Dating Tips from People Who Met Their Significant Other on an App

TRY A DIFFERENT APPROACH

A lot of people are not looking for relationships on these platforms. If you’re looking for a date, a real interaction, I think removing alcohol from the situation is huge. Because you get to know someone and who they really are. If they aren’t able to talk to you without alcohol, then how is that a sustainable relationship?-Frank

 

BE HONEST

The biggest advice I have is that dating apps or online sites are only designed to get you to the first meeting. The rest is on you. Misleading pictures and a fake job might get you to the first date, but the truth will be realized quickly and you’ll be swiping again for a chance with someone new.-Todd

 

HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS

I used to think I had an idea of who I wanted to fall in love with, how I wanted to fall in love, and when I wanted to fall in love. I was wrong. The guy I fell in love with was totally unexpected. He was unlike any guy I had ever met or envisioned before.-Carlie

 

DON’T FORCE A CONNECTION

If you’re not feeling it, don’t feel bad and never try to force a connection. If you’ve been talking and are still nervous about meeting them in person, Skype or FaceTime, and if they say they can’t…RUN! Because they are probably a catfish!-Rayne
