In the years since Chummy Club began, I’ve seen a lot of people find love online — while other people have made big mistakes. If you’re looking for true love online, these tips can help you get it. And, they’ll help you through each step of the online dating process — so that you never have to “fly blind”.
1. Be creative — without being dishonest
A creative profile name or a profile picture taken at a creative angle can fetch more attention than a profile that looks just like everyone else’s. However, don’t let your creativity get in the way of the facts. Using a photo of you from 10 years ago is dishonest — not creative.
Same goes for the information in your profile. No one’s going to think you’re creative when you list “Corporate Executive” on your profile when you’re really the Executive Secretary. Instead, they’re going to think you’re a liar — and liars don’t find love online!
2. Break the ice
Once you start talking to a match, throw in some fun questions, like “If you could be any fictional character, who would you be?” Questions like these help you get to know someone, while also seeing if you can have fun with them. Remember, finding love online is all about chemistry. If you and a match can’t have a fun conversation, there’s no “spark” there — and you need to keep looking.
3. Follow your gut
Knowing how to find love online means knowing how to listen to your gut. Generally, you gut can tell pretty quickly whether someone’s right for you. If you’re getting a “funny” feeling about a match, don’t ignore it!
