I have recently met a girl through online dating. We’ve been sending messages for while and now want to meet up this weekend on our first date. The chats we’ve been having are casual but flirty and now I’m afraid I won’t live up to her expectations. I’m shy when I first meet people, I’ve always been more confident sending messages and writing, than face to face. Would like to hear from anybody else going through same personal experience.
How should I phrase my first message when I find a woman I like and want to contact her?
I have been using:
Hi, I’m Tim. I’ve just read your profile, and you sound interesting.
Let me tell you a bit about me. I’m 28 years old, I am training to be a driving insructor. I like pubs and clubs, I like travelling and going on holiday. I like all music, I like listening to all different bands. Occasionally I chill out at home watching DVDs.
I would like to find out more about you. If you are interested please check out my profile and get in touch. Hope to hear from you soon.
Problem is I’m not getting any replies, I’ve tried contacting lots of women on the website in my quest to find a girlfriend. My profile tells them more about me but they are just not responding. I’m not a bad looking man, I have got a beard which is neat and maybe makes me look older.
I’m not sure if my first message is quite right or is it my profile in general that is not appealing? Is it that my message comes across as laid back, or is that a good thing?
Can anyone out there help me please? How do I word my message to get women interested so they contact me? Any advice greatly appreciated.
Watch this funny animation to discover the truth and dangers of meeting people through internet dating . Online dating is fun if you be yourself and be honest so this doesn’t happen to you! Build your profile to make a good first impression using recent photographs of yourself and descibe yourself as you are and not as you wish to be. There’s no point in working hard to find a girlfriend online only to have it all go wrong when you meet face to face because you’re not the person she was expecting.
I like to think I’m good at dating girls, although I do feel like I’m always the one who arrange’s them.
I have had three dates so far with a girl I met on online dating. She was the first to propose that we should meet but I was the one who ended up arranging it and asking when she was free etc. She always says that she looks forward to seeing me but she is never the one to ask me out.
Does anyone have any advice? It would make a nice change if she said to me ‘Hey do you want to, etc’
I am thinking of meeting up with this girl I have been talking to on an online dating site. After the date, if I find there is no chemistry between us, how I do I respectfully end it with her without being rude? I want to be honest, but not come accross as harsh. Do I tell her at the end of the date that there was no chemistry and maybe I won’t want to see her again? Do I say it was nice meeting her and say I’ll be in touch then call, email or text her to tell her that I think we should go our seperate ways? I don’t want to be the typical bloke who never calls back, it’s happened to me before in the past and I don’t want to do that to any girl.
Any advice welcome
Listen to April! She advises that you have at least 5 different places you can go for your first date when you are online dating. The idea is that if you take a girl out on a Monday and have someone else lined up for the next day also, then you don’t want to be going into the same bar or restaurant in case the waiter recognises you and says something to you like, “Hi! It’s you again! You are with someone different tonight?”
Trying to find a girlfriend isn’t easy in the first place, so you don’t want to ruin your chances by taking all your dates to the same place. Just imagine you are on a date with the one girl that you think could end up being a long term girlfriend for you, and then the bar tender starts talking about how you are in this place every night with a different girl. Not good eh?!
So take the advice and have at least 5 different venues to choose from to take your dates, and make sure they are classy places too!
Watch this video. This can happen to you! If it does, then learn from it. There are thousands of girls on this site waiting to chat to you. Once you start, keep it lighthearted and funny, then when the time feels right, be sure to move on to the next stage. Don’t wait for her to move things on, that’s your job! if you leave it too long, she may well move on and you will have lost your chance!
When a woman shows up for a blind date from an online dating site but looks nothing like her photo, what would you do?
Once we have already established an impression of someone, even when confronted with opposing information we are slow to change our minds. These people, having exchanged emails and photos, would have established an impression of what each other were like. Even when confronted with a completely different person, some of them are uncertain and just continue on, or they are confused at the very least.
Is this a benefit with online dating – that impressions formed by attractiveness only counts for so much but the interaction through emails etc draws the majority of interest from their personality instead? Maybe finding a girlfriend online is a way to get away from those impressions formed initially by looks?
I have met this girl through online dating and we have been getting on really well. The time has now come for us to meet face to face and so we are going to meat each other. I’m 21, she’s 20. What should I take with me? flowers, or a huge fluffy toy maybe? Where do I take her? Should I hug her when I meet or not? Please help!
