TAU2 is a site for serious dating, its members are looking for long-term relationships and marriage. There are a lot of members on the site and it will take a long time to look through all the profiles. It means that, on top of conducting your own search, you should to make it easier for your potential partner to find you. And the higher the position of your profile in the catalogue, the easier it is to find you as your profile has a better chance of being noticed.
Make The First Step
It is quite easy to have your profile listed on the first page of the catalogue. All you need to do is send a postcard or a letter and then your profile will be automatically moved to the very top. Don’t wait until someone writes to you, write to the person you like yourself!
To make a good impression on your addressee and to increase your chances of getting a reply, you should think about presentation. In this regard you are free to be creative: TAU2 provides its users with an opportunity to send any personalised postcards (except the animated ones). A scenic photograph personally taken by you, a collage of your photos or any picture you like can all be used as a postcard: all you have to do for this is to add the picture into your profile. There is also a huge collection of readymade postcards on TAU2, you can find them at http://tau2.com/cards.php.
The best choice for the first postcard is your own photo. Use a good shot which shows your face well. It is even better if it is not just a boring portrait but something easy to remember. For example, some photographs that show your hobbies or set the mood for the coming conversation. Do not be afraid to experiment and have fun!
Make Yourself Understood
When you write a message, try to use the language that your addressee understands. If you find this hard, TAU2 can help: in the text of postcard or letter the addressee will have a link to a free electronic translation of your message. In any case, it is better if you know beforehand in what language to write. It is not a good idea to switch the language of the interface on the page for sending postcards or letters as in this case you will lose all the information about the addressee and will send the message to yourself instead.
Where To Start
Now you know another, very effective and easy, way to make your profile go to the top of the list. Look through the profiles, choose the person you like and send a postcard. Who knows, maybe this message will be the start of your love story.
You can see on which page of the catalogue your profile is located now by clicking on Account Details on the left. By clicking on More info you will see the detailed information about the status of your profile: how often you send and receive letters, how many profiles you look through, how often your own profile is visited.
If You Don’t Want Your Profile To Go Up
If you like, you can send a postcard or a letter without having your profile move to the very top of the catalogue. You can turn off the automatic movement of your profile on the page where you write the text of your message: it is enough to check the appropriate option (above the Send Postcard button).
