Online dating tips for getting the best results

I’ve found that online dating is very much a numbers game. To be successful, you need to put yourself out there on the most popular dating sites, and have a lot of patience. Some people get results fairly quickly but others must work hard to find the person that’s right for them.

If you like being in the driver’s seat, the best strategy is to join one free dating site like Plentyoffish or Okcupid, as well as a popular paid dating site like The results from free dating sites are not as good as the potential matches you’ll get on However, I recommend joining them simply because once you have a profile, it’s easy enough to replicate them on free dating sites. This gives you more exposure and increases the chances of meeting that special someone.

If you find yourself ready for a serious commitment, then the two sites you should be joining are Eharmony and Along with those two, you should also join a couple free dating sites. The reason I recommend Eharmony and for people who want a serious relationship is that these two sites are specifically geared to meet the needs of people who are ready to settle down. You’ll definitely notice a difference between the people on sites like vs. the people on Eharmony. Note that Eharmony and only match you with a limited number of people; this means such sites will require you to be a bit more patient than other sites. If you’re interested in getting an Eharmony free trial, be sure to visit

Regardless of which site you join, you want to spend a lot of time working on your profile. Don’t be afraid to get feedback from others on your profile, and be sure that you reread the profile once a month and make revisions or improvements. Also, make sure you post multiple photos. The best photos will be ones that can be conversation starters. A photo of you playing a sport, being with animals, etc. are great for the purpose of starting a conversation with prospective matches. The main profile photo, however, should be a head shot. If you can afford it, it pays to get a professional photo taken. Many studies have shown that professional photos tend to draw more interest.


Using coupons for Halo Cigs

When it comes to electronic cigarettes, there are two ways you can go. You could purchase unbranded, generic products and save money as a result. Unbranded products are typically sold based on battery size and features. For example, for small batteries, you’d want to pay attention to weather the battery has KR808 or 501 wiring. Besides that, you’d just look at the price and buy a product that seems to be a good deal.

The second approach to buying electronic cigarettes is to stick to well-known, trusted brands. If you follow this particular shopping strategy, you would want to read reviews of electronic cigarettes online. Some famous brands you should do research on are Blu Cigs, Halo Cigs, V2 Cigs, and other similar brands.

On average, purchasing from trusted brands means you’ll typically have to pay about 20% more for the products you buy. A small e-cig battery, for example, may cost you $12 or $13 as opposed to $10 for a generic brand. The upside is that you’ll usually be getting a better quality product. Also, if you use online coupons, such as this Halo Cigs coupon that you can get if you head over to, you can get a bit of a discount on your purchase as well.

My favorite brand at the moment is Halo Cigs, and I particularly like their G6 batteries and cartomizers. After having tried a number of other brands, I find the G6 to be a longer lasting battery that requires less of a pull to activate (for the automatic batteries) compared to other brands I’ve tried.

One final point: In our last blog post, we talked about ways to save money. It turns out E-cigs are way cheaper than regular “analog” cigarettes. So if you happen to be a regular smoker, making the switch over to E-cigs is a smart move both for your physical and financial health. Depending on how many cigarettes you smoke a day, you could easily save $1000 or more every year by using e-cigs instead of normal cigarettes.
