In today's time where we prefer to send messages to a person sitting in the same room, online dating as well made some space for itself. Online dating can be really fun, exciting and adventurous if you two people are real and do not misuse their virtual presence. In case you want to give it a try, here we give you five important rules which you should keep in mind before starting your romantic online relationship. Read on to find out!
Honesty is the best policy
Undoubtedly! Since two people will judge each other only by their conversations and pictures posted in an online relationship, it is important that you don't lie. Pleasing someone temporarily by saying all good things will have worse consequences later. Hence be real and be YOU while dating someone online.
Do not bring your past to the present
While your present is all happy and taking new turns in your love life, you don't have to drag emotional baggage from your past. Doing this will indicate that you are not prepared for any new relationship and still misses your ex-partner. Thus, strike lively conversations and unfold what this new online dating has to offer!
Make sense from the word go
Initial conversations are really important in an online relationship. Since two people are not present physically, it's your words that matter. The kind of statement you will make, your opinions and comments on different subjects will ultimately reflect your personality. Use good vocabulary (we don't mean fancy words!), fewer emoticons in the beginning, and also raise questions to understand the other person.
Stalk them on social media in advance
It is important to engage in some social media stalking before you start talking to a person. You might come upon their distant families and even a couple of their old flames. Get to know the person in front of you and not a fantasy version you have gleaned from social media platforms.
Be careful at every step
Dating online is sometimes a trap and leads to various cyber crimes as well. In case the person on the other side is asking too much -too many personal questions, your recent pictures, getting into official details -it's an alarming situation. Pay attention and do not go LaLa about your just-started online relationship.
