Why You’re Not Receiving More Replies to Your Online Dating Profile

So you’ve signed up for an online dating, filled out your profile and uploaded a profile picture. But you’re not getting many messages and little to no replies. What the heck? This article’s all about why you’re not receiving more replies to your online dating profile and how to kick up your interest today.

The Other Person Isn’t a Paid Subscriber

First of all, it’s important to understand how most online dating websites work. If someone’s using a free trial or hasn’t paid for the service, they might not be able to send or reply to messages. And that makes total sense, because why should you choose to pay for a service when someone else expects the same level of service for free? To keep things fair, most online dating sites require that both parties be active, paying members in order to communicate.

Just Friends or Something More? 6 Signs She Really Likes You

This one’s for all the guys out there who aren’t sure whether or not a girl is into you. Maybe you’re coworkers. Maybe you’re friends. Whatever the case may be, this post should help you start seeing the signs she really likes you… or realize you really are just friends.

1. She’s Touchy-Feely With You

Women are naturally more affectionate than men, but keep an eye out to see if she’s extra touchy-feely when it comes to you. Does she seem to create situations or make excuses so she can stand, sit or be close to you? Does she hug you both “hello” and “goodbye” when everyone else just waves or gives the typical nod greeting? If you find she’s touchy-feely with you, more than other people are, there’s a good chance that she may be interested in something more than friendship. On the other hand, you should continue to read the other signs just in case she’s just the hugging type.

4 Major Online Dating Mistakes You Might be Making

It can be tempting to go a little overboard when it comes to your online dating profile. Then, it can be even more tempting to take things from “sort of true” to “definitely not true” when it comes time to message a hot match. These are just two online dating mistakes that could a) leave you unsuccessful and b) seriously deter great, high quality matches. 

With online dating, honesty and clarity matter. You’re putting yourself out there and trying to meet someone amazing. It’s important to remember that your “someone amazing” is doing the same… and they don’t want to waste time on a profile filled with fibs, or messaging someone who tends to share bigger-than-life tall tales.

6 Reasons Why Women Love Online Dating

PEW Research states that 1 in 5 American adults between the ages of 25 and 34 have used online dating at some point. That’s a lot of people! Each year the percentage of people using online dating grows more and more. So, why the popularity? In this post, we’re looking specifically at women. Here are 6 reasons why women love online dating.

1. Control

In the offline world, it can be incredibly difficult to control the situation. If a man approaches a woman at a club, it’s not as easy as hitting a “block” button to make him disappear. Instead, she might find herself searching for some way to get out of the conversation and away from the guy she’s definitely not interested in. Let’s say there’s a man she is interested in but she doesn’t quite know what to say. In the offline world, she can’t just stand there and not say “hello” or reply to his question – no matter how nervous she might be.

How to Ditch a Fizzling Online Dating Match

You signed up for online dating (hopefully Lavalife!) and came across a profile that catches your eye. After exchanging some messages and going back-and-forth, you’ve now decided that the spark just isn’t there. But, you’re not sure how to ditch your fizzling online dating match without causing hurt feelings. Well, friend, here’s how to get out of the situation. It comes down to being upfront, honest and confident in your approach.

Depending on how long you’ve been in communication, and exactly how far your communication has gone, you’ll probably want to write more (or less) in your departing message. Since you met online and have been exchanging messages online (presumably, at least) it’s completely fine to end the relationship in the same fashion. If you’ve met offline or have been talking on the phone, however, your match might be deserving of a slightly more thorough explanation than a quick IM.
