3 Things To Avoid When Online Dating

In these busy times,things have changed drastically in the dating world.  Online dating seems to be the way to go for people looking to meet a partner. So many people are into it. A survey points out that about 40% of U.S. singles are finding their matches through dating online.

It ‘s a good way of meeting people to date because you’re able to sift through many profiles in a short amount of time; you weed out those you’d never think of going out with. With online dating,you can get to know them right away and decide whether you want to continue with them or not. Its a great way to find your soul mate, but how far is it reliable?

Dating sites can be filled with liars,cheaters and con artists. It’s better not to believe everything you see out there.There are certain things you need to be aware of when you are dating someone online. I will list out three most important things you need to be aware of before you jump into the dating game.

1.  Always remember that you are not the only one she is talking to. They might be meeting 10 others at the same time as they are talking to you. If you do click with someone, be prepared to face the fact that there might be many who are looking at the same person’s profile at the same time as you are.

If you think you have a strong connection after meeting and dating several times, talk with her so that a monogamous relation can be established between you. Be ready to accept the fact that she might not choose you. Do not get overly attached to anyone because it will give a lot of pain if they don’t feel the same way.

2.  You must know that there are desperate liars out there. It’s up to you to act wisely and understand when a person is lying and when you should stay away from them. When it comes down to age misrepresentations or relationship status, one must be very careful or you might end up wasting your time.

Many a times, people lie to get people interested. Also,If someone thinks that they might have a fair chance of meeting you in person, they try not to lie about their stats.  It doesn’t make sense to me, since you’re going to find out eventually.

3.  You need to be aware of the fact many people put up fake pictures as their display picture. A good picture can be the difference between getting noticed and getting lost. However,some people take up this idea way too far. They post up misleading pictures that can make you fall into a trap thinking that you have met your dream girl. Face it, not everyone looks good and there is no point in believing that those profile pics are genuine.

One way to avoid this scenario is to look up for profiles with more than one picture. People who only post pictures in which they look flattering could be hiding something. Do ask for a recent picture and if she refuses, then you could actually be looking at a persons childhood pic or someone else’s picture entirely. If you think the pictures are genuine and when you meet her do not be surprised when they do look a little different than what you saw firstly.

There are a lot of advantages to online dating.  And of course, there are cons.  If you find yourself going this route to meet someone, make sure you’re aware and smart about how you portray yourself.  And ask lots of questions to get to know the person, before you meet.  Good luck!
