The Online Dating Experience

Before we dive into the basics, let’s start with an introduction to the world of online dating. Online dating is where most people first try to find a partner. It’s a convenient way to meet people with similar interests and who you would like to go out with, but it’s also much more intimate and potentially harmful than its physical counterpart, which we’ll get to in a moment.

Online dating has become an accepted part of our culture, and it’s likely that you have at least one favorite site that you visit daily. Sites like, eHarmony, and OkCupid allow you to set your profile, and you can set up a free profile if you’re just getting started. You can sign up for free and try out the site to see how the site works. You can also pay for some sites in order to set up your profile and get some extra features that will help you find a match, like eHarmony’s patented Chemistry Matching System. In the process, you can usually manage to sift through the anxiety of making a first impression, meet a variety of different people, and usually discover your ideal match.

How to Meet People in Person

Picking up a date in a bar is the traditional, old-school way of going about it. It’s a lot less risky, and it has a certain thrill to it. It’s also fun, and maybe you already know someone who goes to the bar to meet people?

For many people, the idea of getting a friend, coworker, or family member to do your dirty work and set you up with someone you like is much too complex. You want someone who is going to be able to put you out there and not throw you under the bus. You want someone who you can be comfortable with. (In other words, your own family.) The problem with finding a real match that way is that it can be difficult to predict how things are going to go, and you have to rely on other people’s feelings. Also, if your family or coworker likes someone else, they can screw up your plans.

The other way of going about it is meeting someone in an “older” setting—you know, like a singles’ dinner party or a picnic. Many of these get so big that they become a full-on party, but there is a good reason for it. These parties are usually much smaller than typical gatherings, so there is a
Believe it or not, dating used to be easier. Sure, there were all those Facebook relationship quizzes to make sure you found the right partner and the boozy bad sex nights spent sitting on each other’s laps, but overall, dating was pretty straightforward. We are not gonna lie: as much as we think we really want to date the best-looking person on the planet, finding someone we actually want to be with is still hard. But, as The Source points out, the best time to start dating is now—before they get cold feet or a hot date gets you hitched.

Convince Him/Her You’re Good at Conversation

The Source: “The number one mistake guys make on dates is thinking a woman wants to go back home with them. The first step in dating is to decide that the person she is with is the one for her. For her sake, you have to be convinced that this is the case, and the best way to do this is with conversation. If she’s not comfortable with you, she will tell you! If she’s interested, she will tell you that too. So, to avoid the awkwardness of silence, just keep talking. Don’t wait for the other person to initiate the talk, either—keep it going. Talk about anything you want (books, sports, travel, even politics, to name a few) and you will soon discover that, with some practice, you can speak for hours at a time and be eager to hear more. This will reinforce that you are a good listener, a trait that should be one of your best assets. This is the first step to really building a relationship.”

Stop Apologizing to People for When You Hurt Them

Daily Dot: “People are so busy with their lives and career that they’re rarely around when they’ve got a problem or are going through a hard time. They’re also too tired to listen when you need help or tell you what you need to hear when you’re in the middle of it. I know that’s rough, but you have to stop apologizing for being there to help a friend, family member or co-worker. If they can’t be there for you when you need help, who will be there for them? You’ll never know, and that’s not fair to either of you. If you’re going through something rough and someone offers to be there for you during the worst days, thank them and accept that offer. It’s not an invitation for
