7 Tips For Attracting More Dates on Plenty of Fish
Do you ever get frustrated with the amount of time you spend trying to get success with online dating? If you answered yes, then it’s time you learn some tricks of the trade. For this, we will be using the popular and free Plenty of Fish dating site. These tips will help you to decrease your time online, increase your efficiency and deliver more potential dates.
1. Create a Killer Profile
Most people can’t wait to begin searching for potential dates that they end up spending little time on creating a quality profile. What they don’t realize, is that by taking the time to make a great profile, you save yourself a ton of time down the road. The reason is that once you have your profile tweaked to perfection, it will do most of the work for you. This is what you want, people coming to you for dates, rather than sending out countless messages in an endless pursuit.
2. Use More Pictures
Ever hear that old saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words?” Well, Plenty of Fish allows you to put up a maximum of eight pictures in your profile, so you potentially have a worth of 8,000 words! The trick is to display a variety of different pictures that help to show your unique personality. This is exponentially more effective than what you write in your “about me” section. It allows you to quickly display your value with a single glance at your pictures.
3. Maximize Picture Ratings
Though having lots of pictures in your profile is good, you also need to make sure that the pictures are attractive to the types of people you are seeking. Sometimes we can’t tell what pictures will be attractive and what won’t. What better way to find out than the picture rating feature on the Plenty of Fish website. All you have to do is go to the ‘images’ section and set all your pictures to be rated. Then after about a week, check to see how the pictures were rated. If they rate above a 6 then it’s a keeper. If it’s below a 6, then swap that picture out with a new one. Keep repeating this process until all of your pictures have a high rating.
4. View Favorites
One nice feature on the Plenty of Fish dating site is the “Favorites.” Whenever a person is browsing for potential dates they have the option to add someone they like as a favorite. The good news about this is that you can view who has added you into their favorites. It only makes sense to use this feature and contact those that you find attractive. Because you know that these people are already attracted to you, you’ll have a much better chance of success.
5. Find Your Fans
Similar to the “Favorites” feature is the “Fans” feature. This can be located on your own profile next to the “Rate My Picture” line. When you enable your pictures to be rated, which you should, you will be able to view anyone who rated you a 7 or higher. Again, this increases your dating efficiency because you can quickly find people that are already attracted to you.
6. Leverage the Forums
As discussed above, we want our profiles to do most of the work. The problem is that the profile can only do the heavy lifting if it is receiving a lot of views. So, how do we increase the traffic to our profiles? We leverage the Plenty of Fish forums.
The forums are very active and any one thread can get thousands of views. Thus, the strategy we want to employ is to write an occasional post in the forums. When you do this, people reading the forum threads can see your profile picture and click through to it. Bingo! You’ve just vastly increased the traffic to your profile.
7. Tell the Truth
The end result of online dating is to meet up in real life. By this time, your date will know a little bit about you and has some expectations of who they are about to meet. When they do meet you, your real life profile better match your online profile. If it doesn’t, you’ve automatically lost your integrity, which will kill any chance you had with that person.
Sure, you may get more online responses if you lie and stretch the truth, but you only sabotage the end result. Not only that, but you wasted precious time on someone that wasn’t going to be attracted to you in the first place. Stick to the truth and work with that. It’s the only way to make your real life dates as best they can be.
