The dating scene is not what it used to be 10, 15, 20 years ago. The online dating world has exploded in the new digital era and now many people discover each other online instead of at the bar, grocery store, or just out and about. The fact is that now people are consumed by their digital devices and either always on the phone wherever they go, texting, and checking email, never looking up to meet the people around them. This is commonplace, so having an online profile makes finding women a digital task. This might be intuitive for those growing up in the digital dating world; however, those guys who are recently divorced after 10, 15, 20 plus years of marriage are at an extreme disadvantage when it comes to dating.
Guys married for a decade or more remember a time when meeting women was a real experience face to face, instead of a profile search. The women were also more receptive to meeting men directly instead of a vetting process by reading their profile. The truth is that times have changed and in order to meet new women online dating needs to be a part of the mix. It is important that divorced men, ready to date, feel comfortable to write about themselves and engage users on a dating website. Here are a few tips to get started.
1. What are you looking for? There are different dating websites for different purposes. Looking for a long term relationship, check out match.com; however, a quick date or one night stand then plentyoffish.com is perfect. There are also dating sites that are religious focused or geared to a specific ethnicity.
2. Profile Name – You need to create a name that it fun and tells something about your personality. This never existed in the real world experience. The key is for it to be quick and easy to remember. For example, if you have blue eyes, try blueyezz45.
3. Post single pics – Don’t post pictures with your ex or images of you with kids or other women. Try to find photos that just feature you. Women don’t like to see anyone else in the photos. Think about it, when you meet a woman in real life there’s never anyone else under your arm.
4. Be honest – You will eventually meet these women, so if you lie in your profile it’s there in writing. Keep it easy to read and to the point. Share fun things about your life, but don’t reveal all your cards.
This is a new world of meeting women and starting relationships. It’s important to recognize this shift and to get ready to learn new things – your social life depends on it.
