Just about everyone has a friend or family member that has tried or is currently using online dating. When it comes to a Japanese American single, there are many ways to find a match to another Japanese American, if that is what is desired. Most online dating sites offer an element in which a member may search for another using the criteria of ethnic background. Other sites will cater specifically to certain ethnic backgrounds, thou ensuring perfect matches.
Which ever type of site Japanese American single wishes to choose, the guidelines are relatively the same. The first thing for a Japanese American to do is to browse through different sites to see what they offer. Each site will be a bit different, profiles and pictures will be set up differently and profiles will ask different questions. Once a person finds a site that they feel comfortable on, it is time to join. This is very easy and should not be seen as intimidating.
The first step in the process is to create a good solid and fun profile. Most sites, whether a general online dating site of a site catering specially to Japanese American singles, will have an area in which a member will enter information about themselves. This is the time to get a bit creative. It is best to keep profiles short; as most people td onto have time to read very long stories. There will be many profiles, so it is best to add a few interesting details or funny statements to get someone’s attention.
This is also the area in which a Japanese American single can check off which different ethnic types of people they are interested in meeting.
Once the profile is complete, it is best to submit a photograph. Do not be shy. Profiles with pictures are looked at three times as often as profiles that do not have pictures. It is best to send in photos that show you relaxed and not posed. Any photo showing you enjoying a favorite hobby or interest is always great. It is best to include one head shot and one full length body shot. No one needs to look perfect. No one is a model unless they really are a model!
Once a profile and photograph is up and running, it is time to begin the search. A person may choose to do nothing; as they most certainly will receive emails and messages from others. However, to find a partner it is best to be pro-active and go looking. If one person does not reply, it does not matter, as there will be twice as many that do. A bit of flirting, a bit of chatting, a phone call and then a person may find they are never home alone again on a Saturday night.
