A lot of you are self-conscious about the fact that you’re on a dating site.But obviously if she’s on the site too, you’re both in the same boat.

how do you feel about online dating-33

Here’s some things to remember for when you’re feeling like you should just delete it all and invest in some quality ice cream and cats.

This is your life, who cares what the haters think?

By the time your date comes around, she’ll already have lost interest or have found someone more attentive.

If you really are going away, wait until you get back to ask her out.

The scenario: “One time I was messaging back and forth with a guy for two weeks and having a great conversation, but he was taking too long to ask me out, so I stopped talking to him.” — Kelly, 32The problem..the solution: If you’re into her, ask her out! And if you’re not, why are you still talking to her? When she’s ready to make her exit from the online dating world, she’ll let you know. ” The scenario: “I can’t stand when I get a message that says ‘any fun weekend plans? ” — Laura, 27The problem..the solution: Sending a generic message—especially one as uninteresting as this—is not what’s going to make you stand out from other guys.

Or if you feel compelled to bring it up, say something like, “I’m not interested in meeting anyone else online. Trust us, she’s getting a boatload of uninspiring messages like “Hi, how are you?As the wise Taylor Swift once say, “The haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.” No matter what you do there’s always going to be people who find fault with it, especially if they’ve been in comfortable relationships for years and don’t understand what the modern dating scene is like. You don’t shop at only one store or eat at only one restaurant, so why would you only try dating one way?Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about taking a chance on the internet and hoping for the best, you’re putting yourself out there and that’s a really cool thing. Just because you have a couple of online dating profiles doesn’t mean you’re never going to meet someone at the grocery store or that you’ve given up on serendipity or romance, you’re just casting a wider net and seeing more fish.If you’re feeling weird and embarrassed about online dating, you’re also not alone.I’m with you and I get you, but we really shouldn’t be embarrassed because we deserve love and fun and happiness, and if it comes from flipping through bios while waiting for an open stall, then cool, that’s time you would have wasted reading bathroom graffiti anyway.A good rule of thumb: if you aren’t available for a date within 7 days of sending the message, don’t send it.
