com to talk to you about how to do effective internet dating The question is, what to do after your internet date? Bye! Well there is several possibilities When you come home you may think about it and it might of been good or bad That was the worst date I ever had Or, that was the best date I ever had

Well if it wasn't so good, I still recommend that you send a little note to the person over the internet Thanks, it was nice meeting you, but I don't think we're quiet suited to each other I wish you well in meeting the person of your dreams But what happens if you didn't like the person and you just remember there's a world of people out there It's a numbers game

The same thing, what if you had a great time, and you're waiting by the phone but the person doesn't call? Well my advice is don't get depressed, don't take it too personally Remember again, it's a numbers game and if this person wasn't right for you, there's hundreds of others just waiting to make contact with you Then of course there's always the possibility that not only did you have a good time, but they did too Hello, oh yes, it was great fun Saturday night?

Using Online Dating Sites : What to Do After Your First Internet Date

Hi, I'm Marilyn Anderson, I'm the author of the dating book "Never Kiss a Frog" I'm here today on behalf of expertvillage

com to talk about how to do effective internet dating Right now we're going to be talking about what to do after that first contact is made? Maybe somebody has written to you that they would love to meet you Or maybe you have selected somebody? Now if it's somebody you want to proceed with, what's next? Do you want to start emailing? Sure a couple of good emails can give you lots of information You can ask questions about them See what kind of answers they give

I just don't recommend over exposure on emails Back and forth emailing is fine a little bit, but not for too long It's said that if you don't meet somebody within 2 to 3 weeks, you're probably not going to So after a few emails back and forth, get their phone number, put the computer away and bring out the trusty phone You can tell more in a conversation with somebody than all of the emails in the world

It gives you a sense of their personality Whether they're friendly, whether they're dull, whether you have common interests You can talk about things to see if it's an easy conversation or if they're making it hard for you Talk on the phone and then before too long, decide if you do or if you don't want to meet Then if you decide if you do, put the phone away and it's time to meet them face to face

Relationship & Dating Advice : Internet Dating Tips

Hi, I'm Donna Barnes I'm a life and relationship coach and owner of NYDatingCoach in New York City

In this clip we're going to talk about what you need to know about Internet dating And the first thing you need to know is, don't take it personally It's not personal until you've actually got into a relationship with the person So if he doesn't reply to your e-mail, or she doesn't get back to you, it could mean a million things They might just be busy

They might not have got the e-mail They might have met somebody else already It's not about you It's probably more about them Secondly, have a picture that looks like you

The biggest complaint I hear from people is that the person showed up and they didn't look anything at all like their picture It's kind of like lying Don't waste their time You might be wonderful, so put that out there for who you are, not lying because your picture is something different And if you go to meet them, coffee is a good suggestion

Don't have to go and make it a big long drawn out meal It's really just to see, are you attracted to this person Do you have chemistry or not? And take your time Get to know the person and enjoy it This is Donna Barnes, life and dating coach in New York City

In this clip, we'll talk about things to talk about with your crush And really, anything that you know that he's interested in, or she's interested in, and if you don't know that, ask Ask what do they like to do in their time off? What do they find fun? Don't ever talk about other guys or other girls They don't want to hear about other people That's not a way to, you know, making them jealous is not a good way to impress them

Try, don't be silly Just kind of be yourself Try to be mature if you can Guys don't like giggly girls and things like that I know you might feel nervous, but try not to to act like a young silly girl, and ah, really just talk about anything that interests you

Maybe you can interest him in something else that he'd never been interested in before But gauge his attention If he seems like he's not paying attention to your, to your story, then don't keep it up Make sure the conversation goes both ways This is Donna Barnes from New York City

Hi, I'm Donna Barnes I'm a life and dating coach and owner of NY Dating Coach here in New York City

In this clip, we'll talk about how to find the best Internet dating, and well, there's three of the big guys First one is matchcom, and it definitely has, I think, believe they have fifteen million people You can search for free You can say you're a woman looking for a man, you can pick the age range, you put in your zip code, and just ah

head on to see what all they'll give you You can browse through profiles and look at pictures of people You can create your own free pre, profile before you even have to join, so match

com is a pretty successful way of meeting people Next, there's eHarmonycom which goes about it a little bit differently They give you a free compatibility test that, to be honest, takes a couple hours to fill out, but then they send you matches You don't have to look at matches yourself

They tell you what's most compatible for you, and then there's Yahoo Personals, which again, allows you to create a free profile and do searches without signing up and on both match and Yahoo, you have to sign up in for a pay account before you can actually communicate with people This is Donna Barnes from New York City

Dating Tips & Online Dating : How to Talk to a New Boyfriend

Hi, I'm Donna Barnes I'm a life and dating coach and owner of NY Dating Coach here in New York City

In this clip, we'll talk about how to talk to a new boyfriend, and be yourself is the best advice I can give you, and I know that's hard when you get nervous, but rule number one, never ever talk about past relationships Guys want to feel like they're thee only man in your life They don't want to hear about all these other past stuff, so cut that off If he asks about your past, make it brief and and don't linger on that, and in the beginning of a relationship, it's really discovering the things that your, you have in common and that you'll be able to do together because commonality is a big part of what makes a relationship successful, so talk about what you like to do, talk about your hobbies Share a little bit about your family history, but if you have some big, horrible family secret, save that for when you get to know each other

Trust needs to be established, so you don't want to spill out all your deep dark secrets until you really know that you can trust this person to value what you tell them, and to not hold it against you So, this is Donna Barnes from New York City

Dating Tips & Online Dating : Dealing With Interracial Dating

Hi, I'm Donna Barnes, I'm a life and dating coach and owner of NY Dating Coach here in New York City In this clip we'll talk about dealing with interracial dating

And really, you don't have to deal with it, you just need to be loving and open with each other and if anybody else is going to react badly to you, call them on it Either don't continue to be in their company or maybe approach it with them and hopefully help them see that all people are the same on the inside but maybe they just have different customs and cultures and explore that with each other It's really a great opportunity when you meet somebody from a different culture to learn something new and you can share something of your culture with them So if you can make it a really wonderful positive learning experience, and show that to other people, then I think they'll be more comfortable with it And obviously if you're in that relationship you're comfortable with it anyway, so just really respect each other for who you are as a human being

Dating Tips & Online Dating : What Smells Attract Men?

Hi, I'm Donna Barnes, I'm a life and dating coach and owner of NY Dating Coach here in New York City In this clip we'll talk about what smells attract men and the very basic one is your own

There's been recent scientific study that's learned about pheromones, and pheromones are the same things that attract animals to each other They've always known that, that exists, but recently they've learned that humans have a little detector in their nose as well So, really where chemistry comes from is from smell It's subconscious that when we meet somebody whose smell is appealing to us, that's what makes us attracted to them That's where the chemistry comes from

So, if you have a date, make sure that you just smell clean Make sure you smell clean and fresh and like yourself, and if you do wear any kind of scent, make sure it's a light one, body lotions are good They do say that vanilla, cinnamon and lavender are all scents that men like So, maybe try some natural body lotion that has a little bit of that This is Donna Barnes from New York City
