Once seen to be solely the domain of the 'unlucky in love', online dating has hit the big time. Research has found that around half of Australians are trying or have tried to find love online.

If you're looking for love on the web or a smartphone app, there are a few things you can do to make your search a little bit easier (and more fun!). We'll tell you a few tips in this guide, plus give you online dating coupon codes to help you save in your quest for love!

4 tried and true online dating tips

Spend time on your bio

You don't have to be try and be Hemingway, but writing a good bio can mean the difference between a swipe left and a swipe right! Spend a little bit of time getting your bio just right and make sure to include all the interesting bits about yourself – job, hobbies, and maybe a joke!

Don't over-contact

Finding someone you like online is great, but you don't want to scare them off by sending them a thousand messages in the first hour. Try and space out your communication in the early days even if you're getting all the right signals.

Pick the right profile image

It can be tricky picking out a photo for an online dating profile, but it doesn't have to be. If you're not sure, just let your friends and family help you choose. A study from 2017 found you pick less favourable photos of yourself than if you let others choose. The lesson here: let your friends help.

Set your distance!

Don't be scared about extending the distance settings on your dating app to further away than you're used to. The best thing about online dating is that you're able to find people you wouldn't normally run into in your social circles. But, remember you'll still need to travel to see them, so make the distance manageable.
