So you’ve heard all the success stories, now you decide to get in on the action. You did your best to make sure your online profile was interesting and your pictures were attractive. It’s been a whole week, but so far no one has tried to contact you. You start to question your decision to try online dating and begin to weigh your options against going to back to the usual bars and clubs. However, you can’t help but wonder what went wrong…

Not to worry, this is normal for online dating, and these dating tips for women will help you understand the true meaning on dating online.

First of all, nothing went wrong. It is normal to wait a couple of weeks before you see a legitimate response to your profile. Since the people online don’t actually know you, you can’t realistically take this as rejection. Just think about it, there are usually thousands of users on dating websites, and just like you, they are filtering through profiles. Would you rather them contact you for fun, or would you rather hear from them because they have a real interest?

Even when you’re anxious to get the show on the road, the worst mistake you can make is contacting people over and over. This can be a quick turn off, and could possibly make you seem like a stalker. This may seem comical in your eyes, but site developers take this very serious and will even cancel your membership if they receive reports about multiple messages. However, this is a good thing. You never know who is contacting you online, so it’s good that the site has a plan in place to prevent potential offenders.

Another tip is to contact as many people as you find interesting. Contact one to three people at a time could definitely have you waiting weeks for a response. However, if you send out as many as 20 contact initiations, you are likely to receive a response. However, if you don’t, this is normal and there’s no need to take it personal.

If you are one that gets rejection emails, you should consider editing your profile. Be sure to have information about yourself that is interesting and honest. You may want to use a different profile picture as well. If you need help with your profile, consider browsing other profiles for eye catching details. You may also want to take advantage of any advice that the site has to offer when creating your profile.

Remember, there’s only so much the internet can do for you. So don’t give up so easily.
