If at first you don’t succeed...

Don’t worry! Sometimes it takes a little while for your profile to get noticed on Classic FM Romance. Follow these tips to boost your online dating experience.

You’ve written your description, added a photo, got your profile online and then...nothing. It can feel like a bit of an anticlimax if your inbox isn’t immediately stuffed with potential dates, but don’t be downhearted.

Give yourself a chance. Some people have no response in the first two weeks, decide online dating doesn’t work and delete their profile; no wonder it doesn’t work for them. The trick here is patience; the longer you’re online, the more chance you’ll have.

Get involved! If you want to succeed, then you have to make an effort; you can’t be a wallflower if you want to find a date. Look through the site daily and get in touch with everyone that catches your eye. Don’t be overly picky as you can’t ever really tell if someone’s right for you until you meet them in real life.

Don’t take it personally. It’s helpful if you develop a bit of a thick skin. Sometimes people won’t reply to your e mails, but just shrug it off and go back to your searches. You know how great you are, so just chalk it up as their loss and move on.
