I just read this article in Cosmopolitan magazine in which it published a "Guide To Online Dating" (for women). Don't ask me what I'm doing reading Cosmopolitan. Bastards =P
The article said some interesting things from a woman's perspective.
"If you think the online dating arena is a bastion of socially inept people who can't master bar-scene trolling, your watch -- Internet dating has actually become cool. "Since the '90s dot-com boom, more people are comfortable on the Web," says Jane Rinzler Buckingham, president of trend-tracking agency Youth Intelligence and a Cosmo contributing editor. "If we use it to find airline tickets and jobs, why not love?" Plus, it's efficient. "You can instantly get the lowdown on dozens of men," says Hannah*, 27, who has used her keyboard to connect with several guys.
Everyone is doing it -- because it works.
Nearly 18 million people visited personals sites in January 2001, according to Internet tracking firm Jupiter Media Metrix. Date.com averages one marriage per week between people who met on its site, and eharmony.com says it has matched more than a million users."
The reason I keep mentioning meeting women online, is because I've found it to be one of the places I meet really emotionally healthy women these days. Successful women tend to be busy and have a life, so online dating seems to be where some turn to, especially if you are in college, such site's like Facebook and Myspace are a goldmine.
As you may realize, a lot of single women read Cosmopolitan Magazine. The magazine took a poll of their female readers on their cyber-dating habits (meeting men online using online dating services). I wanted to pass along the results and I will tell you why after you read the following results:
86% of their online readers has given online dating a try.
41% said they tried it because they were getting frustrated with traditional ways of meeting men.
44% of the women said they would contact a man even it he did not post a picture of himself with his ad.
34% waited three months before meeting their online dates in person.
61% said they found their online dating experience rewarding.
55% think that online dating is a good way to meet men.
74% liked the guys they met online.
36% are in a relationship with someone they met online.
So, what do all these results tell you? You need to get online a meet some single women! This is such an easy way to meet women from the comfort of your home using your computer. This is not a replacement for going out in the field! You have to do that. However, it adds another dimension to your game.
Although I bet most of you that are reading this are Internet savvy. Which means you've probably already tried it with more than likely bad results. Also read this:
"It's ladies' night whenever you log on -- the Web is full of fine guys. MostNow that is a problem...
sites we checked out have a male registration of 65 percent; some even have two
guys for every female. Why? "Men are used to pursuing women, so the Web is just
an extension of that," explains Jeffrey Ullman, founder of the non-Web-based
Greater Relations Worldwide matchmaking service in Los Angeles."
YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING TO STICK OUT!
This is why I keep talking about the Meeting Women Online DVD's. They have heaps of little tricks, techniques and step-by-step plans for getting the most bang for your buck, and give you the WAYS to make your profile an instant chick MAGNET!
