We love getting updates from our CB Friends. Michael is one of our happy customers!

“We just confirmed a flight. I fly to Manila July 28.

 

We owe CB so much. 13 months of communication via video phone, chat, anyway we can; it’s finally here.

 

Our dreams are coming true. And that’s all because of blossoms and a one of a kind woman.

 

There are good men and women out there that just want real love. A man has to prove it, and a woman deserves it.

 

We’ll be in touch. But from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you! ”

Wishing you safe travels to Manila and all the best in your new life with your special lady <3

10 Do’s and 10 Don’ts to Remember When Online Dating

Hey Guys AND Gals,

 

Bob with the CB Staff here.

 

Do you ever wonder, “Why am I not getting responses to my online messages? What can I do to make my profile more attractive?”

 

Here are some of the things which will get you into trouble and reduce your chances of finding  a great online date.  These are TEN obvious things you should avoid doing, and TEN ways to fix  them.

 

Fix ’em and improve your profile- a better profile means better results for YOU.

 

 DON’T just rely on having a great photo:  While it’s been proven that having a great photo is important, it’s also important to have some good text. If all you have is a great photo and haven’t committed at least a little time to putting your profile information together, it shows.  

 

DO: Have at least one great photo AND spend a little time and put together a great profile- spend some time writing about what you like to do, who you are, and what you’re searching for in a partner.

 

 DON’T use a photo that that’s old:  This is one of the biggest online dating sins because once you start emailing back and forth a couple times you’re bound to end up on a video chat. What happens when you meet and you don’t look like the picture? What can you say about that?

 

DO: Use a current photo that shows you at your best. It can be a selfie, or have a friend take one of you. Action shots (you doing something you love, ATVing, fishing, diving) get a lot of attention.

 

 DON’T get sloppy with spelling and grammar:  If your spelling and grammar are horrible other members may think that you don’t care or, at worst, are not very smart. Sorry, it’s the truth.

 

DO: Take the time to use spell check, give your ad the once over or even have a friend look over your ad  before you post. If you’ve already posted, it’s ok to go back and update it later.

 

DON’T lie.  It can get very difficult to keep track of all the little fibs you tell when you make a habit out of it. If you talk a lot, or email a lot, it’ll show you to be untrustworthy.  

 

DO: Be your real self. The real you is pretty good. After all, isn’t that who you want people to fall in love with?

 

DON’T write a novel in your profile. Nobody wants to know you’re gluten intolerant or you live with your brother right off the bat. It can be overwhelming to people who are viewing  your profile.

 

DO: Leave a little bit of mystery. Save your life story for conversing later while you’re getting to know someone. You’ll have more to talk about.

 

 DON’T make your entire profile a list. If your profile looks like a laundry list of “I Don’t Want to Meets”, you’re probably not going to get many responses.  

 

DO: *Briefly* talk about the kind of person you are and the kind of person you’d like to meet. Focus on the positives.

 

 DON’T be weird: Let’s face it. Coming on too strong can be a real turn off.  Don’t bring up sex up right away. Be a little conservative in your first messages.  For example, “I just want to cuddle and listen to your heartbeat” can be kind of scary for someone you’ve just met.

 

DO: Save the sweet (or sexy) stuff for when you get to know them better and they get to know you better.

 

DON’T get attached to someone just based on a photo and a profile, no matter how great the profile picture and text are. There is still a lot you don’t know and can’t know until you’ve had a chance to talk to them.

 

DO:  Slow down and take your time to know the other person before you make a decision on if they’re the right one for you.

 

DON’T send money.  It can be hard when you really think you found someone and they suddenly have a hardship and request money from you.  

 

DO: No, just DON’T. Don’t send money for any reason, especially if you haven’t met them in person. Be sure to report their profile to our customer service team if they do.

 

DON’T be a arrogant or a grump. If all you do is talk about all the bad experiences you’ve had, people pick up on that. If you don’t like to chat or email with people who are constantly moping or bragging, what makes you think other people will want to, too?

 

DO: Be positive. Most people wanting to meet someone online are looking for someone who will be fun to be around. It’s ok to talk yourself up a little bit, but don’t stretch it too much.

 

From experience, we know that it’s hard to go wrong if you just stay honest. Write and talk in a mature and adult way. Be respectful of – it’ll keep things interesting.

here’s a lot of singles  who are looking for love, just like you.

 

Aloha,

The Time is Now: Schedule Travel To Asia to See Your Girlfriend or Fiancée.

TraveltoAsia

Cherry Blossoms Friends,

 

With oil prices at a 10 year low, airline ticket prices are slowly coming down. This is great news for you if you’re looking to save money on a flight to see your lady!

 

Of course, you’re going to want to plan ahead. A recent study concluded that the best time to book your international flight to Asia (and save the most money) is 160 days in advance.

 

Additionally, it’s best to purchase tickets well in advance if traveling internationally. If you’re planning on travelling to the United States, it’s recommended you buy 54 days in advance. If you’re looking at traveling to Europe, it’s best to purchase tickets 120 days in advance.

 

Cherry Blossoms members, if you’re looking at traveling to see your girlfriend or fiancee AND you want to get the cheapest tickets, right now is the right time to book your tickets.

 

Aloha,

 

Bob

What Makes Great Online Dating Site Profile Photos?

Pretty Asian woman

Hey everybody,

 

I was just reading a new study that show why some online dating profile pictures work and some don’t.   This study makes total sense when you think about it; what men and women like in a profile photo are very different.   

 

This study  discovered women like photos of men who show pride and confidence.  Pride and confidence will make you seem more masculine. I am not talking about a picture of you with your shirt off and flexing your muscles or in the bathroom mirror -in our experience these will actually decrease your chances of successfully dating online. Guys,  I am talking about photo of you dressed nicely, smiling, and  looking directly into the camera. Setting is important too:  we’ve noticed women seem to prefer photos of men taken outdoors.

 

Don’t be afraid to ask a friend for help taking pictures. While  men don’t seem to mind selfies on a woman’s profile, women tend to see men posting selfies in a dating profile as being vain.

 

Ladies! Men, on the other hand, preferred photos of women who looked “happy and approachable”.  Be sure to smile! Several studies have shown that the left side of the face is more expressive- so show your left side when taking photos.

 

Consensus here at CB is that you want to dress a little on the conservative side as photos that are too provocative can lead to the wrong kind of attention. Wear some bright colors and outfits that highlight your natural features.

 

Don’t put pictures of yourself with your exes or children in profile pictures. These are important details (if you’ve been divorced, if you have children) but your profile should be about YOU. Share this information on your personal ad; you can and should be upfront about having kids or being previously married.

Guys AND Gals-this is the most important part.

Put on a current picture.   Once you meet someone online it will be a short time before you’re video chatting and it will be hard to explain if you look differently from your profile photo.   Always keep your photos and profile real  and remember the right person will come along and accept you for who you are. Meeting online and having long distance relationships can work.
