Yesterday I registered as an au pair and simply sent out messages to families whom I found appealing. However, I prefer to wait until a specific family contacts me. I am sure that they read my message already. What should I do now?

We appreciate the fact that this issue is concerning you. We quite often receive enquiries from disappointed families complaining that au pairs do not reply to their messages. Even if you are waiting for a reply from a specific family, you should not keep other families waiting. You would not like that happening to you either, would you?
Depending on how popular a host country is, a family may receive many applications. If you have already received positive replies from host families, this is a great start. Now you should find out if you really match and if you both can imagine living together. This is something that cannot be guessed in advance relying on the profile alone. You can only find out by contacting someone personally. Here are some tips for a fair communication:
