Be a pro at the online dating game. Check out the most common blunders everyone makes when dating online.
Be Yourself Already
Easier said than done, right? But here is the thing; when it comes to online dating, you cannot keep on boasting about things on your profile. If you find a match, you are bound to meet that person in the flesh. Not that you will end up embarrassing yourself or disappointing the person in front of you; it’s just that you may hit it off as the perfect couple, but if you are not portraying your true self, you might just end up being bored with the other person. You will not be able to have honest conversations, etc. And soon, that perfect match will have you feeling hollow inside. So be yourself; there is someone ready to fall for that spark of yours.
Don’t Take Their Word for It
The tone of the profile says a lot more than what the exact words are saying. I keep kicking myself for never trusting my instincts and it is time that all of us give them the attention they deserve (this is where the ‘I am so stupid’ thoughts come from in the end). Come on, we are old enough and smart enough, and if something feels like it is out of line, it probably is! Four words: Listen To Your Brain. Your heart is a sucker for cutie pies who just might not be the perfect match for you.
There Is No Such Thing as Knight in Custom-Made-Tinfoil-Armor
Conditioning has us believing that there is someone out there, tailor made for us. Their tastes, personality, likes, and dislikes are all in sync with us. *beep* you just lost at life before you even started dating. Do not allow the thought for the perfect guy or a girl consume you. I’ll let you in on a little secret: opposites attract. I can safely say that some of my most exciting dates were with people who were my polar opposites, personality wise.
Now that you are fully stocked on the knowledge of what to steer clear of, sign up and find your own match. If you know any more of the dating mistake pointers, share them in the comments below.
