Making the Single Sites Work for You

MOST IMPORTANT tip you will ever receive-
DO NOT buy a subscription until you have used the FREE MEMBERSHIP for one week. Why?
Because the majority of people you're interested in contacting WILL NOT have a paid subscription (Murphy's Law). If the free membership doesn't allow reading or sending of e-mail ‒ you kinda need to know this. That paid subscription isn't good for much if the person you contacted can't read your emails yeh?

DO NOT use words like:
“average, run of the mill, typical”
in your self description. Nothing I ever wanted badly in this life could be described as “average”. Think about it....

DO NOT plagiarize someone else's profile. You would be surprised how many times I read the same profile over and over again on different members. Saying very little is better than saying what's already been said.

Don't use a cliché'. ie. “I'm not trying to change my life...” If I read this one more time I think I'll scream.

DO NOT say “my buddy put me up to this...”
it says ‒ I'm easily influenced
I'm not really serious
I think this is a joke, therefore you're a joke.

READ the profile of the person you're contacting. Seriously.
DO your “off-limits” mirror their “must haves”?
Does their profile say they will not respond unless you send a pic?
'nuff said.

Be realistic. ie. Can you afford to fly cross country to meet someone?

DO NOT attempt to instant messenger chat with more than one person at a time. It's obvious, more importantly ‒ it's RUDE.

If someone declines your advance DO NOT continue to harass them. Yes ‒ it's HARASSMENT and it's creepy.


Use current pics. This does not mean a 10 yr old photo as your lead with 3 more progressing to a current photo.

Are you using a chest/abs pic ‒ but your chest/abs are only in so-so shape? Bad idea because search results will return your photo directly beside Mr. 7 days a week at the gym. (again Murphy's law of averages here)

To end this on a more pleasant note ‒ a few of the best profile headlines I've seen:

I Rock Harder Than Store-Bought Boobies!

remember the one your mother warned you about...I'm his older brother

I agree whole heartedly except for number one. Some sites like this one you can reply to an email if it is sent to you.
