Have you ever written a bucket list? You know the type of thing, making a list of around 10 to 30 things you want to do before you 'kick the bucket'; a fabulous Americanism for popping one's clogs (although a 'clog list' doesn't have quite the same ring to it!).

 

It's a great thing to do, it really is. We all have things we want to do... It could be a big as skydiving, yelling an obscenity into the Grand Canyon, or making one person smile every day, or learn to play the piano.

 

Studies show that the summer months are when we feel... more

We’re betting you can spot a cut and paste profile from a mile away. They say things like, ‘fun loving,’ ‘laid back,’ and ‘adventurous.’ But take note, if you can spot them easily, others can also see the amount of effort you’ve put into your own profile! If your profile is a list of adjectives that could describe almost anyone, you’re not going to have the kind of success you’re hoping for.


It’s so important, but it isn’t always easy. Here are our best tips for writing a delicious and juicy profile sure to spark interest in getting to know you better.... more

Making the move to a first date can feel like a double-edged sword.  You’re excited about the possibilities, but still, this is a person you don’t know.  How do you make such a nerve-wracking process comfortable for both of you? There are a number of do’s and don’ts, but one of the biggest pieces to help foster comfortability and connection is your location.

 

It used to be that first dates were about making a big impression with flowers, drinks, and a fancy restaurant.  Today, flowers are best reserved for further along in the relationship and fancy restaurants can be a buzz kill.  It usually doesn’t take long to get a feel for each other and know whether the possibility of connection exists.  If you don’t feel it, a long dinner at a fancy restaurant can end up being a bit torturous.... more

Whether it’s your first message or your fifth, there are two simple rules to writing a great message:


1. Find what you have in common.

2. Start a conversation about it.

That’s it.  You can think of it exactly like introducing two mutual friends to each other for the first time.  You search in your mind for what they might be interested in in each other and then take it from there – asking each other questions to get the conversation going.


If there was a third rule, it would be to relax. ... more

Meeting people online and building a rapport with them takes just as much care and attention as any of your other relationships. You get from them what you put into them. Our simplest advice is to avoid sending rushed messages, take things slow, ask good questions, and build upon what you have in common.

But if this is your first message to someone, or maybe your first message of this kind ever, we understand that you’re looking for a little more than that. We’ve put together some of our favourite examples in order to spark your imagination and get comfortable with meeting people online.

Some people just breeze onto the site, put up a few pics, connect with their chosen one and 'bang' they're off, hand in hand into the sunset. But it isn't always that easy! It was 4 very long years before I got together with my partner for life and many of us know what it's like being alone for a long time.

 Here's 10 simple steps to make connecting easier.
