Are you in the Christmas spirit yet?
Let me ask you a few questions:
- Does this time of year make you happy or sad?
- Do you feel festive and the happiness of the holidays flowing through your body or do you feel loneliness gaining on you?
- Will you let the opportunities to meet new people pass you by, again?
Friendliness and kindness are the personal attributes that we should exercise all year long and yet this time of year usually shows us how lacking our efforts have been.
Luckily, with the pervasiveness of online dating, meeting people is just a couple of clicks away.
Technology can fill in the gaps of our efforts and meeting people, even someone special, is easier than ever.
Forget the good-intentioned but extremely rude questions about why you’re still single (you know you’ll be asked a few times before the end of the year), look to your computer and start dating for real.

The search of members in your selected online dating service is likely the most important part (next to completing your profile) of your online dating adventure.
Compatibility comes in many flavors and really is beyond the simple physical characteristics of someone. Sense of humor, style of talking, choice of clothing all contribute to the “compatibility scale” that makes someone a god match for you.
Consider all the search options, and not using too narrow of choices, to find your best results.

Three things you must do to make yourself more successful at any online dating service.
Honesty: Many people make the mistake that online dating is just a fantasy experience, not fully realizing that eventually what they say about themselves online needs to match up with what the people they will meet in the real world meet to avoid disappointment.
High Expectations: We are sold the “meet your perfect match” experience which often is not an attainable goal. Not because your perfect match isn’t out there but because you’re looking for the 100% match not the 70% match that allows you the true experience we find in the real world. Dating is part mystery, finding things out about a person to share and learn to love, when possible. Looking only for people who are a perfect match with your ideals will only lead to dating disillusion.
Have Perseverance: There are three things most definitely true in life: death, taxes and you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince (or princess). Online dating mirrors life in that not too much happens when we expect it to happen, but when we are least expecting love, it happens. Take your time and enjoy the single dating life and you’ll enjoy life a lot more than if you act and look desperate.
