People have had success finding love and friendship online. Others have been unlucky with the same because of the choices they make before and during the online process. Simple mistakes can lead to negative results with your online dating efforts. Just like there are things you must do to increase your success rates, there are things you must avoid so as to reduce the chances of getting disappointed. When dating online, avoid the following.
Lying – It can be tempting to include false statements in your profile so as to attract more responses. In the process, you end up ruining your chances of a good relationship when the truth finally comes out. Never lie about things such as disabilities, children, sexual orientation and weight among others. Lying will only shoot down love before it even begins so be truthful or avoid including the information until it comes up in your conversations.
Being too choosy – You definitely have a clear picture of the person you are looking for. You however, should not include what you don’t like in a person. Talk about what qualities matter to you to attract the right attention without sounding too strict and choosy. Fact is you might find love where you least expect to find it.
Generic profile – It will not in any way make a statement on your behalf and is likely to yield no results at all. Give potential singles something to read and leave some room for curiosity to drive them in knowing you better. Create a profile that is interesting and good enough to find you potential matches.
Revealing everything too early – Women, especially have a way of giving too much information too early in dating. This is not advisable since it might end up making you very desperate and unstable. Things such as your ex and past negative experiences should be saved for later. It is actually advisable to keep them locked until that time your partner asks or till when you can honestly but wisely handle the issues. Stick to knowing each other better before anything else.
Giving too many compliments – You sure do want to sound excited and understanding during conversations by making compliments, but don’t end up giving them with every statement your partner makes. It can be irritating and put forth an image of desperation. You will seem as though you are working tooth and nail to impress your partner and this might come off negatively. Give compliments in the most deserving situations only.
Confusing between your dates – The good thing about online dating is that you have a choice to date several people at a go if you so wish. Unfortunately, it can be tricky when you have too much going on and you could end up confusing between your dates. Such confusions can put an end to a promising relationship. Be sure you know who you are talking to and what you talked about previously or just date one person at a time if it will give you a smoother time.
