Decided to take the leap of faith and splash into the world of online dating? Go you! But here are a few things you might want to know before you get started.
1. Whats the cost?
Some sites can be sneaky with what they charge you. It may appear to be free or low cost at first glance, but once you get going….the dosh stacks up! Other sites are fantastic and really are free to join.
2. To trust, or not to trust?
Be careful, there are scammers out there who will try anything to get the best of you. But do remember that not everyone is out to get you, and just be cautious. There are some site that can help you if you aren’t sure, like: http://www.cabalinvestigations.co.nz/2011/08/perils-of-online-dating.html
3. Be prepared to talk about yourself
Many people give vague answers about their personal life, their hobbies and interests, but this should not be the case. The more you express yourself the better people will get to know you. Having a passionate conversation about something you truly love is a great way to get into the rhythm of talking about something in depth, try carry that over to other aspects of your life.
4. Don’t be pushy and don’t get pushed around
It’s OK to say no to a date if you think it’s too soon, and it’s OK to say to someone you don’t think it will work out. Feelings may be hurt, but that is a part of dating, whether you are online or not. Keep your chin up and keep trying, it’s not always bad!
5. Keep your eyes peeled
Ladies and gentleman, the right person is out there somewhere, it is just a matter of finding them.
I wish you all the best in your search and happy loving!!
