In as much as Facebook is not a dating site, numerous people still manage to get a date on Facebook and go on to form a long-lasting relationship. Facebook is a huge social site with all manners of people and it is easy to get a great person to date from the website. Granted, people join Facebook for their own reasons which are varied, but if you joined Facebook willing to get a date, here are some few guidelines to ensure you get a date from someone on Facebook.
ONE: HAVE A GREAT PROFILE PICTURE
Your profile picture is the first thing people get to see whenever they visit your profile for the first time. Even if your profile is so private, your picture is always there for the world to see. How about you ensure you have a great profile picture?
In this, get a clear shot. A photo taken in a brought outdoor environment will look great. Take the photo using a good camera. Nowadays most smartphones have great cameras so you can use one to take a nice photo. In that photo, strike a nice pose that will bring out the best of you. Keep your face very visible.
A full photo is also great as it gives someone a clear picture of you at first glance.
TWO: MAKE YOUR PROFILE OUTSTANDING
This can easily be achieved by having a well-designed cover photo. Hire a graphic designer to do one for you if you cannot do it on your own.
Also, your “about me” information should be well arranged and meaningful such that it will leave someone wanting to know you more. Your profile should evoke interest from every person who visits it to want to associate with you or to know you more.
You can also include a nice bio about yourself.
THREE: PUBLISH MEANINGFUL POSTS
People will judge you by what you write and how you write it. To make yourself attractive, publish meaningful posts, informative posts that brings you out as an intelligent person, someone whose company can be enjoyed, someone interesting and someone who can make a good company. If you publish dumb posts, people will view you as a dumb person. If you publish funny humorous posts someone will view you as such.
Online, you are what you write.
FOUR: ENGAGE MORE INBOX
Do you have someone you fancy on Facebook? Engage that person more in your inbox. Keep the conversation flowing. Create interest in that person to know you more.
You can always start a conversation too with someone you fancy. The more you engage someone, the more you create interest in that person to know you more. You can even plan a date right there.
FIVE: REPLY OFTEN WITH MATURITY
In a post, make sure your replies are always mature such that whoever reads them wishes to know you more. Ooze intelligence and people will naturally follow you.
Also, avoid as much as possible to shorten unnecessarily e.g. replacing “you” with “u”. etc.
SIX: STOP NAGGING OR COMPLAINING
If all posts you make on Facebook are complaints or nagging, people will view you as such and start avoiding you. No one loves complainers. We know life is difficult and there is no point of making other people’s lives even more difficult with your own constant complaints about everything. I know so many use Facebook to vent, it is all right to vent once in a while but not always.
SEVEN: EXUDE CONFIDENCE
All your mannerism should show you as a confident person. In your photos for example, strike straight poses. Look straight into the camera. When chatting with someone, hold a strong opinion not necessarily in offensive or defensive manner.
People are naturally attracted to confident people.
EIGHT: SHOW THE BRIGHTER SIDE OF YOU
The world is a gloomy place and no one wants to have to spend time with a gloomy person. Show your brighter side. Take photos of you while basking in the beach reading a novel, or engaging in a hobby that will obviously attract someone to you to want to spend time with you.
Show to the world that someone can enjoy being with you or can have a real nice time with you!
NINE: JOIN SOCIAL GROUPS
There are groups on Facebook that are highly interactive and people join the groups to socialize. Join them and also be an active participant. Sooner, people will begin to notice you, begin to like you and even will feel that they miss you the day you do not come online or do not log in to the group.
Social groups are great for getting someone to date!
TEN: BE ACTIVE
Do not let a day end without you posting something. Do not let a day end without you participating in that one social group where you are a member. Let people feel your presence. Let your crushes or secret admirers know you are there. The more active you are, the more likeable you become to people and the higher the chances of getting a date on Facebook.
I know there are so many other ways of getting a date on Facebook. After all, in all online social platforms where people get to socialize, there will always be a chance that you will get a date online if indeed you want to get a date.
Happy dating on Facebook.
