Are you giving off the wrong signals when online dating?Posted on: January 9, 2013 17:06:50
If you're not having much luck in the search for love, it could be because you're sending out the wrong signal to potential new dates.
It can take some time to get used to online dating etiquette and some things might need to be approached slightly differently than when you're in a real-life scenario.
A good place to start is having a look over what you have written in your descriptions about yourself. When adding information, wording needs to be carefully considered to ensure you're not underselling yourself or sending out the wrong vibes about the kind of person you are.
While you might just be looking for companionship or wanting to take things steady, be careful how you put this across online. For many, someone who is 'looking for something casual' or just seeking 'a good time' could set off warning signs that this person isn't the sort to commit or only has a casual fling in mind.
Similarly to your 'about me' section, a picture is one of the most important things you can have on your profile, so picking one that accurately reflects you and your personality is vital. Overly sexy images or snaps of you looking worse for wear on a night out might show you are a fun person to be with, but could attract people who are only after one thing.
Once you have progressed to the next stage and have managed to initiate a conversation with someone online, be aware of your tone and language. Sarcasm can often get lost in the world of cyberspace, so while there is no need to completely remove all humour over emails and texts, it might be worth just making sure that what you're saying isn't likely to be misconstrued.
Lastly, don't get too hung up on the do's and don'ts of playing hard to get. While all the magazines might tell you that replying instantly is the ultimate sin or sending a message with more than 50 words is a massive no-no, messing people around when conversing can make you appear disinterested and standoffish, and as a result, your date could end up turning their attention elsewhere.
