On line dating mistakes
Online, you have less than 10 seconds to get a man's attention before he moves on. Never complain about your ex or anything else in your world that's not right. Instead be fun and be flirty and do it in a way that intrigues him.
Mistake # 2: Typos and grammar issues There's nothing worse than reading a profile that sounds like a middle school kid wrote it.
So what do you think about this online dating advice from men?
Mistake #1: Being boring or negative in your profile How many times have you wanted to take a snooze reading a man's profile that continually says I like this and I like that. Now think of a party where you meet someone new and they start in with the '"I do this" monologue without stopping to take a breath. Your eyes start looking around the room trying to signal anyone who catches your eye to come and rescue you!
Mistake #6: Making demands Nothing irritates a man more than a woman who makes salary or entertainment demands in her profile.
Even financially successful men have told me this is a huge turn-off.
Ryder says, “Don’t fill your profile with selfies.” This makes you look narcissistic. On the blog she says, “One or two won’t make-or-break your first digital impression, but it’s more important you show off some other angles in addition to your selfie. So, if rock-hard-ab guy only has pictures of himself at the gym, drinking beers, or hanging out with his buddies, then he might not be all that profound or all that interested in getting serious. Ryder also says he doesn’t like it when women fill out every personality test, every compatibility questionnaire, and answer every match question. Do not ask someone to come over to your place and *cough* service you if you’ve never met.
Some men like that, sure, but some men just want a woman whose height and weight are proportional. They just want to know what the whole package looks like before they write. However, if he has photos of pets, vacations, activities, hobbies, we can sense a little better, who he is as a person.
In fact, your profile should be 75% about you, and 25% about the type of person you’re seeking. Everyone is happy, likes music, movies and walks on the beach. Liking Willie Nelson is much different than 5 Finger Death Punch. You don’t have to divulge every little bitty reason, but you should at least tell him something, even if it’s “Yeah, I’m going in a different direction.” Now, I’m not talking about some Joe Schmo you messaged maybe once or twice. If you’re not feeling it for the guy, be honest, but kind. It isn’t your fault, it’s an unfortunate PR problem for your age group, and it sucks, but less so if you’re aware of it. Well, this guy who broke pretty much all of my dating criteria, plus a bad boy, buttered me up, boosted my ego, and made empty promises. There is more to a man than his gorgeous face and abs. Maybe we shouldn’t be so fast to judge the book by its cover. Must not have pets (though I changed that last one because I pretty much ruled out 98% of men).Many men are on dating sites to find true love, not a threesome. Let him decide if whatever you’re bringing along is something he wants before you both haul yourselves out in public for the face-to-face meeting.
I’m talking guys that you’ve had a back and forth exchange with for weeks. Sometimes the chemistry is just not there and there’s nothing wrong with that. You can say it on the date, or if you’re uncomfortable with that, you can message him afterward and say there just wasn’t a spark. When you’re out on a date with a guy, they do not want you to tell them that you’re in an open relationship and that your boyfriend is cool with it.
