Finding dates online automatically means you are connecting digitally in one way or another. That turns your dating hardware into an important part of your personal style and it can have a big impact on how successful you are at finding hookups. Here are some tips from the geeks at Hookupland to make sure you are always one step ahead.
Choose Your Phone by Functionality
There are phone fads and new phones that hit the market all the time, but when you’re choosing a phone for yourself, try to focus on what kind of functionality it offers. It’s easy to get distracted by their billion dollar ad campaigns or a list of features that you probably won’t ever use, so when you are upgrading, make sure your new cell helps you stay connected at least as well as your old phone did. Can you reply to dating messages in your inbox easily? Does your phone make uploading new profile pics a snap? Is it able to work with every part of the dating sites you are already using? The key is to think of your phone as an extension of your dating life.
Own a Quality Webcam
Lots of connections online go from chat to webcam quickly, especially now that most dating enthusiasts have Skype installed. Having an older webcam or a bad mic only serve to make you look worse or difficult to hear. Top quality cam gear is affordable and snaps right onto your screen in seconds. Take a few minutes to make sure your gear makes you look your best. You’ll also want to make sure there is nothing dirty or embarrassing behind your chair, in your webcam background.
Use Calendars and Schedules
Nothing wrecks your hookup chances harder than forgetting when you were supposed to meet. Missing a first date is the same as missing all of them. Having a simple calendar app installed on your phone and computer helps you stay in sync. It may seem easy when you have just one date to keep it all straight, but it gets a lot more complicated when you’re juggling several women every week.
Just like a craftsman building a new project, the tools you use have a direct effect on the final results. Build your dating portfolio right from the start with simple effective gear that helps you go from one date to the next.
