I have been a relationship critique for quite sometime now though in most cases I have been skeptical about online dating; not that am against it but I found it to be more unrealistic. Why not date someone you know? A person you can talk to face to face?
One thing I came to realize though is that it is better to accept the reality of life than find comfort in my own cocoon. Online dating is real and it should be accepted and embraced rather being chastised.
With our kith and kin struggling with relationships, many have tried to find solace in online dating sites with the hope of finding the perfect match with minimal stress and struggle.
Sincerely it’s no easy stuff but you can thank me later if you follow these tips as gospel truth and follow them holistically.
Unfortunately, many people have an assumption that we are in real life whom we are online. Hell no! Most people paint a total contrast of who they are when it comes to online matters and of course for obvious reasons.
When you are seriously searching for Mr. or Mrs. right online then you are not to paint a contradicting picture of who you really are; lest you fall for a totally opposite person you’ve never wished for.
What’s that again? Yes, you got it right, be pessimistic! Not only should you be pessimistic while dating online but also in real life dating you got to be a little pessimistic so as to save yourself multiple heartbreaks and disappointments.
Not that it doesn’t work at all. I mean I have seen some of very close people I know who have dated and even married partners they met online. Only that it is good to be cautious and not be ‘so much into it’ when you first subscribe to the dating site.
Be ready to meet all kinds of people; jokers, time wasters, those interested and those who aren’t.
3.Play some anonymity
I don’t mean that you don’t tell us who you are (because in any case you are not a ghost) Simply ensure your picture is real and always provide basic information about yourself on your profile stating what you are looking for or expecting to find. Don’t add too many jokes as this might lead you into losing potential partners.
Try also not to pour out much information about yourself; save it for that time you meet that right person and then your personality will have to speak for itself. Meanwhile, be a little more ‘anonymous!’
4.Let nature take its course
If by good luck it happens that you find new love online, then don’t force things or rush into them. Take it easy, it’s not the end of the world yet! Don’t display your desperation or by any means show that there is no otherwise for you if not being with him or her.
You might be open yeah, but sending the wrong signal all along, so just be cool and let nature take its course!
Now you know what to do the next time you log in to that dating site, wish you luck in your search!
