Writing Great Local Classifieds For Dating In Your Area
Crafting a great message for online dating is difficult. You have to take into consideration not only you own personality, but also the personalities of the women you are interested in dating. But at least you have a big pool of women to work with. But putting together a classified message, ad, or profile just for women in your local area is much more difficult. Then you only have a limited amount of people to impress, connect with, and date. But it also has it plus sides. Writing local classifieds means that you can date women much more easily, as they are definitely in your area. It also means that you can connect with the girls more, as you are likely to have people, places and more in common. If you are interested in writing local classifieds, either for dating online, or just to put in your local paper, then here are a few tips that I use when writing local classifieds.
A good online profile is very important to some people
Keep It Local
This should be obvious, but is the major mistake that people make when trying to date locally. They end up writing the ads as if they were writing to any girl, anywhere in America. If you are in New York, then you have to personalize the advert for New York. This doesn’t just mean putting it in a New York newspaper, or in the New York section of a dating site, rather you have to talk about the local scene.The best way to do this is to describe your favorite local places, and what you like to do in your neighborhood. This might be the bar you go to with your buddies, or the park you spent last weekend in. By describing places and activities she knows, you can mentally take her there, placing you at the center of the action.
Put Yourself At The Center Of The Action
Following on from that, it is important in any profile, ad, or classified that you write that you build a picture of yourself and a story to go with it. The number one rule to writing something like this is memorable. You have to be memorable to the women that you are trying to attract. Even in local classifieds, women have plenty of other opportunities to take up, so you have to make sure that you stand out from all of the rest, and that you are the one she remembers when it comes time for her to make a decision.
Make sure your online dating leads somewhere
This means ideally putting together a message that shows you in a positive light, without being too pushy, that is also witty and builds that mental picture I talked about. Easy, right? Actually, with just a little thought, it is. Remember. Most guys are just writing the same dull stuff – reeling off where they work, where they live, and where they went to school, along with such riveting findings as ‘like to hang out with friends’, or ‘enjoy the outdoors’. No shit, Sherlock. Find better ways to say these things and you will be light years ahead. Like hanging out with your friends? Then how about:”This weekend I chill out in Bryant Park on Saturday morning, playing a bit of Frisbee with a couple of friends, and a pals dog, Trigger. The dog was way better than the rest of us. Met up with the same band for a gig at CBGBs that evening. Rocked. Greta fun.”A simple passage like that shows exactly what you like to do with your spare time, shows you are friendly, an animal lover, a music lover, and fond of a night out. Sounds much better than just writing that though, right?
Make sure you choose a good dating site for you ad
Choose Your Target
If you are going local, then you need to think carefully about where the ad is going to go. Local classifieds, either online or on paper are a great way to make things hyper local, and choosing that right place will make sure you are only getting responses from the kind of girls you are mostly interested in.But do not neglect casting your net further afield. Try the main dating sites, but only searching for women in your local area. This means that you will get the best of both worlds. A large number of potential women to date, but women that are definitely in your area and that you could date right now. Of course, this is easier if you live somewhere like New York, rather than in the badlands of Montana, but wherever you are, you should always look to keep dating local, so that you can enjoy a real life date, rather than an online romance.Hopefully, these few tips will help you get started dating locally, wherever in the US you are. And wherever you are, you can bet there are women around looking for the right guy, and they will only find that right guy once he post the right ad.
