5 Must-know Rules For Online Dating
Love – a necessity, a need, a fulfilling experience. Many of us look forward to having someone special in our lives. Trying our hand at the dating game is one way we can get what we want. With the internet taking over most aspects of our lives, dating too has come under its effect. Gone are the days when you accidentally run into your future wife in a supermarket or a garden. Today's generation likes things swift, and online dating provides them with just that. But, just like real life dating, some points should be kept in mind for guaranteed success. Let's find out.
1. Speak Fluently
Okay, we know you are a dude, but that doesn't mean you'll get away with crap. And by crap we mean, the red underline that comes with every wrong spelling you type. Ah, now you might complain we are acting like a school teacher; but trust us, being right pays. P.S: Don't be a Thesaurus junkie though.
2. No Pickup Line. Please...
Yeah smartass, we know you are blessed when it comes to one-liners; but hold your horses right there. Fight every instinct inside you to say something too cool, unless of course you want her to puke at your thought. You may be wondering why we are saying this. So, let us tell you a secret – women bitch. They are going to tell people how creepy you are, and that, my friend, will be end of game for you. Not cool, right?
3. Simplicity Is The Best Policy
Whether you like it or not, saying "hello" or "hi" is still the best way to start off proceedings. Do not start with a "Yo yo yo... wassup hws ya doing babe." It sounds terrible and the only image you are putting out is that of a wannabe rapper desperate to get some action. Start slowly, build some rapport and maybe then you can go on a lyrical voyage. Caution: Do it at your own peril.
4. Patience Is The Name Of The Game
Okay, so you have introduced yourself and had a good chat about half an hour back. Now is the time when you exercise patience. Don't bug her immediately. Women are emotional beings. Let the conversation sink in, let her think about it. Sending tons of messages will get her to picture in bold – DESPERATE. Play it in a calm manner and reap the rewards that follow.

5. Be Comfortable In Your Own Skin
Learn to approach chats with a certain sense of ease. Engaging a woman for long isn't easy and it's a bit harder when they don't know you well. Always chat about interesting things, things that you can generally get a reply for. If she still doesn't reply there can be two possibilities, either she has an IQ of a toddler or you are in the wrong boat altogether. In either case, you should get going.
Online dating might be tougher than you think. It isn't just swipe and hook up. Follow our advice and success will be all yours.
