Tips for internet dating profiles
I made this mistake early on and now understand why a few girls, after several emails, would ask direct questions like “Is there anything else you would like me to answer? There are times where you will feel like you are communicating with a “great catch” only to realize what a mistake that was 60 seconds into the first date.
It is important to meet early on so less time is spent talking to the wrong person and more time is spent trying to find the right one. The first date should be planned not long after communication has begun.
I found that people will not be offended if you suggest a first date before they are ready.
In general, my rule is an invitation to meet should come by the third email you send.I once talked to a woman for two months before we met.She was very nice and we got along well so I was willing to communicate but let her know I’d be talking to others while she gained comfort.On my first date with my wife, I schedule a one hour date at a diner.After the hour was over, I explained that I only extend the good dates and since ours was a great date asked if she would be up for miniature golf (she was).
Honestly, I have never felt comfortable talking on the phone for long periods of time (even to close friends) so I prefer to jump straight from the internet communication to meeting.
