Editorial: Relationship Philosophies From Online Daters
by Joe Tracy, Publisher of Online Dating Magazine

(December 2003) One of the great things about online dating is the ability to read a vast array of profiles. Some profiles are short and to the point, while others are philosophical in nature, presenting opinions and ideas for better relationships.

In my online dating experience I've viewed thousands of profiles of interesting people. I've been impressed enough with some of the philosophy some people present in these profiles that I've recently gathered a few philosophical tid-bits from online daters to share with you. It's amazing how much wisdom you can pick up from other people. Here's a few of my recent favorites:

"How the person you are with treats those without power, will give you excellent insight as to how that person will eventually attempt to treat you." From a profile on American Singles.

"My motto is: you were born an original, don't die a copy." From a profile on

"I think relationships are work, and building a strong foundation is the most important thing because while all the hearts and flowers and moonlit strolls on the beach are fabulous, what really wins out in the long run is friendship and genuine affection and respect for one another." From a profile on LavaLife.

"My philosophy is PMA - positive mental attitude, because being positive can make the impossible possible." From an profile on Veggie Date.

"I've learned that common interests are all well and good, but it's communication styles, core values and perspectives, and needs and wants that really make two people compatible." From a profile on

"I take from others things I really value in that person and remember it and try to incorporate into my life." From a profile on

"I don't believe there are any mistakes in life, just opportunities to learn." From a profile on LavaLife.

"I think I have something to learn from everyone, and that relationships and/or people are like mirrors, each one showing us a different part of ourselves so that we can know ourselves better through multiple diverse relationships." From a Profile on Veggie Date.

"Don't settle. What you are looking for is out there and it's worth the wait." From a profile on American Singles.

"I think finding a partner has more to do with finding a mental and spiritual connection and harmony with another person than just looks....but, without doubt, physical attraction is essential, though it falters and ultimately fails without depth of character and shared core values." From a profile on

I see the online dating experience as a way not only to meet great people - and an eventual soul mate to share life's dreams with - but also as a means of improving yourself through the shared wisdom of others.
