Online Lesbian Dating Tips for Busy
By Amy Derby
Prepare yourself for the process before you get started. For any dating service to
be successful, you will have to be able to describe who you are and what you are looking for. The more honest and
specific you can be about yourself and the kind of person you seek, the better your chances of meeting a compatible
woman without wasting your time on a lot of unsuitable matches.
Being very honest with yourself, take some time to make a list of your best
qualities and personality traits. The more specific you can be the better. For example, saying you are athletic and
have a great sense of humor does not say much about you. Do you jog every day? Run marathons? Play tennis? Do you
enjoy going to comedy clubs or love Marx Brothers movies? Or are you looking for a partner with a dry wit?
Remember, the more detail you give, and the more original you are, the better your chances. Virtually every other
woman on every other dating site will describe herself as smart, sexy and sophisticated. Strive to stand
Examine your true interests. Many people say they like long walks on the beach,
but how many people really spend their time walking on the beach? Be original, and be realistic. You might want to
go on an Alaskan cruise some day, but if you know you will not have the time to take such a cruise anywhere in the
foreseeable future, leave this off your list. Ideally, you want to meet someone who enjoys doing the same things
you do, so the things you list should primarily be things you already enjoy doing regularly.
Do not advertise your shortcomings or lie to mask things you are not proud of. Do
not say you are a workaholic who does not really have time for a relationship but hopes to meet someone anyway.
Either commit or forget about it. If you do not want to say you are a smoker, then leave it off your list
completely. Do not say you are a light smoker but plan on quitting unless you mean it. Do not say you work out five
times per week if your gym membership expired two years ago. What if you meet someone who is hoping, based on your
ad, that the two of you can work out together? Dishonestly will only prolong the process of meeting someone truly
compatible for a lasting relationship.
Be as specific as possible in describing your ideal mate. If you write a generic
ad that says you want someone who is financially stable, enjoys her career, loves to laugh and is looking for a
long term relationship, you have not excluded very many women. Unless you want to spend every night dating a new
woman until you meet your perfect match, get into the details in your ad.
Once you have chosen an online dating service, have a friend look over your ad
before you post it. Asking a friend for honest feedback on what you have written will help you see whether or not
you have accurately represented yourself. Also, get someone to take a nice photograph of you. A lot of busy women
will skim through dating sites looking at photos alone, so you want your picture to be of good quality. You also
want your photograph to be recent, not one from ten years ago.
After your ad is posted, be prepared to spend at least a few hours each week
reviewing responses. Whether you spend time replying by email or simply arrange for a meeting with each woman that
interests you is up to you. Either way, you will be on your way to finding the woman you want. Enjoy the
