A virtual assistant or VA is your personal assistant who works remotely. Their scope of work is limitless. Some VAs do data entry work for you if you are too busy to do it on your own, some manage your business social media account, and some may manage your schedule. It may be bizarre but VAs do manage your dating profiles too!
Jenny* has been working online through Upwork for about three years now but sadly, her long term contract ended last January. The competition was fierce. She needed money and she needed it soon so she applied for every job that she thought she qualified but there’s a limit on applications and she started losing hope. “I was thinking of just going back to an office job but I have kids. I can’t leave them at home because my husband is also working so I kept on looking for work in the platform.”
What if you meet someone online that you wanted to meet offline but then you suddenly lost interest or you discovered something that is a deal-breaker; would you tell that person to cancel the offline date or are you going to make an excuse? If you cancel the date straight forward, he or she might be disappointed but at least you cut the ties earlier rather than wasting time or hurting his or her feelings even more.
Some people from dating sites are afraid to say frankly that they don’t want to meet anymore to avoid disappointments. What they do not realize is that they make further damage when they lie. So how are you going to know if someone is not going to show up?
Learn how to spell. Sure, it is a dating site but erroneous messages will land you nowhere if you are attracted to women of wisdom. It might work for teenagers but for god’s sake, install a spell checker before you send your message if you are not used to double-checking your writing. Nobody’s perfect. But sending a text-like message shows that you did not bother to put an effort. It is a known fact that some people online send the same message to multiple women. Most likely, you will not receive a response as it is something that mature women don’t want to hear on a dating site.
There are tons of spell checker tools online that can help you. A Word application can catch most of the spelling mistakes. Grammarly is also a big help. It catches wrong word usage aside from spelling mistakes for free.
