Time and time again, I see comments that dating sites don't work, people saying they aren't getting anywhere with online dating apps. Let me bring you in on a little secrete. Finding a date takes effort. I will say that again. Finding a date takes effort.
Break The Swipe, Like and Wait Habit
The emerging trend with dating sites is to use the photo swiping feature to find matches and like the people who interest you and ignore the people who don't appeal. But how many people who you find interesting are you contacting?
A person on a dating app can receive hundreds of likes each day, and most apps will send them the same notification each time they receive a like on their profile. When an app is sending the same like notifications to every member, it means you will not stand out amongst the other people who have also liked their profile. Sure you may have a fantastic profile picture that people love, but you won't be the only one who has excellent photos.
You will notice yourself that you get a message saying somebody has liked you, someday in interested in you, but how long will you be excited about receiving these notifications? Maybe a few days.
