The Insider’s Guide to a Winning International Online Dating Profile

insidersguide

 

Creating an online dating profile can be a scary prospect. While the idea of long distance dating and dating Asian women may sound exciting, it’s a virtual guarantee that you’ll be destined for failure if you don’t spend some time upfront on this important task.

You may be the greatest guy in the world and have a lot to offer, but online dating requires that you put your strengths in writing and stand out from the crowd. Sounds suspiciously like a job interview, doesn’t it? While there are similarities, this is so much more fun if you do it right! Consider these key profile elements as you get started:

Grab ‘Em Fast!

One of the first things that people are going to see is the first line in your profile. It would be a good idea to spend some time making this distinctive and intriguing. Some people like to use song lyrics for headlines while others throw out a bit of humor. Whichever way you choose to go with it, keep it clean and non-controversial and you should be just fine.

Details Please

It should come as no surprise that the profiles that attract the most attention are the most well-written ones. This doesn’t mean that you need to be a professional writer or that you should hire one to excel here.

What you will need to do is set yourself apart from the “I like music and I love to laugh” crowd. While it’s ok to share that you enjoy a good time, provide specific examples of hobbies or activities that you appreciate so that readers can get a better sense of who you are.  For example, try “I like jazz music and eating Thai food”. You get the idea.

When writing your profile, be clear about your objectives and avoid any impulse to either be dishonest or negative in any way. Tell the ladies what you want! “I want to meet a nice woman for romance and love.”

A Picture is Worth…

Well, it’s worth a lot! To begin with, having some good images on your profile is worth not having your profile automatically excluded from searches as many women simply won’t even glimpse a profile that that doesn’t have a picture. As a general rule, posting photos will your profile will get you ten times as many responses as a profile without them! As your photos could be one of the most important elements of your dating profile, here are few tips to make sure you’re on the right track:

  •         For your main profile photo, choose a picture of just you, so there is no guesswork involved.

 

  •         Avoid using your computer’s webcam for photos as these generally turn out pretty dreadful.

 

  •         Post images that show your friendly side, with a normal and easy smile.

 

  •         Include at least two photos and preferably four or more.

 

  •         It’s not considered a good idea to post pictures of yourself with the opposite sex, even if is your sister! Many women find this a turn off and it can be very confusing. More confusion leads to less responses.

There is plenty of conflicting advice about international online dating that can make things confusing for someone new. While the stigma of long distance dating has virtually disappeared, if you want to meet Asian women online, you’ll need to start by working on your profile. If you use the pointers we’ve given you here, you will stand out from the crowd and have the experience you desire. That’s a promise!

Top Asian Dating Misconceptions

The Top Misconceptions About Dating Asian Women

 

While the idea of dating Asian women is appealing to many men, some just approach the entire enterprise from the wrong perspective. Perhaps it’s a lifetime of being exposed to stereotypes of Asian women in Western movies or other popular culture that forms our beliefs. Regardless, there are many false ideas about Asian dating that are not going to serve your best interests. Here are the top misconceptions about Asian women that could be holding you back.

All Asian Women Are the Same

To lump all Asian women into one class and expect them to be the same is naivety at its best. We don’t expect that Italian women will be the same as German women, or even that someone from California will behave like someone from Wisconsin. All Asian women are not the same. Consider this: Asia includes 51 different countries and a total population of 4.3 billion people. China alone is made up of 23 separate provinces (and 11 other divisions), with as many as 292 languages spoken in the country. These are diverse cultures with very different people and to lump them all together would be a mistake.

 

Asian Women Are All Submissive

If you are solely interested in Asian dating because you believe that all Asian women are submissive, you may be in for an awakening. Long-standing stereotypes lead Western men to think that the typical Asian woman can be found trailing her man by several paces with her head bowed. While you may be able to find your dream subservient mate if you look long enough, this isn’t today’s reality. Filipina women are known to be intensely loyal as well as headstrong. In China, Shanghainese women are more dominant. Finally, there is a culture in the Yunnan Province in Western China in which the male can be kicked out of the home at any time, and often is at the whim of the female. This isn’t the norm, as what you are more likely to find are polite women who lack some of the drama that Western women tend to exude. Takeaway? Don’t assume anything with regards to Asian women and treat each one as an individual worthy of respect.

 

All Asian Women Want a Western Man

While Western men are attractive to many Asian women for a variety of reasons, this isn’t universal. A Western man can’t just assume that any Asian woman he runs across is going to fall at his feet. Many Asian women today have come to realize that the grass may not be greener on the other side of the fence. When it comes to money, security is just as important to women in other cultures as it is to yours, so wanting someone who can provide this isn’t a race issue. Even if a majority of Asian women don’t want anything to do with Western men, let’s still do the math. Remember those 4.3 billion people in Asia? If just 25% of the females desired a Western man, you’d have a pool of over a half a billion women as potential mates. Those aren’t bad odds.

 

Online Asian dating offers willing singles an opportunity to connect and have fun. Your best approach is to ditch the misconceptions about Asian women and simply approach your Cherry Blossoms experience as the adventure it was meant to be.

More Marriage-Minded Single Asian Women are on Cherry Blossoms

More Marriage-Minded Single Asian Women are on Cherry Blossoms!

Finding the right partner through online dating can be a daunting task. On many dating sites, members just want to have fun, or hook up, and are not searching for a serious relationship. The site with a difference is CherryBlossoms.com because most of its members are sincerely looking for a life partner.

Why?

Cherry Blossoms is known as the website with more marriage-minded singles. Don’t get me wrong; you can still find friends and have fun but you have a much greater chance of finding your soulmate than with other websites.

Here are two reasons why:

Some of the difference can be attributed to the fact there are a lot of Asian Christians, especially Christian Filipinas, on Cherry blossoms. If you’re a religious sort, it’s important to consider a potential partner’s religion, beliefs, family background, and Christian values.

Another major factor is demographics: a lot of women who use Cherry Blossoms are older and are looking to marry or enter serious long term relationships, not play around! If you’re serious about an honest to goodness relationship with someone, doesn’t it make sense to search for someone seeking the same thing?

It can make all the difference in the world when you’re looking to meet Asian women online.

If you’re looking for a Christian Asian woman, or are seriously looking to be in a relationship, Cherry Blossoms is the place for you.

Don’t be shy! Be confident, real, and honest about your intentions, we know you’ll find your soulmate!

Six Basic Things: Get More Responses from Women!

Six Basic Things

Six Basic Things to Get More Responses from Women

Hey Guys,

Bob here from the CB Staff.

I hate to keep mentioning these things again, but I feel like I need to drive this home.

These just seem to be some common problems and I am not sure why some guys don’t get them.

They’re easily fixed, too.

 

These are six BASIC things you can do to get more responses from women.

1. Use a good, current photo. Come on guys; this is basic. Post some good photos– no one wants to see you half-dressed or what you look like at your worst.

Seriously, have a friend take a good picture of you. If you don’t have any good pictures, try taking a selfie.

 

2. Check for spelling and grammar errors. Use spell check and give your profile the once over before you post it. When your profile is full of errors, it shows you don’t really care.

If you care about making a good first impression, take a little time to make your ad easy to read and understand.

 

3. Don’t be disrespectful to women. It’s okay to talk about what you are looking for in a woman. It’s not okay to tell the world that you don’t want a “princess”, “drama queen”, or a “chick with baggage”, etc.

Do you really think you’ll get positive responses if you focus on the negative?

Instead, write about the positive qualities you’re seeking in a woman: Things like “funny”, “faithful”, “down to earth”.

 

4. When you get message, answer in a timely fashion- even if it’s a “No.” If it’s no, be polite and say so. Don’t keep them dangling!

If it’s a yes, then respond appropriately. Start getting to know one another.

You DO need to answer in a timely fashion. No-one feels excited about a response that comes days, or even weeks, after they first contacted you.

 

5. Stay offline until you’re ready to move on. If you have some sort of ongoing relationship or or one that’s over but you’re not over it yet, stay offline until it’s completely done.

Men, especially, always seem to be in a big rush to start a relationship right away after their previous relationship has just ended.

Make sure you’re emotionally ready before going out and starting a new relationship.

 

6. Do not talk about sex in your first few contacts online. Instead, play it by ear and take it slow.

Don’t start a conversation by sending sexy pictures or hints of how good you are in bed. Try getting to know each other a little better before talking about sex.

 

I guarantee it will get you a lot more responses.

Basics, guys. Basics. Follow these guidelines and get on your way to meeting women online.

 

Aloha,
Bob
