The ability to be able to communicate and interact with potential partners has long been critical in finding a partner. With the introduction of great online platforms for communication like Facebook and Twitter the online world became a wonderful place to find new people from all over the world with similar likes and desires. Once this platform emerged it wasn’t long before people used it for Social Dating.
Social Dating is different from online dating and dating websites in many ways. Dating websites are usually paid arrangements where a relatively small but very well targeted group of people are looking for love. Social dating begins on platforms like Facebook and Twitter where meeting and dating others is often not a primary concern. The targeting decreases from online dating to social dating but the pool of potential dates blossoms to nearly unimaginable proportions. In short, it can be a wonderful way to meet tons of people and create natural and organic relationships with them.
Benefits Of Social Dating.
1) Natural relationships can easily develop.
2) Pool of potential dates is incredibly large.
3) No matter how targeted your interests are you will surely find others with the same interests.
4) The anonymity of social dating makes it easy for a relatively introverted person to be more outgoing and at ease with people they meet.
The Dangers Of Social Dating.
1) The biggest concern for online dating is predators. The anonymity gives these sick individuals a chance to stalk people with impunity.
2) Along with stalkers come scammers who can also target people because of the anonymous aspect of social dating. They are out to cheat you out of your hard earned money.
3) Of course there are the potential lies of your prospective dates themselves. They may use other people’s pictures and even lie about what they like to generate more dates.
The pros and cons are solid reasons why social dating can be great, but also reasons why you should proceed with a little bit of caution. The next important parts of social dating are the tips and tricks that can be used by everyone for success in social dating.
Online tips and tricks for social dating.
1) Don’t Lie. It may seem that you will want to craft tales that make you look good. Perhaps use a picture that is 10 years old and no longer resembles you. Do not do it. You have to meet the person eventually and if they have fallen for a “you” that does not exist you will not have a successful relationship
2) Do self promote! While lies are bad, it is alright to highlight your “good” points. Try to make yourself seem a little more active and “fun” than you really are. Lies are bad, but it is OK to try to cast the truth in the best light.
3) Meeting the “right” person through social networking is in a big part a volume game. Get out there and make friends with A LOT of people. Many will not be interested, but some will. You never know until you try.
Offline tips for social dating.
1) You get one chance at a first impression. Make sure you are well groomed and dressed and look your “best” for the first meeting in the “real world” with someone you desire.
2) Do not lose confidence. You have fought half the battle. It seems as if there is compatibility. Just be yourself and at ease and let things progress naturally.
3) Keep conversation flowing, but learn the importance of listening too.
4) The overarching theme for meeting a person for the first time is that you already know you have the POTENTIAL to be compatible. Do not assume that you are already and let comfort spread naturally. If you are right for each other you should find ease pretty quickly.
