It is very possible to get so caught up in the moment when you’re online dating that you forget to pay attention to the quality of your own experience and the experience your behaviour offers to others. These little online dating mistakes are almost unnoticeable and happen with both – men and women. Since these mistakes are tiny it isn’t too difficult to eradicate them. Let’s have a look and see if some of these are familiar to you.
1. Grammar Mistakes
We have emphasized this point before that with online dating first impression is everything. By first impression in this field we mean the grammar. This is excusable if English isn’t your native language. For example Ukrainian women with little language practice can be excused if the make mistakes, but your end needs to be good. You are not going to charm anyone with : “Hw r u doin’?”
2. The Famous “How are you?” Cliché
It may sound counter-intuitive but this question isn’t a great conversation starter. Think about it. How would you answer this question? Most likely with a simple: “I’m pretty great, and you?”. She will answer in a similar way and then what? We recommend that you introduce yourself instead of using this cliché. You can talk about mutual interests you’ve notices that you two have. Much better, isn’t it?
3. There is no “I” in team
It is easy to think that you need to share as much about yourself as you can and therefore you may not give the other person a chance to talk about themselves. That is a really big turn off. This doesn’t work in real life relationships and also not in online dating.
4. Give them room to breathe
Let’s say you came across a profile on your dating site. This person seems to have everything you’re looking for in a partner. You send them a message. You see no answer after an hour. So you send another one and before you know it you’ve sent them one too many. Do you see what we mean? Knock it off before you come across resembling a stalker.
5. Broken heart issues
This is an ego problem most people have. It makes sense to have negative feelings when someone doesn’t reply to you. It is a very natural reaction but you need to accept this about online dating – it may be a hit or a miss. Just keep going. There is someone out there for everyone.
