Free Dating Sites Do's and Don'ts

Do have a high quality profile photo.
This should go without saying, the best way to improve your chances of finding a match on free dating sites is to include a high quality profile photo. I’m not saying that you need a professional photographer or need to take a crazy photo shoot with props and wild animals. A simple picture of yourself smiling is usually enough to get the job done.

Don’t use your dick pic as a profile picture
Yes, there are a few dating site’s out there that are a bit more explicit than the rest. And while it’s okay, or perhaps even encouraged, to include nude photos as your profile picture, it’s usually best to not have a close up of your dick as your introduction. Sure, maybe it’s your greatest asset. Maybe you’re genuinely proud of your dick, but either way, if you’re looking to have a real connection or meet for sex, it’s important to use a profile picture that tells users a bit more about you than just a profile of your cock. Save the dick pics for albums and private photo’s, you’ll get a higher click through rate on your profile, more hits, more matches, and ultimately more date’s and lays.

Do use a real email
Many free dating sites use your email to sign up. While it might be tempting to simply input a fake or spam email, please don’t. Many free dating site’s send user messages and sex requests directly to your email, so you’d be missing out greatly on all your matches, messages, and potential fuck buddy hook ups. That being said, some sites send your password directly to your email, so if you don’t use your real email, you risk someone else being able to high jack your account. Long story short, take care to use a real email when signing up for a free dating website.

Don’t use your work email
Whether or not you think your work environment is laid back, and your boss is chill, it’s a very bad idea to use your work email for a free dating site. First of all, whether you’d like to believe it or not, many work places will directly monitor your web usage, meaning, it doesn’t look very good (and puts you in quite an embarrassing situation) when you use a free dating site at work, or with your work email. That being said, an even worse option is that your company uses a CRM or email sync program which will automatically pull all your email communication into a central hub where your superiors can access all communication. Needless to say, it’s not going to be pretty when someone else is reviewing the communication taken place using your work email and a free dating service.

Do check in regularly
Many people have the tendency to start things, and forget about them. Be like an envelope and stick to one thing until you get there. That means, when you sign up for a free dating site, you should be checking in regularly (at least once a week) to interact or initiate contact with any potential matches, dates, or hookups. If you’re not going to be consistent and actually put effort into online dating, then there’s no reason to even sign up in the first place.

Do use a mobile app or mobile site
Smartphones offer modern day consumers a mini super computer in the palm of their hand. Online dating sites that support mobile and smartphones offer online daters superior convenience and privacy. Using a dating site or app on your phone offers you better privacy, as generally you won’t be sharing access to your phone as readily as a a home, work, or family computer. It also gives you the convenience to check in on your matches, dates, and adult contacts whenever you like.

Don’t give up if you don’t have any luck right away
If at first you don’t succeed, then try, try again. Having success at online dating takes effort, and chances are you won’t have instant success right away. While it’s easy to get discouraged, it’s better to re evaluate and perhaps update your profile, run a few new searches, and message those few matches or hot singles near you. As long as you don’t give up, the chances are in your favor to meet someone that you’ll find interesting. And of course if it comes down to it, spending a bit of money to buy an upgrade to your profile visibility or messaging permissions can greatly improve your chances at finding a match.
