Florida Dating & Personals

Thinking about dating online? Not sure where to start? Online dating has become an extremely popular way to meet and is more accepted today and growing fast! Meeting online can be safer and a much easier way to meet people who have similar interest and common goals. It gives you more control and more options allowing you to find someone who is more compatible on your own time. If you take the proper precautions, it can even be much safer than meeting at a bar! And there are many more options to choose from with the numbers growing everyday! In addition, online dating allows you to find someone who is looking for the same kind of relationship as you are...a soulmate, a casual relationship, or a new friend.  And the future of online dating will be even more popular as options and features become more advanced.

The best tips everyone should follow when dating online is to be yourself. Be truthful about who you are. Know yourself and be comfortable with who you are. Describe yourself in a way that shows your character. If you are funny, serious, sweet, sarcastic, whatever it is, there is someone out there who will love you for you. Post a recent, realistic photo. When it comes to safety, do what is sensible, what you would do when meeting a stranger on the street. Meeting online is no different in that aspect. Always meet in a public place, don't share your personal information, etc.

Tips and Hints

  • You will have good days and bad days. Don't get discouraged on the bad days.
  • You may wink at or email people who never reciprocate. You may start some great conversations with people who may just stop emailing for no apparent reason. Move on and realize that either it isn't meant to be or the timing is off. 
  • Chemistry is a big issue. Most men it seems want to meet pretty quickly after starting a conversation to see if there is come kind of physical chemistry between you. If you feel uncomfortable with that, let them know and if they like your personality in the emails and in your profile, they will wait. Or, go ahead and meet and enjoy meeting new people!

Tips and Hints for the Guys:

  • Don't brag about how romantic you are, about amazing first dates in a limo or a hot air balloon ride, etc. or about how your girl better like flowers because she will get them a lot, etc. ...if you do not intend to do these things. Telling a woman about your spectacular first date with another woman and how she didn't appreciate it or whatever...and then asking this woman to meet you at the Ale House is like hearing her tell you about all of the sexual fantasies she gave to the last guy she dated and then showing up in a corset strapped so tightly, you'll never get in! A woman will like you much better if you state that you prefer to date at an Ale House type restaurant than to brag about other fantastic dates and not even come close to meeting that romantic fantasy that the girl you attracted by saying that, is seeking.

And for the Girls:

  • Most guys need to see a picture and want to see that you look like the picture when you meet. This is a really big issue with a lot of guys. So girls, be honest. And if  you are not in the shape that the guy thinks you are in and you think it will be an issue, don't be afraid to say it and save yourself the frustration.
  • Research and rate before you date! From womansavers.com. Also check out these sites to see if the guy you are interested in is a jerk! dontdatehimgirl.com.
