It’s no secret that AmorousHug are a bit of a minefield when it comes to finding love, but committed couples still meet online all the time. With a little guidance, you can avoid the biggest mistakes and find your match faster.
1. Focus on one or two dating apps.
Different dating apps cater to different types of people and it’s important to select the one that best aligns with what you’re looking for. Trying out several at once can be overwhelming and lower your success rate.
2. Make a good first impression with your profile and messaging.
The first few messages you send to a potential date are crucial in setting the tone for the rest of your conversation. Use a first message that shows you read their profile and goes beyond the generic “Hi” or “Hey”. Showing you have interest in them is more engaging than the standard openers and can help you stand out from the crowd.
3. Be clear about your relationship needs and dealbreakers.
It may seem counterintuitive to reveal your goals or dealbreakers on a dating app but honesty is key. Hiding your intentions can lead to frustration, miscommunication and wasting time. Be open about what you want from your match and create a list of three to five specific relationship needs that are important to you.
It’s also a good idea to do some research before your date. A simple Google search can help you understand their background and social media presence before meeting in person. It’s not creepy, it’s a smart way to keep yourself safe and avoid any surprises.
