Online Dating Tips
This pandemic will end soon(hopefully) and some of the single people out there may have realized it might be better to share your life with another person than being on your own.
I am offering some tips below – only from my experience, but hey it may help someone!
Set up an attractive profile picture showing your best self! Both men and women…. are visual creatures. Don’t be too wordy in your profile description…both my husband and I agree it gets boring and nobody wants to spend too long reading someone’s profile. Keep it short and sweet
This has to be something you add into your daily habits like exercising. Set a goal everyday to spend about 20 minutes on it and send out quick hellos to people you think might be suitable for you! When this is done….set up a couple of coffee dates each week! (Zoom calls right now) This is important as some people can forever live in a fantasyland of pretending to date but not really be interested in turning it into real life dating! I would suggest deleting these people – if you ask for a coffee date or as I said zoom right now and they put you off – just delete them.
MAKE IT GOAL/PRIORITY:
Prince Charming or your Princess will not just fall into your lap! One has to put effort into meeting someone. Make it a priority in your life and visualize what type of person you want! Write it down – I still have my list of what I wanted ….I wrote this a month before I met my husband. Ask yourself – do I really want someone to share my life with? Am I going to make my search a priority? Or are you comfortable with just yourself and that’s ok too! Be serious about this if it’s what you want in your life. Remember the universe is kind to us and will always give us what we ask for! I remember wanting to meet someone and was on a mission to do so…I wanted my son to see a great relationship and knew another person could add a lot of value to his life as well as mine. I also didn’t want him to get too comfortable with it being just us. Kids grow fast ladies if you are a single mom or dad out there on your own …before you know it kids are off to university/college and you are on your own. The value my husband added to my son’s life has been immeasureable!
Seeing someone in person (ZOOM for now) is important as you will know when they start talking, mannerisms, values and ideas if you have chemistry with them. You can’t move forward without chemistry!
Always be honest with them and yourself! Be genuine and authentic but always the best of who you are! Don’t think you have to fabricate your career or interests as you want the person to know the real you!
SELF CONFIDENCE AND THICK SKIN:
This dating game does come with rejections but keeping going! I am telling you it is worth it. Not everyone is going to like you and you are not going to like everyone and that is ok! Be honest though and don’t string people along. If you weren’t interested in a date and they asked for a second one just politely say I really enjoyed your company but I didn’t feel the chemistry. Most people will be kind about it and bow out.
It is so important to always put your best foot forward…be who you are authentically but be the best of who you are. Engage in conversations and ask questions! Really get to know the person …ask questions about who they are, what they love to do, their family, career, etc… Do their values mesh with yours? Can you see yourself learning and growing together? Similar interests?
As an Image Consultant by trade I have to bring up next topic…FEEL ATTRACTIVE – wear your favourite outfit….something that makes you feel spectacular! This goes for men and women. When you feel attractive you automatically are more confident! If green is your colour or red – wear it! Take some extra grooming time to feel wonderful!
