Online dating has many advantages and I encourage all my clients and single friends to give it a go. It vastly expands your dating pool and allows you to browse from the comfort of your own home. However, it’s important to understand that online dating is very different from conventional dating and requires a different mindset and skills. Most women lacks these and therefore don’t succeed.
Your online dating success is determined before you get online, it isn’t just about your photo, your profile or your dating skills. Those are important but without the right mindset, it is unlikely that you will have a successful dating experience and find the right guy.
So, what does it mean to have the right mindset? It means, knowing what to expect from online dating, be prepared for it and adjust your mindset accordingly. Most people who decide to try online dating, go into it with incorrect assumptions and unrealistic expectations, which are based on conventional dating. Understanding the following three differences between conventional dating and online dating will increase your chance of success many fold.
Understanding the following three online dating tips for women
1. In conventional dating, you have met the man face to face before going on a date, mostly through friends or at work. You know what he looks like and how he talks; you have a sense for who he is and you go out on a date with him because you are interested in him. Online dating is the opposite, you don’t go out with him because you are interested, you go out to find out if you are interested. You are going out with a man you haven’t met before, based on a photo and a profile, he is a stranger with no credibility yet. And meeting a stranger can be far more uncomfortable, which many women struggle with. Instead of fighting it, expect and embrace it and focus on getting to know the man.
2. First dates are very different with online dating. You choose who you go out with based on their profiles and photos, both of which can be deceptive. A man can seem perfect in his profile but turn out to be a dud in real life. Or, a man can seem generic in his profile, then turn out to be a great guy. You need to keep an open mind and remember that a profile and a real human being aren’t the same thing. With practice you will get better at reading between the lines in a man’s profile, something you don’t have to do in conventional dating.
3. In conventional dating you date one man at a time, someone you are interested in and have some chemistry with. In online dating, you will chat with lots of men, meet more men you aren’t interested in, and have more dates that go nowhere. Many women hate this, but this is just another online dating reality that you can adjust your mindset to.
The best way to succeed in online dating is to keep your expectations realistic and your mind open. If you’re looking for online dating tips for women, keep these tips in mind.
