Dating sites these days are a dime a dozen and there are more and more being created every day. We live in a fast paced world where there is little time to date traditionally and online dating helps to bridge the gap between our busy day to day and our dating life. Though online dating is growing in popularity, the most popular sites, or at least those that are highly publicized, tend to charge monthly subscription fees, communication fees, and any number of other fees just to access the matches that you have made. Fees are how most dating sites make their money and how they keep users tied to the never ending cycle of paying to talk with the people that you have worked so hard to match with. There are some sites out there however, like heythere.io, that work to create meaningful and lasting connections without charging you a single penny to do so. This answers the questions, can a totally free dating website really work for me? Yes. You must have half the features, your site must be difficult to use, you must not have many users, these are all concerns. They are however false. We work to create a site that is easy to use and that has many of the same great features that the other dating sites offer. We work to provide a platform where you can truly meet someone that might be your forever match without having to worry about how much money it is going to cost to keep that line of communication open each month. A free dating site is a novel concept for some but for others it is where they met the love of their life. We at heythere.io strive to create a platform that is all encompassing and that is inviting to all users without charging our customers. Online dating should not be reserved for those that have the money to pay the monthly fees and should not be limited to those users that are ok with paying. We want to offer our users a chance to find true love without their having to spend an arm and a leg to do so. To answer the question, can a free dating site work for me? Yes it can, you just have to be open and willing to give it a try and see what we have to offer. Your true love might just be waiting on the other side of the screen.

When it comes to initially attracting women, it’s really not rocket science. Of course, handling relationships is a whole other ballpark that requires patience and learning, but becoming “attractive” to women is rather straightforward. You just have to have the effort, and be willing to invest in yourself. This simple relationship advice will get you far. 1. Go to the gym Whether you like it or not, women like men who stay in shape. You don’t have to bench 300 pounds and look like a top-heavy gorilla to get a girl to compliment your physique, but you need to invest in your health to be more attractive to women. A little bit of muscle tone can go a long way. 2. Don’t tell them they’re pretty…ask them who their favorite author is It doesn’t matter if you’re scrolling through Tinder or buying a girl a drink at the bar. If you’re really looking to get a girl interested, don’t lead with something cheesy like “You’re so beautiful” or “Wow, you are stunning.” Girls know they look good, and they know you know they look good. Instead of stating the obvious, lead with a thought-provoking question that allows them to talk about themselves. 3. Groom yourself & your home Along with going to the gym, grooming yourself on a regular basis is important. Get a haircut, shave, moisturize your dry skin, clean your nails, and wash your sweaty gym clothes. Nothing grosses women out more than men’s dirty habits, so remember to put the toilet seat down, wipe your counters, and spray some Febreeze in the air. 4. Stop Posting Weird Things on Social Media Social media is your chance to highlight the best parts about yourself. And you can bet that any girl you met on a dating site who is interested in you is going to cyberstalk your profiles on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and whatever else she can get her hands on. Which means, you need to keep your social media profiles relevant, and not post anything incredibly embarrassing. For girls you’re already friends with or who follow you, it’s a good idea not to post rants or share questionable articles. 5. Get a Real Job Nothing is more attractive than a guy with a good heart…and a job. Women feel more secure when you are working, and not only just working, but passionate about what you do. You don’t have to make tons of money, but you have to find a job that boosts your confidence, gives you some stability in life, and allows you to save enough to take a girl out on a date!

break the ice on a first date

First dates are intimidating, we know. It’s hard to prepare for something that could potentially go 100 different ways depending your date’s personality, and depending on the kind of date activity you choose. Ether way, it’s important to remember that you’re simply getting to knew another human being; you’re not committing to anything, and you’re under no obligation to like this person (although it would be nice if you did find love). Here are the 5 best questions to ask on a first date to help you break the ice, and create a relaxing vibe where you can easily connect. 1. So, what annoys you most about the whole dating process? This question might catch your date off guard, but it’s a good way to let them know that you have some humor in you, and that you can both find some common ground on your previous not-so-great date experiences. 2. Whose the biggest influence in your life? You can learn a lot about someone based on who his or her role mode is This question could lead to life stories and life lessons that let you see a more personal, even vulnerable side of your date. Pus, people love to talk about themselves and what inspires them, so this question could spark plenty of conversation! 3. What’s your ideal way to spend a Saturday night? This question is for you just as much as it’s for your date. If your date likes to sit inside and play video games for 4 hours straight on a weeknight, but you’re the kind of person who would camp overnight on top of a mountain after spending the day hiking the Appalachian Trail, then you might have some conflict. 4. If you could drop everything right now without any consequences, what would you do? This is a fun hypothetical question, because it gets you and your date to think outside the box You can talk about your hopes and dreams and be creative with imagining where life might take you. 5. Have you figured out what your calling in life is? If not, what gives you energy and purpose at the moment? This is a heavy question, but an important one. Everyone is searching for his or her purpose in life. While many people find their “thing”, others struggle to define their identity and spend years trying different career paths living in different cities, and changing their friend groups to see where they fit in. I t’s different for everyone, and it’s a great philosophical topic you could potentially talk about for your entire date. In conclusion, the aforementioned set of questions range from light topics to heavier more in depth topics. It’s important to ask these questions in proper context. For example, if you’re on a fun bowling night date, you may not want to bring heavy philosophical topics into the light fun environment. It could be a real downer to the over vibe of the night. The best thing you can do for […]

Are They Really Relationship Material?

Posted by & filed under Relationship Advice.

Could this be forever

Although dating can be an enjoyable activity in its own right, offering opportunities to experience nice restaurants, concerts, and cultural venues, the end goal for most people involves finding the right one to settle down with. Those seeking relationship advice often ask how they can know if a person they’re seeing is actual relationship material or if they’re only in it for a temporary good time or otherwise not a good choice for a long term relationship. The following tips and guides below will offer you some insight as to whether they’re in it for the long haul or not. How Do They Treat Service People When You’re Out On A Date? If you’re out on a date with someone who treats restaurant workers or others in the service industry badly, listen up — that’s exactly how that person is going to treat you, your friends and family, and any children you may have after the newness of your relationship has worn off. Those who are rude to service industry people are usually using the behavior as a cover for deep insecurities, so take this as a serious warning sign that the person isn’t good relationship material. Furthermore, these type of people aren’t even good casual dating material unless you enjoy being constantly embarrassed due to your date’s boorish behavior. Are They Always Broke and Seem to Have No Serious Ambition? This type of person isn’t going to change, and unless you want to hook your fortunes to that of a deadbeat, steer clear if you run across this type on one of the free dating sites. Naturally, you don’t want to be the sort of person who considers money the most attractive quality that a potential mate to have, but this is about being a responsible adult with life goals and not just money. Also, a consistent lack of money could signal serious issues such as an addiction to drugs, alcohol, or gambling. Do They Display Signs of Obvious Anger Issues? If the person you’re dating seems angry a lot, that’s a sign that you should rethink pursuing a serious future with this person. Living with someone who is constantly angry can erode your sense of serenity and well-being, and in some cases, the anger may signal that the person may become physically violent at some point in the future. You probably don’t want a mate who is completely passive at all times and never feels passionately about anything, but don’t mistake inappropriate, constant anger for passion. Other signs that someone isn’t relationship material include never having enough time for you, making subtle digs at you and trying to pass them off as jokes, and a refusal to respect your opinions and needs. Also, the best piece of relationship advice ever given is that if someone says they don’t want a relationship, listen to them –they’re telling the truth, so don’t try to change them.

Beginners Guide to Online Dating for Seniors

Posted by & filed under Online Dating.

Over the course of the past twenty or so years that online dating has been a part of our social landscape, it’s lost its initial stigma and become the norm for most people. Everybody’s doing online dating these days, and senior citizens are no exception. If you’re a senior who’s ready to begin your exploration with the wonderful world of online date, you’re probably seeking tips and tricks to optimize the experience. Following are four success strategies designed for those about to take the plunge into online senior dating. The Fundamentals of Dating Haven’t Changed Online dating options just provide a modern version of more traditional meeting places, but basic dating dynamics remain the same. People put their best foot forward, and, at the very least, hope to make new friends. Old-fashioned values such as good manners are still very much in play. If you run across someone in the senior dating world who fails to exhibit good manners, it’s okay to pass them by and keep looking.   It’s Okay to Take Your Time Internet dating provides you with the unique opportunity to have extensive conversations with other parties before meeting in the flesh. It’s perfectly all right to take your time in getting to know someone, so don’t let anyone pressure you into meeting in person before you are ready. Keep in mind that anyone worth getting to know will respect your wishes instead of trying to make you feel bad for not wanting to meet them right away.   Keep the First Date Simple No matter how long you’ve been talking with the other party online or on the telephone, resist the urge to plan an elaborate first date. A nice coffee shop date during the middle of the day is a perfect first date. If things click, you can plan on a more involved second date where you can get to know each other better. Coffee dates are ideal because they allow both people an easy out if the situation goes south. First dates should always occur in well-trafficked locations.   Customize Your Online Dating Profile When it comes time to craft an online dating profile, many people make it as generic as possible in order to attract the greatest amount of people. However, this strategy is counterproductive, because you’ll end up being contacted by many people you have nothing in common with and who aren’t good fits. Don’t be shy about customizing your senior dating profile to reflect who you really are. It may result in less interest from other members of the site, but you’ll be attracting those who like the type of person that you really are. In conclusion, the most important thing is to relax and have a good time meeting new people.

If you're like most people, it's only natural for you to want to put your best face forward in your online dating profile.

If you’re like most people, it’s only natural for you to want to put your best face forward in your online dating profile. After all, your photograph serves as a visual introduction, and you want to make the best possible impression. However, choosing the right photograph isn’t always as easy as it seems, so follow great suggestions listed below for optimal results.   Be Realistic Many people make the mistake of using photographs that are years old on their dating profiles. Although it’s definitely tempting to use a photo of your younger self, it may be construed as deceptive by those who you choose to meet in person, particularly if the picture is older than a year or two. Keep in mind that one of the goals of online dating is to meet people in person, so use a flattering photo that represents the person you are now.   Strive for a Natural Look Whether you opt to have your profile photo taken by a professional or put the project in the hands of a talented friend or relative, it’s best to strive for a relaxed, natural look rather than a contrived pose. However, don’t take the natural look too far — one of the last things you want on your dating profile is a blurry selfie taken in the bathroom with your smartphone.   Use a Picture With Personality Choose a picture that lets your personality shine through rather than one featuring a wooden expression. If you share your life and home with a furry friend, consider including your companion in your photo, or if you play a sport, a smiling head-shot taken while enjoying your favorite pastime is sure to sparkle with personality. Pictures taken in the park on a sunny summer morning or looking up from reading an engrossing book are also good.   Keep it Simple Even if your favorite photo of yourself is one that was taken while surrounded by a group of friends or family, don’t use that in your online dating profile — the picture shouldn’t include any other humans but yourself. You should also refrain from using a photo taken in an obvious party setting, and make certain that you’re appropriately dressed. That shirtless gym photo might show your muscles to their best advantage, but it’s probably best to choose another photo for your profile. Also, potential partners are going to want to see your eyes, so never post a photo where you’re wearing sunglasses. You should also be looking directly at the camera with an open and approachable expression on your face. If you are in doubt about which photo to use, enlist the assistance of a friend with successful online dating experience to help you craft an excellent first impression for your dating profile.

How to meet girls on Facebook

There’s no doubt about it — Facebook is the ultimate social media site. With 1.23 billion users actively using the site on a monthly basis, it’s the perfect setting for meeting girls and online dating. Of course, since this is Facebook — and not a face-to-face meeting — your strategy needs to be different than what you might typically use. The following offers you a slew of relationship advice that sets you up to meet girls on Facebook. Find Girls That Might Be Good Matches Facebook is a fertile mining ground for finding friends of all stripes who share a common interest. A quick search of Facebook groups will bring up numerous choices based on a mutual love or admiration of something in particular. So, if you’re a die-hard gamer, for example, browse through some of the more interesting Facebook groups to see if there are any girls that interest you. Or you can take a different approach and choose something that you’ve always wanted to learn more about and join a group based on it. Add Girls That Catch Your Eye Every time you see a cute girl online, add her as a friend. In order to head off the nearly inevitable questions about who you are, send an intriguing or charming message with your friend request. If you can’t think of anything personal to say about her off the top of your head, click through her profile a bit and see what kind of pictures she has up. Does she have a selfie with her pooch? Tell her about the dog you grew up with that is the same breed. Did she post a picture of she and her besties hiking? Send a comment about your favorite hiking trails in the area. Dive Deeper Into Her Page Once you send off your friend request, it’s time to really gain an understanding of her. Spend some time browsing through her about page and make a note of her interests. Click through her timeline and her photos so you can get a good grasp of who she is and what makes her happy. Doing this will provide you with ways to connect with her on a personal level. Interact With Her Regularly Conventional relationship advice involves getting to know her better. Spend some time interacting with her based on the status updates, photos and videos she posts. Make positive, upbeat and personal messages but make sure you don’t try too hard. If she comments back to you on something you’ve said, make sure that you follow through with another sincere comment to keep the flow of communication open. Message Her Directly After you’ve spent some time interacting with her on a regular basis — the actual time varies, of course, but err on the side of waiting rather than rushing it — message her about some common interest you two share or ask her opinion on something. This makes the message open ended enough so she is more likely to respond. Make a Connection With Her Use your messages to really […]
