5-Step Guide to Successful Online Dating

Modern world gives a significant advantage by allowing you to find a perfect match dating online. Almost half of couples, statistics say, reported to have been dating online at least once. A lot of people, though, make classic mistakes which alienate them from possible partners. In order to succeed in online dating follow these easy steps and be sure to get what you want.

5-Step Guide to Successful Online Dating



1. Work on your profile. Put your soul in it. Choose a photo the girl of your dreams would like to see. Choose a photo that represents your character. If you need, make a special photo. Ask somebody to make a photo of you, dress properly, and show your best qualities with a charming smile. Photo means a lot as many people who date online make their decision relying on photo. Do not think that everything is about looks, though. A good photo is only a start as there are hundreds of thousands of people out there with good photos. First step is to be among them.

Think about what makes you yourself. Make a list of qualities that make you different from others. In other words, what makes you original? Think of positive features and do not cling to your negative sides. Forget about them completely when you work on your profile.


2. There is absolutely no need to be humble on the internet. Humble people on the internet are mostly ignored. Because you do not experience discomfort, insecurity or stress meeting another person physically, there is no reason for your not to be active on the internet. Be creative, energetic, enthusiastic, and confident.

5-Step Guide to Successful Online Dating

Write down only truth. You can avoid putting down something you don’t want to share but don’t rely on lies. Any lie will be revealed sooner or earlier. Tell your real height and weight, job position, age, etc.
You should try keeping balance between openness and mystery. Don’t tell everything about you ahead. Don’t be secret about everything as well. Find a harmonic combination of what is known and unknown about you.


3. Learn from others on the internet. See how other people organize their profiles, what they do and how. Think about the effectiveness of their approach. Then, try to implement the best techniques to edit your own profile.

Make a realistic picture of yourself. Ask your friends how they perceive you and remember what your close acquaintances have said about you in the past. Define what of your interests make you special and which character features are dominating. Understand who you are and how others perceive you.


4. Be creative about your matches. Try to ask them out in original way. You can begin by just saying “hello” following it with a nice and warm remark about some of the interests of your match, her hometown (perhaps, you’ve been there) or compliment her education/job. The possibilities are endless so just try thinking out of the box.    


5. To achieve success in online dating you definitely need to know what you are looking for. Most of the online dating services provide you with the matches automatically. However, your task is to make a careful and accurate choice out of the matches you’re provided with. Try to imagine what kind of partner you might want to date. When you realize what you are looking for, it would be easier for you to find it. For example, perhaps you definitely don’t want to date a teenager girl just out of school without her place or a single mother of 3 children. Therefore, don’t waste your time and effort.
5-Step Guide to Successful Online Dating


All in all, successful online dating is primarily about making the right choices. What picture to use, what match to write to, what interests to put, and what to write about yourself, etc. These are all choices you need to make carefully and attentively. So, keep up the good work, go out there, and amaze them with your clever attitude.

How to Transfer Paypal Funds Through Skype Mobile App


Microsoft and PayPal have worked out a relationship that will allow Skype users to send money right through the app. Microsoft made the announcement yesterday, confirming that users in 22 different countries across the globe will be able to use the feature, as long as they have a PayPal account, and are using the iOS or Android app.

You’ll need to be in one of the following countries to use the feature: United States of America, Canada, UK (Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man) Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain.

The first time you use it, you’ll be asked to confirm your location within the app. Once that is confirmed you’ll need to link your PayPal account to your Skype account, and Microsoft makes sure to confirm that PayPal is handling the money transaction, and not Microsoft itself. The person sending the money also needs to make sure they are using the most up-to-date version of the Skype app, but the person receiving the money can apparently be using any version of the app.

You can use this feature in your new version of Skype straight inside the messaging app. While you are in conversation with a person, select the Find option at the top bar and choose Send money >> Choose the amount of money and confirm the payment.

However, this feature is designed for friends and family not for making transactions online such as payment of goods and services online.

Airtel Motivate Customers with ‘OvaJara x8’ Bonus on SmartConnect 4.0

SmartCONNECT is back! Get not just 8X your recharge, but all your recharge at the end of the month as DATA BONUS! #OvajaraBack2Sender


Airtel Nigeria, has announced additional benefits on its SmartConnect package, offering 100 percent value of a customer’s recharge as extra data in addition to the 8 times instant bonus customers get on every recharge. 

With the new SmartConnect package, Airtel customers will receive bonus data that is commensurate to the total value of their recharge at the end of a calendar month and also get eight times the value of every recharge, instantly, any time they recharge their lines.

Airtel’s SmartConnect 4.0, which is nicknamed ‘Ovajara x8’, is the default prepaid plan specifically designed for new customers on the network.

With SmartConnect 4.0, when a customer buys a new Sim, registers and inserts it in a device, he/she begins to enjoy the ‘Ovajara’ 8 times bonus and in addition gets the total value of his recharge as data bonus by end of the month.

For instance, if a customer recharges with NGN 200, he/she gets NGN 200 in his main account and receives a bonus of NGN 500 for voice calls, N500 for data, with an additional NGN 200 airtime to call family & friends, and an extra bonus of NGN 200 for social (WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook and BBM), which makes a total of NGN 1600 airtime on every NGN 200 recharge. As additional benefit, the customer then receives data bonus worth NGN200 at the end of the month.

A recharge of NGN1000 gives NGN 2,500 bonus for calls to all networks, another NGN 2,500 bonus for data (500MB) and NGN 1000 airtime for calls to family & friends. Customers will also receive extra NGN 1000 airtime for access to social media. By the end of the month, data bonus of N1000 is given to the customer.

The airtime in the main account will remain valid until exhausted while all bonuses have a seven-day validity. Customers can roll over all bonuses as long as they recharge within seven days else all unused bonuses will be lost.

Subscribers only get the data bonus for the first three months, while the ‘Ovajara’ 8 times bonus continues. Any recharge less than N200 on SmartConnect 4.0 does not attract data bonus, which is given at the end of the month as total value of recharge, but enjoys only the ‘Ovajara’ 8 time bonus.

Customers can dial *126*PIN# to recharge and dial*123# to check account balance.

You need to grab an Airtel new sim now to start enjoying.

Finally, Etisalat Nigeria Changes Name To “9Mobile Telecom”

Etisalat Nigeria on Thursday, July 13, changed its name to 9Mobile following the debt crises and other issues affecting the brand in the country. Premium Times reports that after a meeting of the management of the firm on Thursday in Lagos, 9Mobile was adopted by the company as the new brand name.
Finally, Etisalat Nigeria Changes Name To “9Mobile Telecom”

Though they had promised that the internal operations will not be affected and staffs will not be laid off only the name will change and it has changed.

This happened after Etisalat International issued 3 weeks ultimatum to change the name or… Now that the name has changed, you should begin to see the effect of the name change from your mobile device any moment soon.

We should be expecting adverts on media outlets to create awareness to the public and am sure it's just a matter of time before we get used to the new name.

Note that the changed of Etisalat name won't affect your Etisalat line, your data plans, your airtime, your subscriptions or your tariffs as everything is still intact.

The name sounds strange, but with time, you’ll be used to it.
What do you think about the new name?

How to Take Screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S8

Taking screenshots on Android is nothing new—in fact, all devices have supported screenshots since the 4.0 release way back. Samsung had screenshot capabilities longer than that, and up till now, it goes a little crazy with screenshot-related features on the Galaxy S8.

How to Take Screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S8


The new Galaxy S8 and S8+ were unveiled on March 29th with an April 21st release date. Both phones have huge screens, a sleek new design and no home button. Instead the fingerprint scanner is on the back near the camera.


There are two ways to take a screenshot on the Galaxy S8, and both of them will be explained.


Those who are familiar with other Android smartphones will find this even more easier. That’s because a quick and simple button combination will instantly capture whatever is on the screen.


For those who has no idea what this is or what it’s all about, a screenshot (or screencap, screengrab) is capturing and saving everything on the Android screen. Additionally, this can then be edited or cropped to get exactly what you want.


Capture/Screenshot on the Galaxy S8


Taking a screenshot is a very simple thing on Galaxy S8. All you need to do is press and hold the power and volume down buttons at the same time. Press, hold and let go. That’s one of the two methods, the easiest one.


Press and hold Power and Volume button down at the same time, to take a screenshot. Briefly press and hold down both buttons at the same time, then release. You’ll see and hear the screenshot capture sound. That’s all. The phone saves whatever was being displayed, and you can view it from your gallery.


Smart Capture


A setting is enabled under “Advanced settings” called “Smart capture” which shows extra information after a screenshot. Like instantly taking another screenshot or capture entire webpage or crop and share it immediately. It looks similar to the screenshot shown below from the Galaxy S7.

The extra smart features are nice to have, but get in the way of taking multiple screenshots quickly. As the phone has to wait for the popup of options. Owners can head into Settings > Advanced Options and disableSmart Capture” to deactivate it.


Galaxy S8 Screenshot Using Gestures

  • Activate gestures: go to Settings > Advanced features.
  • Enable Palm swipe to capture.


Once activated, you can now grab a screenshot on Galaxy S8 using gestures.


1. Go to the screen that you want to take a screenshot of.


2. Now swipe the edge of your hand from right to left or left to right, horizontally.

3. Your phone will buzz a little and show you a quick animation to confirm the screenshot.


This edge-to-edge swipe gesture may take you a few tries to master, but it makes taking screenshots so much easier and quicker.


Conclusion


If you happen to notice you’re taking screen shots accidentally, it’s probably the palm-swipe method. Here’s how to turn it off.


Settings > Device > Advanced features > Palm swipe to capture > and toggle the on/off button. As a reminder, all older Samsung smartphones or tablets with a home button follow different directions.


Just hold power and the home button simultaneously, and it snaps a screenshot. This new method is only for the Galaxy S8 and S8+.


When you enable Smart capture, it could be a little annoying especially if you have to take multiple screenshots quickly, as you face an additional pop-up after every single screenshot. You can keep it disabled except for the times you need to take scrolling screenshots. Do note, however, that the Smart Capture also opens doors to a number of other features like cropping or drawing on screenshots, or sharing them with a contact or through another app.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Specification 2017

Samsung Galaxy S8 most striking feature is its curved Infinity Display that visually stretches from edge to edge. The screen is also taller, allowing the phone to be handled with one hand, while providing plentiful display space.




The physical buttons have been replaced with on-screen ones, while the fingerprint scanner has been re-positioned on the back. The camera is similar to the one on the Galaxy S7, On the hardware front, the Snapdragon 835 provides plenty of processing power, all while being more energy-efficient than its predecessors.


As the name suggests, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a larger version of the Galaxy S8, with an even bigger, 6.2-inch Infinity display stretching from edge to edge. But the additional space has allowed Samsung to fit in a bigger, 3500mAh battery. The camera is similar to the 12MP unit found on the Galaxy S7, but improved software processing.
