An interview with the CEO and Founder of ClickingOnline.com, Betty Kelly Sargent. Clicking Online is a Manhattan-based company that provides services to singles interested in maximizing their chances of finding love on the internet.
Q: What made you decide to start ClickingOnline.com?
A: One day when I was studying to become a certified life/relationship coach it just hit me. The biggest, deepest, darkest fear that many people have is that they aren’t loveable, and that they will never find someone to love and be loved by, someone who really “gets” them, someone to share their life with.
There it was. My goal as a coach would be to help these people work through the emotional blocks and negative thinking that had prompted them to think like this in the first place, and then help them find (and keep) that special someone.
Q: How did you know that starting an online dating company would be the way to achieve your goal?
A: I did a little research. According to some studies you increase the chance of finding the right person for you by 500 times when you try online dating — assuming you do it right. For the first time in the history of the world we have access to this amazing technology that allows us to connect with like-minded people all over the country, all over the world for that matter. All you have to do is know yourself (we help with that) and learn how to make it work for you.
Q: What’s the mission at Clicking Online and how, specifically, can you help singles looking for love ?
A: To help people master the special skills of Online dating while getting comfortable with who they themselves truly are and what they are looking for in a partner.

We write and edit your profile for you, we help you select and edit your photos and then, we give you 12 private, relationship-coaching sessions throughout the year. This way you will be able not only to find, but also to keep the relationship you want.
Q: What tips can you give for those new to the online dating community?
A: 1. Make your profile lively, fun to read and complete. We do this for you.
2. Post lots of recent photos, close-ups, action shots, smile, look friendly.
3. Search far and wide not just in your own neighborhood. You’d be surprised who’s where.
Q: How about some tips for those who have tried, thrown their hands up in despair and tossed in the towel when it comes to Online dating?
A: 1. Be patient.
