Take Advantage of the New Year’s Rush

Friday, December 29th, 2017

New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day are the busiest periods for online dating website with thousands of new members rushing to join dating websites and to change their live for the better. So, with just a few days to go, how can you get prepared for the flurry of new people?

Join up now

If you haven’t already joined a dating website, now is the time to do so! It doesn’t take long to join Muddy Matches — just fill in some basic details and write a few short lines about yourself for your online dating profile text.

From there you will receive a confirmation email from us to say that your profile has been approved. This can take some time as each profile is read by a member of our customer care team.

Make your photo stand out

Try updating your photo with something colourful and well lit to help it to stand out from all the blues, blacks and greys that people typically wear. Opt for a vibrant colour like red if you want to be festive.

Also, don’t forget to smile as it will make you look friendly and approachable.

Update your opening line

If your opening sentence says ‘I don’t know what to say’, or ‘I never thought I’d join a dating website’, it’s time to chance it!

Try to use your first sentence to sum up who you are. For example, ‘Fun-loving arable farmer with a passion for quad-biking and cooking Italian cuisine’ lets you know a lot about the writer in just one sentence and will encourage people to read on.

Save a search term

With all the new members joining it can take a lot of time to search for what you want, so it is a good idea to save a search. For example, you could set your search criteria by age, gender and location to save time at a later date.
