Welcome to Macs Dating Site, a dating blog that serves us a “how to” manual for online singles. I’m glad you were able to stop by. My name is Jim McMenamin, but my friends just call me Mac.
I put this dating blog together in the hopes that I can help others out who are getting started in online dating.
I remember when I first started online dating a few years ago how overwhelmed I was with the whole experience. I wasn’t really sure where to go and what exactly to do once I got there. It would have been great if someone had laid out a step-by-step dating blog that contained a game plan for me to follow.
The online dating process sounds simple, doesn’t it? Just go online, google “free dating site”, register, and then choose from the tons of available singles that are just dying to go out on a date. Sounds pretty easy, right?
If you’ve recently tried a free service (either a chat room or free dating site), you know it’s not that simple.
The quality of traffic on most free sites is terrible. It’s a rare event to find an actual human on one of them. It seems that every time I’m contacted it seems like the profile I’m dealing with is an automated robot that is hoping to take me to some sort of site that requires me to pull out my credit card. Talk about annoying.
After wasting a fair amount of my time on free services, I decided to bite the bullet and paid to join a reputable online dating service. I’m a cheapskate by nature, but let me tell you, what a great decision it was for me to take that route.
In keeping with the goal of this dating blog, I’ve pieced together some information to help you out. It draws on my experiences and frustrations of learning the best processes to follow and I’m hoping you’ll be able to learn from my mistakes.
The first valuable part of this dating blog is my Internet Dating Tips, which walks you through all the prep work you need to follow to develop the perfect online profile. No detail of the process is overlooked and this in depth process will set you ahead of the other singles you’ll be competing with to find your perfect match.
Once you’ve finished developing your profile you’ll be ready to choose the best site to find other singles. I’ve rated most of the top online dating services in my online dating guide to see which ones give you the best bang for you buck and I’ve narrowed the field down to the top five services out there. They are all paid services, but as you’ll find out by exploring this dating blog a little deeper that I don’t have any affinity for free services. They just don’t seem to provide quality matches.
I hope you find this dating blog helpful as you look for that perfect soul mate. This can be a stressful process if you aren’t prepared but if you follow the steps I’ve laid out for you it should turn into a pleasant experience. Should you have any questions, please feel free to shoot me an email. I can’t promise you an immediate response, but I do check my email regularly, so I should be back to you within 24-48 hours. ~Mac
