Cyber Dating Tips for Valentine’s Day

Cyber Dating Tips for Valentine's

Welcome to February. It’s officially the month of love.

If you are feeling the pressure, don’t fret. Here are some online dating tips to help you get through the month of February.

How many Valentine’s Dates Should You Have?

Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year. In addition, Monday is a legal holiday in the U.S. so it becomes a three day weekend for many. Does that mean that you should have three dates on your calendar if you are single?

I happen to believe that three is a lucky number. If you aren’t in an exclusive relationship and your online dating profile is still up, there’s no reason NOT to ask three women out or accept more than one invitation over the course of the weekend.

Your Online Dating Profile

If your online dating profile is still active and you have your date(s) lined up for the weekend, I suggest that you don’t visit your online dating site in the days leading up to Valentine’s. It might take the romance out of your date if he or she notices your activity level.

Dine in, or Dine Out

Make sure you make your dining reservations early. Some of the best restaurants get booked in full in January. If you can’t get a restaurant reservation, dining at home with take-out food on fine china by candlelight makes a nice alternative to expensive dining. If you don’t have time to call around, go to to see what’s available in your neighborhood and price range.

Valentine’s Gift Giving

When it comes to gift-giving on Valentine’s Day, it can be a bit tricky. Being over extravagant early on in your relationship might scare someone away.

If you are wondering what kind of gift you should give your date, ?stop by your local Hallmark store and pick up an appropriate card for your Valentine and a box of chocolate. One simple rose for her will make a nice addition to the evening. For the man in your life, stop by Whole Foods and pick up a chocolate lollypop that says, “You’re My Hero” for $4.00. You’ll find them both melting in your arms. If your relationship is new, find a card that is witty and humorous.

If you have moved into an exclusive relationship and want to impress him or her, stop by Tiffany & Co. where they have a selection of Valentine’s Gifts. Their Elsa Peretti? Color by the Yard bracelet in sterling silver with a pink sapphire?is priced at $175. They have a full page of gifts for under $100. For him,?Engine-turned oval cuff links in sterling silver are priced at $150.

The Morning After

Take advantage of the holiday if you can. If your date involves an overnight stay, having breakfast in bed together will be a nice way to end the weekend, but only if you aren’t book for a lunch date with another suitor.

Still Dateless?

If Valentine’s arrives and you don’t have a date, don’t fret. There’s nothing worse than pretending to enjoy a very expensive evening. During the daytime if you are in Los Angeles, I will be speaking along with Dr. Pat Allen, author of “Getting to I Do” at The Second Sunday Series of An Empowered Woman. For the evening, find another single friend and go to a movie or stay in and read a book. If there are any singles events in your area, sign up and meet other singles. It’s not the end of the world and before you know it, spring fever will be in season.

Are the sounds of Christmas Carols getting you down? Is your dreidel not spinning this year?

Here are some online dating tips and some advice to cheer up the holiday blues and help singles make the best of the holiday season.

Cyber-Dating Tip #1. ?GET A NEW LOOK. ?Try changing your hairstyle, go shopping in your closet, and jump out of your comfort zone and put on that leopard dress.

Cyber-Dating Tip #2. ?UPLOAD NEW PHOTOS. ?Why wait until the New Year to show off your new look. It?s time to get some professional photos taken, and upload them to your online dating profile. ?Refresh your look in the eyes of those who will be searching for you.

Cyber-Dating Tip #3. IT?S ALL ABOUT COLOR. There?s a reason Santa is wears red for the holidays. You just can?t miss him. Put away the little black dress until after New Year?s and try wearing bright colors such as red, blue, gold, or ones that will make you shine.

Cyber-Dating Tip #4. JOIN AN ONLINE DATING SITE. If you are not online now or think you should wait until the holidays are over, you may be missing out on meeting that special someone or being invited to a holiday party. ?The period from now through Valentine?s Day is when singles are joining online dating sites in record numbers, some for the very first time.

Cyber-Dating Tip #5. CHANGE YOUR SCREEN NAME. Is your profile a bit stale? Perhaps it?s time for an online face-lift. Change your screen name to one that is more fun and flirty. Someone who may have glanced over your profile during their last login may notice you this time around.

Cyber-Dating Tip #6. GO TO SINGLES EVENTS. ?There are plenty of singles events in every town. Check your emails and local newspapers for the schedules. For Jewish singles, the annual Matzo Ball party is held in 11 cities on December 24th. The Ball is the nation’s largest Jewish singles event in the country, and don’t forget is filled with low-pressure events. Other dating and matchmaking services have dinner parties and dances just for the holidays. Accept all invitations and you just might end up kissing under the mistletoe.

Cyber-Dating Tip #7. GRAB YOUR SINGLE FRIENDS. ?If you are dating online now, consider each date as someone who can expand your social network. ?Invite them to a casual party and ask them to bring a single friend. You might not fall in love over coffee or lunch, but what if they just happened to have a friend……?
