Hey Lindsay here with some more great advice.
Everything is instantaneous nowadays, including romance – the sad fact is that nothing is ever as easy as it sounds. Many people are still single. Lonely people are cozying up to sex robots, while others have shrunk back, spending nights with Game of Thrones and a bagful of popcorn. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. Below are ways to get your romance back on track with online dating.
Top Tips When Dating Online
You have probably tried online dating and paid for it or used free sites before and got nowhere. Or maybe you intend to put yourself out for the first time. Below are general tips for finding your Romeo or Juliet in the jungle of ones and zeros.
1. Safety First
It is a big world out there, and the digital sphere is just another universe. There are good things out there, but there are also horrid things too so stay safe. When getting into online dating, notify a family member or friend. When hanging out with someone you found online, please make sure it’s a public place. Steer clear of people who instantly call you for booty calls or sleepovers, or anyone who seem very urgent to meet you before getting to know you.
2. Be confident
It is like going for a night out – confidence is critical to get lucky. The first thing when dating online, for that matter is to put up an impressive bio. Your profile is who you are- your kikes, your wants, your dislikes and much more about you. Accompany that with a beautiful photo. What kills the luck for most people is the fact that they shy off from completing their profiles. A half-complete profile will not do you any justice. Potential matches will swipe left.
3. Play a little hard to get
So, you have met someone you are crazy about? Good, don’t contact them too much. You might be thinking about them every minute of the day and may want to spend all your time with them. Patience is key. People show their true colors with time so to know someone you will have to be patient. If you encounter someone that calls and texts regularly that could be cyberstalking– walk away. Online romance takes a balance.
4. Do some background check, but don’t let it slip
It is just natural that once you meet someone, you like you will want to know more about them. You can google their name or find their Facebook and Instagram pages. A background check is necessary to ascertain that you are going to hang out with someone safe. But given that you will see details like education background and previous relationship information on their social media pages, you have to keep it buried inside until they tell you all about themselves. Others you will come around like a stalker.
5. Take your time and choose the right one
That is the power of the internet so take advantage of it – you get to meet with many people so you can decide the right one. Don’t be in a rush to ask someone out, or to go on a date with the first person who asks you out. Then when hanging out, don’t feel pressured to like a person, or to go home with them. Go for as many dates as it takes to find the Mr. or Mrs. Right.
