How to Play Safe in the World of Online Dating

Dating websites have become a widely used medium both for people seeking a stable relationship and for those who only look for passenger rolls.

Obviously, linking is not the same as finding a partner. While flirting and having a brief love affair is relatively easy in media such as the Internet, finding a stable partner is more complex, since it requires a lot of prudence, patience and perseverance.

If your goal is to find true love, you must be very good at detecting who does not suit you (immature, aggressive, controlling, self-centered, who do not want to commit, etc.) and to attract whoever you like and be compatible with you. Here are 5 tips that will help you increase your chances of success:

1. Put a good picture on your profile

Your main photo should show the best version of yourself. Therefore, put a recent image, of good quality in which you are smiling and that transmits that you are a kind, pleasant and trustworthy person. Avoid wearing sunglasses, hats or caps that cover your face.

The other photos that you put on the w4m maps that should also be a reflection of your personality. You can use images of your last vacations, practicing some sport, walking through nature, etc.If you are a woman and you are looking for a serious relationship, avoid putting pictures where you appear too sexy, since, without intending it, you can attract men interested only in a passing scroll. If you are a man it is better to avoid showing your naked torso.

2. Complete your profile

You must write a positive presentation about yourself, highlighting your main qualities, your interests and your hobbies. You should also indicate the qualities you want to find in your future partner and the values ​​that are important to you in a relationship.

The text must be well written and without spelling mistakes. Avoid rolling too much and try to use a friendly and optimistic tone. If you are looking for a stable partner do not lie about age, as it is perceived as an indicator of falsehood.

If you are a woman, do not write sentences of the type: “I do not want them to break my heart anymore” or “I’m sick of immature men”. These are phrases that convey a lot of negativity. Keep in mind that incomplete profiles tend to be less attractive for those seeking a serious relationship.

3. Contact with people who live in your locality (or near)

If you do not intend to change your place of residence or do not want to maintain a relationship remotely, it is better to limit your search to people who live in your area or in your surroundings.

A relationship at a distance can be very romantic, but it is also very complicated. Consequently, it is preferable that you do not initiate contact with people who live far away. If you do, you can be trapped in a virtual relationship that never gets consolidated. Also, keep in mind that in these cases the danger of being lied to is much greater.

4. Make an appointment as soon as possible

No matter how much you are attracted by someone’s photos and even though you are excited about everything he says in your messages, you will not know if this person can come to like you until you meet them face to face.

If you have felt comfortable with this person, you can contact her again to see how she responds. If you get long or do not respond to your message, do not be discouraged and, of course, do not insist.

5. Keep a positive attitude

Both men and women get discouraged when they go on a first date and the person they stayed with does not like it at all. It can also happen that after being one or several times with a person you like, the person in question stops responding to your messages without giving any explanation.

Therefore, it is fundamental that, whatever happens, keep a positive attitude. If someone disappears from the map, instead of embittering your life, simply smile while you say: “He (or she) loses it.”
