Six Steps To Sizzle Your Online Dating Profile

Six Steps To Sizzle Your Online Dating Profile

“Sell The Sizzle. Not the Steak they say”. We are always selling something in life. Whether organising a birthday party and trying to sell a fun time to others and inviting them, selling our selves in terms of our skills to an employer, selling our cookies in a charity event, selling our own products at a flea market or garage sale etc. However, when it comes to looking for a partner in life we don’t sell ourselves enough.

I am not saying be arrogant and conceited. I am saying to be assertive and show your strong points. Sell your sizzle! You certainly have it. We all have it. We all have certain talents we are born with whether we like to accept it or not.

One of the sad things which happen in online dating is that when anyone is single and lonely, they sometimes are not in a best state of mind to think of the strong points about themselves due to past negative associations from their past relationships or just simply have a low self-esteem. Not all but some of us do this. We end up selling ourselves short and settling with anyone who walks into our life

That’s quite ok. What is not ok is to continue to NOT show your positive points when looking for a partner.
So right now we are going to discuss how we can make our online dating profile shine with pride and makes us an attractive potential target for a partner who is suitable for us and looking at our online dating profile

Step 1) Have a completed profile
Ok this is the most obvious step, but some people completely ignore this step altogether. They think they are going to be doing the searching on the online dating site so they don’t really have to have their profile completed.

This is one of the key steps which a lot of people forget or don’t take the time to do it. Because they feel either they don’t have the time to write a detailed profile, or they think they are going to be contacting people anyway so why bother or they think what is the point etc.

Your profile is your first impression you give to a potential partner who maybe browsing that dating site when you have joined that particular dating site. When a potential partner is looking through profiles if they see an empty profile even without a picture, how could they get to know you when you don’t even present yourself let alone make ANY impression!?

But please do have something in your profile without having just a single line like some people, which says “hot guy looking for a hot girl” or “are you cute? Then email me” or “sexy girl wants her cute boy friend” or “just looking”!

Step 2) Highlight your desires
In your profile details define what kind of person you are looking for. When your potential partner is reading your profile you want them to contact you by winking or sending you an Instant Message or by emailing you via the online dating site. You don’t want them to hit the ‘next’ button. You want them to hit the “Contact This Person” button.

Step 3) Avoid Incompatible partners
The same logic for attracting your compatible partner applies when we are talking about incompatible partners. By mentioning your requirements as in step 2) applies you are writing whom you are looking for at least in a broader sense. If you have a deal breaker rule which you would never break such as if you would never date a smoker, then please mention it in your profile. This way, the person looking at your profile who is a smoker can hit the ‘next’ button saving you and their time by not contacting you.

By making your profile only attractive to those whom you want to be attracted to you, you are only focusing your attention on those potential partners and making your profile sizzle to the right person
This way you don’t have to sift through 20 partners who contact you to find 2 potential dating partners.

Step 4) Add the best photo you have of yourself
We all heard of making the best first impression. Why not take this concept to your online dating? When we go on our first date with someone, wouldn’t we try to look our best to impress our date? Why not use the same concept when setting up our own dating profile?

It is an obvious saying that a picture is equal to a thousand words. If you are looking for a long-term relationship, try to match your picture to say what you want it to say about yourself in the best light possible to your potential partner. For example: if you are looking for long-term marriage minded relationship on your online dating site, suggestion is not to post a nude photo of yourself else you will attract all kinds of unwanted short-term dating bed hoppers.

Step 5) Highlight some of your strong interests
It is always great to find someone on an online dating site who has most of your passions and interests at heart. They don’t always have to match 100% with your interests. They can have their own exclusive interests too. But it is great to have some overlapping interests.

By highlighting your interests you will attract a potential partner with those interests. This is obvious but has to be said as it is amazing how many people ignore this important step.

A potential partner can put together a mental picture of you with your interests and this will make them want to share those common interests and activities with you. They say we seek people who are like us. If you go to a mountain climbing club field trip or a yoga meditation boot camp you will know what I mean!

Step 6) Show Off Your Talents
We know our strong points and talents. But does a potential dating partner who is looking at your profile for the first time know those talents? So spell it out. If you make an amazing pie, say it. If you make the your city’s most yummiest soup say it. If you give the world’s best body massage say it. If you sing like Celine Dion say it. If you are sensitive say it.

What does your talent got to do with sizzling your profile? If someone loves chocolate ice cream and you describe to them, a yummy chocolate flavoured smooth ice cream filled with pistachio nuts some chunks of chocolate cause some mouth watering? Well if someone loves the traits of talents you happen to have and if you don’t spell it out how could you sizzle yourself and sell yourself?

So please take the above steps when decide to sizzle your online dating profile. Happy Dating!

RAID recovery – taking the best steps to retain your data with Secure Data Recovery

RAID recovery – taking the best steps to retain your data with Secure Data Recovery

RAID originally stood for ‘redundant array of inexpensive disks’, and was later changed to ‘redundant array of independent disks’ to get away from the ‘inexpensive’ tag. These days, the phrase ‘RAID server’ is used generally as an umbrella term for computer data storage that divides data among different drives; depending on what type of RAID server you use, this data is also replicated.

That might not mean a lot to you, but one thing it does mean is that when your RAID array crashes it is no simple task to recover the data on it, and when this happens it is extremely important for your business to contact the right people the first time as there is often only one shot at getting data off of ruined drives – if the people you contact are not up to the job they may finish the task of destroying the data that the original event started, and as we all know that could cost any business huge amounts of money.

Secure Data Recovery is one of the premier data recovery specialists with more than 12 years of experience, state of the art secure facilities and next generation equipment and programming regimes. They offer recovery on all RAID systems including RAID 0 through 0+1; they also offer RAID repair and many other services.

The RAID 0 arrays are the hardest to work on; the systems lack any fault tolerance mechanisms which makes data loss a more serious event than in other types of RAID arrays. RAID 0 does have its technological advantages, but easy recovery of damaged drives or corrupted software is not one of them.

At Secure Data Recovery they have developed specific plans of action, tools and programming to address these issues, and even with RAID 0 the chances of data recovery are excellent. Secure Data Recovery will evaluate your drive for free and provide you with a full diagnostic report detailing what they will be able to recover and detailing the costs of that recovery.

When you do need RAID recovery, you can trust Secure Data Recovery to handle your information in the most secure facilities. They are Class 10 ISO 4 Certified Cleanroom ready and hold multiple security certifications including SSAE 16 and 70 certifications. While it is always good for any company to protect their information, for many types of companies and government entities it is not just a matter of choosing a company that has such certifications but a matter of law that they do – no matter what your business, whether it is required by law or not you can rest assured that Secure Data Recovery will treat your data with the same security concerns that we do for the most stringent clients.

When it comes time for RAID recovery, it is imperative that you contact the company that knows these systems in and out, that has the technological savvy, the equipment and the programming ability to recover the data that your company depends upon – do not take chances; when your RAID array suffers a hardware of software malfunction resulting in data loss, call Secure Data Recovery.

5 Steps to Successful Online Dating

5 Steps to Successful Online Dating

Online Dating is on the rise. How can you use this dating method to your best advantage with your best foot forward?

There are several dating methods blind dates, classified ads, telephone personals, or even general grocery store pickup line dates or even the popular online dating. Each of the dating methods has its advantages and disadvantages.

Here I am going to focus on online dating. Here are five steps to successful online dating

Step 1) Specify What You Want
Decide what kind of dating or relationship you want to have
I hear you say, “What do you mean? What kind of relationship?. Dating is dating isn’t it?”. Well what I meant was, to define if you are looking for marriage-minded relationship, or long-term relationship without any marriage plans, or short-term casual dating ranging from few weeks to few months or even intimate encounters for very short-time frames such as days.

This step helps you identify what you are looking for. Why do you have to define what kind of dating or relationship you want? This way you can search for online dating sites based on your decision. There are several sites focusing on marriage minded and long term relationships. And then some, which focus on the relationships focused on casual, short term and intimate in nature

You can search on Internet search engines such as Google or Yahoo by searching with your criteria keywords within quotes such as “marriage minded dating” or “casual dating” or “intimate encounters” etc

Step 2) Select Your Dating Site
Browse each online dating site very carefully by looking at the profiles at each site and reading each profile what they are looking for in their dating partner. Some online dating sites will allow you to browse profiles without registering first. So you can use this opportunity to browse their dating profiles and assess whether that online dating site is your kind of place to hang around

A word of caution is that not all online dating sites are the same. Some are fancy. Some are quality. Some are cheap. Some are feature-rich. Some are free. Some are paid. But what matters most is for you to select the internet dating site based on what you want on Step 1) plus the features you find in each dating site which you feel will get you to whom you want to date

Step 3) Setup Your Amazing Profile
This is one of the key steps which a lot of people forget or don’t take the time to do it. Because they feel either they don’t have the time to write a detailed profile, or they think they are going to be contacting people anyway so why bother or they think what is the point etc.

Your profile is your first impression you give to a potential partner who maybe browsing that dating site when you have joined that particular dating site. When a potential partner is looking through profiles if they see an empty profile even without a picture, how could they get to know you when you don’t even present yourself let alone make ANY impression!?

So a completed profile is a must. A picture adds another thousand words to your profile. If you wish to remain anonymous in the beginning a dating profile without a picture is also ok. You can make up for it in your profile details. But please do have something in your profile without having just a single line like some people, which says “hot guy looking for a hot girl” or “are you cute? Then email me” or “sexy girl wants her cute boy friend” or “just looking”!. I even saw on one dating profile which said “oh I was lost .now I am found. Let me out!”. Hmmm. if it is meant to be funny, at least make sure the sense of humor is easily understood.

Step 4) Using the Dating Site Features
As mentioned above, not all online dating sites have the same feature set. Depending on whether each dating site charges per month or whether they are free, what features they offer as part of their program will also differ

Most dating sites will allow you to post your profile for free. When you browse their existing profiles and you find a person you like to contact then most sites will not let you contact them unless you pay. If the site is a free site then they will most likely allow you to contact them.

Contacting the interested person maybe either via a “wink” or an “Instant Messenger” or an internal email via the site. Each of these features will be useful in their own right.

A quick and easy method to show your interest to the person you are interested is to send a “wink”‘. This way you don’t have to come up with your own ‘chat up line’ or other creative ways of getting their attention. The dating site will have predefined ‘winks’ setup so you just select one wink you like and then ‘voila!” your desired person will have got your ‘wink’.

Sometimes it is better to Instant Message a person especially if you find that person rarely comes “online” and you want to grab their attention when they are online which is quite unusual so you would like to say “hi”.

An email to the interested party is better because you can describe yourself better and plant a better ‘first impression’. The reason being if you “IM” a person and they reject you at that moment because they don’t know much about you, some sites may not allow you to contact that person again even by email. This will depend on the dating website’s sophistication of their features. Normally, you can contact that person by Instant Messaging and if they reject your IM, you can still email them.

If the online dating site you signed up is fortunate enough to have chat rooms, you can say hi in the chat room and then take the conversation to a private ‘whisper’ mode for more privacy to converse with that person in a more private setting

Step 5) Take Your Time To Get To Know
Some people who start on dating online rush into things which they later regret. It is critical that you get to know the other person very well before arranging an offline meeting in person

There are several reasons for this. Firstly, your only interaction with the person you just met on the dating site is thru Instant Message, Chat or Email or a combination of these. Sometimes you may have taken the conversation to a phone conversation by exchanging numbers or calling that person. On these mediums the other person can create quite a ‘make believe’ scenario and in the ‘heat of the moment’ of attraction with their features as they describe it, or their voice or their words might blind you from your normal logical thinking.

So it is very important to get to know them from all angles before committing to meet them in person. One of the best ways is to ask questions. Especially open ended questions. Whatever you do, do not assume anything about the other person. This is not fair on you because you are not telling yourself the truth, or the other person because you are misjudging them.

When you are ready to meet, choose a place to meet which you feel comfortable with. Be yourself, and enjoy the dating process. Best of all, have fun getting to know the other person. If it is not fun then it is not worth your time. Good Luck!

Six Easy Steps In Choosing A Good Online Dating Site

Six Easy Steps In Choosing A Good Online Dating Site

With all the online dating sites available all over the Internet, choosing a good one can be overwhelming. Here are six easy steps to help you choose a good site.

There is no better way today to meet new and interesting potential mates than through an Internet dating site. However, with the hundreds of sites available out there, how can you choose one that is best? Here are six steps to help you choose a good online dating service:

Know your budget. Remember that most dating sites charge anywhere from $ 20 to $ 30 monthly as fees for their services. Some charge you one-time membership fees. Make sure you have already set a specific budget that you want to devote for online dating then for a site that fits your budget well. There are free online dating sites available. You can check them out as well if you are out of budget.

Ask friends and family for recommendations. If you use a search engine to look for a good online dating site, be ready to get overwhelmed. If you want to skip having to look through pages of dating sites available all over the Internet, try asking your friends instead. For sure, you will know someone or someone who knows someone who have tried online dating. Ask them to recommend you a good dating site which offers great services.

Consider joining specialized sites. You can opt to sign up for a specialized dating site. If you have unique situations or special interests, you can look around for dating services which are concentrated on people like you. There are sites which are for customized audiences, which can include those with specific racial, religious, political or sexual preferences, among others. This way, you can find the dating site most suitable for you.

Know the pros and cons of each site. From your research and from recommendations, narrow down your choices to about three. Compare each site from the other and weigh their advantages and disadvantages. You can compare their site features, safety measures, service fees, number of website members, presentation, site look, and so on.

Test the site. A good dating site will offer you free trial runs for you to get the feel of the website. What you should look for are sites which can allow you to easily search for profiles which is the closest match to what you are looking for. Remember that dating websites have a large pool of members. In order to meet the people you will most likely be interested in, the site must offer good search features.

Diversify then select. Do not hesitate to sign up for two to three websites. Your goal with an online dating site is to get to meet as many people as you can. The more people you meet, the more choices you have, the better chances you have in finding the right mate. If you think that this particular dating site is not giving you quality results, try to vary your strategy and tinker around with your profile to check whether it improves. If not, feel free to stop your subscription and invest money on a more effective dating website.
