There are some important elements to consider before you decide if online dating is in your
best interest. So let's begin the journey right here together! Grab a pad and a pencil. Not a
pen but a pencil with a good eraser. Why a pencil? Good question and the answer is:
1. The rules of online dating are never the same for two people and like technology the rules are always changing.
2. Know that online dating can become more addictive than:
NFL Sunday Football
Texas Holdem Poker
Alcohol and or Drugs
Yes, of this I am certain, and like the items listed above before you realize it you find yourself surfing the multitude of dating websites and please note their sole objective is not to rob you of your money but your time. A person can make more money but time is the measurement of change, distance, space and direction none of which you can get back.
1.Set predetermined times to check your profile for Messages Likes and Interest
Example: During your morning break while at work.
Never: At the first light of day.
Check your profile when you first wake-up
Never: Right before you go to bed
Never: More than 2-3 times a day
Best Case Scenario: Keep it simple never before 9:00 am or after 9:00 pm
Why? Reeks of desperation. A man or woman who sees you online first thing in the morning has peeped your hold card, and it's not the Joker. Checking your profile before you roll out of bed those watching know you woke up lonely and desperate.
Scenario: You're online before or after nine, and you receive a message or chat request. "Hey what's up?" Innocent enough but so telling. If you don't answer, you run the risk of being labeled as RUDE. If you answer you suggest, you are available, and eager. Timing is critical.
