Confident Dating for Plus-Size Women

By: TangoWire

Lots of men today prefer a woman with some meat on their bones instead of a scrawny woman who is all bones and angles.  You’ll discover lots of men who are looking for someone just like you – amply endowed, with lots more of you to love!

Every woman has insecurities about her appearance when she’s dating.  If you’re a plus size woman, you may feel even more insecure when dating because the media is so focused on the desirability of thin women.  Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of thinking that your dating life can’t be successful until you lose weight.  Instead, learn to love yourself just the way you are and focus on your best features.  You’ll soon find yourself in a wonderful relationship with someone who appreciates all of you.

Seniors: Back In the Dating Game After Years of Marriage

By Avery Williams (Staff)

Whether you've divorced after years of being married or you're a widow or widower, it can be intimidating to think about dating again. The rules have changed over the years and you probably worry that you just don't know how to step into the dating life again. You aren't alone; millions of singles in their retirement years are discovering that they long for companionship after they've lost a spouse to divorce or death. The key to success for seniors is being honest with themselves and anyone they're dating about what they're really looking for.

Your Online Dating Profile Picture Matters

Your online dating profile may be a great one, but if the profile photo is a dud, many people will pass you by without reading a word.  You may already know that a good head and shoulders shot is best for your profile picture and that you shouldn’t post a photo from five years ago.  But did you know that what you’re wearing in your profile picture can also have an impact on your online dating chances?

Dressing for success in dating is different than dating for success in business.  You want to look approachable and friendly; the focus isn’t on professional and competent (unless you’d rather be his or her CPA than girlfriend or boyfriend).

Gay Dating Personals

By Eric Morris

When you are single, meeting potential dates is intimidating. But men who date men have an additional worry to contend with: “When they learn I am gaywould they avoid me?”

This, however, does not imply that there are slim chances of finding gay men who would be interested in dating. The logic is, if you like a certain type of person (gay, in this instance), go where those types of people go. However, if you are shy of venturing into a gay bar, or live in an area that is not gay friendly, gay personals are a discreet way to connect with others in the gay community.

The days of negative stereotypes for personals are gone. Millions of people are finding compatible partners through personals, and gay personals are a good option to find gay men.  Whether you are looking for a relationship, a sex partner, or someone to hang out with, gay personals provide a meeting ground for same-sex guys to meet singles.

Keep Him (or Her) Guessing

By: TangoWire

When you haven’t met someone face to face, it can be difficult to keep your emails interesting and fresh, so spewing every detail about your personal life, your beliefs and your goals into the first few emails can be counter-productive...

Keep Him (or Her) Guessing

How much should you reveal about yourself when you’re using an online dating service? Although you want to be forthcoming in your answers to certain questions when you begin corresponding with someone you’ve met online, remember that too much information early on can be overwhelming.  When you haven’t met someone face to face, it can be difficult to keep your emails interesting and fresh, so spewing every detail about your personal life, your beliefs and your goals into the first few emails can be counter-productive.

Four Great Lesbian First Dates

By Cameron Keene (staff writer)

You’ve met someone great online, and you’re ready to meet her, but you don’t know where to go for that crucial first date. The key is to meet somewhere casual so you don’t end up trying too hard or feeling uncomfortable. Forget trying to impress her by going someplace expensive and intimidating, and bypass the movies. How much will you learn about each other if you’re both staring at the screen for two hours in the dark? Avoiding lesbian bars or club is also a good idea. After all, you want to focus on each other, not everyone around you. A noisy club can also make meaningful conversation difficult. Instead, focus on finding a location that’s neutral but fun and that will encourage conversation without being intimidating.

4 Tips For Turning A Friend Into A Girlfriend

By David Wygant

For any of you who have been in the friend zone with a woman and wondered if there was a way out of it, here are four tips to help you get a woman to look at you in a different way:

1. Don't Sell Yourself: If you meet and become friends with a woman who has a boyfriend, don't sell yourself to her her at all. Get to know her over a period of time. If a woman is attracted to you as a person, she could become attracted to you a significant other. It all depends on at what place she is in her life. We all know that many relationships tend to "go south" and end. The problem is that a lot of men will meet a woman who is in a relationship and decide not to befriend her at all. Now we are not suggesting that you become the shoulder she comes to cry on when things are going wrong with her boyfriend. What we are suggesting is that you can get to know her as a person, because you never know where life may lead you down the road. So don't be a salesman, and don't berate her boyfriend. Get to know her. Be yourself. Have a good time with her, and see if natural chemistry develops between you. When you are genuine and take the time to get to know her as a person, she actually might start to look at you in a different light and end her relationship.

Choosing An Interracial Dating Site

If you are looking for love with a person outside of your ethnic group, there are a few things you should consider before joining a dating site.

Choosing a reputable interracial dating website is the first thing you should do. Because mixed race relationships are becoming more common, it won’t be difficult to find one with a decent size membership base. It is important you do your homework first though. Read reviews from other people regarding the site and make sure you are aware of any cost that may be involved. When writing about yourself and your ideal mate in your profile remember to be sensitive to the fact that the people looking through it may have different cultural differences to yourself. Avoid slang terminology and stereotypes, even if it is seen as socially acceptable or you believe it to be humorous. Your profile is your first impression, in the 30 seconds it takes a person to read it; they will form an opinion on you. This is why it is important to make sure that their opinion is a true reflection of the real you.

5 Quick Tips For Dealing With Rejection

By David Wygant

So there you are at the deli counter getting a sandwich, when that person you're attracted to comes and stands right next to you at the counter. You've seen them over and over again at the store, and you finally have the guts to turn and smile at them . . . and they do NOTHING in return. They just look at you almost like you're not even there. They almost look right through you like you don't exist.

So you grab your sandwich and run out of there as quickly as you possibly can, saying to yourself “I will NEVER do that again. This doesn't work. The next time I go back there I am just not going to smile anymore.” Is this the best way to deal with rejection? How do you personally deal with rejection? More importantly, are you someone who believes that if you become “good” at dating that you will no longer get rejected?
