|"Profilehelper was very professional and friendly while helping me. They told me about the do’s and don't to use, and made me promise not to do certain things. Now I just have to sit back and wait for the right E-mails to come in. "
|"My consultant was friendly, extremely helpful and very professional. I immediately recognized the recommendations in the areas I was looking for. I've been a member on several dating websites and was never too enthused because I didn't feel like my profile was attracting the kind of person I was really looking for. This time, I think I have it "made" in that department. "
Advantages of Online Personals
Online personals are the internet's equivalent of a singles bar with personality.
At there most basic level online personals are giant databases of people's pictures
and backgrounds that you can scan through like you would scan the faces at a bar.
There are a lot of advantages to trying online personals compared to a singles bar.
First of all it is convenient. The places you will normally go to meet people are
only available to you at certain times and every place you go may only have one or
two hundred people of the opposite sex for you to pick through. With online personals
all you need is an internet connection and the ability to read. The sites are open
24-7 and are filled with thousands if not millions more people than you would have
met if you went out for the evening.
Secondly is attire. When you go to a bar you've got to look sharp as Joe Jackson
used to say. If you don't look just right when your eyes meet up with those of the
babe or beau at a bar, you can forget about the wedding, hell, you won't even make
it to the first date. For online personals you don't need make up or cologne
and best of all, you can wear whatever you like. You can even be naked if you want,
but if it's hot out and your computer chair is leather, you may want to at least throw
on some underwear.
One of the biggest advantages that people think of when they go into online personals
is that you no longer have that moment of terror where you slowly approach that person
who has caught your eye in hopes that they might see in you what you saw in them and
not shoot you down like a wounded duck. This is true, to a point. You don't have to
walk up to someone and ask them out through online personals. You have the personal
barrier of email in-between you. This is great if you are a little low in confidence,
but it can backfire on you. Many people put up a personals profile and wait for people
to contact them. It can be a much greater rejection when millions of people decide
not to email you compared to striking out once or twice in person. Also if you are
sending emails to people on your favorite online personals site, you have to remember
that the need for tact is not a necessity on the net. While in the real world a person
may shoot you down and say thanks but no thanks, or possibly something less tactful,
their attitude on an online personals site may be to just delete your message without replying,
leaving you hanging and with no feedback from them at all.
