Written by Terry Dashner

Continued from page 1

You might answer this in frustration by saying that there are many factors involved inrepparttar equation of hate. I agree, but why do they boil over into hate for a human being simply because he looks different?

Forrepparttar 132195 next couple of weeks, I’m going to grapple with this question. I will try to avoid cliché and trite reasons as to why or why not. I will also refrain from suggesting overly simplified solutions on how to stoprepparttar 132196 hate. I will speak torepparttar 132197 topic honestly from my faith, experience, and educational perspective. And yet atrepparttar 132198 end of this series I will fall short, no doubt, because hate has to be actively resisted untilrepparttar 132199 end of time.

Nevertheless I want to throw another angle intorepparttar 132200 mix that, oftentimes, gets overlooked by sociologists, anthropologist and, yes, even religious apologists. I believerepparttar 132201 oversight has to do withrepparttar 132202 echelon of a demonic hierarchy that is present inrepparttar 132203 world order. (I tried to spruce uprepparttar 132204 word “demonic” to fitrepparttar 132205 hipster’s 21st century vernacular, but “demonic hierarchy…inrepparttar 132206 world order” isrepparttar 132207 best I can do. Sorry.)

I hope you will continue reading this series, at least until I have finished arguing my point. At that time you are free to delete withrepparttar 132208 press of a computer key. Or, you are welcome to rise torepparttar 132209 challenge that I present you atrepparttar 132210 end. It’s your choice. It’s my honor to welcome you aboard forrepparttar 132211 next couple of weeks. God is really, really, really good. Andrepparttar 132212 devil is really, really bad. That'srepparttar 132213 truth!

Keeprepparttar 132214 faith. Stayrepparttar 132215 course. One day hate will be swallowed up in love. I promise it's true.

Tweaking your profile: If you're gettingrepparttar type of responses you're looking for, great. If you're getting responses fromrepparttar 132194 wrong types of people or not getting as many responses as you'd like, then review your profile and think about how you can improve it and make yourself shine a little bit more. Most matchmaking systems have a place for you to edit your essay and parts of your ad. Take a look at it at least every couple of weeks.

How to search for a new friend: Each matchmaking system has different ways of searching for compatible profiles. Some have several ways. Typically these are MATCH, SEARCH, FIND, and some allow you to make a Search Profile that you can reuse. You can search by location, ideal height and weight, ethnic background -- even by interest in having kids inrepparttar 132195 future.

A high percentage on a multiple choice match is a good start but readrepparttar 132196 answers and look atrepparttar 132197 essay. The percentages may be great but thenrepparttar 132198 profile might be someone who sounds desperate and lonely, is someone just looking for sex or has totally different interests and values.

If there is a photo, look atrepparttar 132199 photo and remember thatrepparttar 132200 photo can be one taken yesterday or 5 years ago. Unlessrepparttar 132201 person is down right unappealing, remember that amateur/family photos don't always make a person look their best. Look for profiles that match your ideal characteristics but also hit yourepparttar 132202 right way -- dorepparttar 132203 writers sound funny? Intellectual? Love animals as much as you do? Like to travel?

Posting Photos: It is up to you to post a photo. You will increase your response rate TEN TIMES by posting a photo. People want to see who they are writing to, and many don't want to start a correspondence and waste time with someone that they don't know if there is even a initial attraction from a photo. If you want a lot of responses, you'd better have a picture. From my experience, and from what I've heard from others, it seems that people who don't have pictures of themselves are usually hiding something. So, if you don't have a picture, people are going to assume you look like a dog. If you are a high profile person inrepparttar 132204 city you live, offer in your profile to exchange photos from your personal (yahoo or hotmail, not your real email address). Make sure you put an accurate description of what you look like in your profile. You may want to say what celebrity you closely resemble.

People who say they don't have a photo or don't have a way to get one on line are either lazy or playing games. If you don't have a scanner at home or work, take a photo to KINKO's (they are everywhere). Have your photo or photos scanned in a .jpg format. Most matchmaking systems do not allow you to sendrepparttar 132205 zip files or unusable formats. Typically .jpg, .gif, and .bmp isrepparttar 132206 limit and they must be sized down. Photos should have a shirt on, clearly show your face (no sunglasses), well lit, no swimwear (except for secondary shots) and no family in your primary photo. Make sure you are smiling inrepparttar 132207 photo. (Who wants to meet someone who looks angry and glum). Many companies allow secondary shots that have your family and friends inrepparttar 132208 photos as long as you are inrepparttar 132209 photo. Don't use a photo in which you're dressed too revealingly -- you want to look elegant and alluring, but a picture of you in a bikini is going to attractrepparttar 132210 wrong kind of responses.

What should you not send? You car, house, boat, photos of your kids or friends by themselves, photos where your face isrepparttar 132211 size of a pencil head, photos with your ex, dark shots, anything revealing, etc. Send your best photos. Remember, FIRST IMPRESSIONS may be your only chance. Your most recent photo of you camping (once in 5 years) withrepparttar 132212 ball cap on may leave arepparttar 132213 impression that you don't want others to have. Again, think in terms of a resume. How would you want an employer to first see you? (Dressed nicely with your hair perfect). Ex. A good mix would be primary photo in a business suit or polo shirt, secondary photo out rock climbing with friends, third photo with two nephews at XMAS.

Out of Town or Unable to Answer email? Members of matchmaking systems expect responses to their emails quickly. If you can't answer emails for a week or two, edit your profile and atrepparttar 132214 top ofrepparttar 132215 essay say "I will be out of town for "x time frame" and will not have access to email. Please ear mark my profile and write me back at "x time frame" and I will be happy to respond when I return." This is especially important duringrepparttar 132216 summer months when people are on vacation and during holidays.
