10 Tips For Dating Online
Online dating isn’t only built for socially challenged individuals but it’s designed for anyone who wants to find a match. In fact, 2% of the married couples in the US used an online dating site to look for a lifetime partner. Unfortunately, not all who utilize the tools of this site have found success.
So, if you are planning to find a date online, you need to heed to the following tips.
1. Find the right site
There are thousands of dating sites and you can sign up to each of them. But if you want to successfully find someone, you have to know what you’re looking for. Do you want to look for just a sex partner? Are you looking for a partner who’s religious? These things must be considered before you get into the bandwagon of online dating.
2. Make a well-written profile
But before you can score a date online, you’ll need to write a captivating profile. The best thing about dating online is the fact that you have plenty of chances to make a great first impression. Thus, when you create a captivating profile, you’ll have to use your best picture, write a great headline, and create a sexy username. When it comes to picture, you must stay real and it must be recent. And please avoid taking a self-portrait in front of a mirror.
3. Wear something red in your photos
Red is a sign that you’re on the market. But that’s not the only reason researchers advised women to wear red when looking for a partner in life. Another reason is that men tend to use the color as a sign that the wearer is receptive to amorous advances.
According to a research, most women who wear red clothing are interested or looking for sexual encounters. No matter what your purpose of wearing red clothing, this color is truly captivating, sexy and memorable.
4. Avoid taking a person just for face value
He may say something too good to be true on his profile. But you have to keep in mind that nobody’s perfect and most men lie in order to score a date, to have sex with you, to avoid rejection, etc. Because you can’t see him in-person, you have to be cautious about what he’s saying. Even though you’re dating online, you still need to spend more time with him to get to know him more. This is what dating is all about.
5. Don’t make the first move
You’re a nice girl and nice girls always wait for men to make the first move. Even if you’re too desperate to have a date, it still pays to wait. Men know that getting unsolicited emails from girls came from women who are in reek of desperation.
6. Keep your options open
There are tons of men online who seem to be perfect for you. But you have to keep your options open. Avoid dating the first guy you meet online, until you can be sure that he’s really into you. You have to accept the fact that such relationship might fail.
7. Meet him in person
Congratulations! Now that you’ve found someone whom you like and think that he’s appealing to your eyes, you have to meet in person and go on a real-life date. Even though you’ve been seeing each other online, meeting him the first time in person is still overwhelming. It’s daunting but you’ve to be yourself.
8. Be in various communities
That means you have to sign up in more than one site. But make sure that it meets your requirements. You can change site every now and then to find out which one offers the best online dating service.
9. Make a list
Not a shopping list. Rather, make a list of what you’re looking for in a guy. If you’re a thrill seeker, then you must choose someone with the same interests as yours.
10. Watch out for red flags
If you found a profile saying he’s not sure about describing himself, then it means he has low self-esteem. On the other hand, if his profile doesn’t show his full body, then he might be hiding something.
These tips aren’t scientifically proven, of course. But they’ve been tried and tested by women who’ve tried online dating and found a perfect match. It’s really up to you to learn how to stand out from the crowd.
