Before the advent of the internet, dating was a completely different ballgame. Most people in previous generations knew -or at least knew about- any person they might potential date. People were introduced by friends and family members. Some marriages were even arranged. Today, social media…
Looking for love online
While there’s nothing wrong with being happily single or casually dating, this is the place for people who have realised that they’re looking for something more serious. It’s for people who are looking for love and commitment. However, the road leading there is obviously going on relaxed dates with different people and taking it slow, exploring people before you decide on who’s “the one.”
Being open-minded and putting yourself out there can be daunting at first. But here you’re doing it in a safe environment where everyone is after the same thing: finding true love. Online dating has lost the stigma it once had - today millions of people are using it and it’s one of the most popular ways of meeting people. Why? Because it’s convenient.
By giving a dating site a go, you’re no longer in the minority. More and more single men and women are realising that they`ve got a much better chance of finding someone online rather than relying on well-meaning friends or workplace romances.
Women Looking for Love - Tips and Tricks
If online dating’s new to you, check out some of our top online dating tips to get started. Finding new love, whilst not a science, does require some common sense.
First of all, write a short, but descriptive profile that shows off your personality. Avoid stating what you don’t like and what you aren’t looking for, rather state what you want and what you’re looking for - a positive attitude is attractive.
Secondly, upload at least 4-5 profile pictures, including one close up, one social shot and one shot doing what you love. Pictures is the perfect way of showing off your life.
Thirdly, get in touch with any man who catches your eye online. Send him a short message where you compliment him on something in his profile and ask a question about it. It’s a great way to get the conversation started.
Lastly, be sure to meet up with people as soon as possible. Online chemistry is not the same as offline one. That’s why you should give guys online you aren’t too sure about a chance. In real life they might be better.
The perfect first meeting? A quick drink or coffee. By keeping it short you avoid pressure and nerves.
