent. ?With their free wifi service, it’s easy to check your email while someone else may be checking you out.

Remember, men really do like smart-educated women. You never know, you may become the new apple of their eye. Better yet, you will be keeping your computer in tip-top-shape while you wait for your Inbox to fill up from interested parties from your favorite cyber-dating site.
