The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

But there it is, and apparently ABC decided it was a worthy topic, as they aired their “Hooking Up” ABC News Special last night. Thank goodness we have this kind of real, gritty reporting to keep us abreast of the times, times where, apparently, the worst of our world problems are not being able to get a date online.

“Hooking Up” followed the trevails of four women trying to.. you know… hook up, online. Things didn’t go particularly well, because, well, becauase if they had gone well it wouldn’t have made for good tv, right?


And let’s face it, the Internet is the dating woman’s oyster, right fellows? I mean, if you think it’s hard for women in online dating, just try being a man in the onlien dating world. Am I right, guys?

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 15, 2005 — Last night, millions of Americans watched four single women stumble through the world of online dating on the ABC News Special, Hooking Up. But why did almost every date that these attractive ladies went on end in tears, anger, or frustrated laughter?

According to ProfileHelper.com’s Lead Profile Advisor, Eric Resnick, the problems start for these women (and most online daters) well before the first date ever happens. “With online dating, the tone for the whole relationship is set in the profile, photos, and the way that people make first contact,” Eric says “Sometimes a single word can be what stops your soul mate from replying to your ad.”

One of the most common profile faux pas that the ProfileHelper advisors see is when people express their baggage in their ad. “You really want to keep your baggage stored in the overhead compartment when it comes to online dating,” says Eric. “Things like honesty and loyalty are expected human traits. Asking for them in your profile makes it sound like you still haven’t gotten over the ex who cheated or lied to you in the past. That alone can scare off a lot of potential matches.”

 

One of the most important things that Eric wants online daters to know is that there are experts out there who can help them succeed. “People seek out experts for help with their resumes all the time. Your online dating profile and photo are like your relationship resume. ProfileHelper.com is here to help you with everything from your profile or photo to figuring out which dating site is best for you and how to make that first contact.”

ProfileHelper.com was created to provide online daters the assistance and expertise necessary to excel in the search for love on the internet. ProfileHelper is a wholly owned subsidiary of J-Tech Inc. Let ProfileHelper.com help you make a great first impression.
