KNOW THE DIFFERENCES OF DATING AND MATCHMAKING
This is quoted from a conversation with Robert Bentsen, VP of Lisa Bentsen's Singles Search
"Most of the stuff out on the web is what I call personals. That is, they are databases where you can "go get" what you are looking for. There is no screening and no cross-matching. Really, they consume a lot of time and effort and produce little. Yet, they are very popular because singles do not really know the differences. Dating services do a little better in that if they are legitimate, they attempt to match people up who at least have something in common. True matchmaking services such as ours, actually match for compatibility and then cross-match to ensure that both parties needs are met and at a percent greater than 60. Many of the so called dating and matchmaking services do not do that. There needs to be a distinction made so that the single can truly choose what type of service he wants. We try to educate our visitors (Dating or Mating and Matchmaker for Me)."

  • READ PLENTY OF ADS BEFORE YOU WRITE YOUR OWN
    It is easy to see what works and what doesn't when you start reading what is being written out there. Read the men's and women's ad's. Use the things that attract you to a certain type of ad and adjust it for yourself. Stay away from what seems horrible to you. The words you use is the FIRST IMPRESSION that you'll make.

  • TRY BEFORE YOU BUY
    Any personals site worthwhile will be happy to prove it to you. Browse the ads, place your own ad, search for the real type of person that you want in your life. When you have found enough people that you are interested in meeting, join the club. Don't limit yourself to one club. You don't shop in only one store, don't limit your choices here either. Know that eventually you'll have to pay for a singles service, but don't base your choice on price alone, find a service that has plenty of members that you'd like to trade messages with and jump in!

  • SIGN UP USING AN E-MAIL ALIAS
    Protect yourself, always! Starting right from the beginning, you should sign-up for an e-mail alias, and use it when you sign up for the singles service. Use it when you start corresponding outside of the club with your potential date too. Be sure to choose a sensible name, "wildgirl@dateme.com" or "hornyguy@dateme.com" will only get you in trouble. (Sign-up now, the form will pop up in a new window.)

  • A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
    Use the words! Again we're talking security here. A smiley face, a picture of your car or pet will get noticed too. And your ad still gets "elevated status" by having a picture with it (many people only browse ads with pictures). When you get past the beginning e-mails with your new friend, then is the time to trade pictures. But please be aware that some sites frown on this, so check with the sites rules about including an image other than your own.

  • DO NOT LIMIT YOURSELF BY LOCATION
    We live in a portable world! Destiny might just bring together the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans for you. Do not deny yourself the opportunity of meeting the right person just because they do not live within 100 miles of you.

  • HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY
    Your ad is getting lots of responses, great! When it comes time to meet face to face, you don't want to be apologizing or making excuses for the untruths that you told. Honesty attracts honest people. Stick with your instincts too. If you feel that who you are writing and chatting to isn't being truthful, bail out while the waves are still small.

  • KEEP AN OPEN MIND
    Meeting people always involves new experiences, and this is just as true on-line. Download a contact program, such as ICQ, and stay in constant touch on-line. With a program like this, you could both watch a classic movie at www.NBCI.com, and even talk all the way through it, just like kids!

  • REPLY TO MANY ADS
    Your response to someone's ad or profile should be well thought out and not pushy. And be one e-mail long, do NOT send not several e-mails before you get a reply, it will make you seem desperate and harassing. Wait for the person to answer you back, and continue replying to other ads, do not send a second e-mail until you receive a reply to the first. Many people do not delete their ads or profiles once they no longer have a need to use the service, so you may be talking to someone that isn't even there!

  • DO NOT GIVE UP
    Getting responses from the right person can be hard, don't give up. Reword your ad, try a new site, stay friendly. If you set a time limit on yourself, your pessimism will show through. Don't rush into anything!
