Everything always seems hard in real life and easy on the internet – that’s just the way people think. And while it can be arduous to search for new partners around town, numerous dating websites take care of this for you online. Of course, this sounds like a dream – you go to a website, start a free trial or pay a fee, create a profile to your liking and wait for people to contact you; nothing can go wrong, right? Actually, this isn’t true, as online dating as a concept isn’t as simple as many people think it is.
For this reason so many folks out there get everything wrong and end up finding nobody interesting, or, even worse, someone completely wrong for them. In this blog we will be writing about the things you should always bear in mind when it comes to online dating. Some of these basic tips and tricks will likely help you find something special, and also keep you away from attracting the wrong kind of attention.
Never use your real name – this is one of the traps that many people fall into, and it’s an amateur, not to mention a potentially dangerous mistake. We are not saying that everyone out there is a maniac and we definitely don’t want to scare you, but the truth is there are some pretty nasty people out there and you should definitely be cautious about what you say and what you write. Another, and this is a far more important reason for not posting your full name and you details, is the fact that, this way, anyone can look you up everywhere and possibly find things about you they didn’t want to know. What we mean by this is that this way people can look up your Facebook and LinkedIn profile, finding out some of the intimate details about you without you telling them all this. In any case, don’t use your real name
Never say too much – Another thing that goes hand-in-hand with this is the rule of never revealing too much. Not only can this attract those wrong people, but will also put the good people off, since it will make you appear as a self-absorbed and needy person.
It is ok to research – Actually, this is imperative, but only after you have gotten in touch with the person of interest. If you are about to set up a date, make sure you ask him or her about their real name, their personal details, and anything else that will help you research them prior to actually meeting them. Never, ever go to see someone you know literally nothing about except for their screen name.
Be specific and be truthful – Like we said, don’t give away your name and don’t talk too much right away, but everything else you write and post should be the truth. After all, you are looking for a partner here, not running away from the CIA.
