This is a pretty common question for men to have. When you first sign up for a dating site, you are more than likely going to be at least a little bit enthusiastic about the possibility that you are going to have some success in attracting women. You might be a little bit skeptical at the same time, but there is probably going to be a part of you that at least HOPES that things go well. Of course, most men find that things don’t quite happen the way that they hope it would and they usually end up feeling like they are NOT getting the kind of attention that they would like to get. What can you do to make sure that doesn’t happen to you and that you DO get women to notice you on an online dating site?

Here are some tips that should at least help you out a little bit if you want to get attention from women on a dating site:
1. You have to choose to upload photos of yourself that show off a little bit of personality.
All you have to do is look at the kinds of photos that most men upload and you’ll see at least one reason why they are not getting the attention that they would like to get. Most men’s pictures are BORING and they make the guy look like he is boring. Okay, do you think that having a boring photo is going to make women feel like they want to get to know you? Probably NOT. Get yourself 5 or 6 different photos with different positions, facial expressions, etc and see which ones get the best response. You can change them around, so do that. When you find the one that gets the most attention, keep that as the main one that women see when they see your profile.
2. You also have to understand that getting attention means that you need to GIVE attention.
One of the worst mistakes that you can make is to sign up and do nothing after that. You can’t treat a site like it is a magical place where women are going to come out of the woodworks just because you put up a profile. You have to make contacts with women if you want to get attention. Most of the dating sites that are popular have some way of instant messaging or communicating with women on the site, so make use of that feature. If you end up doing nothing at all to start conversations, you really can’t complain if you end up not meeting anyone, right?
3. You need to try to spruce up your profile so that you seem like a really interesting guy.
Most sites have a way of filling out your profile so that you can kind of let someone know who you are before you speak with them. The way that most men do this is the lazy way. They put up a few boring lines of text and that’s it. What happens if a woman does like what she sees in your picture but then finds that you didn’t put up anything compelling to describe yourself? There is a good chance that she is going to end up passing on you. You don’t want that to happen, do you? If not, then try to take some time to fill out your profile in a way that really makes you seem kind of interesting so that there is a GOOD REASON for her to want to contact you.
