My name is Laurence… and back in 2005, my long-term relationship with my girlfriend came to an end, and I suddenly found myself in the “singles arena” again. I lived in Norway in a little town far from everything and since I had been out of the dating scene for years, I had no clue how to ask women out. I was shy and nervous of approaching women… and my lame efforts to ask women out always failed miserably.
Then one day my friend asked my why I didn’t try online dating.
It seemed like a good idea…instead of wasting my time hanging out at bars, clubs, parties, social events etc. I could just sit in front of my computer, join an online dating website, and e-mail all the attractive women I can find from the comfort of my own home… Then, all I’d have to do is wait for the women to e-mail me back, send me their phone number so that we can talk on the phone and get to know each other… and then go out on a date.
I joined one of the biggest and most reputable dating sites. I was a little nervous… didn’t really know how to write a good profile or anything. I just uploaded a photo and wrote what most guys had on their profiles (*big mistake – see profile tips) and started to send lot of ‘winks’ and some emails. Of course I didn’t get any response to that… well I got a few, but they turned out to be scammers
This lack of response I would get from the e-mails I sent to women was frustrating . And here I thought my e-mails were unique, polite, cute, clever, interesting, sensitive… and everything I thought a woman would want in a man. I sent out dozens of them and even more winks… thinking that would cause at least one of them to e-mail me back. Sadly, no e-mails came.
I was determined to get this to work, so I started doing some research. I purchased and studied ebooks and guides from dating- and online dating experts and gurus, tested and tried everything i learned in my online dating – creating a good profile, how to email, get their phone numbers and how to approach and act when you actually meet the woman for real.
Well – all I can say is that it worked… I started to get the results i wanted. I applied the techniques and ‘made them my own’… tested and tried more things. Now, few years after I get 80% – 90% responses on my emails and I have so much more fun in my online dating now.
I also found, that there are several hundreds of dating services out there now. There is dating sites in all different niches and categories – by sexual orientation, ethnicity, regions, foreign brides, adult, std… and more. It can be a little confusing when you first start and want to join a online dating site.
That’s why i decided to make this web site to help you pick the right dating site for you and get the results you want faster. Dating eScene is a ‘All In One Guide’ to online dating. We categorize and review the most popular dating services, we think is worth joining. The ebooks and dating guides from the dating experts, that helped me is also available here and I give tips and advice from my own experience here too.
Remember…always have fun with it.
