The rules and online dating
If you are single and just entering the world of internet dating, here are a few suggestions: Finally, dating sites are not panaceas; they are just another way to connect with other people. Push away all the ‘What if I…’ type questions; Remind yourself of the positives. A first date has the potential for future love and happiness. That, I think, is the most important key for finding someone and for a lot of things in life.Go online, sure, but remember to bring your honesty, integrity, values, and principles with you. The first time I began, I was a beginner at it and I was living at home and I didn't have a lot of confidence and it didn't work out.Charm is a good thing if it’s sincere, so watch out for those whose actions speak louder than their words.
Be straight with people and you’ll encourage them to be the same with you.
It doesn’t necessarily mean any of these things, but that’s the perception it can give.
And online dating is all about perception at the beginning.
Whether you were recently hurt or haven’t been in a relationship for a while, you want immediate gratification and compensation for all the pain and heartache of recent years or even decades.
But get a grip and tell yourself there is no shortcut to courtship, things take time, so you must not act impatiently or desperately.
