5 free ways to improve your dating experience

Online dating is a fantastic way to get to know people you might not have otherwise had the opportunity to meet. Finding someone you click with is easier than you think if you follow these tips:



1. Clear your diary

Our LoveGeist survey revealed that nearly half of singles (47%) are willing to free up their time in favour of dating.
With work, hobbies and socialising with friends all vying for your time it can often seem an impossible task to find time for dating – but if you move your post-work gym session to the morning, or suggest meeting your matches for a rendezvous during your lunch hour, you'll soon find you have plenty of free time for dating.





2. Tailor your profile

81% of singles said that they're looking for someone who shares the same values, while 84% are looking to date someone who has a similar sense of humour.
One easy way to improve your dating experience is to fill out every last bit of your profile and tailor it so that it specifies who you are and the type of person you're looking to meet. The more information you include on your profile, the more likely it is that the right people will find you.





3. Keep your profile fresh

Another free way to improve your dating experience is to keep your profile fresh – by which we mean keep it updated as and when your life, experience, and circumstances change.
A bit of TLC here and there will give your potential matches an insight into the real you.





4. Make small changes to your lifestyle

45% of singles said they would change something for the good of a relationship, with 35% saying they'd change their drinking habits, so making just a few small lifestyle changes is a great way to improve your dating experience.





5. Think outside the box

55% of singles said they'd prefer to spend Valentine's Day doing something a little more adventurous than the traditional dinner and drinks date.
Dating doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg, in fact, some of the best date ideas are free. We've got lots of great suggestions, just click here.
