Online Dating is not as easy and fun as it sounds. If you also feel like your search for “the perfect one” is not a piece of cake, then this is for you. When it comes to online dating, we are all sailing in the same boat. You will match with several people, you will make friends with half of them, and you will end up blocking many too, it is all a part of online dating.
To make the online dating experience and to make online dating applications work better for you, here are a few things you can keep in mind!
- Not all Online Dating Apps are Good: When it comes to choosing the right app, you have to be selective. You cannot download online dating applications randomly and expect the results to be just the way you imagined. Some apps are exclusively made for hook-ups, some let you find partners based on your caste or your religion, some of them are made in such a way that they connect you with the help of your shared interests and lifestyle. The point being, choose your dating application according to your own needs.
- Honesty is the Key: When connecting on online dating apps, people often try to cover their experiences, or they casually lie about certain things, which is never a good idea. It would help if you always were true to the person you are talking to as the image that you create in front of them is what connects them to you. What if someone loves dogs and to make them like you, you say that you love dogs too, whereas you hate them. In this case, the person might have connected to you because of your shared interests, which is not true, and that will not help your relationship to work out at later stages.
- Choose a Photograph, which you Feel is your Best Shot: Do not use any editing features; your photograph should highlight your actual physical appearance and looks. A Photograph is what makes the first impression on an online dating application, based on which people decide whether they want to talk to someone or not, so your photograph should be one that is appealing yet showing off your true self.
- Write a Catchy Bio: Get creative with your bios. Say a lot using minimum words. Do not write paragraphs as nobody would be interested in reading them. Try to write your bio in such a way that you tell many intriguing things about yourself using very few words. Include important things and try to add a little about the kind of person you are looking for. Do not write too much.
- Have an Open Mind: Do not go on a hunt for your perfect fit. Someone can have a lot of achievements, but they might not match your interests. You can never find everything in one person. Everyone has flaws. So, keep an open mind and stick to the people who match with your vibe. If you have a rigid mindset, you may never find a suitable partner. Keep an eye for the people your brain attracts to and do not back out just because there was a mismatch of small and unnecessary detail.
Try and keep these tips in mind, next time you step a foot in the world of online dating. They will stay with you for a long time.
