Wakefield isn’t the largest of cities, but if you include the surrounding areas, there are plenty of singles around. The problem is - how do you meet singles? Sure, you likely have some friends that will introduce you to a few singles, there’s the local pub and of course you go out and do other things ever so often, but that still limits the amounts of singles you meet. Truth be told most of us mingle with the same people over and over again, especially in smaller cities. It’s not like London where there’s seemingly unlimited opportunity to meet people. And even there people get frustrated as it’s one thing to meet people, another thing entirely to meet single people looking for the same thing you are.
Online dating sites like Flirt.com change all that. Suddenly you can reach out to any single on the site and there’s likely to be thousands in your area alone. You can search for singles with similar interests, singles who live in your town, or singles further afield, should you choose to avoid the gossip…or simply because you want to date people who haven’t known you since you were twelve!
How to Be Successful with Online Dating in Wakefield
Online dating, like real life dating, is all about presenting yourself in the right light. There are fantastic people who never get seen just because they never really show themselves. So here are some pointers to be successful when meeting singles online in Wakefield and beyond.
Use great profile pictures that show off your personality. Include a few where you do things you love, show good times with friends, etc.
Write a profile that really captures who you are - make it unique enough to stand out.
Don’t ramble in your profile; write just enough to make us curious to find out more. Avoid negative statements (always refer to what you want, as opposed to what you don’t want) and too much sarcasm as it can be perceived as negativity.
Be sure to check spelling and grammar.
Have friends help you create a profile if you’re not a writing and photography genie.
Reach out to anyone who catches your attention and in your first message let them know what caught your attention. Always make sure the first message is personal and not a standardized one.
Be honest and polite. Chivalry goes a long way.
Meet someone as soon as possible for a quick drink/coffee to find out if there’s chemistry.
