With so many men seeking single girls and vice versa most online dating agencies have enormous numbers of people on their books. This can pose quite a problem for you the user. How on earth can you go through all of those profiles to find the sort of person you're looking for? One way of simplifying things would be to register with a matchmaking service rather than online dating agency, the differences which we have discussed earlier. However, some dating agencies do offer a variety of ways to make your search a bit simpler.

Suppose you are in the men seeking single girls section and you are a keen cyclist. You may decide that you would like to find a partner that is also keen on cycling. Some online dating agencies offer the opportunity to search by keyword so you might do a search for women that have included the word cycling, bicycle or bike in their profile. You can apply this idea in many other situations to find someone that you have some things in common with. You can then use this information to give you a point of mutual interest to help you start writing your first message.
Some internet dating agencies give you the option of finding someone that lives in a certain area. The way that this works varies widely from site to site but it may be as simple as you saying you want to meet someone in your home city or even perhaps County or region. The most sophisticated will actually allow you to specify how far you wish to travel in terms of a number of miles based on your home post code or zip code. Remember that they almost always calculate distances as the crow flies so if you live in a mountainous region you may well find that the road distance is considerably further than you specified. So you might say that you are willing to travel 60 miles to meet someone. Remember that the further you are prepared to travel the greater the number of matches you will receive. However, to save yourself the time, money and effort of a long journey you should try to get to know someone as well as you can before travelling too far.
Other sites give you the option of remembering your search criteria for you and they will run a search for you from time to time. This is very useful, but it's worth revisiting your search criteria from time to time to ensure that you're still happy with it based on your most recent experiences. They can then notify you of any new profiles that meet your requirements. This can save you a great deal of time but you still have to remember to check your e-mail on a regular basis. This feature may actually be more useful to men than women as less women usually register than men so you want to be at the head of the queue to make contact first! Other services, like Pearmatch.co.uk are completely live so that every time you log in a new search is run and new matches presented to you. Of course, as other people log in they may match with you so you will also be notified. This really helps to keep your match list fresh and current.
