4 online dating tips to help you find the right partner

Being catfished on a dating site

A little advice can go a long way

Do a little research about them to avoid being catfished, and respond as soon as you can to avoid being ghosted.

Thanks to the connectivity that the internet has provided for people around the world, looking for the love of your life can be a click away! However, before you start looking around, there are some secret dating tips you need to know about.

If you do not want to come across as desperate, foolish, or weird, here are five things to keep in mind:

1. Be yourself

One of the most important things you can do to make sure you find someone compatible with you is by simply being yourself. The best way you can show others who you are is by uploading a high-quality, up-to-date photo of yourself. By doing so, anyone interested knows who they're dealing with and what they're getting into. Uploading a photo of yourself is as important as listing out your interests and preferences to make sure that you don't end up dating someone incompatible with you.

2. Meet as soon as you can

You and your new-found date may be satisfied with chatting online only, but for many people, meeting up in-person is needed to determine where the relationship will head to. Of course, if you're in a long-distance relationship (LDR) that requires flying to reach each other, it'll be a tough tip to follow. However, if you're living nearby, there's no excuse for not meeting. When you do meet up, try to make it a regular habit. By meeting up often, you can further decide for yourself if the person is the right one for you.

3. Give time to respond

Don't expect an immediate response once you send a text message to your date of choice. There are many reasons why an individual may not respond to you immediately, such as being caught up with work, busy traveling, resting, and more. What's important is that you give them time before you decide whether or not they're interested in you.

At the same time, if you're genuinely interested in the other person, you should respond within a day, whether it is by a phone call or text message. If not, the other person may automatically assume you've found someone else or that you're not interested in them anymore. With that, they'll "ghost" you. The term "ghosting" means that the person acts as if the two of you have never met.

4. Do some background research

The last thing you want to happen when you find someone that's interesting online is getting "catfished." "Catfishing" is when a person fakes their persona online to attract other people. To save yourself from the emotional drama of finding out the person you're so drawn to is someone else, do some background research before committing. On Google, search for the person's name, photo, and history. Look them up on other platforms as well, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and others, to make sure they're all consistent.

Remember these tips the next time you go searching for love online. It'll help ensure that you'll spend less time riding an emotional roller coaster filled with surprise and disappointment, and more time sharing experiences filled with joy and happiness with your better half.
