Straight to the Point – Jen & Christy on Online Dating

One of the great things about YouTube is that virtually anyone can use it to share their opinions. Take for example, Jen & Christy in the video below. They decided to start a channel offering their opinions and advice. Now before we ever publish a video on the Online Dating News Blog, we first go through it to see if it is worth posting. And in this case… it is.  What we like about this video is that Jen & Christy don’t hold back. They are pretty blunt, which also leads us to warn you that the language in this video is not G-rated. Many cuss words are tossed around freely. Despite the language, the video is refreshing. It’s to the point with excellent advice and tips, mostly around the first communication and your profile. For example – “HI is a greeting, not a conversation starter”. There’s a reason many men don’t hear from women they try to communicate with on an online dating service and Jen & Christy nail quite a few.

Warning: Bad Language (hopefully they don’t do this on a date) 🙂

In Internet Dating, How Many People Do I Have to Write to Get a Response

(Online Dating News Blog – The Answer Box)

Question: When it comes to Internet and online dating, how many people do I have to write on an online dating service before I get a response?
This is a great question. Online Dating Magazine researched this and concluded that the ratio of emails sent by men to responses by women is, on average, 20 to 1. This means that for every 20 emails you send, you will get one response. The ratio improves, however, when you take greater care in personalizing your email message. So never send a generic email and always read the profile of the person you’re writing carefully. Use things you learned in reading the profile as conversation starters.

Should I Mention My Kids in My Online Dating Profile?

(Online Dating News Blog – The Answer Box)

Question: In my online dating profile should I mention or talk about my kids?
When you fill out the questionnaire on an online dating site, one of the questions asked is “do you have kids?” You should answer this with a Yes (if you do). Outside of that, you should not mention your kids at all and definitely do not post any pictures of them. Read Online Dating Magazine’s Warning to Single Parents for more information as to why.
