On-Line Dating - Don'ts For Women

Jul 25, 2008
On-Line dating can be a very effective way to meet quality men. However there are a few "rules" that women should take heed to if they don't want to turn off a potential mate, especially one they are interested in.

You have chosen an online site and you have joined it. Congratulate yourself for taking this important step. You have chosen a picture and written a inviting profile. When you get callers or writers, spare all the gory details of your life when first begin corresponding with them. Be interesting but don't overload them with your all your life's up and downs. Please don't tell them how many times you have been dumped or dumped other guys in your life.

After seeing you profile and picture a guy emails you. His email is short, and he asks you a few questions in it about your parents. Fo example, don't write him back and tell him you have been estranged from your parents for the last 20 years, and have no desire to see them or talk to them. Even if this is true, this is not what he needs to know, on the first or even second email. Answer his questions and then ask him the same questions.

Get to know the guy some on the first conversation or email. Ask him about himself. Don't just talk about yourself. Many people believe another person is "a very interesting person", when they are allowed to talk about themselves to that person. Be a good listener, especially in the beginning.

Lying will get you in trouble. If you have children you will not be able to hide them in the closet when you finally meet your online date. If you are skinny, don't say you are curvaious and vice-versa. Any lies you tell on-line will eventually, come to light as you continue to meet more people.

If you are tempted to tell little "white lies" on your profile, when you do meet someone you enjoy, the chances of developing a relationship, or even a friendship might not happen. Don't blow any chances you have of developing a meaningful relationship by saying or writing untruths about yourself.

Maybe you have been alone for a while, or have had some "bad relationships", but still don't make yourself look desperate. Desperation or even appearing to be desperate turns most people off, especially men. You don't want to scare them away, by being clingy or too easy.

These rules are general guidelines which lead to success at on-line dating. They work. I met my husband at an on-line site just by being myself, a good listener, and telling the truth. We have been married for several years now, bought a home together and have adopted twin boys. Your man could be just around the computer for you too.
