Looking for Love Online – The Business of Online Dating [Infographic]

MBA Programs - Looking for Love Online [infographic]

Looking for Love Online? You’re not alone as the online dating industry has more than doubled in revenue in the past five years.

Internet dating has been the featured topic of many Infographics that we’ve added to our pinboard on Pinterest.

The latest one comes from MBA Programs, which includes the sub-title of our book, Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online, so we couldn’t resist sharing it with you.

As they ponder if online dating really works and tell us who lies the most, we wonder why men would only knock off two pounds and 1/2 an inch off their true weight and height.? Do you think online daters rush to the alter three times faster than those who have met offline?

We’d love to hear your thoughts.

5 Ways to Make Your Dating Profile More Irresistible

5 Ways to Make Your Profile IrresistibleIf your inbox is rather empty and your online dating profile is ho-hum, it’s time for a digital facelift to ramp up your search.

When you watch the TV commercials for eHarmony,, or Zoosk and see several success couples, do you wonder why it’s not working for you?

Before you hang up your digital hat, know that it doesn’t take an army to help you create an irresistible online dating profile, but just like a good newspaper or magazine article, you do need to stand out in the crowded marketplace.

Here are five tips that you can try on your own. If you need a little hand-holding, visit and we’ll get you started in no time.

Tips for Creating an Irresistible Online Dating Profile

1.? It’s all About the Photos. If hiring a professional photographer is in your budget, it’s an excellent idea. Perhaps you don’t need to buy that extra dress on sale. If not, grab a friend with a digital camera and snap about 100 photos in 5 different outfits. You can always fall back on browsing the photos you’ve uploaded on Facebook to add to your profile. Men are visual. If you look like you’re photo, he’ll be pleasantly surprised and will let you know. Most men are disappointed when you post photos from your Senior Prom, or that are a decade old. Post 3-5 photos, and remember to make one of them a full-length shot. Hint: He might be checking Facebook to see if your online dating photos resemble those you’ve posted on Facebook.

2. Create a Catchy Screen Name.??Stumped as to what’s catchy? You’d be surprised how many people take the random name assigned by the computer. Suzie12389 isn’t as catchy as BalletDancerinNY. If you’re still scratching your head and your favorite name is taken, remember the lyrics to a song that you were singing to in the car. How Music Can Enhance Your Online Dating Profile

3. Be Specific. While browsing through profiles, you might notice that so many just seem to look alike. Who wants to date a plain vanilla when they can have sugar and spice or cookies and cream? Don’t say you like music. Say you like classic rock music and are a Bruce Springsteen fanatic as you grew up in New Jersey. Who knows? You might get invited to a concert. Don’t say you like to travel, but say you loved skiing in Lake Tahoe one winter at a specific ski resort. Get the picture?

4. Leave the Novel at Home. There’s no need to reveal all. Sometimes, less is more. Profiles with over 200 words will be looked over after the first few sentences. It’s best to leave some mystery for your phone conversations and when you meet in real life.

5. Leave the Baggage Behind. Whether it’s an ex-boyfriend, ex-spouse, or ex-boss for that matter, no one wants to hear your dirty laundry. Avoid being the “Debbie Downer” of online dating and write about things you love. Everyone has had a bad date or two, but it’s not worth broadcasting. Ask yourself what you’re the most passionate about and let your potential date know what brings you joy.

At the end of the digital day, online dating is a numbers game. With over 120 million people worldwide logging on looking for love, there’s no better way to fill your date card until you find “the one.”

Weekly Flirt – Online Dating Advice

Science or Luck – The Great Online Dating Debate

By now you?ve probably heard the good news. Online Dating has officially lost its stigma and now ranks second in the U.S. for matchmaking.? Whether you?ve met your dream date or spouse by answering 250 questions on eHarmony or answered some intimate questions on OkCupid, one thing?s for sure, online dating is no longer for the socially challenged. It?s here to stay and is now residing primarily on your mobile phone or iPad.

A group of 5 researchers collected data on the subject to be published in the February issue of the Journal for the Association of Psychological Science. These experts claim that these dating algorithms are nonsense. The report claims that online dating encourages a ?shopping mentality? and that singles are getting too picky with too many choices. Do you agree? Is it just the luck of the draw, or is there some magic to the proprietary methods Internet dating sites use to keep you engaged and active on their site?

Dating algorithms and scientific matching were a subject of heated panel at the recent Internet Dating Conference in Miami, where Dr. Eli J. Finkel, the study?s lead author and an associate professor of social psychology at Northwestern University, said there was no science behind the algorithms. OkCupid?s CEO and co-founder Sam Yagan and Dr. Pepper Schwartz, professor of sociology at the University of Washington in Seattle, who created the Personality Profiler for online dating site Perfect Match, vehemently disagreed. The sites stood by their list of questions to help singles meet better matches, whether through math or science.

At the end of the digital day, online dating has become social dating, and it?s not going away anytime soon.

How do you feel about personality profiles on Chemistry, Perfect Match, and Do you believe you?ll get better matches? Are you finding it hard to commit with too many choices in your inbox?

Your comments are welcome and appreciated.

Dating Advice – Would You Move For Love?

Would You Move for Love?There’s no doubt about it, that online dating allows you to cast a very wide net. You can easily change your zip code to a new city when you’re traveling to meet single men or women to find love online in another city. (Yes, I’ve done this myself).

If you’ve just moved and are the new face in town, chances are you don’t have a social network to rely on. This is where Internet dating can become your best digital friend.

Take for example, our Cyber Love Story couple, Sophie and Greg who met on JDate. Sophie was from Paris. Greg resided in Los Angeles. After 5-months of corresponding online, the two met. They had a whirlwind romance and were married in eight months. Sophie happily relocated to Los Angeles.

On Catholic Match, success couple John and Krystina didn’t let distance get in the way. John had just relocated to Michigan. He had hoped to meet someone close to home, but fell in love with Krystina, who resided in Massachusetts. Eighteen months later, the couple became engaged.

Recently, I was interviewed for an article on for dating advice magazine, Happen. In the article,?Love: Make Your Move?on how to find love online and offline when you move to a new city, I provided some tips for those who are willing to widen their search or have just relocated to a new city.

Online Dating Profile Makeover tips

“You should overhaul your online dating profile every few months. This is especially the case when you’re moving to a new city. Add some recent photos and start your ‘About Me’ section with something like, “I’ve just relocated from Chicago and am new in town.”

Offline Dating Strategy

Don’t forget your off-line strategies, says Julie Spira (, a Los Angeles author, blogger and public speaker. “Introduce yourself to your neighbors and let them know that you’re single,” she suggests. “Find clubs and activities that match your interests and join them.”

Would you move for love? Are you presently in a long-distance relationship with someone you met online?

Mistakes Men Make with Online Dating

Ask the Cyber-Dating ExpertIn a recent interview, I was asked about the top mistakes men make while looking for love online.

Truth be told, most men jump in looking for the new fresh face in the digital world. As a result, there’s a bit of an auction going on, where every man writes to the women who are brand new. What men don’t realize, is that they are in heavy competition. At times, women get overwhelmed when they receive 100 emails a day. Often they won’t write back to anyone.

My advice to the men to increase your chance of success while Internet dating: Write to women whose profiles are at least 3 weeks old. Chances are they will notice your email in their inbox and you’ll have a greater chance of receiving a reply.

As we enter a New Year, it’s always important to take inventory on what has and has not worked for you in your dating life. Listen to the radio interview and enjoy my dating advice.

Wishing you much joy and love in cyberspace, or wherever you may roam.
