Chapter 1: All About How A Dating Service Works
On a dating web site you'll often receive a number of responses very quickly but then as the days go past you receive fewer and fewer until they all but dry up. It does seem that most profiles do have a limited life span on almost every peersonals web site. The best way around this is to keep your profile fresh by updating it every few weeks. Of course, some people may remember your username and so not bother to read your updated profile but most won't, especially after a while has gone by.

Changing your profile gives you the excellent opportunity to experiment with your dating web site - a lot! Maybe you were a little too light hearted before? Perhaps you were too serious? It can actually be quite a lot of fun changing your profile and seeing the sort of responses you get from people. This fine tuning should continue until you find partners that you feel you might want to meet up with in person. Almost any quality online personals site can give you the tools to make your search easier and give you the opportunities to contact many new people. Some people believe that once they've registered with a personals site that they don't need to do anything else except wait for the responses to flood in. In some cases this is true but it is still important to make sure that you've been absolutely honest and made the effort to think about the sort of person you want to meet before answering all the questions. After all, most people would like to find their one true soulmate rather than a hundred people that are 90% right for them. This is the reason why we believe that a detailed matchmaking site is far better than simply a listing service. You probably don't have the time to go through thousands of personals ads and in any event eventually you'll become so bored with the whole process that you wouldn't notice the perfect person even if they jumped out of the computer and said "Hello!" to you. Make sure that you do use a matchmaking site that offers a service that matches both on your requirements and on those of other users. For instance you may be 30 years old and wish to meet someone who is 24 to 28 years of age. However, you wouldn't want a 24 year old person to be presented on a profile to you if they hadn't specified that they were happy to meet a 30 year old person. Hence, good matchmakers match both ways.
Of course you shouldn't change your profile too often. It's easy to change it at 8pm and then again at 8.30pm if you haven't received any responses. We would recommend updating things say once a month. In that time most other people that also use your dating agency will have forgotten the detail in your profile and so won't realise that you've changed it at all. You could also change your photograph at the same time - the human brain tends to remember images far more easily than words on a page.
