TRANSCRIPT: Today’s question is: I really want to try online dating but I’m not really having much luck.
Well here’s the first thing you need to know before, I mean you’re actually doing it, but before you do online dating is it’s not the same as dating people who you’re in person with. There are a lot of things that are the same about it. They kind of say things about themselves that might be kind of true but not really true because they want somebody to like them.
Like, you know, you’re meeting people, you’re kind of presenting yourself - here’s who I am, wanting to know who they are, but there is, in the structure of being online you actually don’t get that feeling you get with somebody in person. And we, you know, as women especially we have that intuition, we can pick things up, there are those nuances. So right from the get-go you’re dealing with, not lies, but kind of some half-truths. Now here’s what I found really works about online dating is if you are willing to tell the truth about yourself.
If you’re willing to tell the truth about yourself you are going to then naturally attract somebody who they want to tell you the truth about them, and then you’re off to a good start.
of online dating, but has found it to be a totally frustrating experience? You contact the women you’re interested in…but you never seem to make contact with them.
Maybe you’re viewing women’s profiles and they don’t view yours. Maybe you get LOTS of emails from women — except they’re all from women you’re attracted to or you are just not getting the kind of responses you want.
Maybe you’re making contact with women you THINK are going to be great only to find out they’re not at all who they represent themselves to be. Maybe you exchange an email or two with women, but you can’t seem to hold their interest long enough to get the chance to get them on the phone or meet them in person.
I mean, why is it SO HARD to meet those beautiful women online?
And what is it that guys who ARE meeting those women have that you don’t? What if I told you that the reason the vast majority of guys aren’t successful in meeting women they want online is two-fold: they don’t understand how women are wired, and they don’t know the right things to do to attract those women.
