Online dating can bring some unknowns. Sometimes it can be hard to separate sincere people from the players. Fortunately, there are key things you can keep an eye out for. Here are 5 ways to spot a good online date.
They are upfront
When reading profiles keep a look out for mentions of their intentions. If someone says they are looking for something casual or just want to have fun, believe them. If that is not what you’re looking for then do not t waste your time on them. Meet someone who has the same outlook on dating as you.
They send personalized messages
If you receive any generic messages do not immediately get too excited. It can mean someone is simply copying and pasting in order to blast as many people as possible. On the other hand, if someone sends you a note and they mention stuff that is relevant to your profile then you will know they took the time to read about you and who you are. That means they are seriously interested in getting to know you.
They post pictures
When checking out someone’s profile, see if the person you are interested has pictures posted. And make sure it is not just of their face. Look for various types of pictures such as full-body, being active, showing an interest in hobbies, etc. This will give you a better view of who they are and shows they have nothing to hide.
They use correct grammar
We are not talking about being the grammar police to every little, tiny word. If someone uses proper grammar and correct punctuation it demonstrates they took the time to proof read their profile. It shows they want to put their best self forward and showcase themselves in good light.
They share information about themselves
You can not get to know someone online if they are closed off and not sharing. If someone is hesitant to share details about themselves it could mean they have something to hide. When someone is genuinely interested in online dating they will be open to sharing things about themselves. Start with asking questions and if they are willing to answer them then chances are they are authentic.
Always listen to your gut when it comes to online dating. Use these tips and you’ll be on your way to finding someone genuine.
