Internet dating tips.
The tricky part of forming a connection with someone is still up to you, but by following these tips, you will ensure that you don’t scare someone away! Whether you’re new to the world of online dating or need a refresher, we have the perfect tips for you!
1. Your photo is a big deal!
Depressing as it may sound, your smiling face is the first thing on which people will judge you. Keeping your photos looking fresh and smiley is proven to make you look confident, friendly, open and healthy. However, don’t be tempted to airbrush your photos or present yourself looking better than you do in real life, as this could cause confusion!
2. Keep your options open
It may feel strange but try not to keep all your eggs in one basket! When meeting a few people on a first date, don’t take it personally if they don’t look interested as they’re just keeping their options open. Alternately if they fall in love with you on the first date, play hard to get!
3. Choose your site wisely
Just choosing a dating site, let alone for a date, can be quite daunting as there are so many options. Some websites can match you with potential partners, while with others you have free rein to browse and pick your own.
4. Don’t date someone just for the experience
Let’s say that you’ve had a few matches but no one is knocking your socks off. It’s been a bit of a dry spell for you and you feel a little inexperienced when it comes to dating, so you think what’s the harm in going out with someone for a quick date? The harm is you could lead somebody on and waste valuable time. If you’re not interested – move on!
5. Be unique and specific in your profile
Everyone likes to have fun, chill out with friends, listen to music and so much more. So why not tell someone something that they don’t already know about you, like the table you built for your house or the song you wrote a couple of weeks back? Being specific helps you stand out and it also gives you an easy conversation opener.
