Although Online Dating Sites are designed to look like a lot of fun, in truth there are hundreds of millions of dollars on the line – both from the dating sites themselves and their marketing dollars – to their members whose lives will irrevocably change as a result of the matches made there.
One in four single adults now use online dating services. At the rate the online dating industry is now growing, within five years nearly half of all singles will be using online dating sites. Millions of singles join dating sites every single day. The convenience of online dating makes it easy to meet compatible matches across town… across state… or across the country. Some of the most adventurous singles travel around the world to meet their matches! Online dating is no longer something “odd” or out of the ordinary. Today it’s the standard way to start a new relationship for 25% of single adults, and it will soon become the primary way people meet in the not-too-distant future.
There’s a lot of money, feelings, and life decisions resting on the success or failure of your dating efforts. And there’s no reason to take these risks alone. Now there are trained professionals to help you navigate the online dating services, saving you time, money, and many unnecessary heartaches. As a Professional Dating Coach, let me share a little about what I do to help make a client’s social life a bit easier.
One of the most difficult and challenging tasks faced by new online dating members is the chore of creating an Online Dating Profile. Your Dating Profile tells the world who you are, what you value, and who you’re looking for in a partner.
Your Dating Profile is essentially your online calling card – it’s your full-color Internet brochure that provides all of your marketing and advertising combined. Your Dating Profile, just like most Internet website pages, has to convince your reader in less than three seconds that your message is worth reading – otherwise they’ll click off of your profile and move onto the next one. A boring headline, a boring first paragraph, uninteresting text in your “About Me” section – any or all of these can spell disaster for you – dashing your hopes of connecting with someone who might otherwise become your Soulmate and lifelong partner.
When you consider how important your happiness really is – a lifetime of joy with someone with whom you can travel, make love, have a family, share friends, and build a home together – would you want to leave all of this to chance? Probably not.
Enter the Dating Coach
Many people spend years and thousands of dollars preparing for the entrance exams to college. And yet when you compare your college education to the success of your marriage, which one is more important to you? There are thousands of colleges and universities, so missing one still leaves you many others to choose from. But missing the chance to meet your Soulmate may leave you with the prospect of spending your life alone – or settling for a relationship – or marriage – with someone you just don’t love.
How a Dating Coach can Help
A Dating Coach can see the big picture of your life and help steer you in the right direction. Your Dating Coach will ask you probing, important questions and through his or her insights and special gifts, make suggestions that will bring out the best in you and help you express it in your Online Dating Profile for all the world to see. Although it’s certainly true that you could design your Dating Profile by yourself, it is equally true that you could do many other things yourself too that you would be best advised not to. For example, successful business owners don’t prepare their own tax returns – they use the professional services of an accounting firm. Most adults don’t build their own homes – they hire a contractor to help them. So why would you want to build your social life by yourself when a trained professional can help you create healthy relationships by using an intelligently designed strategy instead?
