Australias First 3d Virtual Chat Rooms Launched
Rod Davies said he compiled the site after seeing thousands of singles using services that don’t grow with users needs in today’s modern market. "Because I spent years online chatting to people, I realized the potential of this vast network for helping singles jump-start in a user friendly 3D enviroment and broaden their social aspects in a medium with which they've become quite comfortable," Davies said
The site, described as "impressive" by Kevin Jewel, a brand manager for get found in Google. Provides not only 3D virtual worlds, but directs singles to numerous flash chat rooms. Direct email system, compatibility scoring and singles events at which they can post singles events they wish to attend or events they are organizing for free. "Ticket4one offers one-stop shopping for singles," said the site's creator, Rod Davies, a 10 yr veteran of the online dating industry.
"It's a very well done and comprehensive site," said Brad Hauck, special consultant at Promotesem.com. The site is designed to offer greater breadth and scope than similar 3d virtual chat sites, Hauck said. "Unlike other chat sites, Ticket4one doesn't advertise all over the users, in fact no advertising is seen anywhere in any chat room," he said. Hauck noted that the frequently updated site is also the only one to provide a comprehensive 100% human edited anti-spam control.
Davies explained that from the comfort of their own homes, singles can, for example, post their profile to thousands of people across the 3d virtual chat rooms, thus vastly expanding the number of singles to which their real life profiles are exposed. "They can also search for other singles around the world, as well as create their own personal chat rooms and choose who they want to let in and keep out,"

Better Online Dating Communication
Tips For Building Your Online Dating Profile
Improve Your Matches by Being Clear About what your looking for
The first step in increasing others interests in you is to be clear about what you are looking for and write that into your profile.
Be clear in your profile about what you are looking for in order to weed out others. If you only want to date local men who are within 3 years of your age then you should clearly state:
I'm interested only in communicating with 22-28 year old men who live within 20 miles of Phoenix, Arizona."
Use the Subject Header as a Filter
If you cant think of anything to say in your profile header then use it as a filter like:
interested only in 22-28 year old men
State What Action You Want Interested People to Take
There are so many options to take when contacting a member of the opposite sex online eg. kisses ,IM ,emails etc. So be specific about the type of action you will respond to. like..
"If you're interested in communicating, send me a kiss and I'll send an email your way."
When Communicating Via Email or Chat
It's amazing what people will say to each other when they feel protected from harm behind a computer screen.
When you're communicating with someone via email or chat keep in mind that there is a real person on the other end with real feelings. Be respectful with the words you use.
In addition, if you are no longer interested in communicating with the person, don't just "fall off the face of the earth". Send them a short and respectful note that you are pursuing some other matches and wish them the best of luck. It is the respectable thing to do.
For Conversation Ideas, Closely Reread the Person's Profile
One of the keys to good communication is talking about something that interests the other person. You can get amazing clues to their interests by carefully rereading every aspect of that person's profile and by closely analyzing the background of any pictures they have posted.
For example, if someone says in their profile "I love to travel" then that is your cue to ask questions like "what's the most fascinating place you've ever traveled to?"
By showing an interest in the other person's interests you are improving the communication that the two of you share

Dating sites VS social networking
We asked Rod Davies and Expert in online dating trends what his thoughts were. " I have been on myspace for a few years now and studied other users activities closely. Its funny but I honestly believe the ratio of business users on myspace by far outnumbers any profile that even looks like its real.
The evidence is clear for all to see. myspace is constantly re-engineering their entire platform to keep spammers and FAKE USERS from stealing traffic?
When I first joined myspace you could actually send thousands of friends request without having to fill in a security code. Now they only let you send 10.
You also used to be able to send unlimited comments to friends without having to fill in those silly security codes.
And now every time you hit a link on someone’s profile you are re-directed to a myspace page warning you about people (phishing your profile).
So naturally when I see all these items changing in the world of social networking, I can’t help but think of the type of people that need to be controlled to this extent.
Personally, I think a lot of social networking sites are full of time wasters just wanting to plug their own business. And that’s fine if your into that kind of thing. But when your actually looking for real life people that actually want to meet new friends and socialize Dating sites are around 90% more successful."
Ticket4one is gaining pace with the trends of dating sites and social networking all rolled into one. WHY? Because Ticket4one.com's profile approval process is 100% human edited. Weeding out those fake profiles.

What Users Say are the best tips for Dating
This is the top ten list of tips (not in any specific order)
#1 by crkian
I haven't been out dating for so long.
Be yourself is a must though
#2 by gmoney
radical honesty. Be honest at all expenses.... if she can handle real honesty (not brutal honesty) but radical honesty then it will be all good. To many people send out a representative of themselves out on a date. This means they are not their real self. Be you and practice radical honesty!!!
#3 by acousticguitarist
don't try and be over amorous on the first date
#4 by rileycentral
Do something you both are relaxed and make sure if its an early date that you meet somewhere. It sucks when you feel like you are trapped and can't leave. This is going way back for me though, I got married in 2002

Here is my first advice. When your on the date you will probably go to a shopping area, just to look around. Keep your ears open and see if she is interested in anything. For example, you see her pick up a perfume and tries it on and she likes it. Remember which one she liked. After you go somewhere else, tell her you have to go to the bathroom. Run to the store and buy it. Now this is the hard part. All woman have purses. They love their purse and never let it out of their site. You have to somehow put the perfume into her purse. I suggest in the movie theater where it is very dark. After the date is over. She will go home and maybe that night or the next day she will find that wonderful surprise. She will HAVE to give you a call. That gift got you, a second call, showed your not cheap, showed your romantic, and most likely got you a second date. You know she will tell her girlfriends and her girlfriends will LOVE you which is another plus. Doing this will not make you look creepy, it works! Woman love this kind of stuff.

Don't try to make your partner drunk..

Hmmm, From a gal's perspective as to what we want on a date....
I haven't dated in some time now....but.....let's see. Don't puke on her shoes (I think it's relatively OK for a gal to puke on his shoes, but like I said, it's been a while), and, what else...
Oh yeah, there will be no giving of the Christmas "goose" early, got it? Chicks don't dig that.
Other than that, let the gal go into the mosh pit first, giver first crack at the bastard who did goose her (then thoroughly pummel him, thats chivalry), let her buy her own beers....and don't piss off anyone in her circle of friends. They are likely to be larger and meaner than you.
Yup, thats about it.

don't go out with a loaded weapon.

Well, I think I've learned today that no matter how tempting it is, you should probably avoid dressing up like Lion-O of the Thundercats if you are trying to impress a woman on a date.
(sorry folks but this next one was just too funny not to add)

1/When on a date be interested in her and try not to go on about your wife.
2/Never pay for the date as women find his offensive.
3/Tell her before the date starts the level of intimacy she will be allowed to achieve afterwards, this should stop any embarrassing moments.
4/Women enjoy football immensely so try to steer the conversation towards this topic she will be impressed by our thoughtfulness.
5/Don't bother dressing up for your date, women like a project and she will see your lack of style and basic hygiene as an interesting challenge
