The communication has become much easier with the development of the internet and numerous applications. Despite their simplicity, there are numerous tricks and nuances you should consider before using them and is especially important when you want to meet people online.
No matter where you are going to find a future life partner (or a company for only one night), our list of significant rules relates to less-known Ukrainian dating sites or famous apps with millions of users.
1. Always start with verified apps and sites.
Before the registration, read what is written about this resource on the Internet. Do not fall for fraudulent one-day pages, which have the only task to steal the personal data and money of users.
Preference should be given to the largest portals, the history of the development of which lasts for several years. Such sites have a convenient functional base, there are more people on them, which means you will be able to choose whom to get acquainted with.
2. It always may have some risk.
Of course, there are thousands of happy romantic stories about people who’ve met via a dating app. Nevertheless, there are still numerous unpleasant examples. So, don’t tell that nobody warned you if something goes wrong. Only your carefulness and selectivity can prevent you from frauds, freaks, and simple jerks.
3. It doesn’t matter who makes the first step.
Despite the old-fashioned and sexists prejudice in real life, things are a bit different on the internet. If people download a dating app, they are aware of the main purpose – meeting someone! With things like that, in most of the cases, all boundaries and stereotypes vanish.
Instead, men equally like when women write them first. And here’s why: usually men send way more messages and requests to women, but ladies still remain very careful and selective. So, guys get fewer answers. When a man sees a request from a girl, he will definitely appreciate her insistence and consider her a worthy candidate for dating.
4. Long messages are good!
The conversation will not be lively and pleasant, if you answer all the questions with one word like “yes”, “no”, “I do not know”. Talk more about yourself, do not hesitate to say a lot and ask questions that involve long answers. Message “Good morning! I drink tea and I’m going to take a walk in the park.
And what are you doing now?” is more likely to be the beginning of an interesting conversation, rather than the trivial “Hello, how are you?”. Certainly, some information should be reserved for a personal meeting. But in general, relax and enjoy the online communication. Finally, try not to be very talkative, be polite.
5. The users can pretend to be better (or someone else).
Unfortunately, cases of fraud are common on the web. It is a mistake to think that only a short-sighted person can fall for the bait of foes. Schemes of modern scammers are so thought out that even your high intelligence cannot save us from an unpleasant situation, especially if you are trusting.
No matter which heart-rending story you would hear, don’t tell your home address and bank details to a new friend of yours, never! And better not to rush with a phone number.
6. The photos may be far from reality.
It is good when a person you chat with via an app looks the same in real life. However, if a hot dark-haired macho or a striking redhead cutie look too good to be true in a profile, be careful.
Perhaps, in fact, an unsure teenager hides behind the eye-popping photo, or a user just chose a very old picture. Finally, the absence of other images, their low resolution, and the presence of watermarks should warn you.
