October 31st 2014 by .

online dating catchAcross the Internet, you can find plenty of articles that claim to know exactly what men want, or to have figured out the secret to getting any woman. These articles on Online Dating Sites are usually filled with corny, vague advice like, ‘Just be yourself’ or, ‘be confident’. These sorts of tips lack the drive needed to actually accomplish the art of becoming a good catch. So, what does it really take? What sorts of things attract the opposite sex? Today, we’ll be looking at some tried and tested methods you can start using right away… minus all the silliness and the cheap tricks. 

1. Don’t suck up all the air
One of the biggest complaints you’ll hear from people of either sex is that it’s really boring when someone monopolises the entire conversation. Everything has to be all about them.

5 Online Dating Profiles That Shouldn’t Have Worked… But Did!

1. The Waffler

Arthur is a 5’10”, 41 year-old New Yorker. His dating profile is written in a very casual chatty style that really should not have worked effectively – yet it did! While the profile seemed to waffle on charmingly about not very much, in actual fact it managed to give the reader a good and comprehensive overview of his likes and dislikes while very clearly demonstrating his fun-loving personality. He manages to include a mention of his French background without making a huge statement of nationality. He seems to rubbish being French at first ‘I must confess I’m French – I know… nobody’s perfect’ but finishes by saying ‘If you think that Paris is the most beautiful city in the world, I think you should tell our parents to get ready for the wedding’ showing a clear fondness for the capital city of his homeland. He also, although he may not have intended this, shows the importance of family and traditional values with his mention of weddings and parents.If you opt for this friendly style of writing you must be prepared to spend hours writing and editing each sentence until you have achieved the right blend of positive (and truthful, above all, always be truthful with online dating!) chatter and factual details. The reader must feel as though they want to get to know you and feel that they would be comfortable being in your company after they have read your profile: if they do not, they will move on to someone else.

Our ladies on our mature dating site should be on the look out for this guy or maybe a younger lady who is looking to date a mature man.
