Improve Your Chances In The Dating Game

Tuesday, August 13th, 2019


When your dating life is going well (which is exactly how you want it to be) you feel more of many things – more positive, more energised, more adventurous, more witty, more beautiful…the list could go on for the rest of this blog.

If you are with a dating agency, you will probably have tender feelings towards the lovely person or people who introduced you to this wonderful individual.

But hey, what if everything in the garden isn’t quite as rosy as that? What if you’re not as popular as you thought you’d be? You might instead be feeling disappointed and maybe a bit cross – you may even be ready to blame the agency for this sorry state of affairs.

Before you do, look carefully at yourself.  Consider what you could do to improve things. Ask yourself these two simple questions:

  1. Am I choosing the kind of people who are likely to want to date me?

If YES, keep going. There is a big element of timing in finding the right person. He or she may not have arrived yet. The best things are worth the wait.

If NO, you may be stopping yourself from meeting the right person by being unrealistic in your expectations. That’s not easy to admit, but doing so is your first step in the right direction – next time you receive a profile that you are inclined to say NO to, say YES. You’ll be surprised by what you’ll learn about what really matters to you.

  1. What first impression is my profile giving?

At Sara Eden we always strive to ensure that all members present themselves really well. You have just a few seconds to make an impact, so if your photos are dark, unflattering, unclear or too cluttered you are unlikely to be chosen. We have decades of experience in selecting photos, so when we advise that yours don’t work, it’s worth listening.

Profiles are funny things – 400 words and a few snapshots – how on earth do you gain a sense of what someone is like in reality?  This dilemma is a good reason for joining Sara Eden: we know each and every one of our members personally and can advise you as to whether the person behind the profile is a potentially good match for you and crucially, we can advise them they should meet you. We take the guesswork out of dating.
