With the advancement of technology, everything is just as easily accessible to us. You name it, and you get it! Dating today is much easier than it was before the development of dating apps. However, there are certain things you may want to keep in mind before you start dating online:
- Research Well
Dating apps make finding a like-minded person easy. However, they come with their own set of don’ts. Before meeting up with the person, research about them; go through their social media accounts or if you have any mutual friends – ask them for their feedback, and decide for yourself. Don’t think of this as snooping – you are only ensuring that you are genuinely compatible and the other person is in the same relationship headspace as you.
- Share Your Real Pictures
When you browse through profiles, you look for someone authentic as opposed to those dreaded stock pictures people tend to use. Be real and put up your own photos so that it gives a fair idea to the person looking through your profile.
- Don’t Take Rejections Personally
If for some reason you don’t hit it off or decide not to see each other anymore, do not take it personally or go down the self-doubting road. Take rejections with a pinch of salt and have a more positive outlook about it.
- Be Frank And Honest
Honesty is the most significant factor when it comes to choosing online dating or even otherwise. You often don’t have much choice than to trust the person with his/her words or to go with your instincts, and it works both ways! Be clear about what you expect from your match to not complicate things.
- It’s Okay To Be Discreet
You can choose to be discreet about things you are uncomfortable with sharing as long as it doesn’t affect the dynamic between the two of you. It would make it easier if you set boundaries beforehand, and let your match know about what is okay and what is not okay with you, and vice versa. Times of India.
