How to Get More Messages with Online Dating
Whether you’re looking for a friend, date or intimate encounter, the online dating world is the best place to find it. And once you’ve joined the online dating community, you can speed-up the process of meeting Mr. or Mrs.Right (or even Mr. or Mrs.Right Now) with these tips on how to get more messages with online dating:
Take a Great Profile Picture
The first thing that’s going to catch someone’s eye is your profile picture. Make it worth the look with these three don’ts to posting a great profile picture: don’t post a picture of you and your friends, don’t post a picture of a picture and don’t post an out-dated picture of yourself. Follow these three rules and you’ll be one step closer to getting more messages.
Have a Strong Username
The next thing a person will notice is your username. Your username should be legible, free of numbers and well, unique. You want a person to be able to read your username without difficulty, so that it doesn’t distract them from your profile. Numbers imply that your preferred username is taken and subtracts from the appeal of your profile. You absolutely need to have a character trait, clever word play or even a bit of humor in your username to separate you from the rest.

Watch Your Grammar!
Proper grammar plays a huge role in your credibility as an intelligent individual. Intelligence is the most attractive character trait to both men and women. And unintelligence is the biggest turn-off. Don’t let a misspelled word be the reason for your lonely inbox.
Complete Your Profile
One neglected section could mean the difference between someone messaging you and someone moving onto the next profile; and that’s not a risk you should be willing to take. Make sure you fill-out every section of your online dating profile. Pay extra attention to your “About Me” section. Include a short description of who you are, who you’re looking for and what you’re interested in.
Sometimes you’ve got to give in order to receive. So if you spot a profile you love, don’t hesitate to send that person a message! Keep in mind that a message should be conversational. You don’t want to overwhelm someone with your first message. So keep it short, fun and casual to increase your odds of receiving a response.
