So you’re considering giving online dating a try but you’re not sure exactly of what you should be doing? Don’t worry, it is only natural to be nervous, and it shows that you actually care about making things work so it’s a good thing. You have probably been told many times by your friends that it is worth giving it a shot, but they probably haven’t explained you how things work so this is why you are still hesitating. Well look no further, here is a little guide of what to do / what not to do when trying to find love online.
Tip#1: figure out what you want first
To start, it is important that you know what you intend to do. Some people want love whilst others just want to have fun, and it is important that you make the distinction between the two. Let’s say you are looking for a long-term partner, then you should use a serious / traditional dating website where members are looking for the same. On the other side if you are on the naughty side of things and you just want to meet and fuck someone without any attachment, then you will be better off using a naughty adult dating website. Using the right website brings you to the right place where you can ask the right questions without being rejected by others, so choose wisely as it will affect your chances of success.
Tip#2: take your time
Online dating means that you get to do things from your own computer in your own home; so you have the time and space to make the right decisions. It is different than being face-to-face with a stranger; you will feel a whole lot less pressure and this will allow you to make better decisions. Taking your time means you will be more likely to spot fake profiles and scammers; as they are actually quite easy to spot. Basically as long as you keep your head together you will see when someone’s profile just looks too perfect; and you will also be able to filter out all the people who try to rush you into anything. Bottom line is: follow your own pace and don’t let anyone pressure you into anything and you will be fine.
Tip#3: be polite, respectful and considerate
People don’t like it when someone is being rude to them, no matter what you might have seen in movies. This applies to traditional serious dating, but also to naughty dating. Just because someone wants to have some bedroom fun doesn’t mean they should be talked to badly; there is just no call for this. When you talk to people, make sure they hear who you are and what you want; but also ensure that you take the time to listen to their needs. Being attentive to what they want and asking them questions will show that you care for them, and they will know that they are in good considerate hands if they decide to get together with you.
Those are the three basics behind online dating, try to follow those tips and you will not only have a better experience, but your potential partners will also have a better time. Just remember it’s as much about you as it is about the people you approach, so make sure you consider both ends of the spectrum and you should find all the success you’ve ever desired!
