Busy schedules often make it difficult to go out and meet new people. Fortunately, dating websites and apps make it easy for people to connect online and see if there is some type of connection. Are you one of the countless people who have matched multiple people online, but never spoke to any of them? Here are some common mistakes people make when dating online or in apps that can easily be corrected to help you find “the right one.”
Don’t write a biography or have a boring profile
People often think that bios are overlooked or that having no bios at all makes you seem mysterious. It is bad practice to think that people are only interested in your photos and it gives potential suitors more reason not to recognize your profile at all. A few words about you and what you are doing is better than nothing. Make an effort to stand out from the competition.
Only have group photos in your profile
Ultimately, people want to see who they potentially have a date with. If all of your photos contain your friends, you will inevitably be compared to the whole group. People also have a very short attention span, so they probably won’t try to spot you in every image.
Your first photo is not of your face
People obviously want to know what you look like right away, so your first photo should always be of your face. Again, people’s attention spans are very short and they are looking to make a decision very quickly.
Too many photos with the opposite sex
If you are a straight man looking for a woman or vice versa, avoid posting too many photos with the opposite sex as it may intimidate people who are interested in you.
Exchanging too many messages before the first date
Chemistry is much easier to understand in person than by texting or texting online. You can’t see the body language through the messages, and more often than not, the conversation runs out of steam before the date even takes place.
Assemble the luggage from the start
It is important to focus on learning knowledge and understanding the positive values that each person brings to the plate. Bringing luggage early on can potentially become overwhelming for the other person and it’s best to talk about it once you’ve determined whether or not you have chemistry with them. You don’t want to scare them.
Using too many dating sites or apps at once
Juggling between apps and the website can be confusing or prevent you from focusing on developing romances. Limiting it to one or two will allow you to stick to what really matters, connecting with potential mates in a meaningful way.
Being too superficial
There are plenty of apps / sites for people looking to stay laid back, but if you’re looking to really hook up with someone on a date, don’t use your profile to list very specific size requirements. / weight / body type. Many apps already allow you to filter by size, but there is nothing to be gained from mentioning these items on your profile.
