Are there any online dating tips? Let’s explore.

Online dating is tricky and fun, sometimes stressful too. Whether you are an introvert or a charming extrovert personality, online dating is not so easy. As a beginner, online dating is a foggy and mysterious realm. So, to ease your navigation, here are my few valuable dating tips for beginners. In addition, I have tried to lay out some specific rules from here and there for digital dating, some of which are from my personal dating experience.

There are no hard and fast guidelines for online dating. Something works out for you a few times, a few times, they do not. But these tips will help you make your dating time amazing and fun. But always keep in mind that online dating is not a necessary evil. These online apps and sites are digital platforms made for you to be used at your convenience and not the other way around.

  1. The topmost thing in an online app dating scenario is to upload the best picture of you. Don’t be moderate! By best picture, I mean the picture of you that brings a smile and confidence to your face. Do some show-off and show your smile. Who says you can’t use bathroom selfies. Create your profile as who you are; you don’t need to go overboard to present yourself.

2. Before entering the online dating scene, make your priorities clear. What are you looking for in online dating? Commitment, a casual fling, or just hookups. Why are you here?

Are you a single parent looking for a partner or somebody to have fun with?

3. Choose your dating app wisely; only pay if the site has users as per your interest and age.

It does not matter if you are young and experimenting or in your golden years, looking for someone to spend the rest of your life with. There is something for everyone.

4. Start with a free trial first, and if it looks worthy, only then spend your money on the paid features for these dating apps.

5. Always respect the person you are going to find. It’s always good to be respectful and flirty but not to act lewd in starting the conversations. The “Be Courteous” rule applies to all genders, not only men.

6. Keep an open mind. Try to be flexible with your expectations. If you are looking for a partner, then don’t fixate your mind upon the specifics. Cut the slack off your type crap, don’t only look for masculine bodies and blond hairs. Try to see the innocence and smile on your face.

7. Do your research. Again, I am not saying act like a stalker, but try to find them on digital platforms.

8. Never show weirdness towards cultural differences.

9. Don’t ignore regular folks while browsing “Model headshots.”

10. Don’t ruin your chance of success by hiding your actual traits and interests.

11. Limit your time on dating apps. Don’t overconsume it.

12. Being a lady doesn’t mean you can’t start the conversation first. Don’t play by the stereotypical rules.

13. For your own safety before the first meeting, chat over the phone and have at least one video call.

14. Don’t accept carpooling on your first date. Instead, use your vehicle or public transportation.

15. Always meet in a public place.

16. Stay sober and drop a pin to let a friend know where you are.

Some best lines to break the ice on the first date. Online dating tips for effective communication .

  • What are your favorite travel destinations?
  • Netflix or Amazon Prime? I am into Netflix.
  • Are you an early bird or a night owl?
  • Are you a cat or a dog person?
  • To break the silence at end of date – How’s the rest of your workweek looking? Do you have any fun weekend plans?

How to be comfortable , if you are an introvert? A few specific tips for all of my introvert readers.

Dating advice for an introvert or ambivert.

  1. Don’t pressurize yourself into being perfect or feel inferior due to your communication skills.

2. Try to be comfortable with your look. Wear something comfy and familiar.

3. I would say ditch the apps and dating if you are stressing out. This is supposed to be fun. Please remember this is not a job interview.

4. Never accept group dating requests if you are an introvert. Trust me; It can only shake your confidence and waste your valuable time.

5. Try to meet at a familiar place or restaurant to lessen the level of the anxiety of the unknown.

6. It is ok if you are not a good conversationalist, But tell them about your nature so they don’t feel rude or disinterested. You are who you are, But also give them a chance to express themself to make things work fully.

The important thing is that the dating apps are made to help people meet and make it easy to have fun, converse, have a good time in general. But if it affects your personal life, No one will force you into using these apps.
