A lot of people jump into online dating and don’t think of how to approach it beforehand. They notice that they aren’t getting the desired results and have no awareness why that may be. In this article, we are going to take a look at what are the most common mistakes people make when dating online and how they affect the positive feedback you would otherwise receive. Do any of these seem familiar to you?
1. Bad Grammar
This point has been emphasized a lot, but some still think that correct grammar isn’t relevant when it comes to writing someone online. Think about it for a second – when dating online, the first impression the ladies get of you is how you write to them. “How u doin’?” is not going to impress anyone. If you aren’t a native English speaker, then you can be forgiven but if you are – there is no excuse.
2. The “How are you?” Cliché
While we recognize that it intuitively sounds like a great idea, it isn’t so. How would you answer if asked this question? Most likely with a simple: “I’m great, and you?”. She will answer the same way. That is if she will answer. A question as cliché as this one probably won’t get you too many responses. Read through the person’s profile and share what you found interesting.
Sharing too much info about yourself and focusing solely on your person is not going to help you get a date. Wanting to impress someone attractive to us makes a lot of sense but don’t forget to ask her questions and put the spotlight on her. Selfishness does not work in real life, and it also doesn’t work online.
Having the right approach to online dating will help you be successful at it. Remember the tips provided here and you should see responses coming in greater numbers soon enough.
