5 Ways to Find a Date by Valentine’s Day

With the Super Bowl around the corner, it’s a reminder to most women Valentine’s Day is only 11 days later.

If your relationship status is “Single” and you’re hoping to find a date online by Valentine’s Day, know you’re not alone.

Most online dating sites have reported a record number of sign-ups since the first of the year, ranging from 22 percent to 50 percent.

Are you ready to get started?

Here are five ways you can find a date in time for Valentine’s Day.

1. Flirt on Facebook.

Finding love on Facebook is becoming more and more common every day.

Spend some time “liking” your digital crush’s posts and move the conversation privately to Facebook chat.

Make sure you note his relationship status in his “About” page. If it’s set to “Single,” chances are the coast is clear.

2. Change your settings on your profile.

Many women have hidden profiles or don’t allow others to see when they’re currently online.

I believe this is a huge mistake. You need to make it easy for others to engage in a conversation with you.

Change your chat settings to “on” and your profile to “visible.” You won’t come across as needy or desperate. In fact, you’re giving permission for potential suitors to contact you. You can always check out their profiles before deciding whether to respond.

a numbers game. You need to play to win.”

3. Notice who’s viewed your profile.

Online dating can be overwhelming. When you log on to your account, take a peek at who has recently viewed your profile. Chances are you’re still fresh in their mind and initiating an email would be welcomed.

4. Log on 3 times every day.

Did you know just logging on to the dating site helps your profile appear higher in a search? Log on in the morning, during your lunch break and again in the evening.

When you do so, mix around your profile photos. If you’re uploading new ones to Facebook, share them on your dating profile as well.

Notice who has also recently logged on and send them an email.

5. Schedule 5 dates a week.

If this sounds overwhelming, it really isn’t. If you were looking for a job, you’d easily go on five interviews a week until you found the perfect match.

Mix it up with coffee dates, drink dates and lunch dates. This way, it’s more likely you’ll have a weekend date scheduled on your calendar.

At the end of the digital day, online dating is a numbers game. You need to play to win.

Wishing you much love and joy in cyberspace, or wherever you may roam.

    I like number 4 a lot! I didn’t know you’d appear higher on someones page if you logged on more…Kind of reminds me of Facebook. The more active you are and the more things you “like” gets you at the top of a news feed. Seriously didn’t realize online dating sites were like that too…
