Chapter 1: Online Dating 101
If you’re brand new to online dating, this first chapter will give you the basics to get you started – online dating vocabulary, choosing a dating site, paid vs. free sites, regular vs. geek dating sites, and more. If you’ve done online dating before, you may still want to give it a quick read – you never know when you’ll learn something new!
Chapter 2: The Curse of Knowledge (save ends) & The Chasm of SuckitudeTM
Every good adventure starts out with some drama, so I’m going to start with the curse that you’re suffering from (did you even know?) and the gaping chasm that you may fall in while trying to make your dating profile more attractive.
Chapter 3: Profiles that Stick: Your Personal Marketing Campaign
Your online dating profile is a mini-marketing campaign and the product is YOU. Since I work as a professional copywriter and a dating profile writer, I know a lot about how to make things (and people) look irresistible.
Chapter 4: Three Steps to a Great Profile
The best dating profile is one that is magnetic. It draws the reader in from the start and holds them there all the way to the end. When the reader reaches the end, they want nothing more than to contact you. Doesn’t that sound great? Stick with me through the next chapter and you’ll have the bones of a magnetic dating profile of your very own.
Chapter 5: A Picture Is Worth A Million Pixels
Dating profiles with pictures get significantly more clicks and emails than those without pictures. Dating profiles with good pictures get significantly more clicks and emails than those with bad pictures. Along with your headline and username, your pictures are part of your first impression. Are yoputting your best face forward? This chapter will teach you how to take and select pictures that get maximum results.
Chapter 6: A Geek By Any Other Screenname…
Your screenname is part of the trifecta of first impressions for your profile. It amazes me when people work so hard on the rest of their profile only to be Joe1972. In this chapter, you’ll learn about commonly used screennames, reason for and against using your regular handle, and the Gamma World method of screenname creation.
Chapter 7: Hot Headlines that Get Clicked
If you’re using the wrong headline, you’re missing out on an opportunity. This chapter will give you some quick & dirty tips to come up with a headline that reels in those mouse clicks!
Chapter 8: Geek Singles Aren’t Hard To Find: No Unicorns Here!
In this chapter, you’ll learn how to set up custom searches that cut your online dating “work” time down to just a few minute a day, including how to find the very people who want to hear from you the most!
Chapter 9: First Contact Emails
For my clients, I’ve found that emails are the most stressful thing after writing a good profile. In this chapter, you’ll learn why winks send the wrong message 99% of the time, tip & tricks to increase your rate of replies, common emailing mistakes, how to write a cut-n-paste email that is anything but cookie cutter, and how to manage your online dating inbox.
Chapter 10: First Dates are FUN, Not Scary!
I remember the very first date I went on with someone I met from an online dating site. My nerves were on edge. I'm sure yours are too, which is why I've written this chapter on how to make first dates fun and much less stressful.
Chapter 11: Sticky Situations & Safety
Online dating – and dating in general! – is full of etiquette, unspoken rules, and just plain ol’ interesting situations. If you are new to the scene or returning after being off the market for some time, it can seem confusing. In this chapter, you’ll find a list of frequently asked questions about various sticky situations in dating, as well as general guidelines on online dating safety.
Chapter 12: Troubleshooting: Regroup, Rinse, Repeat, ROCK!
