Some dating sites have limited options when it comes to contacting
other singles. The best situation is when there are several different ways to make contact. this makes it so much easier. The "poke" feature, and similar options are great to use when trying
to get someones attention for the first time. That way you don't have to figure out what to write, but can still reach out. Messages are still a great way to start off, but it can be such a let
down when you spend a lot of time writing a personal and funny message, and then get a negative response. Many times you don't even get a response at all. That's why this feature can be such a
time saver on dating sites.
Another important thing that should be available for members on a dating site is the option to show matching users. This can be a great indicator of the singles that you might be interesting for you. The system that calculates matching people varies between every one of these sites. Some are working better than others, and some of them are better suited for certain people. The trick is to try different ones and see which works best for you. More information about which one could be the best one for you are available if you just search around the internet. Some of the aspects that can be evaluated and compared are interests, values and similar things. These are important to think about when searching for a date.
Depending on if you're looking for a short term fling, or a long term relationship, the shared values of you and your partner has varying significance. For a shorter relationship, it might not
matter as much if you share the same opinions and views. But if you are in it for the long term, it's often important to be able to get along with each other. That is why these calculations and
statistics that matches singles together can be so great.
The last thing we would like to talk about are pictures. Imagine if dating sites did not have the option of adding pictures to a profile. In one way it could be good, because people would look at the inner characteristics instead, but at some point you are going to meet and see how the other person looks. That is why we think it is important for dating sites to enable the option of adding pictures for their users. But we also believe it is crucial to have the possibility of hiding these images from non-friends, and only showing some of them to people who has been accepted by the user beforehand.
