Online Dating Tips For Men To Successfully Score A Date
If you are a first timer or have tried and failed at this previously, these online dating tips are sure to help you maneuver your way in the online dating world.
You may have convinced yourself to try online dating and now you are looking for tips to give you an edge. You’ve certainly come to the right page. There are more people doing this than you might realize, and it can be a minefield. One failed attempt might make you abandon the quest altogether. No need to worry, just follow these online dating tips to make the process a little easier for you.
1. Avoid selfies
Avoid posting dozens of selfies. Just because you feel you look good in a certain angle doesn’t mean you have to capture and post 10 versions of it online. And please stop posting those shirtless photos of yourself. Instead, add some full-sized pictures of you having fun and not those lousy ones at home or in the gym.
2. Don’t post pictures of you with another woman
Remember, women are quite sensitive when it comes to this and they don’t want to see you with other girls. You might think it looks cool, but it’s not helping your cause. So unless it’s your grandma, mom, or niece (winner), stay away from this. If it’s your sister, make sure you note that in the caption.
So what do you post? Try a few pictures with friends. In fact, pictures with friends, great. Pictures with other women, not so great. It makes you real, fun loving, and shows you’re loved by others.
3. Keep a sense of mystery in your profile
Exercise control when it comes to your online profile. It takes away when you reveal too much, so keep it short and sweet, but with enough information so they have a sense of who you are. It can be about your passion or certain likes that will help draw in the right person who shares the same interests. Just pick a few things you want someone to know about you and let’s be honest, they really don’t need to know everything quite just yet.
4. Be creative
When starting a conversation, pick a topic from one of her interests. If she likes movies, talk about your favorite movie as well. If she is into fitness or outdoors, talk about workouts or outdoor activities you also enjoy. Be creative and don’t type the first thing that pops in your head. Be thoughtful of the other person and be the one to break the ice.
5. Don’t put down online dating
Refrain from telling the person you never really liked the idea of online dating but you tried anyway. Let’s not insult the woman of your interest here. You’ve decided to go online so embrace it…it’s not the taboo it once was.
6. Keep your compliments light and decent
If she has great legs, don’t mention it. “Pretty” not “hot”. “Attractive” not “sexy”. It’ll most likely make her feel uncomfortable and screams that your intentions are not for a relationship. There are women who might want or even crave those kinds of compliments, but if you want to be certain, play it safe. Be polite and keep it light.
7. Keep the conversation upbeat
The purpose of online dating is to have a fun and stress-free way to meet someone, so keep it that way. Save the deeper stuff for when you meet in person. When dating online, you want the other person to be excited to actually meet you so avoid heavy issues and serious matters online. There’s enough drama in life as it is and at this stage she doesn’t want to take on yours as well.
8. Be patient
Don’t immediately ask for her number. Good things come to those who wait, even in dating. You don’t want to appear too eager or overwhelm the other person right off the bat. Treat it just like how you would get to know someone on a regular date. Take your time and allow things to happen naturally.
9. Women might lose interest if it takes too long for you to ask her out
You might be good at being patient, but be careful not to drag things on for too long. If you’ve been dating online for quite some time and have been enjoying each other’s company, have the guts to ask her out on an actual date. While online dating may work well for you, it shouldn’t stay online for too long. Having some great conversation online is just your starting point, not the finish line. Get out of the house and take some risk.

These are the most important online dating tips you need to remember. The key is to make her want to know you better by being a bit mysterious, but likable.
