THE PROCESS: HOW TO GO FROM A FIRST CONTACT WITH A WOMAN TO AN IN-PERSON FIRST MEETING

Beware of the Highlighted Profile!

I was recently perusing JDate (for ‘educational purposes only’) and noticed that they have a new level of membership called a “Premium Plan.” For an extra 3-5 dollars a month (as if they are not expensive enough), you can have your profile appear highlighted when it shows up in someone’s search. I know Match.com offers a similar option, and my guess is that many other sites have something like this as well.

DON”T DO IT!

It screams WUSS.

Whew. That was easy ;)

Now for the rest of the story…

Woman that choose this option tend to be… well, let’s say, ‘more eager to meet a guy’ than someone with a normal membership.

You interpret that any way you’d like.

Good luck!

So not true. I'm no more eager than anyone else on Match, I'm just willing to shell out the couple of extra bucks to be on top of the list. I'm so much better than some of these other girls that are coming up before me- why not draw the extra attention?

same as last comment said...

Oh great- comment approval. Why not just allow posting. This is stupid. Couldn't you just erase ignorant comments or spam? why go through comment approval?

Why did you post that last message? If you have to approve comments, why post a morons rant?

Why you have to pay for that? If you have a good picture, an awesome profile. Even if you don't have to pay, someone else will look and touch with you...

Disagree. When I signed up for Match, they packaged the highlighted profile with a couple of other nice add-ons for an extra $1/month. Really, I don't care one way or another about the highlighted profile, and I don't weigh it any more or less when I see one because I know they are signing up for the package, same as me. Actually, it's kind of meaningless.

Actually i think it's a great feature. I don't have it, but I can tell that the people that have it are paid members, which means they can read the messages i send them.
