How to find a date

Finding a date  

Looking for a date is very much like looking for a job.

Dating, like job seeking, requires skills, energy and persistence. You need to be active online and you need to get out and about to meet new friends and find potential dates.

Don't stay at home waiting for the world to come to you.

There a large number of general and specialist dating websites to help you find dates. When you do online dating, you can protect your privacy by getting a new email address just for dating. Follow the rules of the site for describing yourself and uploading pictures.

If you are finding it hard to describe yourself, get a friend (ideally of the opposite sex) to help describe/sell you. Be honest about your height and weight.

Don't be afraid of rejection when you go online dating as rejection is perfectly normal. Only one or two out of ten approaches result in a response.

If you are a man, you need to know that you need to do the chasing. Women do not do the chasing online though there are mechanisms for them to show interest. 

Here are some ideas and suggestions about how to improve your chances of finding people to date.
