Internet Dating; Making It Fun Again

por Amie Bruntnell (2018-07-28)

1. Before you start dating online, there are 2 things you need to think about. Firstly, think about the qualities you are looking for in your partner. Secondly, think about the experience you are looking for. When reflecting on these 2 things, try to do it on your own, without accepting advice from anyone. Many people are full of advice about what you want, what type of people are right for you and what experiences are ok to have. The problem is that these peoples opinions more reflect what is right for them, not what is right for you. So if you listen to them, rather than yourself, you are starting your dating process by looking for a date and experience that is suitable for someone else. Listen to yourself, and be true to yourself. Youll be ok. Specific dates and relationships may not work, but this is your journey to have,they are yourmistakesand successes to have, and your experiences tolearn from, laugh and cry about.

2. When you know what type of person and experience you are looking for, go to a dating site which specifically addresses those qualifications. There are many dating sites out there which cater to specifics soyou can dramatically increase your chances of dating success, by starting with a dating chat site which pre-qualifies your potential dates along the lines of the qualities you are looking for. You dont have to go to a general dating site where it is much more hit and miss. We have reviewed dating sites in many different categories to help you with this. Some examples include:Adult Dating Sitesfor an open and steamy experienceAsian Dating Sites if you are attracted to eastern cultureChristian Dating Sites if christian values are important in your partnerGay and Lesbian Dating Sites if you are looking for a same sex partnerJewish Dating Sites if jewish values are important in your partnerSeniors Dating Sites if you are looking for a mature partnerDating Sites for the Tall, for when size mattersDating Wealthy Partners for a more sophisticated experience

3. Always be safe. There is a natural progression with online dating. You start with the dating site, then you swap emails, then phone numbers and then arrange to meet. Your first meeting should be in a public place with lots of people, and maybe some friends in the background somewhere, to keepan eye on things. After that first meeting you are no longer internet dating, so your experience should progress along the same lines as any developing relationship. Never escalate to a stage with someone that you are not yet comfortable with or dont feel safe with. This means dont give your email address or phone number to someone who hasnt won your confidence on the dating site. Following that, dont meet someone who has not made you feel comfortable when communicating by email or phone. Finally, never meet someone privately when they did not make you feel safe in the public meeting. This all sounds like common sense, but it is always harder when you are in the middle of it and getting pressured by the person on the other end, so be strong.

Hopefully that will help with your internet dating experience. Remember, for greater success, keep it simple, specific and safe. Good luck.
