Dating tips

Although online dating isn’t a new phenomenon, it can sometimes feel as though you’re the only one who doesn’t know how it works. At Firstdate we’ll help make things clear!

Online dating has been a popular way to find love for over a decade, and unlike those booze-fueled encounters at the pub, online dating is a more pleasant way to get to know someone – no pressure, no stress.

One thing that differentiates online dating from traditional dating is that you can have more than one flirt on the go at once. Things move quickly in the dating jungle, and despite taking your time, there are plenty of people who want to meet up straight away. Trust your gut feeling and only meet when you think it feels right. You might also want to take a peek at our dating tips.

How do you find the right single for you?

Although not having any expectations can be good, expectations can make it easier to find the person you’re looking for. Make sure you spend time thinking about who you want to date. Remember, dating isn’t like a coffee commercial where the man of your dreams will fall through the roof and everything’s perfect from the start. Online dating is now an everyday occurrence in which things don’t have to be as perfect as a romantic Hollywood film. Yet it’s also important that you try to be positive and keen to arouse interest.

Make sure you’re honest, and compliment people without coming on too strong.  Take things as they come – treat yourself, and dare to laugh!
