How to Date online: Advice for Women Women: Learn the art of weeding out Women are often encouraged from childhood onward to be as likable as possible.
This can actually work against us when placing an online profile. I tell all my single girlfriends who are looking for a man online and frustrated with wading through boringly similar or offensively forward responses: To find someone who clicks with you, someone who will like you for more than your cute smile and killer bod, talk about some of your personal quirks.
State up front, for instance, that you hate football.
Or write about how much you dislike cooking. The result will be fewer men writing you, but those responses you receive will be from men more likely to appreciate you for who you are, not someone seeking to project some adolescent dream girl image onto you.
Conversely a male friend of mine was asked to read a specific book and tell her his opinion of it. He googled it and read the synopsis and realised it was about a man who was always horrible to women but got his comeuppance in the end.

Here are my top 10 tips for online dating based on my experience. Make a wishlist Develop a strategy before you begin.
What, exactly, are you looking for? Create a shopping list and be as specific as possible. Rather than saying "someone who wants kids", get granular.

Online dating: 10 rules to help find the ideal partner
People who use Tinder tend not to be looking for long-term relationships. It's OK to use two or three sites at a time.
Bear in mind that you'll want most of the features activated, and that some sites can be expensive. Go shopping For the most part, dating sites aren't doing anything particularly mysterious. Sites mostly create taxonomies and match users based on their answers. In some cases, sites look at the gap between users' answers and their behaviours.
For example, you might say that you prefer a very tall man with dark hair who is religious, but mainly click on profiles for shorter atheists. The algorithm in that case would try to match you according to your behaviour.
But maybe you're clicking on all of the profiles, even those that don't match your preferences, or sitting next to your sister, and she's also looking for a boyfriend — one who's short and blond. In that case, the algorithm won't work either. It's best to treat dating sites as giant databases for you to explore. Keep your profile short Long profiles typically didn't fare well in my experiment.
I think that for thoughtful women, or women who are quite smart, there's a tendency to give more of a bio. Popular profiles were shorter and intriguing.
