There’s no magic formula, but these dating tips for women might bring you a step closer to meeting Mr Right…
Firstly, have fun. You will likely meet quite a few men before you find Mr Right, so enjoy the dates you go on and learn from them. Make some new friends.
Secondly, take your time. He’s a great charmer, but is he a true friend? Don’t fall too soon. Make him work for it. See if he’s worth your time.
Thirdly, present yourself in a nice way. Update your wardrobe, get a haircut and talk about your life in a nice manner. Even if you’ve had some struggles lately, be proud of them. Show him you’re doing what you can to make your dreams come true.
Lastly, write a short, but personal profile free of spelling mistakes. Let your sense of humour shine through. Also be sure to talk about what you like and what you want, as opposed to what you don’t like and don’t want. Upload some pictures of yourself as well, showing off you and your life. Men want to see you lead a life you love.
Don’t be shy to contact men online - they want to hear from you. Send them a short message complimenting them on something in their profile and ask them a question to get the conversation going. If there’s chemistry ask if they want to meet up for a quick drink, or coffee.
You want to keep the first meeting short as a longer meeting puts unnecessary pressure on you. You don’t know if there’s going to be chemistry. If there is, rather leave them wanting more.
When it comes to online dating tips for safety, never hand out your credit card details, or address, meet somewhere public, keep an eye on your drink, tell a friend where you’re going and make sure to text them when you’re home again. You probably had better judgment picking your online date than the date you met in a pub when you were tipsy, but caution is always recommended. Getting to know someone before you trust them means avoiding disappointment.
As we offer tips for online dating, we are often asked what men are looking for in single women? It differs from man to man, but here are some tips for what they want.
Be honest and confident. A man looks for a woman who is unabashedly herself, so long as she is also considerate of her surroundings.
Be clear. Men tend to say what they mean and expect you to do the same. So if you tell a man that he really doesn’t need to walk you to your train station, don’t get offended when he doesn’t.
Tease and challenge. It’s part of the flirting. “Want to meet for dinner on Friday?” “Depends. Will you impress me with your choice of restaurant? ;)”
Don’t be too available. Why? Because if you prioritize him before you even know him, he’ll think you’ll go out with anyone. It won’t make him respect you. So prioritize your work, friends and family until you know he’s right for you. That means, don’t answer every text straight away and don’t change your calendar around for him all the time.
