by @ 2:00 am. Filed under In the News

Below are a few online dating articles for your perusal. We can all use a little help in our search for the special someone. These articles will hopefully help you do just that. With tips, suggestions and commentary from the world of online dating. Enjoy!

PROS BOOST ONLINE DATING
This article about the rise of professional profile helpers for online daters, such as profile writing and picture taking. A few tips can be gleaned from the article or you can just scroll to the bottom for a recap of them. Like what types of words: no games, no cheaters etc. can be red flags to readers of your profile who will think that you have been hurt and have yet to get over it. Sites mentioned in the article are:

Twice Bitten, Twice Why?
This is a funny little story. This seems to take place a lot. I have had it happen to me. It is even weirder when they contact you first as in this case and when you reply they are never heard of again. This is strange behavior indeed. Have you had this happen to you?

Lessons of online dating scene
An amusing read with a few tips thrown in leaving with a little hope in the end.

When tall and handsome turns out short and pudgy
In my view online dating is a lot like offline dating, if people are dishonest in general they are going to continue to be dishonest online. What do you think of all the talk of government regulation of online dating? Should full-fledged background checks be standard? Should there be some small oversight? Should they just stay away completely? I would say closer to the later in my opinion would be good. What do you think?

unHaPPilY single
Write up on the book Why You’re Still Single. A guide co-written by a male and a female so you can get both perspectives on the answer. Other books mentioned in the article are:

Online Dating News Articles from the Last Few Weeks

by @ 1:49 am. Filed under In the News

This should get me caught back up so I can start posting weekly Week In Review posts of online dating news articles and related stories that are of interest to online daters. These articles may have been news or new a couple weeks ago when they originally were posted but the information or stories are still helpful. So here are some more online dating news articles. Enjoy!

Singles - Soulmate Surfing
Persistence in online dating as in dating in general is a good thing cause just when you least expect it you will find that special someone. At least I hope so, so reading about others that have only helps me keep the faith. What about you?

Choosing a mate the rational way
Ahh, the business approach to finding that special someone. While going to the extreme of putting together a dating prospectus may be a bit over the top, at least this guy knew what he wanted and set out to get it. A couple of books are mentioned in the article:

Conduct this manhunt indoors
I like the term “indoorsy” that she uses to describe herself. I think I am going to have to start using that in my profile write-ups. As I am more indoorsy than outdoorsy for sure.

A New Column by Dr. Hu Fleming and Amy Andersen - Relationship Help with Two Perspective’s - One Male and One Female
The advice here sounds pretty good. I don’t know about question #1, as I don’t think a strong and successful woman would turn me off as they suggest unless they just really threw it in your face or something. If you are looking for online dating advice specifically then skip to question #2 about faux pas in the world of online dating.

Some Interesting Online Dating Articles from the Last Few Weeks

by @ 6:17 pm. Filed under In the News

I had been posting a regular Week In Review of online dating articles and related stories that you might find of interest. Yet I got a bit behind and now am in the process of catching up. These articles may have been news or new a few weeks ago when they originally were posted but the information or stories are still relevant. So here are some more online dating articles from the last few weeks that I found to be of interest or that had some good tips. Enjoy!

Pop-Culture has Killed Love
While politically this site is on the other side of the political spectrum from me, this article was pretty good. It talks about how pop culture and superficiality is drowning out the chances of real relationships and love. Also about how as online daters we take all the information posted about some one but only really seem to care about their picture. Quite interesting how this is similar in perspective to the article I posted about previously by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

Web site helps with dating dilemmas
An article about two women from Chicago that started an online dating advice business called econfidant.com. Scroll to the bottom of the article for a few tips to help you in your search. The best being:

A good mate is different from a good date. “If you think of good looks and having a fun time and someone who’s funny, that kind of makes a good date,” says Begelman.

What do you think of those ideas? Would you pay for online help in your dating adventures?

One man’s brave experiment in online dating
A little online dating levity in regards to communicating with matches to take the edge off. Funny how even though they are over the top one or more will still seem very familiar too you.

The joys of Internet dating
An advice columnist answers the following:

I’ve heard so many unpleasant stories about trying to meet someone on the Internet that I’m reluctant to try it. Then there’s the perception that it’s mostly for losers.

And how do you handle meeting someone who totally misrepresents who they are? Suppose you don’t like a person from the first moment you see them?

The advice sounds pretty good to me, what did you think?

Advertising vehicle
Now that is an interesting approach to meeting someone.

Online dating success story
News story from WKYC News. Watch or read the story. Always good to hear about a success story as many more of the stories on the downside of online dating seem to get more airtime or column space.

Single mom faces unique challenges
Are you a single mother looking to get back in the dating game then you might find this article to be of some help.

Some More Interesting Online Dating Articles Over the Last Few Months

by @ 3:06 am. Filed under In the News

I had been posting a regular Week In Review of online dating articles and related stories that you might find of interest. Yet I got a bit behind and now am in the process of catching up. These articles may have been news or new a few weeks ago when they originally were posted but the information or stories are still relevant. So here are some more online dating articles from the last few months that I found to be of interest or that had some good tips. Enjoy!

Singles: Knowing who you are and what you want comes first

Three tips that are actually pretty obvious but we could all use a little reminder from time to time. As for the third of idea of dating, dating and dating some more just remember to give each one a chance and don’t be so quick to judge. You’ll end up just dating a lot and never making any connections with people. Which is what we all are looking for.

Dating Web sites now trying to prevent divorce

Interesting story on how online dating sites like Match.com are starting to look at offering services for married people. Most of the big online dating sites seem to be touting their marriages so if those marriages start falling apart it is not good for business. The main take away from this story is that you should be honest in your profile as that looks to be the biggest reason relationships falter down the line is because of misrepresentations upfront.

With honesty, patience, online dating can work

This article is by a man that believes he has found his soul mate on eHarmony. Reading about others success gives us all hope that success in the world of online dating will come our way one day.

Old dating rules are being broken in wake of Internet romance revolution

Skip to the bottom of the article if you just want to know what the old rules that should be broken are.

ISO Romance, One Writer Tries the Buy-the-Book Approach

Columnist Rachel Machacek takes a look at five books about dating in an attempt to change her relationship luck. They were:

Find out which one she found most useful. Have you read any of the above? What did you think?
