For most people who would like to be happy with their love life,
dating is probably the single most important activity that one
should engage in before they proceed on the more serious part
If successfully pursued, dating can
provide greater gratifications to those who wished they were
happier and more contented with their lives. If ever they
failed, it is probably the most horrifying event of their lives.
Having a bad hair day, a missed flight, or a burned fried egg,
can be endured by most people, but to have a bad date is like
living in agony. When love becomes decapitated, life becomes a
survival of the losers.
No wonder why everybody is trying
hard to come up with something unique and quirkily entertaining
when it comes to personal ads. These ads are not the typical ads
that people see on televisions or on print medium. Personal ads
are more like profiles, though; the main purpose is also to
advertise oneís self.
People who vie for personal ads are
those who hope that somebody love begets love and that somebody
will soon find them amidst the many singles who try their luck
in cupidís daunting game.
So, here goes an individual,
with all fingers crossed as she post her personal ad online,
trying to find the love of her life and wishing that someday,
somebody would soon reply.
Five days, two weeks, 4
months, and still, she does not get a response. The next things
she knew, she is already retracting her personal ad, sulk in the
corner, and cry. She wails as if the whole world had crumpled on
her. She starts to have low self-esteem and begins to blame
herself for not being desirable enough to get responses.
What she failed to do is to analyze what went wrong. She failed
to look back on her personal ad, identify each part, and
evaluate what should have been done right in order to get the
response she desperately needed.
The problem with most
people, who fails to get responses on their online dating ads,
is that they easily get depressed, and once they are depressed,
they start to blame their selves and curse whoever managed to
come up with an idea such as online dating and personal ads.
This should not be the case because not identifying the real
problem or the ultimate cause of such negative results would
only mean that the person is not really interested. Or maybe, he
or she is interested but is too desperate to have positive
results but do not have any idea how to make it happen.
Hence, people should know what to do with their personal ads in
order to gain the gratifications they wanted. So, for people who
want to have knockout personal ads that are proven to have
positive results, here is a list of some tips on making personal
1. People should learn how to describe their selves
truthfully and exactly.
When making personal ads, people
should take note of the things they should include on their ad.
Like copy ads, each details should be made out of the creative
juices of the person and constructed into such marvelous
description of oneís self. It should include more solid
information that will provide the other person, who will view
the ad, with a more visualized concept of the person in the ad.
The explanation behind this logical reason is relatively simple.
Who would dare try to obtain an item if the buyer does not know
what he is paying for? Hence, it goes to show that before
somebody replies on oneís personal ad, the other person should
feel the enticement in order to compel him or her to respond.
2. It would be better to tell more stories and not reports.
People should always remember that they are writing their
personal ads. This means that they should meticulously find some
ways on how to make their selves saleable to the viewing public.
It would be better to write some stories about their life and
experiences. However, one should take note not to overdo this
one as it will appear and sound like a mushy write-up ready to
be devoured by some hungry wastebasket.
It is best to
write something people can relate to. Persons who would like to
have positive results on their ads should know where to draw the
line between telling something about their selves and bragging
about their selves. They are entirely two different things that
derive two different reactions.
Best of all, honesty
should always be incorporated in whatever write-up they do.
3. People should never dwell on negative aspects like problems
or failed relationships.
Posting personal ads is not
about obtaining some help from other people. So, thereís no room
for advices or petty counseling sessions. Itís best to create a
personal ad that would draw in positive responses by creating
positive profiles first.
As they say, once somebody
started something negatively, chances are, the negative vibe
will stick up to the end.
The key point in writing
personal ads is to come up with something that will appear very
interesting and attention grabbing.
So, if a person gets
no response on his or her ad, there is no use to cry over
spilled milk. What matters most is how to start all over again
and try again the quest with a nice, enticing personal ad.
