And if you've been struggling, what you can do to improve your odds.
It’s not all about who looks the best, according to Stef Safran, founder of Stef and the City dating service in Chicago.
“Certain geographical regions are definitely better for singles. The Sunbelt, for example, seems to attract a more laid back, casual type.
If you are a professional seeking another professional, you may want to cast a wider net.
Some may perceive a person as intimidating, and another may see them as vulnerable and sensitive.
Personality is an individual gift and is meant to be a part of the person that they accept.
By specialty, I mean a site where you share an interest with other online daters. If you’re older, or like most of us, don’t meet the media ideal of what a date should look like, then it’s going to be tougher.
If you’re not very tech savvy, you may not understand how to produce a good bio for the online site.
I often come across people who say, ‘I've tried online dating and HATE it,’ only to find out that they never wrote people, they waited for people to write them or didn't like who contacted them,” Safran said.Rural cities where it is tough to meet eligible singles have a fair share of online daters, but you are going to have to spend money and travel time to meet, because the odds of finding a compatible mate in a small town aren't that great.” No matter your personality, you can still have luck dating online, King-Gamble said.“While online dating is notorious for attracting introverts who come to life behind a computer, it provides a diverse pool of eligibles.“No matter if they are shorter, heavier, bald, etc., it comes down to the personality types that are willing to be rejected.I've seen men who are 5'6" have more dates than men who are 6'0" and I've seen overweight people meet more people than those who have model bodies.
