If you are looking at a guy’s profile, and there is something that concerns you, instead of just closing the match, why not reach out and ask a question? There is no magic formula to this, so adjusting expectations and settling into the journey with a patient mindset will make the process a more positive one.
Does a guy really need to be 4 inches taller than you? Are there other areas you could compromise on a bit?
There is no such thing as a perfect person – so getting realistic about what you are looking for (and what is out there!
) will help open the door to more potential partners.
Many men say they are thrilled when a woman actually reaches out first.
Why not shoot for more "middle of the road" on areas that aren't deal breakers?
What if an amazing guy lived just outside of your 30 mile perimeter?
Seriously, take a good look at your settings and consider being more flexible. Consider changing them from a 7 – the extreme – to a more moderate one.
Way too many people write exactly the same things on their profiles.
So much so that a discussion about it has been started on Advice. No more “I live life to the fullest,” “I like to paint the town red,” “I’m drama free,” “I like to take things slow,” or “I’m looking for my best friend.” Try and show a little originality.
