You can’t watch as they smile, and that smile spreads up into their eyes and transforms their face into one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen – a thing that warms your heart and makes you realize you want to spend more time with the person. Unfortunately, the reality is nowhere near that fantasy.
To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse.
Ironically enough, if you could take the best of those women and the best of those men, and place them in a big room where they could sit at a table and ask each other questions in person – you’d probably have 4 or 5 new match-ups by the end of the night. All they have to do is get online every day, sitting on their princess throne and file through the dozens or more profiles of men who have messaged them throughout the day.
The problem with online dating is that you can’t see the person’s face when they’re telling you about themselves. I think it’s hard for guys to comprehend the world of online dating from a woman’s perspective.

And when writing a first message to someone, being friendly, respectful and concise is going to be a whole load better than trying to come up with a chat up line or acting like a pick up artist. Coming on too strong Don’t overwhelm your new friend with messages, texts and calls straight away as this could make women think you’re desperate.
The baggage is not so much Louis Vuitton, more like a supermarket plastic bag with holes in it. Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.It’s far too complex, scary and difficult for mere mortals – so let’s bridge the gap by asking both men and women what doesn’t work when it comes to online dating Dating has gone digital. Using a bad picture While women are notorious for using overly good photos as their profile pictures, often resulting in a bit of disappointment on the actual date, men are well known for choosing pictures that don’t do them justice. If you’re feeling clueless about what makes a good photo (and, to be honest, most men are) then ask someone else.A female friend, a sister, even a professional dating advisor if necessary.
