Unstructured Creative Approach to Online Dating


The idea that dating is not normal or health is far from the truth. The simple fact is that online dating actually offers everything normal dating does and more. You are able to actually find out a little about the person before even making contact. Do they like the same things as you? After the initial process of making first contact, it really is no different to ordinary dating. You exchange a few phone calls or texts and then go out and meet as you normally would.

Many people also worry about their safety with online dating sites. The fact is, the online part is entirely safe as you are at home, at your computer. As long as you are sensible and initially don't give out any personal details, you won't go wrong. Once you decide to meet your online date in person, just be cautious as you would be with anyone who is new to you. Make sure you tell a friend or family member where you are going and when you will be back and make sure all meets are in public places to start with.

One advantage is that you can actually use the information the person has put in their profile and ask a few discreet questions when you meet to see if the answers match what is on the profile. A bit sneaky but an easy way to check that the profile details are genuine.

The usual, everyday dating site that requires credit card numbers are tempting enough for many people already, what more if the promise includes, in large, bold, colored fonts: "Dating Site, No Credit Card?" This becomes a virtually irresistible force for many netizens who scour the web for legitimate sites. But as with everything else, the tagline can mean what it says, but it can also be hiding some sinister secrets. Read on to find out which dating sites to trust, and which to keep away from.

If a site is talking about offering a free service anyway, then why does it ask for your credit card numbers? According to many of them, it's to provide proof of age, as the great majority of sites like these require users to be of legal age. Although this is ostensibly true, it still is a scary thought (as it should be) to give away credit card numbers just like that. Also, by way of legal trends on the internet, many sites requiring visitors to be of legal age just present a button to click on a digital signature, so asking for numbers does seem to raise alarm bells.

"Suppose she sees?" Jim stuttered.

"Well, it'll be something for her to read," Tim replied, grinning.

"The cut. The cut. Suppose she sees the cut."

"Well, good grief, it's not as though you've sliced your throat open. Anyway, she'll probably take pity on you. She may even be turned on by neurotics."

"Thanks a bunch," called Jim, heading for the front door.

"Don't forget to take off the newspaper," Tim yelled.

They'd agreed to meet at the restaurant. It was a small place and Tuesday night, so there weren't many people there. Jim told the waiter that he was expecting a guest, and the waiter seated him facing the entrance. Now his thoughts really started to bubble and boil inside him.

Did she just accept out of politeness? To be rid of me, perhaps? Even then, she probably had no intention of coming. Probably a good thing. After all, what do I say to her? I'm sober! I look such a gringe! That's the point. Why would she agree to go out with a twit like me?

Just to put you out of your misery, they had a marvellous evening and are now engaged!

Like so many shy people who lack confidence, Jim was also a terrible worrier. He'd been bowled over by Sue as soon as he'd set eyes on her at the party, and this made matters ten times worse for him. He so desperately wanted to make a good impression, that by the time Sue did turn up, he was virtually catatonic, sweating profusely and had his mouth open.

Now that a lot of people who become members of online dating sites are getting more and more internet savvy, most internet dating sites have started adding more technological enhancements on their sites. Many of these internet dating sites have evolved from matchmaking sites based on photos alone, into more sophisticated websites that allow them to chat in real time. The more sophisticated online dating sites even offer chat boards that sometimes have VOIP or voice chat capability.

For many men, the torture doesn't stop there. They actually beat themselves up for fearing rejection. What's wrong with me? Why can't I be like so-and-so? Why do I fear rejection so much I must be a loser etc"

Rather than force yourself to try stop worrying about rejection, consider the very worst that could happen. "Well, if I go up to her, I might be rejected. I would be so embarrassed I would have to get out of here. Then I would go home and pour myself a really strong drink, no make it two, may be three. I don't think I'll be able to forget the experience and every time I think about it I'd have to drink myself silly just to numb the pain. Pretty soon I'd be a bum on skid row. I'd be so ashamed I'd have to move to another city, where I wouldn't have ..." keep going until you see the absurdity of your predictions. data-ad-slot="4795413898" data-ad-client="ca-pub-3754405753000444" data-ad-slot="4795413898"

1. You must realise that it's your first date offline, both of you may seem awkward with each other at first, but try to break the ice. Don't wait for the ice to melt, break it! Maybe he's also just waiting for you, so make your move. Wait for the right time and act for yourself.

2. Realise, as the golden rule of the gentlemen that they are compelled to pay for at least most or some parts of your date. If you are uncomfortable with this kind of generosity; speak up and split the cost; don't hesitate to speak up. He'd appreciate it, trust me. But as most gentlemen do, they will pay and that's not trying to point out that you can't pay for it, but rather, as a mutual understanding in that is part of the basic rules of dating.

3. Always keep your conversations appropriate, short and light. Avoid lengthy discussion which could be downright boring and leaving you with nothing more to say. Also, remind your self, a big NO-NO about these topics: the "ex", plans of getting laid, plans of getting married, controversial topics unless he's interested and you also find it interesting, make sure that you keep these out in your first few dates. However though, when he expresses an opinion in which you are not in favor of or contradict to, then express yourself. Show him that you are a woman who has her own thoughts and would stand up for her belief. Just don't be too overpowering and start attacking him personally; you don't want your date to walk out on you, you'll just feel guilty afterwards.
