So you just met this amazing guy online, but it sounds too good to be true. You find yourself wondering if he is actually the person he says he is. You decide to just wait it out, only to find out that two months later when you meet in person that he has been lying about who he is this whole time.
Online dating is difficult because you do not have the same capabilities as you do in a person on person relationship. You have to trust this person more then you would at the beginning of any other relationship. This...Click here to continue →

What sounds fun and quirky to you could, accidentally, come off as creepy weird or sexually perverted if you are not careful! Look at some of the blunders people make:
“I’m very new to dating but since I’m 25 I figure it is time that I try this thing out!”
“I can’t accurately describe myself in the pitiful text allowance they gave us.”
“I am allergic to almost everything so we won’t be able to do much, but hopefully I’ll react to you just fine!”
“This profile is merely a depiction of what you think of when you decipher these words into terms that...Click here to continue →

Sending that first email can be exciting and nerve wracking. You want to make an impression but not the wrong impression that gets you into the spam box. After you begin typing, you wonder if you’re making any sense in what you’re writing or if you should even bother. Move past the self-doubt and send that first email to someone you found on CupidMarket that you would like to hear back from.
Do NOT use the same generic message for each potential interest. First off, people aren’t stupid, your recipient knows his name is not Troy. You can address them with their...Click here to continue →

How often have you found a date via an online dating service like Cupidmarket.com, had a bunch of great conversations via your favorite instant messaging service and then found out that, in person, that date is not nearly as charming as you thought she would be? The same words and phrases when said out loud by this (you thought) great girl suddenly seem condescending, rude or obnoxious. What happened? Why is she suddenly so hard to talk to?
Getting to know someone online can be great—especially for people who are shy when meeting someone face to face for the first time. ...Click here to continue →

So you’ve found someone you like on CupidMarket and now you’re talking about meeting. It’s your first date but having met online, you want to make sure the first date is in a public setting. Of course, you want the date to go smoothly and have it somewhere you both will enjoy.
Choose to have coffee and conversation at a popular dessert place. There’s nothing like having your favourite dessert and coffee on a patio or inside where the atmosphere is bustling with conversations.
If both of you love books, why not choose to have coffee in a popular bookstore. The larger bookstores usually...Click here to continue →

You’ve probably heard a lot about online dating and you may even have friends who’ve tried it, some successfully, others perhaps not so successfully. You’ve explored pretty much every dating avenue out there, from blind dates to personal ads and you never seem to meet the right person in a bar. And the last time you dated a co-worker it ended up turning into a pretty awkward situation at the office. So that still leaves meeting someone online. Perhaps you’ve been avoiding it up until now because you’re afraid you can’t afford it. The good news is that with free...Click here to continue →

Some people think that blogging is helping to ease the negative stigma that surrounds online dating. Blogging exploded in 2004 where, seemingly overnight it went from something only a few “weirdos” did to everyone and their pets deciding that having a personal website would be “like, the awesomest thing ever!” Suddenly bloggers were having blogger meet ups and meeting friends via the internet didn’t seem quite so weird. Thankfully, online dating and finding dates via sites like ours is slowly gaining the same acceptance.
This does not mean, however, that the online dating and blogging should mix.
Here’s the thing. I’m a...Click here to continue →

Once upon a time people used the personal ads in the newspaper to find new people to date. A person would take out an ad and be assigned an identification number. When people responded to the ad, they would write their letters and address them to the identification number listed in the ad. The newspaper would then forward the responses on to the person. Funny how meeting someone through the personal pages did not carry nearly the stigma that meeting someone through an internet based match service used to have.
Thankfully, this stigma seems to be waning. This is partially thanks...Click here to continue →

According to an article posted by New York Daily News online, the downturn in our economy could be helping online dating websites. According to one of the experts interviewed for the article, people are staying in more often and are looking for ways to “perk up” their new frugal “staying in habits.” Not so coincidentally the sales of Kama Sutra products have risen by as much as twelve percent in the last year. Wowza.
According to experts, people spend more time looking for long term relationships when the economy is bad. Why, you ask? Is it for the added income as...Click here to continue →

The dating scene can be tough, regardless of whether you’re a young and inexperienced single, or a recent divorcee who hasn’t been on a date since before you were married. So many times you go out on a date with someone you hardly know, that cute girl from the club last weekend, that handsome guy from the bookstore. You end up spending time with someone you hardly know.
But wouldn’t it be so much easier if you could take the time to get to know somebody in a safe, non-threatening fashion before you actually wasted an evening checking your watch...Click here to continue →
