Are you a man looking for your potential match online? That’s great and there are some really popular dating sites to find your soulmate from. Is it your first time in the online dating zone? Well, here is a brief on the tips to follow for safe and effective online dating.

Find a reliable site

First thing will be to sign up with a reliable online dating site. Go for site that has been operating for years and is backed by a long list of happy users. Check out the customer testimonials and see the success rate. It’s great if the site offers a free trial offer. This way you can check beforehand whether or not the site will be suitable for you without investing your hard-earned money.

Add a striking and trustworthy bio

Don’t jam your bio with unclear sepia pictures. Rather put some of your best smiling pictures to create a fantastic impression. Write a crisp bio. Include the necessary details and refrain from providing unnecessary information. Try to add a pinch of humor if possible. As per leading relationship advice portal SHALLON ONLINE, do not ever brag about yourself and never lie in your bio.

Don’t be generic

One of the biggest blunders of online dating is to load your crush’s mailbox with lame generic messages. Women are bored of hearing typical generic compliments like- “Oh you are so cute” or “beautiful eyes” and stuff like that. Instead, check out her bio and see if you can find some insights to talk about. For example, say she has given a picture of her relaxing in a beach where you have already been. So, you may start your conversation in reference to that beach only. The bottom-line is you have to start things on a personalized note to stand out.

Never ask for more pictures

You may ask for her pictures if the given pictures on her bio are hazy and blur. But otherwise, you should not ever ask for more pictures at least on the first day of interaction. Such queries will only trigger unwanted misunderstandings.

Respect her limits

Each person is different and has or her own set limits. Your crush will have her own as well. Never force her to bend them for you at least on the initial phase of dating. You may feel like talking to her over the phone after the first chat. But she may not be interested in handing out her number immediately. If you really like her, give her some time.

Keep the conversation breezy

Maintain a breezy attitude and keep the conversation light. Find out your mutual interests and center your conversation around them.

No personal questions

Do not bother her with questions too personal. Questions on ex or income should not be brought to the fore unless she mentions herself.

Ask permission before calling

Just because she has agreed to give you her number, doesn’t mean that you can make random calls. You should always ask her permission before the initial 2-3 calls.

Humor works

If you can make a woman laugh or grin at least, half the battle is won. Mind it.

Make your move

When you are more or less convinced about your feelings for your crush and she too is showing interest, don’t delay to ask her out on date.
