The Do’s and Dont’s of Online Dating

The Do’s and Dont’s of Online Dating

Over the past few years, online dating has increasingly become a more widely accepted way of meeting a future partner and today, as many as one in five relationships are believed to begin online. Whether you’re an experienced online dater or you’re looking for a more traditional connection, you need a very clear basis to help you tell the difference between the guys worth your time and the one’s you just shouldn’t bother with.

Searching for your right partner requires instincts and listening to your higher consciousness. This becomes easier the more you know about yourself, but there are actually some universal qualities in men that you can look for when you’re out there dating. Remember that no matter how long you’ve been looking for the Mr Right you should never settle. Be mindful of justifying negative qualities, because your honesty with yourself will protect you from heartbreak in the end.

When you’re searching for Mr. Right, it’s important to know what you’re looking for. From the time we’re little girls we’re taught to be pretty and pleasing. We’ve been convinced by society that we are more accommodating of our own needs, and we learn that we shouldn’t be too demanding or place our expectations too high.

We’re so focused on approval that we sometimes forget that we have the ability to make empowered choices about the men we let into our lives.

Part of our empowered choices means we have to be even more careful when it comes to our sexual health. STD rates are rising because of the increase in people using online dating sites to arrange casual and often anonymous sexual encounters. Some of these STD’s are lifelong, genital warts are a common STD that is incurable. Health experts increasingly view apps and sites such as Tinder, Grindr, and OkCupid as enablers of high-risk sex, helping people meet and hook up more efficiently than ever before. The impact of these sites is so profound they are also transforming the way health officials track and prevent outbreaks.

So, now you get the idea. It’s important to know what you’re looking for and recognise that dating is a process. You are going to meet a lot of different men, so learn to protect yourself and spot them quickly. If you relax and enjoy meeting new people, the chances are very good that you will find your Mr. Right. Dating is an adventure. Human beings are fascinating. We all have a story to tell. Mr. Right is out there, along with a host of Mr. Wrongs!
