New online dating service
So don’t be disappointed if all the cute guys or girls are not knocking on your door.
You must be proactive, friendly and approachable but I found the atmosphere positive and upbeat.
Try and be a little more open minded, a little less defensive and less focused on looks.
We live in a very critical society and scrolling through a directory of photos is not helping matters.
Try and look passed the photo and try to read into what people say about themselves with an open mind 'don't be so critical'. Chatting or engaging with people in far away (often exotic) places is only asking for trouble.
Generally people not paying for a service are not going to take it as serious.
I found if you spend the time to set-up a comprehensive profile and (as with all dating sites) add quality pictures it is money well spent.
I was particularly impressed with the amount of people taking this online dating thing so seriously with lots of comprehensive local profiles to choose from with pic, interests etc.
