Win Her Over On Facebook

With the right approach, you can turn Facebook into your best possible dating ad. Here are some pointers to maximise your hit ratio. 

Update In The Morning
To get her attention – and not get lost in everybody else’s afternoon chat – post updates between 8am and 8.15am. Social media analysts found that morning updates get 39 per cent more responses, increasing the chance of a first-thing flirt over your breakfast.

Post More Often 
Women receive 55 per cent more posts than men. “To shout over that noise, up the frequency,” says Dan Zarrella, coauthor of The Facebook Marketing Book. Use  likebutton.com, which tells you what links your lady friend is responding to. Tailor your posts accordingly and she’ll keep coming back for more.
 
Sunset Makes You Look Better
Take your profile photo just after sunrise or sunset. A survey of photos by an online  dating portal found this can make you look seven years younger. Twilight makes you  appear more attractive, compared to flash photography. Who needs Photoshop?
 
Make Your Status A Positive One
“Pepper your status updates with positive words like ‘perfect’ and ‘joy’,” says Zarrella. This was found to make her 32 per cent more likely to strike up a conversation.
 
Don't Smile At The Camera
To make your profile photos count, psychologists at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK recommend that you include a shot where you’re not smiling or looking at the  camera. The research shows this will make women 20 per cent more likely to initiate a conversation.
 
Go To Where The Women Are
Raise the number of women viewing your page by downloading Badoo, a location-based  dating tool that puts your profile in front of nearby women looking for dates. A poll on the app found that complimenting her lips is the surest way to get an offline date.
