Nowadays more and more single men and women are finding their dream soul mate online and the rules of meeting someone the traditional way seem to have been overlooked. When it comes to dating in the tech world, the secret lies by and large in your attitude and approach to dating.
Okay, so you have downloaded your favorite online dating app and created a profile. You're single and ready to mingle. But now what next? If you are serious about finding and dating the right partner, who honestly suits your lifestyle and preferences, then choosing the right dating site or app is crucial for lasting happiness. We've pulled together some strategies to increase the likelihood of interest from potential matches.
Don't try to present a false picture of yourself
In other words, never lie or deceive about your height, age or weight to lure dates, you'll be found out sooner than you realize. Don't pretend to have a more lucrative job than you do or portray a relatively affluent family background. Make sure there is no disconnect between what you are saying and what you are offering the world. If you smoke or drink, be honest about it. If you are jobless, be honest about it. Be humble, calm and don't try too hard to impress.
Never divulge too much personal information
Your profile is being viewed by strangers. They should not be able to identify your specific place of work, home address, salary, or personal information from your profile. Be careful to handpick your photos too. Don't upload a pic of yourself with your better looking sibling, for example. At the same time, make sure it's a good and smiling picture of yours, a picture that lets your personality shine through.
Trust your instincts
When it comes to getting to know other people, if you feel there is something that you just don't find right about the other person's profile, or the content of his/her conversation, or if you feel a bit suspicious that the person that you are talking to is perhaps not being truthful with their answers, or is being pretentious, go with your gut feeling. If you are convinced that there is something overtly wrong about that person, which you just can't tolerate, it's better to end the discussion and move on with life instead of pacifying yourself that after marriage things will eventually change and you'll mend yourself as per the other person's liking.
Make a note of some of these tips and adjust to the changing times. The most important thing to remember is to have fun, be safe and non-judgmental, and enjoy the experience while shaping your success story with your potential partner!
