Online Dating Should Be Fun

Published May 1, 2015

Scary. Weird. Different. These, and others similar to it, are all words people have used in their descriptions of their experiences in online dating before they really grasp how to approach it and how to make it work for them. Trust our expert opinion that online dating should be a fun, fulfilling experience. You should be bubbling over with anticipation for the end of your day to arrive so that you can engage in the possibly life-changing experience. Your expectations should trump your fears and anxiety about the whole process and propel you forward. Below are 3 things you can do to make online dating a fun experience and even involve your friends in the process to help you narrow down the infinite choices of potential dates.

3 Things You Can Do to Make Online Dating Fun

  1. Have your friends help you develop an interesting way to eliminate definite no-go dates. For instance, maybe you can implement a rule that excludes anyone who has Vanilla Ice listed as their all-time favorite rapper. Or maybe a requirement is that they are able to recite the lyrics to The Fresh Prince of Belair on cue. Whatever the criteria, make it fun and different. Don’t get overly critical, but definitely pick something you wouldn’t want in a potential date. (Disclaimer to all Vanilla Ice fans)
  2. Engage in conversation with people whom you may not initially be interested in based on their profile. At Profiles Made Perfect, we understand the challenges people face in writing their online dating profiles. Oftentimes people aren’t the William Shakespeares of profile creation. Give them a shot and chat. You never know what you could be missing.
  3. Let your friends pick your date. This tip requires a great deal of trust between you and your friends. How well do you think they know you and what you would desire in a potential suitor? Just once, close your eyes and fall backwards so to speak. Eliminate yourself from the process and let them set you up. Give them complete control. Again, I only suggest close friends for this one.

These are just a few quick tips on making online dating fun. Try them out and let us know how it went at Profiles Made Perfect.
