How to be Charismatic

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Charisma is a useful quality

Especially when it comes to dating

Would you like to me more charming and encourage others to warm to you quickly? I’m sure it’s a skill that we’d all like to have.

The actual word charisma comes from the Greek term for “gift of grace” and that sums it up very nicely. It generally means that the person is seen as more like-able as is someone that people admire and want to be associate themselves with.

Charisma is a rare, almost magical quality and it’s a strength that many successful people have.

The good news is that it’s definitely something you can learn and develop. Even a small improvement would make a huge amount of difference. You’ll end up with more positive dates and better interactions with everyone you meet each day.

Here are my quick “Dating Guru” tips to help you:

1) Which celebrities do you think have the gift of charisma? Think about how they act, speak, walk and behave. You’ll begin to notice little tricks that they do that make them stand out from the crowd. So all you need to do is copy this behaviour. You can’t fake charisma but after a while you’ll learn better habits and it will come naturally to you.

2) Smile always. Positivity and enthusiasm always come through smiling. Even if you aren’t feeling it, force yourself to smile and your mood will turn quickly.

3) Show empathy. Be a great listener and show that you care about other people. Leave people in a better state of mind than when you found them.

4) Be strong. Charismatic people are always firm and stick to what they believe in. Stand up straight and don’t fold your arms.

5) Learn to relax. Keep calm and enjoy the moment and others around you will do the same.

Good luck!

Basic User Permission Changes

Monday, May 21st, 2012

Today, we have made some changes to the Basic user Permissions.

We are proud of our database, which is both high quality and very active. In April 2012 our members generated 200,000 yes, that’s two hundred thousand interactions between profiles.

A Basic free profile is offered to anyone, so that they can properly evaluate the database of these members or attend events. So to enhance this opportunity, we have now made these features free to Basic users.

– View Photo Albums

– Advanced Searches

This will enable potential members to have a good look around the site before membership purchase, to check that we do indeed have lots of opportunities.

There is a little give and take.  We have made the following features available to paying members only.

– See who has viewed your profile

– See who has winked at you

– See who has added you to favourites

If you are just a basic user, consider that now is the best time to upgrade your membership and start sending out messages. Our database has never been busier and now offers more opportunities than ever.

A final note about Premium Plus

One final point about our PremiumPlus membership. If you do wish to engage with basic profiles, then we do have the “Reply Paid” message feature. This is available to PremiumPlus members. Reply Paid means anyone can read and reply even if they just have a basic profile.

Click Here to upgrade now.
Enjoy the site, and best of luck with your dating.
