Holidays are a great opportunity to go out and have fun. And St. Patrick’s Day can be one of the most fun days for singles to celebrate, flirt, and connect with each other.

In the days leading up to St. Patrick’s Day, it’s time for you to ramp up your online dating flirting techniques. Maybe create a dating profile on Match to see if anyone wants to grab a green beer or partake in any other local festivities.

St. Patrick’s Day offers a chance to celebrate with your new online crush if you play your digital cards right.

Here are five tips to help you get noticed while looking for love online.

1. Change your profile photo.

Grab your favorite green sweater or dress, take a few photos and change your primary online dating photo to you wearing something bright green and fun.

Jump over to Facebook and change your profile photo there as well. Get into the spirit!

2. Change your status.

Change your headline to catch his or her eye to show you’d like to celebrate the holiday. Taglines such as “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” or “Hope to Get Lucky on St. Patrick’s Day” will help you get noticed.

Chances are your inbox will start to fill up and you’ll receive an abundance of winks and flirts.

“It’s OK to be bold. It’s

St. Patrick’s Day.”

3. Let dates know you’re ready to celebrate.

Post a four-leaf clover on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest letting people know you’re gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day.

4. Virtual gifts.

Send a green carnation as a virtual gift to someone whose profile piques your interest, and wish him or her an early “Happy St. Patrick’s Day.”

You’re more likely to receive a thank you email to get the conversation started.

5. Events.

Do a Google search for local events and St. Patrick’s Day parties in your area. Add that event to your profile bio and invite prospective dates to meet you there.

It’s OK to be bold. It’s St. Patrick’s Day.

Remember, you don’t need to be Irish to get into the spirit.

Practice these five tips diligently in the next few days, check to see who’s viewed your profile, respond to emails promptly and you’re likely have a date on your calendar in time for the weekend.

How will you be celebrating this St. Patrick’s weekend?
