Online dating is a fun, easy and efficient way to meet women. There used to be a stigma attached to meeting someone on the internet but in this day and age it’s one of the most practical ways to find someone you can really connect with.
If you are interested in meeting a great girl online then be sure to follow three simple rules: Be realistic, be cautious, be honest. Don’t believe everything you see or trust everyone you speak to and be sure not to lie about your own appearance or other traits. Otherwise, internet dating can be disappointing… or even dangerous.
1. Be Realistic
Don’t expect to jump on the internet and find your new wife in the next week. Just as with more traditional dating these things take time and you should take things slow.
A great woman is worth waiting for. Also, be realistic about the types of women you e-mail and chat with as well as end up meeting. If her profile isn’t exactly what you are looking for (i.e. she likes cats and you are more of a dog person) but you like other things about her then give it a shot.
On the other side of this same coin, if she seems too good to be true then she might be. If her bikini body looks better than a Kardashian’s then you may need to be a little bit cautious… but we will talk more about that later.
Just remember: the beauty of online dating is the ease with which you can meet and chat with many women at once. So don’t get let down if things don’t work out right away. Just keep trying.
2. Be Cautious
There are dishonest people out there looking to con, steal, cheat or hurt innocent and well-intended people. Be careful about who you speak with, how much information you give them and when and where you meet if you do choose to meet up.
Never give too much personal information immediately and always meet in a well-lit public place. It isn’t paranoia to be careful. It is the only smart thing to do. It is a very serious issue and should not be taken lightly. Your life could hang in the balance.
3. Be Honest
Don’t lie, fib or fabricate. Be upfront, open and totally real. Posting pictures of someone else or of yourself 10 years ago will only lead to awkwardness and disappointment later. If the lady you are speaking to doesn’t like the REAL you, then she obviously isn’t the girl of your dreams.
That’s OK. With online dating you have access to thousands of girls and there is someone out there who will be excited about you just the way you are.
If you follow these three tips you will have no trouble finding love online. There are lots of great ladies out there and with the busy schedules that people keep these days it can be very difficult to meet someone. Internet dating is a great way to meet awesome people. Just be patient, be yourself and, above all, be careful.
