If you’re reading this article then you are probably wanting to know how to meet women online, right? Well before I give you some tips and advice I want to make it perfectly clear that you can in fact meet them. So let’s look at some numbers. There is an estimated 40 million people in America using online dating sites. If you assume half of those are men that still leaves 20 million women, divide that by fifty states and you get an average of 40 THOUSAND women per state looking for men! Now this might not be true for every state as some have larger populations and therefore more women looking, but still you should see a good number of potential girlfriends out there! Of course, you have the competition of all the other men, but most of them are going about things all wrong! With the right techniques you can easily make your dating profile seem much more appealing to the ladies then 90% of the other ones they see every day.
The first thing you need to keep in mind is to be honest. I don’t care if you are just creating your profile or have been trying, and failing, for awhile now, be honest. If you lie about yourself in order to be more appealing, guess what? Sooner or later the girl is bound to find out! Just tell the truth. If your overweight admit it and put your actual weight or body type down on your profile. You might get more responses online from women if you embellish the truth, but if you ever hope to meet in person she is obviously going to see the real you. Most men think they can make the girl love there personality so that she won’t mind their faults, the truth is when a woman finds out that you lied to her about one thing she is going to assume you have lied to her about everything! Plus, by being up front about these things you weed out the more shallow women who are only worried about physical appearance, leaving you with women who are more apt to make a good girl friend. Another benefit is that you might find that women are looking for a guy just like you. If your the type of guy who like to go to mega-con every year and you collect comic books then put that in your interests section. Believe it or not there are women who are into those same things!
Another thing to keep in mind when you want to meet women online is your online reputation outside of your dating profile. A MSNBC poll found that 43% of people, both men AND women preform a Google search on people before going out with them. So even if you have the perfect dating profile that makes you seem like a gentleman (or tough guy if that is what your going for) there is a good chance that the girl is going to look up your Facebook or Twitter account to find out the truth. So make sure that there isn’t anything on there that you wouldn’t want them to see.
One more piece of advice for how to meet women online, that MSNBC poll also had this interesting fact in it: 63% of married couples claim to have met each other through a friend. Stop and think about that for a minuet. The majority of people who are married didn’t meet on a dating site or in a bar, they weren’t high school sweethearts or co-workers. They met because a friend introduced them. Seems kind of old school right?? Well take that super simple formula and add in modern technology. How much attention to you pay to the friends list of you Facebook friends? Chances are if you take the time to skim through them you might very well find a few women who have a single status. Then with any luck you might be able to get your friend to introduce you!
