Online Dating: Dos and Don’ts for Women

There are lots of different women who have used online dating services, and while some of them have found their life partners, the others still keep looking for the right person. Maybe it just takes a long time for them, but another possible reason for that is the absence of knowledge of dos and don’ts of online dating.

What You Should Do

Be Honest

It is related to virtually everything starting from filling out your profile to sending messages. If you are asked about something, give the true information. However, if there is something that you are not ready to share with the other person, just refuse politely in providing this information.

Post Realistic Photos

You want to choose a nice photo, but it should represent you, not someone else. Choose a recent picture of you, but avoid posting selfies, half-dressed pictures, photos with other people, etc. It is also recommended to post several pictures. This is how you can avoid men asking you for sending more.

Show Your Uniqueness

You should demonstrate something unique about you. If you have no idea what it is, you can check out profiles of other women and try to choose something that distinguishes you from them. It may take some time to figure out what it is, but, eventually, you will succeed.

Reply to Messages on Time

You do not need to communicate with men who cause no interest in you, but if you wish to continue a conversation with a certain man, you should reply time to time. Of course, you do not want to be distracted from your work or other important stuff, but answering at least once a day should be fine. If the other person requires too much attention, explain the situation politely.

What You Should Not Do

Do Not Be Rube or Aggressive

This is the type of behavior that never works in a good way, and that is why you should avoid it. Be polite and friendly, and if someone bothers you, you can just block them. It is also important to avoid being nasty, and if someone does not reply to your emails, just move on.

Do Not Act Like a Queen

It is important to have self-confidence, but you should not behave yourself like you do a favor to a man by chatting with him. You should avoid making a long list of requirements to men and writing unpleasant comments about him or something related to his life.

Do Not Rush

It takes some time to establish trustful relationships before going on a date. You should not agree to go out with a guy whom you barely know. Not only it is unsafe, but this will likely add to the list of your awkward dates. It is also recommended to avoid giving your personal information such as phone number and address if you are not sure if you are communicating with a man who is worth your trust.
