Behind the Scenes :  Thousands of inactive profiles removed
 
We just removed 5,000 profiles, of members who have not logged in for a very long time, and also removed members who have not attached photos to their profiles.

Some dating services claim to have hundreds of thousands of members. On close inspection, you find the profiles have been there forever,  the member has not logged in for years. We like to do things differently here at HeartofAsiaOnline.com, and SO, we have removed the dead wood. We think this is better for you, so you can see profiles of members who are sincere and have published their photo, and who are still available seeking their life partner.

Advice for Singles :  Are you planning to be Alone at Christmas?

What are your Plans for Christmas and New Years? Are you planning to be alone?

Do the math. If you don't want to be alone, and if you want to spend the holidays with your new Love, then you better get started to find him or her soon. 

It will take you all October to get organized and start making new friends. 

It will take you all November to start settling down on the right person. 

Then it is Christmas. God helps those that help themselves. If you don't want to be alone this Christmas, start looking for your new love today. If you do nothing now, maybe you will get around to it for Easter?


Advice for Singles : How to Write a Great Headline:  Part 2

Avoid Too Much Information
 
Too much information (TMI) is a chronic condition that is often found in the headlines of an online profile. It’s the first clue that you will probably never get a word in edgewise. A “Catladypianoplayerwithredhairandalazyeyelikesgettingherfeettickled” is someone who has a lot to say and is looking for someone to say it to. TMI headlines like this look needy and over-eager and even desperate. It is almost a guarantee that you will attract someone who is looking for a needy person and that is almost more sad.
 
Play it cool, aloof even. A headline should nonchalantly grab someone’s attention, not abuse it or talk it to death. TMI can happen to anyone; however it is a mistake that can be avoided by working under the auspices of a focus.
 
Not Enough Information
 
“Likes Dogs.” Unless you are actually a dog, a headline like this tells people nothing at all about you. Many people like dogs. There are uneducated people who like dogs. There are boring people who like dogs. There are people you would never think twice about who like dogs. There is not enough information in this type of headline to get anything significant accomplished. What will happen with a headline like this is you will attract no one or you will attract everyone and their brother and possibly their dog. Be more specific.
 
If you really love dogs and want someone who has an equal passion, name the breed of dog that you love the most. However be sure to also make room for yourself, unless you are playing matchmaker for your Puggle alone. Go ahead, put yourself first. Brag a little, toot your own horn, entice, drop hints and be clever and confident. Don’t be afraid to let yourself shine. “Cook, Dance and Go Hiking with a Beautiful Beagle Lover!” Announce to the world that you’ve got something they’ll want. It’s ok to be flattered when the world comes to get it.
 
When writing a headline for your online profile, keep a few, simple guidelines in mind. Spell everything correctly. It may seem simplistic, but many people can’t be bothered with the spell-check or even a quick re-read of what they wrote. A misspelled headline won’t prevent you from finding an interested party for yourself, but what will they be interested in?
 
Educated and intelligent people are usually looking for others who are at least at the same level as they are intellectually. This does not mean that you need to have a college degree, but it does mean that, at the very least, you will need to have your letters in the proper order. Don’t abbreviate. Avoid the use of shortened, chat-room words like, “pics”, and “LOL” when writing your headline. Dust off a thesaurus and look up some nice, meaty words. “Photography Enthusiast With a Sense of Humor,” sounds much more alluring than, “Likes to Take Pics and Candy frm Babies LOL.” It may be the difference between finding someone who will take you to a fancy restaurant and someone who works at one.
 
It isn’t easy for everyone to create a headline for their online profile. Some people can talk all day about anything other than themselves. To jumpstart the thinking process, sit down and make a list about yourself. List your interests and hobbies, your passions and daily activities, your skills and some adjectives that your friends would use to describe you. Then describe yourself with a list of some adjectives. From this list, choose some keywords that best fit you and say what you would want others to look at first, before they get to see anything else. What kind of people do you want to attract?
 
Speculate about what those people might be looking for and use words from your list that will be pertinent to them. Be yourself. Advertising is not about lying. Advertising is about telling the truth in a way that people want to hear it (or read it!).
