Is online dating the best way to find love

Another advantage of online dating is that when you meet someone in real life, you usually meet them because of their physical appearance. It’s the physical appearance that usually drives these types of meetings and as a result, many of them fizzle out quickly. Online dating, however, allows you to get to know the person internally, their likes and dislikes, their hobbies, their beliefs, and even what they’re looking for in a mate, all before you make that choice to meet them in person. That makes online dating the best way to find love.

Whether being downright honest is the best approach - No LIES

Make sure you resist the urge to emphasize the truth too much as there is really no need to doing so as this could only makes things complicated later. There are plenty of fish in the online dating ocean and the chances of finding someone who’s attracted to the real you is high. So, there is no need to lie or blurt out your darkest secrets.

If at all you have the urge, remember there is always a time for such things. Basically, just keep it real and the last thing you need is to worry about all the LIES you’ve spun when you’re on dates where you have scored. This is a common mistake and do try and ensure that it does not happen to you.

Often, if people are honest with themselves, they tend to know when a breakup is coming and hence are able to prepare themselves emotionally for it. However, there are the rare cases when it comes as a complete surprise, and you need to be able to do all that you can to contain yourself from outbursts. In other words, practice the Three C’s - be Calm, Cool & Collected

What is it that you are looking for in online dating?

There are people out there who are looking just for sex or one night stands and casual dating. These are people to avoid if you are looking for someone who wants to be your life partner. So you must be specific and let people know what you are really after. In other words, if you are not into night club partying or nude camps, then don’t try to impress the other person by saying so. In all likelihood, this will come back and hit you later

When it comes to online dating, there are many sites you can choose from.

Online dating typically starts by subscribing to one of these sites and then setting up your profile. Your profile will be your gateway to finding new online dates. In other words, your profile and photo will show how others will view and respond to you on the site. The profile will usually have a photo of you and a short paragraph describing who you are and what you are all about. This can be the hardest part about online dating, as most people tend to freeze when it comes to describing themselves

Dating is supposed to be fun and it shouldn’t be viewed as a job or hard work. You should be looking for fun and who knows, this could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship with someone, whom you could perhaps end up spending the rest of your life with.
