If you are constantly rushed into seeing your match instead of taking the time out to realize what kind of person they truly are, you’re going to find yourself with a long list of duds. Now instead of a person with potential, they become yet another disappointment.
Do you feel like maybe if you had waited a day or more to meet, that things might have gone better? Nobody is going to look at their best when they are only given twenty minutes to get ready for their first date. And maybe the best impression to give, is to try not getting in your pants within the first fifteen minutes. Maybe these men could have been connections, but you’ll never know if you continue to rush into dates, especially ones that are poor planned or lazy (such as ‘netflix and chill’).
Let’s face it, dating etiquette ain’t what it used to be and anyone who’s ever been properly courted and then tried to find a decent date on Match, Tinder or any other dating site will tell you that finding dating quality on the Internet can be somewhat tricky. The quick pace of social media, along with the new millennium sense of entitlement and the connection immediacy of cell phone applications, has led to the disappearance of the old-fashioned art of courtship, but it deserves its place in the modern dating world.
It seems like more and more guys are skipping first dates and are moving onto first kisses and first-night slumber parties instead. On the other side of the coin, many women seem like they’re dating for dollars or dating for free dinners instead of genuinely searching for the right dude. The result of all of this bad dating etiquette shakes down to a lot of nights you’d rather forget, a slew of non-dates and a whole lot of dating disasters.
Friends, it doesn’t have to be this way and Internet dating doesn’t have to be dismal. If you’ve got the matches coming in you’ve already got the dating game half-aced. All you need now is a little online courtship crafting and that’s what I am here for. Try giving the 10 tips below a try and see where your dating life goes
10. Keep Your Private Digits Private
There’s no need to share digits right away, especially not after the first few messages! Many apps allow you to text within the app, or within the dating forum for free and it is much more secure. After all, what’s the point of using a dating app if you’re going to share your personal information so easily? There’s no need and no rush and if someone gives you a hard time about it, it’s just a great way to weed out some losers. The best way to figure out if the photo and profile on the other side of town seems like a real person is to share conversation with them first, and there is no reason it has to be over your actual number. If you’re the type who has to try and meet your Tinder flame immediately, I can’t stop you, even if I disagree. But make sure you are always trying to keep the texting either in the app, or in a way that makes you feel safe. At least until you know that random person from online is worthy of those digits.
