There are tons of situations and facts that are involved when you are searching for the perfect relationship on online dating sites. Learning how to deal with each one is what takes practice. There are some myths that are completely untrue when it comes to dating online. Figuring out which ones could be tricky and can easily get you confused. I have developed a short list containing some myths that I have found to be untrue.
5 Online Dating Myths:
Myth #1: You Can’t Sense Chemistry Online
This is completely untrue, if you get a gut feeling just by looking at the person’s profile that contains photos as well as their description; that’s chemistry. It might not be the same chemistry that most experience at a dinner date, but it is still chemistry. It is a proven fact that people who have similar interests are automatically drawn to each other. Of course, opposites do attract as well.
Myth #2: Winking, Flirts, etc Features Don’t Work
This myth is mainly for women. Some dating sites have a cute feature such as sending winks, flirts, or kisses to other members of the site. I have witness many women that take those advances from a man to be perverted, disgusting, or impersonal. That is not the intention of those men, they are simply trying to break the ice and do something cute. He is clearly showing that he has interests in you. He doesn’t have to send you a huge essay introducing himself just to get your attention. If a man sends you one of these features, and you scoop out his profile to your surprise he seems interesting to you. Don’t be afraid to send him a quick message saying “I got your Wink thanks. You seem interesting. Want to chat.”
Myth #3: Online Dating Is Only For Young Singles
This myth is completely untrue! There is absolutely no age limit (of course you have to be 18 years old or older) for online dating. It doesn’t matter how old you are. You have every right to find a partner as well. There are some dating sites that are for certain target age group, but other than that don’t be ashamed or embarrassed to join a free online dating site.
Myth #4: Must Have Lots Of Bad Dates Before You Have One Good
This isn’t entirely true. Sometimes those that experience lots of bad dates usually pick the wrong type of people to date. If you search through profiles you will find the person who is best suited for you. Read everything on their profile, look at their pictures, and send messages if you have any other questions. There is no reason why you should have to go one numerous of bad dates before you find the one. Be picky, but not too picky.
Myth 5: Dating Sites Are Full Of Scammers/Fakes
Almost if not all dating sites have fakes and scammers. Most dating sites work very hard to keep out those who are scammers and those who pose as fakes. This does not mean that the entire online dating community is fake. It is very easy to spot out those who are fake from those that are real. Just be very selective and do not give out any personal information to anyone.
Just remember that dating is supposed to be fun. Enjoy yourself and follow your instinct in choosing the best possible choice for a potential partner. Good Luck!
