Autumn is here, which means there's no better time to restart
your online dating endeavours with a spring in your virtual
You may well be mourning the end of summer (such as it was) and
beginning to feel the weight of impending winter, but unlike the
sinister sounding motto of House Stark in Game of Thrones, winter
is actually the busiest, happiest time in online dating, when
hoards of dissatisfied singles hit the dating sites in search of
Ride that wave and you could be well on your way to finding what
you're after - there'll be lots of new faces appearing over the
next few months.
Here are three simple things you can do to make sure you're
ready for the onslaught.
Refresh your profile pictures
Summer may have been a bit crap weather-wise, but let's face it,
this is the best we're going to get. Over the summer we tend to be
fitter, happier and healthier and we go on holidays, which means
you should have a whole load of new pictures to show off your best
side to your potential partners.
Yes, pictures are certainly not everything, especially not on
DivaDate, but they do help. If nothing else, having a picture you
like on your profile makes you feel more confident, which means
you'll be more likely to actively seek out women to contact.
This is a good thing to do on dating sites even if you just set
up a free profile to test the water.
Refresh your profile
While you're still flying high on the joys of summer, it's time
to take a look at the stuff you've written and see if it's as
upbeat and attractive as you'd like it to be. If there's one thing
people seek out in the dreary winter months it's someone who can
bring them a sense of optimism and fun and you can totally be that
So write about your fun times now, while everything is still
fresh in your mind.
Get back into the dating habit
Summer is traditionally a slower time on dating sites, because
nobody wants to spend too much time in front of the computer when
they could be going out with friends till late. When we're busy
having fun in the sun with our social circle, going out on mystery
dates may not seem quite as important.
Now, while the weather's not completely awful, is the time to
get back into the dating habit, so that if you don't find anyone by
winter, you'll be used to actively searching and dating and won't
be tempted to become a shut in.
So start allowing yourself time to search sites, contact women
and go on dates, at least once a week if you're busy, more if you
can afford the time and want to be more active. Make it casual,
make it fun, make it so it's an enjoyable experience for you even
if nothing happens.
By the time winter comes, you want to be primed for making the
most of the bounty.
