There’s no cut and dried method to online dating. In that way it’s very similar to dating in the conventional way. There are things you should and shouldn’t do, of course, and a lot of them are obvious. However, if you’re unfamiliar with online dating, you may not realize all the dos and don’ts. There’s a lot of room for error online, but you’re going to want to improve your chances however you can. So read on over our list of dating tactics to avoid so that you can avoid scaring women away.
Don’t Expose Yourself Immediately
Unless she’s a certain kind of woman, she’s really not going to appreciate her inbox being flooded with nude photos of you the moment she replies to your inquiry. In fact, that tactic is likely to make her take every step she can to block you from ever contacting her again. There’s nothing wrong with being proud of your body and how sexy you think you are; there is something wrong with forcing it all on a woman who hasn’t expressed even the slightest indication that she’s ready to see you naked. So relax and be patient. If she’s genuinely interested in you, chances are she’ll ask for the opportunity later.
Don’t be a Creep
Curiosity is a natural part of liking someone. They interest you so in turn you’re interested in everything about them. There’s a right and a wrong way to handle this curiosity. The right way is to casually ask her some of the things you’re wondering in conversation. The wrong way is to go about researching the questions you have on your own time and then explaining how you did so later. If you’ve had two or three chats online and you’ve hit it off relatively well, it’s not a good idea to immediately check her out on Facebook or Google Plus (especially if she hasn’t invited you to do so). It’s also a bad idea to tell her all the things you noticed about her through social media. In doing so you’re only setting yourself up to look like a creep, which is the exact opposite of what you want to accomplish.
Don’t be Pushy
Just because she signed up for a dating website doesn’t mean she’s going to want the same things you do. Dating is not synonymous with wanting sex. She may just want to find someone she can enter into a long term relationship with. So, pressuring her into racy webcam chats or hitting her up with intimate messages right away is a bad idea. There are websites out there for women that just want sex, and if that’s all you want it might be a good idea to register on one of said websites. If you want to meet a woman, get to know her, and start dating, it pays to be a gentleman. Chances are your patience and respect for her will pay off for you in the end, anyway.
