Major Online Dating Sites

What makes certain online dating sites better than the others? There are many dating websites out there yet as with many things, there are always the most popular ones. What makes the major online dating sites so popular? Some of these top ones include Koopa.com, OKCupid.com, PlentyofFish.com (Pof), and CasualKiss.com.

Well, one of the main reasons is that they are free. They don’t charge a fee for you to sign up and start finding people you want to get to know. Like the others, many of them help match you up with people who have the same interests, goals, likes, and dislikes. But the major online dating sites also allow you to find people who may not be recommended by the sites. Crazy as it seems, many sites match your profile to other profiles but you can’t customize your search and pair yourself up on your own. But the major Internet dating sites that are so popular allow you this flexibility and option. In other words, you aren’t limited.

Community is a huge factor in the success of top free online dating sites. Koopa offers a great community. Sense of community is also known as a psychological sense of community and users want to belong to a group where they feel a strong part of. Community allows them to be free to be themselves as well as be amongst others who can have that same freedom and be appreciated for who they are. Community is about acceptance and feeling like being in a big (or small) family. The group, or community, that you belong to is all dependent on you. And the top sites allow this.

Koopa is excellent in not limiting their users and visitors. The Koopa community allows you to be as social as you wish. You can use the free site strictly for online dating, for finding new and old friends, and for networking and finding business collaborations. Whether you upload photos and content to find your perfect match for dating or for business ventures and goals, that is up to you. You can create posts, questions, and content to assist you in your online dating and social networking with Koopa.

Plenty of Fish, or Pof, gives online dating site users a chemistry test to take. Their goal is to help registered users discover and list their emotional needs in order to develop long term, fulfilling relationships as their emotional needs will be met. Pof also helps you to discover your relationship needs. Many relationship sites don’t offer this.

OkCupid, like Koopa, allows for a mix. You can stir up your online dating and social networking. The unique thing about OkCupid is that you can be matched or NOT matched to anyone even if they are considered to be your Friend, Partner, or Enemy. Yes, you can even choose to be matched to your Enemy.

So there you have a few reasons why the major online dating sites are better than the thousands of free dating websites out there.

Free Online Dating Guide – Say Goodbye to Rejection and Hello to a New Relationship

Dating online can be a mystery so this article shares tips from a free online dating guide that can help you move away from awkward rejection and find that new relationship that can add so much to your life. If you would like to learn how to navigate the online dating world then I encourage you to take a couple of minutes to read on.

Free Online Dating Guide

1. Captivate with your photo. Your first impression online will be your photograph so it is important to post the one that sends the right message. A stuffy picture of you in business attire may look nice but it will not get a lot of interest. Instead upload a good quality photo of you in a fun environment maybe outside or at a park. This lively photo points to a fun personality and will get more attention.

2. Read your profile out loud to yourself. Then next thing after your picture that gets noticed will be your profile. Make sure it reads light and positive. You want to avoid anything negative such as, “I can’t believe I am doing this.” Even when said jokingly these comments can come off wrong and keep a person from contacting you. To be sure it sounds good read your profile out loud to yourself.

3. Be respectful even if you are not interested. You want to be conscious of your online presence at all times. If you find that you are not interested in someone do not simply “disappear” or say anything rude. It is surprising how this can come back to haunt you later.

4. Expect others to respect you. Just as you need to be respectful, you should expect the same treatment from others. You do not have to tolerate any harsh treatment on line and if someone is being disrespectful or inconsistent in returning messages to you then feel confident enough to send them a polite message to let them know you are choosing to move on.

Meeting Your Online Date Face to Face and What to Do If it Goes Wrong

Well done. You have joined a great dating site, and found what you feel is your ideal partner. After getting to know each other online, and seeing the picture, all is well and you decide to meet face to face. This is the first step in a new relationship, will it be everything you have ever dreamed of? or will it all go wrong? If it does turn into a nightmare, and you need to get out and fast, how do you do it, and what precautions should you take to make sure you keep your escape routes open?

You may have emailed, spoken on the phone, and seen the other persons smiling face on a digital photo, even so your first meeting is in reality little better than a blind date. So you are there nervously waiting for your soul mate, but after you meet you realize quickly that there is little hope of a spark, and all you can hope for is a fire drill or other man made disaster to end it as quickly as possible. You can’t rely on fate intervening, so how do you ditch a bad date? Here are eight practical options you should always have in mind in case of a bad date emergency.

1 – First impressions count. Make sure you are there first and get yourself in a position where you can see the door. In such a way that you can see your date arrive but they can’t see you. If you get a look at them and they look approximately like the photo, but 10 years older or 50 pounds heavier, you can escape down your previously surveyed getaway route. You can always make an excuse phone call and apology once you are out. It’s guilt free you only ran because they lied first.

2 – The escape call. Before leaving for your date make sure you arrange with a friend to call you at a time when you will be a little into your date. After answering the call you can either tell your date it was not important, if all is well, if not however you can fake an emergency that will get you out of there fast.

3 – The fake call, If you didn’t arrange a get out call, you can always fake one, either by saying you have received a text message, or by going to the bathroom and saying someone called whilst you were away.

4 – The reverse fake call – You or a friend, can call the venue where you are having the date, and get them to page your nightmare companion with a fake emergency. They will be puzzled when they receive the message, but nine times out of ten will make their excuses and leave. This may also get you a free meal, don’t hang around too long though, because they may come back!

5 – The fake illness – You can always say you feel ill and need to leave, this takes a bit of care as if you seem too ill, your date may try and leave with you to look after you, so use with caution.

6 – If you are feeling particularly callous you can go the the bathroom and instead run straight out of the exit and don’t look back. Variations of this can be used depending on what type of venue you find yourself in.

7 – This works better for women, but can be adapted for both sexes. Why not use psychological warfare, and get your date to run out on you, by announcing how cute your kids will be, or how you can already see you two being married. Extreme variations of this can include, talking about the voices in your head or even talking to the voices in your head. The main advantage of this method is, if your date dumps you, you will still get to enjoy the meal, drinks, or whatever, and it’s completely guilt free.

8 – Shockingly you could try being honest. Talk to your date say you are sorry but you can see no hope of this date working, make your excuses and go. The advantage of this is whilst not being entirely guilt free, it is a little less heartless than just running, especially if carefully worded.

I hope these tips help you next time you find yourself in a hopeless situation and gets you out of there fast. I know it may seem cold but there really is no point prolonging a date once you see it has no future. Move on and better luck next time.
