Everyone joining online dating websites makes it with all the excitement that comes from having thousands of potential dates to choose from. However, if you have spent time with reading tips related to online dating etiquette, you must have heard so far the recommendation of avoiding talking with more than three persons in the same time, in order to avoid embarrassing situations or making mistakes.
This can online mean one thing: the benefit of having so many options can easily put you in trouble as you will find it difficult to settle for the persons that are most compatible with you.
Therefore, the best thing you can do in order to avoid this challenge would be for you to clearly specify what type of person you are looking for, in your profile, potentially even from its header. Saying something like “I’m a party animal, looking for someone to party with” will most likely spare you from talking with people who are in bed at 9.00 pm sharp. Of course, you can always add details on this chapter as you describe yourself – “I love reading books and I’m hoping to talk with someone who reads more than the daily horoscope.”
In addition to this very important aspect, invest time in carefully reading the profiles of those who approached you or that you intend to approach. Try making yourself a top three and deciding for a time frame in which you should determine whether continuing the conversation is desirable or not. When time is up, make a decision and find another person to fill the top.
Finally yet importantly, for the persons you keep in your radar, make sure your conversations will last for a long time before actually meeting face to face!
