Needless to say, it was kind of an insult even back then; nothing screams romance more than “I’m interested in you but not enough to actually to join the site.” Fortunately most sites seem to have wised up and charge a subscription fee instead, but the vestigal organ that is the “wink” hangs in there like an appendix and does nothing but cause trouble.Here’s the thing: everybody knows exactly what it means when a guy sends one of these.Am I being unfair with this expectation of not giving my phone number out and preferring to spend weeks on online chatter? If you’ve ever wondered why you struggle with men, it’s quite likely because you’ve never given much value to HIS circle in the Venn Diagram.I actually do like this gentleman, which is unusual for me. I figure this is as good a time as any to float a pretty non-controversial theory of how to be successful in dating. Okay, so you know what a Venn Diagram looks like, right? I always ask for the man’s phone number, and offer to call him.This means that more than 50 million Zoosk members, called Zooskers, across more than 70 countries can meet using the Internet, their mobile phones, Facebook, and other popular services.Although Zoosk certainly isn’t the oldest dating site on the scene, it rapidly became one of the most popular.Attractive girls in big cities usually have so many matches that they rarely view second pics if they don’t like the first one. It should show your face, without sunglasses, with a friendly smile. If you do use one, make sure it doesn’t look like one.
Make your pictures personal by displaying your interests, favorite sports, or your lifestyle. For example, I’m more open to guys who share my interest in climbing.Why do all of that when you can meet women without leaving your house?Flirt to your heart’s content without even bothering to get dressed! If you think something is reasonable, but nobody else on the planet agrees with you, you’re going to be more effective by finding a compromise point closer to the majority position. Men who don’t pick up the full check on Date 1 are not “wrong”, but they are ineffective. In the Venn Diagram of Online Dating (copyright, Evan Marc Katz), men’s circle is Speed. He wants to meet you right NOW and see you naked ASAP. You know as well as I do that women don’t want to be bullied into going on blind dates: “Dear Dan, thank you for your initial inquiry. Besides, your profile doesn’t say very much about you, so maybe if you tell me more about yourself, if we click, then, maybe in a few weeks, I’ll give you my phone number and we can go from there.” This is the entire reason that I came up with a strategy that works for both men AND women. This Venn diagram theory goes for pretty much everything in life. And by ineffective, I mean that by not being able to understand (much less cater to) the opposite sex’s point of view, you’re pretty much eliminating your options.
