In this article I want to share some of the things I have learned about meeting women online that really help me get a response, avoid wasting time, and making sure that first date goes well. My online dating advice for men will include: what to avoid when contacting women online to increase your chances of a response, how to avoid wasting everyone’s time, and what you need to do when arranging that first date.
The first piece of online dating advice for men I have for you deals with not just your first contact message, but any follow up messages you exchange with the woman of your choice. In your messages to women you need to make sure you use proper spelling and grammar. No text-speak or slang, by using proper spelling and grammar women will have more respect for you. On the other hand if you use text-speak or slang then you will come off as either uneducated or lazy, and you don’t want to give a woman that impression, especially if it is a FIRST impression.
The second piece of online dating advice for men deals with avoiding wasting everyone’s time. This is a simple and obvious piece of advice, but a lot of people don’t follow it. DO NOT LIE on your profile or in your messages to get a date, it will come out eventually, and depending on the lie it could lead to a fight at best or break up a relationship at worst. So please be honest to avoid any drama, fighting, heartache, or wasted time.
The final piece of online dating advice for men I have deals with setting up the first date and increasing your odds of getting a second date. First of all, by the time you get to the point where you are arranging a date you should have at least some idea of what this person likes, so you can do a date that is more likely to keep her interested and avoid the dinner and a movie first date. Also, if you are trying to surprise them with an activity (which can earn you a lot of points) make sure you at least give them some idea of what they should be wearing, because there will be some irritation on their part if they show up for a nice night out and you show up dressed casually for a hike.
