When we are shy when meeting new people, what is the best way to break the ice online? On Plenty Of Fish, Meet Me is the easiest way to show someone that you are interested in them especially if you are a little shy to saying the first message. Meet Me feature can be found in the left of your profile icon on your homepage. From there, you are able to swipe to potential matches choosing Yes or No. If you like what you see, select Yes and you will be sent a notification when you have a mutual match. Even, upgraded users will show up first on Meet Me. It gives the users a huge advantage for finding someone special. Meet Me feature is available on all of apps and desktop.
No one is looking at my profile or sending me messages. How do I stand out? Do not have to worry about this. You are just going through a dry spell at the moment but it is temporary. All new users tend to show up a lot in search results and get a lot of messages. When the messages taper off a little bit, it can be discouraging. The best way to draw attention back to your profile is by switching up your main profile image. Try doing so every couple of weeks to see what image is most popular for you. Someone who may passed you by the first time will see to this new photo and see you with new interest. I highly suggest that you go into your mail settings under Edit Profile to see what restrictions you may have applied. Adjust these settings so that somebody who maybe interested in you can actually send you a message. Also make sure that all notifications are turned on. So, you never miss a message from that special one.
What topics should I avoid when creating my online profile? Your profile description is one of the first impression someone has of you. So, make sure to keep things concise and upbeat. Avoid the topics about your ex, your divorce or last failed relationship, your long hiatus from dating, anything sexual, any cliches or generalizations, what you don’t want in a partner and long checklist. You can talk about what you like to do in your spare time, your favorite movies, music, or food, things you are passionate about, your ideal first date or your personal favorite, or share an anecdote. People feel like they know you a little bit better when they know something about your life.
I noticed some profiles have a yellow dot on their main image, what does this mean? This means they are an upgraded user. An upgraded user has a paid membership that allows them to unlock special features on the site.
Okay, the dating tips from the best insider is enough. Hopefully, these tips can be helpful for you to find someone special.
