How to know if you should date someone you meet online?

Posted by & filed under Online Dating.

It seems like online dating sites have become quite popular in the modern world and single women are just as likely to join these sites as single men now. The great advantages of using this kind of site include the fact that they are totally free dating sites for the most part and you can end up finding someone interesting that actually shares the same beliefs and hobbies that you have. In this article we are going to be talking about the things you need to consider before you actually decide to go on a real date with someone you met online. With so many free online dating sites, it can be very easy to interact with a large number of people, but not all of them will meet the requirements to go on a real date with you. Before we go even further, we would like to mention that this article is meant for the local singles that are looking for a serious relationship and not for a casual meetup with someone. Even when you are a young person, you might be interested in meaningful long lasting relationships and this advice is going to be quite useful to you. Do they have similar ways of thinking? There is no point in dating someone who has extremely different ways of thinking from you. There is nothing wrong with some differences, but when there are too many disagreements in the way you see life and the kind of views you have in general, this is not likely going to be a very good relationship that will grow strong fast. Are your political views the same as theirs? Politics should not be a serious reason for couples to argue, but you should always look out for people that takes politics too seriously. It doesn’t matter if they are right wingers or left wingers. The issue here is that a person that is too passionate about politics is always going to be touchy about the subject, so unless you share that same passion for a specific political movement, we suggest you stay away from people who take this subject to heart. Do you share the same religion? Unlike politics, religious beliefs can be an even bigger issue even if neither person is too passionate about it. The problem is that you both might disagree about this in some situations if you decide to take things to the next level. Do keep in mind that this is the kind of advice that is mean for people who want to have serious relationships, so if you want to eventually start a family with someone, it would be better if you have religious beliefs that are compatible enough and the best way to ensure that you will have a harmonious relationship is to avoid getting involved with someone who takes their religion too seriously and is not even able to start a debate about other religions.

One question all people – single and taken alike – ask themselves is: how to know if my current partner or date has a long-term potential? Online dating sites are a great place to meet potential date candidates, but how to actually tell if they’re going to stick around? Take a look at these warning signs and be prepared: 1.   Share too much, too soon When you first meet someone, you don’t tell them everything about yourself, do you? Beware of people, who are too eager to share personal or sensitive information. Things such as your cell phone, email address or living address are things you shouldn’t give out, before you’ve exchanged at least five or six meaningful messages… or, you know, actually met the other person face-to-face. 2.   Excessive flattery Of course, it’s always nice, when someone tells you you’re gorgeous or sexy. But excessive flattery, especially when limited only to your looks, is always a warning sign. This could mean that your potential date is either shallow, or simply interested in what your body can give them. On the contrary, if your potential date takes the time to think of creative compliments or focus on your personal qualities, that’s a definite sign that they’re interested in you – and have a long-term dating potential. 3.   Ex-talk When it comes to talking about one’s exes, both too much and not at all are undesirable options. If your potential date talks about their ex, broken hearts or emotional traumas, this usually means they haven’t gotten over their previous relationship. On the other hand, you should also be careful, if they don’t mention exes at all – is it, because they haven’t had previous relationships and if that’s so, why? Too much or no ex-talk at all could be a sign that your potential date is selfish, emotionally available… or not exactly single.

Many couples will one day end their relationship, but not due to lack of chemistry or commitment, but due to lack of excitement. Many relationship experts claim that as the flames of attraction and initial excitement begin to cool, that is when relationships most often become strained, eventually reaching a breaking point. We have 5 tidbits of relationship advice to help you keep things exciting for you and your partner. Here is some helpful tips, so you can avoid the rut. Avoid a Routine: One reason that couples quickly become bored is due to falling into a particular routine. If you have spent the last three Fridays cuddled up on the couch watching Netflix, switch it up and go to the park or something else instead. Make your dates less predictable and keep your partner on their toes in order to keep them excited about seeing you. Be Spontaneous: You don’t always have to wait for a special occasion in order to do something special for your partner. Instead of just letting them know how much you appreciate them on their birthday, holidays, and your anniversaries, pick another day to spoil them. This doesn’t have to be something expensive or elaborate, just a touching way to display your feeling for your partner. Try Something New: Variety is the spice of life and new experiences make life that much more enjoyable. Set up dates where you try something completely new together like rock climbing, horseback riding, or exploring the quiet countryside. Whether it is a new restaurant or a new activity, having a shared unfamiliar experience will help the two of you bond more closely. Plus, you may find a new favorite thing to do together along the way. Send flirty messages: Make sure that your significant other always has you on their mind when you two are apart with flirty text messages, voicemails, or emails. Surprising your significant other with an unexpected flirty message will make their day and make them that much more excited to see you. Knowing that you are thinking of him or her will give your partner a huge confidence boost and make them feel more secure in your relationship. Go At Your Own Pace: You and your partner may be feeling outside pressure from friends and family to take your relationship to a particular level before you are ready. Instead of caving to the pressure, let your partner know that you want to wait until you both, and just you both, are ready to take your relationship to the next level. Moving too quickly can make people feel trapped in the relationship and more likely to end it prematurely than if they had waited until the right time. By avoiding a routine and being spontaneous, you are making each time that you are together feel more like an experience rather than an obligation. Give your partner a reason to look forward to seeing you each time that you are together. Dating is about enjoying each […]

Dating Advice Everyone Should Know

Posted by & filed under Dating Websites, Local Singles.

Dating Advice Everyone Should Know With online dating, speed dating, and apps like Tinder changing the face of dating, many of the old adages about relationships no longer apply. Of course, many still do. How do you know what advice to follow and what to dump? Here is modern relationship advice every person should know, especially before jumping into the online dating pool with those who are perhaps more experienced with the platform and with playing the field: 1. Chemistry still matters. You can have every checkbox in common, you can have a 99% match and love all the same food, movies, and music—but if the “spark” isn’t there, the relationship isn’t going to work. The “spark” is a much-debated aspect of relationships, but it’s hard to argue with the fact that two people who look great on paper don’t always work out. If you’re not feeling it in the early stages of your relationship, it won’t matter how well your interests, hobbies, and work schedules align. You might be better just being friends.  2.  Don’t expect the other person to pay. While many women still prefer the guy to make the first move and actually initiate a date, polls have shown that nearly half of women are willing to pick up the check at the end of a dinner date. However, tradition states that he or she who asks pays for the meal, since the asker will also be planning the evening. In most situations, it’s relatively safe to assume that the person who asks will be paying, but there’s nothing worse than having to dine and dash because your date turned out to be a jerk who assumed you’d be footing the bill. Just take your wallet, just in case.  3.  Aim for fun over fancy. This is some of the best relationship advice my grandmother ever gave me: you won’t always be able to afford fancy, so it’s much better to just have fun. An expensive, intimate restaurant can be fun, but so is a picnic in the park with sandwiches you bought at the deli. The goal of a date should be to get to know each other, and that might not be possible if you’re nervous about spilling a $20 glass of wine on a $100 tablecloth. Online dating—and dating in general—can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. Follow these tips to keep things simple!

Relationship advice- Ways to make guys take you out

Posted by & filed under Dating Websites.

persons-731182_640

Dating men is not a cumbersome task today, thanks to the many dating websites available to make things easier, especially for single women. But making the right kind of guy ask you out is the task that can be termed difficult. When you have zeroed in on a guy you like and would like to go out with him let him know you are interested. Some of the guys are introverted and they do make the first move unless they get to see some kind of encouragement from the lady. There are many ways by which you can make your interest known to him. Check out this relationship advice that actually works. When you are in a group, try arranging a time when both of you can be alone for a few moments. He might be intimidated by the group to approach you and might be waiting for this opportunity to be alone with you to express his desire to ask you out. You need to use the right body language and gestures to let him know that you like him. Look him in the eye and not elsewhere or do not cross your arms when he is making conversation with you. This will make you appear disinterested in him. Learn about his interests and try to be a part of them. It might be difficult initially if you do not share the same interests but if you like the guy enough, you will slowly develop interest too just for the fact that you will be able to spend time with him. Watch a sports match with him or go to a restaurant that serves food of his choice. Try to enlist his help for any household chores that needs a man’s hand. You will learn a lot about his domestic nature and at the same time you will enjoy handling the chore together as you can spend quality time in the comfortable surroundings of your home. Appearances matter all the time. Looking good leaves you feeling confident and the guy desirous of showing you off! But dress right, do not overdo on the makeup. Wear perfume always. Avoid going to noisy places where talking to each other is next to impossible. Plan outings for being together in more sedate environments like small parties and such other events that give you lot of opportunities to talk and get to know each other well. Cultivate the art of listening. It pays to listen and observe rather than doing all the talking yourself. When you chatter, it not only puts the guy off, you also lose out on learning about him. Being demure is a trait liked by all men even if we are in an age of forward thinking and gender equality. Also let your smile spread, it enhances not just your looks but creates a generally happy atmosphere for both of you to be in. All these steps go a long way in keeping the attraction between you strong and […]

Are you tired of working hard to met girls only to have it fizzle out once you start texting. You put in a lot of effort just to get her number so it can be discouraging once it falls apart. There are a lot of questions that most guys have. When should you text? What should you say? How long should you wait to reply? Texting girls really is a very important life skill. It can mean the difference between landing dates with great girls or spending your Saturday nights at home in front of the TV.  In all truth, this is such a big subject that we couldn’t possible cover all of it in just one blog post. So we’re going to give you a few quick highlights on what you should be doing. We’ll follow up in a few months with more info. 1-  When you get her number When you meet the girl and she gives you her number, say “I’ll text you right now so you have my info in your phone”. Some guys discourage this, but it’s a very smart move. If you text her right on the spot it keeps her from giving you a fake phone number. Second, you can start to establish some repor via text message right there. Maybe send her some short funny message like, “hey it’s Alex… The tall, funny guy you were hitting on at Starbucks“.  2- When to text Attractive girls are usually in big demand and typically won’t respond to text unless they know who it is. On top of that, very attractive girls get hit on a lot and often give there number out to possible several guys over the course of a weekend. If you don’t send this initial text then wait 3 days to get in touch, you could be running the risk of her saying “who is this”?  If you just met the girl, be sure to text in the fist 24 hours. I know there is a common belief among guys that you should wait 3 days but this is a very bad idea. If the girls is very attractive, she likely has several other guys in hot pursuit. It is very important not to seem overly eager or desperate but equally important not to wait so long that she forgets who you are. Also, the more time that passes, the more emotional momentum you’ll loose. So how do you keep from seeming to eager? That brings us to step 3. 3- Keep it Fun And Light Everything you’ve ever seen regarding relationships in a TV show or movie is wrong.  Romantic comedy have lied to you. They have lead men to believe that if a girl seems disinterred, that means they should try harder. Wrong. Being a “try-hard” is very very bad. It’s like kryptonite to women. So is being overly eager, a “nice guy”, insecure, needy or desperate. These are all guaranteed instant ways to repeal women.  Only the […]

10 Signs He’s Not That Into You

Posted by & filed under Relationship Advice.

As females, we should be smart enough to be able to predict whether boys are interested to start a serious relationship with us or not. Females do hate to be tricked, and keep on hoping in something that will lead to nothing, but lies and sadness. Therefore, it is extremely important for us to know the 10 signs below before starting a relationship. 10 Signs to Remember When a person is not that into you, he will try to avoid eye contact and keep distance between himself and you. He will most likely fold his arms towards his chest and does not start any conversation with you. The second sign is when he tries to show disrespect against your values. Do not ever try to start a relationship that shows you this sign, you will be just wasting your time. The next sign is when a person shows a great interest in you and keeps on repeating that he loves you so often and can’t stop calling you at night every day for a few weeks; but after a few weeks, he will stop his moves to attract you since he has won you and he will most likely move on to the next girl. The forth one is a person who is afraid to make commitments. This kind of person is not able to express his feelings towards you. You should never try to push this kind of person to make a commitment with you. A guy who asks you to hang out together but shows up late is another sign that he is not that into you. This also means that you are not an important part of his life. A person who is serious to start a relationship with you will at least try to introduce you to his families and friends after 6 months since the first day you guys started dating. If this is not happening, it might be a sign that he is not that into you. Another sign is when a person started to chat with you a lot, send emails to you often, send messages and wall posts on Facebook everyday, and send lots of love tweets to you, but suddenly he stopped all of those things, maybe blocked you and stopped communicating with you. Enough said, this person has no interest in your anymore. When a person said that he is serious to start a relationship with you, but he never invites you to his place to at least meet with his parents and siblings, he might show you the sign that he has lost his interest to be serious with you. A guy who does not share expenses (dating expenses) and does nothing when you pay for the food or anything else, he might not be interested in you, but in what you have. The last but not the least is when he starts to slow down and “run away” from you slowly but sure. This kind of person, who […]
