When you join a dating site you’ll start to read profiles of other members? You come to these profiles with your own set of expectations. Let’s look at how these expectations affect you.

The chances are your expectations were sky high. You’ve taken the step to join a dating and introduction agency and you’re probably hoping deep down that you are going to meet your perfect soul mate. You’ve probably read stories of other people like you who joined  and went onto get married. You were told it could easily happen to you, and you are probably hoping that your perfect person will be in your first batch of profiles.

Perhaps they are in which case don’t read any further. But if they haven’t jumped off the page…. then you’ll probably be feeling disappointed.

Now here’s the important thing.

1) We can’t say it enough but don’t judge people by their profiles. You WON’T get it right – and if you do so you will miss someone who could set your world alight (but you won’t be able to tell from their profile)

2) You’re in this for the long haul. Joining friends1st is not a quick fix to your relationship status. Yes some people do meet their soul mate immediately but they are few and far between.

For most people they have to work at it (that means contacting others, making the effort to meet people and keep up that effort) and this definitely involves you too.

So whatever you are feeling now having received your first set of profiles remember this is only the beginning of your journey – no two profiles are ever the same.

Keep a check of your feelings and don’t let them get in the way of what you want to achieve.
