Online dating is something unimaginable. Relationships and sex have never been so affordable before. All you need is to download the application or register on a dating site, find a suitable girl or a guy, and start a conversation. All this is convenient and pleasant. You can do this at home, in transport, or at your cousin’s birthday party.
However, in reality, you need to put a little more effort to succeed. If everything were so simple, we would live in a completely different world – the world of happiness and goodness, where literally everyone has that special someone and regular sex.
In our article, you will find a few lifehacks which will help you become better at online dating.
First Key to Success: Your Main Profile Picture
People who are just starting to use dating apps and other similar products make a common mistake: they think that the main key to success is how you write the first message to your potential girlfriend or boyfriend. Yes, this is really important, but it is not a number one priority. What really matters is your main profile picture. This is what the person on the other side of the screen sees first. The impression your photo makes depends on whether he or she wants to exchange messages with you at all.
If you do not understand why this is the case, imagine yourself in the place of a woman you want to meet. She gets dozens of messages a day from the same guys like you. Sooner or later, she will stop reading them, and then, the main criterion for choosing a candidate she wants to pay attention to will be exactly the main profile picture.
It must be really good. Let it be the best photo in your collection. You should look attractive and reliable. Men, who prefer to demonstrate their press in photos, rarely succeed. It is a fact. The photo should reflect your personality, and then you can succeed.
Second Key to Success: Your Bio
In fact, the most important is not the bio content itself (it sounds paradoxical, but it really is) but the manner in which it is written. You do not need to write a huge essay and retell all the changes in your own life. No need to exaggerate the drama and write too fancy syllable. All this is lies which immediately catch the eye. Girls (especially Russian girls) immediately notice this, and they absolutely do not want to communicate with such a subject. You do not make a CV for an employer – you want to make it clear to your potential partner that it will be fun and interesting with you. Keep it in mind.
In fact, sincerity is the trump card up your sleeve. Most people avoid sincerity and try to seem like anyone but not themselves. We insist: be sincere from the start. Your main passion in life is collecting insects? Tell about it in your bio. The best scenario for a Saturday evening for you is a PlayStation, pizza, and a small group of friends (or just one girl)? Tell the world about it. This way you get a lot and lose nothing. After all, there will be no fear to get caught lying because you are sincere from start to finish. This position greatly affects your behavior. Sincerity attracts other people.
Third Key to Success: Try to Get That First Date
The main task of online dating is that two lonely hearts finally meet in real life. Do not forget about it and do not turn your online dating experience into a complete waste of time.
All you need is to build a trusting relationship with another person. Constantly maintain an interesting and sincere dialogue. And then suggest moving from chatting via an app or website to a more personal space – for example, to one of the instant messengers that you both have. Or add each other to friends list on Facebook – this guarantees the development of a more trusting relationship between you.
