Does online dating work for men

We men love to complain about how women have extraordinarily high standards when looking for a mate—however, we fail to look a little bit deeper at why this is the case.

While women may get an ego boost when they receive 30-100 messages in any given week, nobody really wishes to have that much admin to sift through.

I used to feel like I was the wallpaper that would peel in the background when I’m in a room full with a thousand people.

This product of social conditioning rears its ugly head online even more so, as an average of seven men compete for the attention of one woman.

According to research, women who send messages to men are twice as likely to receive a response compared to men who start conversations.

But, it was something I found she had an emotional attachment and connection to that would be a great conversation starter. My advice: It’s not worth worrying or caring about. Never put your eggs in one basket, expecting a response from the person who seems like a perfect match for you.

When you embark with online dating, you shouldn’t just expect rejection—you must embrace it and become its friend.

I came along, read her profile and out of everything she mentioned, I decided to pick on that and use it as “ammo”to start a conversation. Much to her surprise, it was a comment in favour of something she wrote on her profile which caught my eye—rather than putting it in the message box, I put it in the title to grab her attention, and up till this day, I have kept it.

It wasn’t the most interesting thing on her profile—that’d be quite sad. You may have similar interested, a compatible personality—you could be everything they are looking for, however even that may not be enough for some people.

It is a strict marketing teacher with a steep learning curve.

The feedback you receive from your experiences with online dating with either teach you what not to do, or confuse you even further.

I’m always at my most happiest when I’m spending my time and energy focusing on the aspects of my life within my control.
