Studies reveal that single people are more likely to meet a romantic partner online than at bars, social events or church.
Jennifer Oikle, a Denver relationship psychologist and dating coach, says what’s written in a profile may reveal more about who the individuals are and who they tend to attract than they realize.
“I honestly think people don’t understand the impact of what they are saying,” says Oikle, founder of meetyourmateonline.com, a website offering singles insight and resources for finding love on the Internet.
But how did they get there, with only some photos, a few paragraphs describing themselves and what they’re looking for in a potential mate?
Dating experts say dissecting profiles and analyzing commonly used phrases can pinpoint players and cull the keepers, increasing the chances of becoming one of the estimated one in five couples that meet online.
He had been a telecommunications major with a minor in journalism, but after this experience he believed he had been called to pastor. Initially, the 22 people who met in the basement of Haggard's house formed his church, which then grew to rented spaces in strip malls.
If daters aren’t getting the kind of response they want, there may be “barriers to entry” hidden in their profile, says Larry Wilson, president of oppositesconnect.com, which launched last month.
But let’s cut the nonsense: nobody really cares about the best city to start a hot sauce company. What we do care about, however, is where we can get the most action with the least amount of effort.
After the scandal was publicized, Haggard entered three weeks of intensive counseling, overseen by four ministers. As a co-editor of his high-school newspaper in 1974, Haggard published remarkably frank articles which described services that were available to prevent and deal with increasingly prevalent pregnancies and STDs. ." Within forty-eight hours, Haggard felt that he received four unsolicited confirmations: from a Sunday school teacher, a pastor, a friend, and from his father.
In February 2007, one of those ministers, Tim Ralph, said that Haggard "is completely heterosexual." In 1972, at age sixteen, Haggard became a born-again Christian after hearing a sermon from evangelist Bill Bright in Dallas, Texas and becoming acquainted with the Christian apologetics of C. These articles scandalized his small town and embroiled him in a free-press lawsuit. But before I mentioned this to anyone, especially to my parents, I asked the Lord to assure me by using others to confirm His calling on my life. According to Haggard, in November 1984, when he was an associate pastor of Bethany World Prayer Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, his confidant and mentor Danny Ost, a missionary to Mexico City, had a vision of Haggard founding his church in Colorado Springs.
