Back in the old days, dating was simple then and the internet age came and online dating changes everything. The internet changes the way we interact with people, how we do it and when we do it. In the old days, we can always have excuses not to be present physically but with the social media apps that we have right now, even if we are sick in bed, people can still talk to us everywhere, In terms of relationship this visibility and availability is not good for those trying to mend a broken heart. It will be difficult not to see that person online again when you were that intimate before. Unlike in the real world where you can just move somewhere, it is hard to complete erase connections in the virtual world.
In terms of dating, it is hard when you are always available virtually everywhere as people can already screen you and not chose you for online dating. Then, since the aim of online dating is to select who is the best among the thousands of searches, the searcher must go on numerous online and real-world dating to filter out who will succeed in getting the coveted second date. If one is using multiple dating apps, then this dating schedule should be very exhausting. These too many choices and too many options can also reduce intimacy. Personally, the digital age has not ruined dating but it has changed it. In order to maximize your participation, here are some of the tips:
Know what it is you want to a potential date
Before even signing on to an online dating app, you should know in your heart who is really that person that you are searching for. The dating app can help you with their defining profiles but it is just you who will select which one to give your attention to. Since there are hundreds of choices in just one online dating app, you need to be specific in how to select the one.
Be honest in your profile
In making your profile with your picture on it, make sure that you are highlighting your best profile in your photo but it should reflect your real – life profile and not hide it. It can save a lot of time if you are just thoughtful in making your profile. Be specific in introducing yourself and not use general descriptions.
Don’t be a slave to the numbers game
Be reflective in meeting people online so that you can already screen which one to go on date within the real world. Don’t just collect as many offers as you can as this will discourage you big time. If after an exhausting week and numerous dates, things did not go well for all the dates, you might want to back out.
Balance your virtual and real-world presence
After you have met someone special through the online dating, maybe it is time to take some time off in the virtual world and get to know that person for real. If you are still searching, take time to take a breather from your virtual life and enjoy your finest moments in the real world.
