Keep Your Online Dating Enthusiasm Up!

Today’s blog post is for all of you countryside singles out there who have been online dating with Muddy Matches for a while but who still haven’t found their special someone. The main message we have for you is ‘Don’t Give Up!’ There are some simple and easy things you can do to keep you going and keep your interest up if you’re questioning whether you’ll ever meet someone.

1. Take a break

Finding online dating more disheartening than uplifting? It’s time to take a break. Give yourself off a week, or two, or three, off any online dating sites or apps and hide your profile. Taking a break will let you take the pressure off yourself, give you space to focus on your life, family and friends, and hit the mental refresh button so you come back full of verve and energy to continue your search.

2. Review your search criteria

Are you tired of seeing the same profiles again and again? Take a thoughtful look at your search criteria. Are you being too specific or, even, unrealistic? Open your search options out and keep an open mind. The right person may have been there all along.

3. Set up a quick search

We understand that online dating can be time-consuming, so why not make use of our quick search function? You can set up certain search criteria and save the search, rather than having to start from scratch every time. Perfect!

4. Review your own profile

Coming back to online dating after taking a little break is the perfect time for you to review and refresh your own profile. Remember; online dating with Muddy Matches is as much about them finding you as it is you finding them. Check that your dating profile is fully filled out, your interests and hobbies are up to date, and your photos are fresh and relevant.

5. Avoid comparing yourself

It’s difficult to avoid comparisons with other people, especially in our social media-centric world. All around you, people may be pairing up and having babies. Whatever you do, try not to compare yourself and where you are in life with them; what’s the point of adding extra pressure? Finding the right person for you takes time and it’s better to wait to meet someone who deserves you than coupling up with someone who isn’t right.
