Dating fun made online
Most of the advice for online dating focuses on how to find and get a partner, which seems like the right focus – get it over and done with ASAP, right?
But as I followed that advice and started working on my profile and contacting people, I realized that for me, the bigger problem was preventing myself from getting so discouraged that I gave up dating entirely.
I cannot overemphasize the importance of getting professional high-quality photos.
If you’re not really into it, you’ll resent the time and emotional energy you put into it, and that will put you in a bad mood.
(You’ll also waste the time and effort of the people who respond to you, but I encourage you to think about being kind to yourself first.) How do you tell if you are ready to date?
I know my better photos weren’t misleading because my dates also gave me a lot of compliments about how much I looked like my photos, and I started getting asked on second dates.
If you are thinking, “But I want someone who is attracted to me for my personality and mind,” I hear you.
