According to a recent survey done by Date Watchers.com, most people are starting to get comfortable with online dating.
However, some minor mistakes are still what keeps people from meeting the person they so badly deserve.
Forget that stuff about playing hard to get, expecting the man to pay, and never having sex on a first date. “I cook a mean paella and I’ll always try to make you laugh” is good, but “I have a fantastic job and no-one can understand why I’m single” is not.
Today’s rules are a little more user-friendly – but some of them may surprise you. Many dating profiles start with statements like: “I’m no good at this kind of thing”. If you put yourself down, you won’t sound attractively self-effacing. The aim of the online dating game is to catch the eye of someone you have lots in common with.
Still, navigating the world of online dating can definitely be tricky—what kind of message is clever, but not creepy?
