Dating Advice: What To Do When Online Dating Isn’t Working For You

Cupid's Pulse Article: Dating Advice: What To Do When Online Dating Isn’t Working For You

By Lisa Smith

Although online dating is one of the most common ways to meet someone these days, it doesn’t work for everyone. There are several research-based reasons why online dating isn’t actually the best way to meet someone.

For some people, online dating is frustrating because it’s so easy for prospects to present themselves in a way that is much different from who they are in real life. It’s incredibly easy to portray yourself as a great catch and hide your bad qualities in the online world.

Others claim the bigger problem is simply that online dating presents them with too much choice which is too overwhelming.

Overall, many of today’s singles avoid dating apps and websites because they are a time suck. It requires so much time to sift through the bad matches and find someone worth talking to. A great way to waste your time is by chatting with someone online for ages, only to meet them in person and realize there is no connection.

Here is some dating advice if you’re single, and online dating just isn’t working for you.

Movie Review: Love, Simon

Posted In: Love, Movies
Cupid's Pulse Article: Movie Review: Love, Simon
Catch Love, Simon in theaters on March 16th!

By Karley Kemble

Love, Simon is a charmingly modern coming-of-age movie that tells a story about a teen struggling with his sexuality. Simon Spier (played by Nick Robinson) claims to live a “normal” life, and has a strong relationship with his family, great friends, and thriving academic life. But, the big secret he has yet to tell anyone is that he’s gay. Simon so desperately desires to experience romantic love, but finds that his inability to come out of the closet is holding him back. Once he begins to correspond with an anonymous peer who is presumably gay through email, Simon begins to find full, true happiness: maybe even love! Will Simon embrace his identity? Is he actually finding comfort in a catfish, or is this person the real deal?

This movie is a very heartwarming, and puts a modern twist on classic coming-of-age films. It also teaches us about relationships. Check out our movie review:

Dating sites have become very popular among people today. In fact, online dating is now the second most common way for American couples to meet! From the onset, there were only a few dating sites available for users, but now there are very popular and specific dating sites that target the needs and interests of individuals. One such example is interracial dating in the United States, which has flourished to the point where there are now so many interracial sites available. However, there are still many skeptics when it comes to opinions about finding love through chatting online. The ongoing debate over whether you can legitimately fall in love online is a ongoing one, and there are many opinions on the matter. Some will argue that you never really fall in love until you have seen someone or have engaged in physical contact. Others will say that falling in love is possible even if you have not met that person in the real life.

Our definition of love and relationships has changed, and it is entirely possible to fall in love online. Check out our relationship advice:

So often online dating is looked upon as a medium that people turn to after running out of options in “real life.” As an online dating expert, I may be a bit on the biased side, but I personally think this is a mindset that officially needs to be put to death. Not only is online dating an incredible opportunity to meet other singles, but dare I say, it’s even better than attempting to meet people out and about. Here are five reasons why:

Online dating is all the rage, right? I mean, all of your friends say so. But after your last date with Logan, who turned out to be less hard-working intellectual and more mid-30-year-old living with Mom, and the one before, Scott, the self-proclaimed genius surfer from Arkansas, you’re feeling a bit wary. Maybe the problem, aside from your questionable taste, is closer to home than you anticipated—maybe the problem is your profile. Your profile deigns who decides to swipe right on you, and you have a lot of power here. Follow our tips to spring-clean your profile, and wash away the negative energy and scarring first dates.

By Michelle Foti

Imagine standing in a crowded bar with the music blasting, the lights down low, someone’s drink spilled on you, and a bar fight breaking out five feet away. Definitely not the way to meet the man of your dreams, is it? Your quest to find your knight in shining armor is not looking too good, so why not just stay home curled up on the couch with your computer on your lap and search for a guy online?

If your fear of being catfished (remember Manti Te’o?) is stopping you, just wait until it’s last call and the lights come on. Did he really have a biker ponytail and face tattoo the whole time? Online dating can save you so much time and money while you search around for someone you really like.  In addition, you will be able to research potential matches, have time to plan your responses, and use actual science to help you find matches.

A great way to start online dating is by trying out a few sites and seeing which you like best. Luckily, reputable sites like these that also offer free trials can be easily found at DatingAdvice.com. By signing up for these free trials, you can usually peruse others images, profile text, and sometimes even contact them.  Either way, you will be able to choose a site that you are most comfortable with and that matches your dating goals.

When you hear someone say that they met their significant other online, you wouldn’t think twice, as online dating is one of the leading ways singles meet potential suitors. Although it’s commonplace to meet people online, there are always risks associated with dating people you don’t know. You might end up connecting with someone who has a fake profile and is more interested in scamming you rather than determining if you’re Mrs. Right. But how do you know if you’re dealing with someone who has a fake profile? And what are the red flags you should look for? Fortunately, there’s relationship advice to navigate the online dating scene and figure out if you’re dealing with prince charming or prince alarming.

Coffee Meets Bagel Dating App Co-Founder Talks About Being on ‘Shark Tank’

Cupid's Pulse Article: Coffee Meets Bagel Dating App Co-Founder Talks About Being on ‘Shark Tank’
The co-founders of dating and relationship app Coffee Meets Bagel talk exclusively about their appearance on the premiere of ABC's 'Shark Tank.' Photo courtesy of ABC.

Interview by Lori Bizzoco. Written by Lori Bizzoco and Emma Wells.

Looking for a unique way to find love on your mobile device? Well, one of the biggest names in dating and relationship apps is about to get some air time on television tonight (and no, it’s not Tinder). Coffee Meets Bagel co-founders and sisters, Dawoon, Arum, and Soo Kang, are heading to ABC’s Shark Tank for the season premiere to seek funding for an Android app expansion that launched two days ago to compliment their growing business.

What is the Coffee Meets Bagel Dating and Relationship App?

Coffee Meets Bagel was started by the Kang sisters in April 2012 in New York. As smart, attractive, young, and busy professionals who weren’t having much success with dating, they wanted to make finding love easier and more fun for singles by creating a unique dating and relationship app. According to their website, Coffee Meets Bagel operates under three guiding principles: Firstly, your dating life should be as private as you want it to be; secondly, meeting people through friends is safe and easy; and finally, it shouldn’t be hard, uncomfortable, or tricky to meet good potential partners.

Related Link: New Dating Apps to Manage Your Love Life

Coffee Meets Bagel sets itself apart from other dating and relationship apps by providing users with only one potential match – or “Bagel” – per day at noon. Users then have 24 hours to either “like” or “pass” on their match. If you select “like” and your match does too, you get connected via SMS messages and can schedule a date. Additionally, Coffee Meets Bagel only provides matches it finds through your Facebook friend network. Perhaps this is why it has been so successful: They claim one million matches/introductions since they launched!

Their Experiences on Shark Tank

Executive Editor Lori Bizzoco had the chance to meet Dawoon a few years back at the New York launch party, and she spoke to her again this week. She wouldn’t disclose too much information about what happens on Shark Tank or about the company’s user numbers. “We don’t give out our numbers,” she reveals. Well, that’s going to make for an interesting segment tonight considering Shark Tank investors are ALL about the numbers! When asked if we’ll find out more about this on the show, she replies, “You’ll have to wait and see!”  Interestingly, Mashable reported that the sisters were attacked by the sharks for being coy about their users.

It’s not that the sisters don’t know the premise of the show. In fact, Dawoon said that they are big fans. However, she does tell us that they didn’t seek out the opportunity to be on Shark Tank, explaining that ABC actually contacted them directly. “I never considered  going on Shark Tank before because we are a bigger company than the entrepreneurs they typically have on the show,” referring to her company’s 11 person team and their recent funding. The company received their first round of funding in September 2012 for 600,000 dollars from LightBank Venture Capital and the co-founder of Match.com, Peng T. Ong. They received a second round of venture capital – 2.8 million dollars – from an unknown source in May 2014.  Speculation is that this came from one of the sharks, but Dawoon confirms it did not. “The investment happened before the announcement was made and before Shark Tank,” she says.

But when the opportunity presented itself, they knew it was too good to turn down. “We thought it would be amazing to have one of the sharks involved because they are so smart and experienced,” she shares. “So we decided to go for it.  It was very nerve-racking, but it was a lot of fun!”

When asked if there was a particular shark they would want as an investor, she points to Mark Cuban. “If I were to pick one shark [to work with], I would probably love to have him involved because he’s just so tech savvy. All the sharks are very straightforward and sharp, but I find Mark to be particularly so. I can totally see him adding a lot of value to Coffee Meets Bagel. We are very excited at the prospect of getting any of the sharks involved though.”

Like any good reality television show, there is always the  possibility of some drama.  We’ll just have to wait and see if Coffee Meets Bagel will be a match on the premiere episode of Shark Tank!

Swimming through the 21st century dating pool can be a complicated endeavor. Not only are you searching for a soul-mate but you have to doggy paddle your way through cringe-worthy dating apps, dating websites with a price tag or crowded bars with minimal lighting. It’s no easy feat and according to psychologytoday.com, “It’s been found that 81 percent of people lie on their online dating profiles, most often about their age, height, weight, and earning power—and that doesn’t include photo shopping.” So before you go out there with all the liars and the dirty, dirty cheats of the world, you need to make sure your dating radar is as active as your tinder inbox.
