With technology growing and everything becoming a lot more digital, dating has also grown into that. People who have never met before are now connecting and dating online. How is this even possible you ask? Love. Virtual love.
Just before we get into the why and how it’s important to remember that online dating is just like real life dating. How you talk, treat and care for your partner should be the same. It’s as good it gets.
How to meet people for online dating?
Meeting people you may be interested in lately is very easy. You no longer need to only subscribe to dating apps and dating websites. People are connecting via Instagram dm’s, Twitter and Facebook messenger and a lot more neutral places. Although Facebook has its own dating platform, Facebook dating, a lot more relationships have been formed on their regular social platform.
How to start online dating?
Just like dating in real life, dating online needs to come with feelings. You’ve got to have some genuine interest and liking for this social media person. There are a lot of attractive people on social media and if you like every second person you see, maybe you should hold off on the dating part of life.
It is key to not treat approaching like you would in person. Remember this person also sees tons of attractive people on the very same platform, so you’ve got to form a bond of some sort. Whether it’s liking each other’s content or plainly just pressing like on each picture while leaving a cute comment. But you don’t want to be too forward. Keep it cool.
Online dating tips
There are quite a number of do’s and dont’s when it comes to dating. The do part I covered in the beginning when I said to treat the relationship just as you would one in real life. Same emotions and same actions (just a little limited). But here’s a list of what not to do:
What not to do while dating online
- No unsolicited naked pictures
- Don’t love bomb too early, take it slow
- Don’t try to be someone you’re not (also applies to catfishing)
Online dating sites
If you don’t have any social networking sites and prefer to go on dating sites where your intention is loud and very clear, here are a few dating sites that we recommend that will definitely help you in your quest for love.
Our thoughts on online dating
We are very much pro dating and any way the helps you find the one for you is what we are hear for. When it comes to online dating though one needs to be careful. There are a number of fake pages looking to take from people any little they can give. Don’t seem to eager and take people for who they are. Be slow and still receptive to genuine feelings and connections.
