How to get the best results with SpeedDater Online Picture tips
1. Make sure you upload a photograph! Profiles with photographs get over seven times as much interest as ones
which don't and many people will not respond to profiles that do not have photographs.
2. Make sure it's a recent photograph where you look your best. Photos taken in passport booths or
photographs taken with mobile phones are not ideal.
3. Consider getting professional photographs done or at least get a friend to take some photos of you
with a good quality digital camera and pick the best three to upload.
4. A picture of you with an ex-boyfriend or girl-friend is a definite no no.
5. Make sure people can clearly see your face in your main picture and don't wear sunglasses - it makes you look like you have something to hide.
6. Don't appear semi-naked in your main picture. It sends out the wrong messages.
7. If you're really not prepared to post your picture you need to be proactive. That means sending flirts (not waiting to receive them) and being prepared to email or text pictures to people you start chatting to online.
1. Fill in all the text fields in the profiles section.
2. Take the time to think about what you write. It will make a big difference to the response you get.
3. Make sure that everything you write is grammatically accurate and correctly spelt.
4. Take the advice of Evan Marc Katz, author of I Can't Believe I'm Buying This Book: A Commonsense Guide to Successful Internet Dating. 'Be sincere and honest. Write like you talk. Show your personality. If you make jokes, make them tasteful, self-deprecating or sarcastic, and do so with caution. Figure out what makes you different from everyone else, and use it to your advantage. Again, stay away from generic adjectives and focus more on proper nouns and stories. If you're going to be wordy, have something interesting to say. Stay consistently positive and confident without seeming annoying and arrogant. Be proud of who you are
Safety guidelines for using SpeedDater Online.
1. Don't give out personal details such as your name, phone number, address or a personal description to people you chat to on the Internet until you are sure about them.
2. If you decide to go on a date, never give personal details such as your address or surname. It is possible for address details to be obtained through your telephone number, so again be very guarded about giving out this information. Always arrange to meet in a busy public place (a Speed dating event is ideal for a first meeting)
3. If you're concerned in any way, take a friend along, at least at the beginning, to meet your date. And ask the friend to meet up with you again at a prearranged time. Work out a signal with your friend to indicate whether you would prefer that he or she stay with you.
4. If you're not with a friend, tell someone where you are going, who with (include the person's name and any other details you may have) and when
