Online Dating Mistakes to Avoid

Have you ever tried online dating? How did you get on?  Below are some details on online dating mistakes to avoid.

While you search the internet for that special someone…the one of your dreams…your soul-mate…the other half of yourself, you can do a lot of things right. Sadly, you can, also, do a lot of things wrong….things that will guarantee failure and a broken heart. Out in the “real” world, being aggressive, demanding perfection and even little white lies are all ingredients for success. However, those same qualities are killers when you are dating online and off-line, too, for that matter.

There is a big difference between being aggressive or confident and being too aggressive, over-confident, or just plain sleazy or slimy.

If you push too hard for a face-to-face, you will come across as too aggressive…maybe even, scary. Try to remember that you are not trying to close a business deal and keep the relationship progressing at a slow but steady pace. Patience is the key.

Nobody is perfect. We are all flawed in some way or another…and that includes you, as well. If you expect your partner to be absolutely perfect and demand that, you will always be disappointed. Demanding perfectionism in your work is one thing. Demanding perfectionism from a friend, co-worker or a partner you are interested in is not just fine. It won’t happen. Expect flaws and just deal with them. Decide the ones you can live with and those you cannot.

Little white lies and false fronts won’t work. Be honest from the beginning of a relationship. Write your profile. Make it interesting but do not make false statements. The truth will come out eventually anyway. If you say you are a high-flying business person who makes £000’s a year  and you are really an electrician that makes £30,000 per year, you have set yourself up for failure.

Remember…don’t be too aggressive, expect to ever find perfection or put on a false front.

Just be yourself and you will attract the right person.
