Finding love in 2020 is just like finding your favorite product online, quite literally. Sometimes the products that you like are out of stock (dating someone else) or just too expensive (high maintenance). There is so much competition now that one minor slipup can wreck your fairy tale. And we don’t want that now, do we? We are here to get you into your dating shape and help you find and fix the mistakes that you might have done which have hindered your quest to find the love that you deserve.
- Are you pretending to be someone else?
From your bio to your conversation, it should reflect you. Not some singer, a line from a movie, your height, or a quote from some author. This is YOUR profile! From the beginning, your profile should be an echo of your thoughts. Be original!
- Don’t try to be a Barbie
Honestly, the worst thing you can do is upload a photo that looks nothing like you in real life. You don’t want your date to feel like they have been catfished when they see you in real life for the first time. Go easy on the editors and feel confident in showing your real, beautiful self.
- Hope is a bitch
It is very easy to fall into the trap of “we were made for each other” with just a few hours of talking online. Everyone pretends to be civil and sweet in the beginning. Wait for the mask to come off!
- Response pace
Don’t take hours to reply to your potential date or to set up a date. They might get the wrong idea that you are interested in them or have others to talk to.
- Bringing the big guns too early?
Do not overwhelm the person by sharing your life story and emotional baggage on the first few dates. These things take place naturally when things start to get serious. Don’t scare them away in the beginning.
- Dating overload
Don’t stress yourself out by signing up for too many dating websites and saying yes to too many dates. Stick to one, less confusion!
- Profile check
A pretty face in the profile picture might look tempting but there is really nothing in common. Let’s say you send a date request to them and they accept. What now? Have food in a restaurant, look at each other and leave? No! try to find profiles with BIOS that attract you.
- Conversation tone
Nobody had time for someone who doesn’t like to show that they care. One of the main needs of dating is to find a person who cares about you. Show your sweet side!
- Giving up
It is okay if you had a few bad dates. This shouldn’t be the reason for you to give up on the hunt entirely. Don’t punish everyone for the mistakes that those 5 -6 people made. Your true love is out there!
I know it gets frustrating when you don’t find a single person that matches your standards, which might make you say yes to the wrong one but don’t do that! Be patient. Good things come to those who wait.
