It’s not easy being the first one to make a move, open up or be vulnerable. So when you try to make something happen and reach out to someone that interest you, just saying “hi” doesn’t leave much space to continue your conversation for long.

Better, if you make sure to ask an open-ended question like asking a query about anything specific in their profile, and such a topic gives ample opportunity to jump start the conversation.

Showing curiosity about someone’s story, accomplishments, passions, or interests, the law of reciprocity usually kicked in, and then you have enough to shine. Keeping people interested in you, conversation is essential.

The more time you spend with someone, the closer you are likely to get. And, don’t be afraid to get creative when you ask, just make sure that it gets the conversation going in a positive direction.

Don’t shy away from letting your true self come through. We all have a handy-dandy list of fun facts to share with other people, and you must describe at least your one go-to interesting fact which is going to wow someone looking at your profile.

Why should you do it? A clever question on your profile can help intros flow more easily between you and your match and could also help foster intimacy quickly. It helps separate you from the pack. And, if a relationship is going to last, they need to appreciate you for everything you are, quirks included.


3. Don’t Lie About Your Age

Lying about your age in online dating is silly. If you do, you’re going to miss out on all the wonderful people who want you for who you are.

If you lie about your age, your falsehood will come out eventually if your relationship moves forward. Ageism is alive and well, but you’re only making it worse by lowering your age on dating apps. So lead off with the truth and avoid a mess of trouble later.


4. Be Yourself

Just be yourself, because there is essentially nothing wrong with you. If you’re shy, it’s OK to be shy. If you’re chatty, it’s OK to chat.

If you are hoping for a long-term relationship, it is better to be forward about your interests, profession, and personality, as faking it can become harder over time.

Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not. Remember, when you put yourself out there online, the most important thing is to be proud of who you are.

There’s no point in lying about anything. While you don’t have to divulge every detail you don’t want to early on. It’s not the time to talk about heavy stuff going on in your life now or a past you’re ashamed of, but if your date begins to become “intimate” it is important to give an honest answer or evade the issue for now. Don’t tell a bare-faced lie.

The bottom line is: dating should be fun. And dating apps are a great way to do it. If you’re not actively using dating apps to their full potential, you can’t really complain about your lack of options.

By using tips toward putting yourself out there online, you’re maximizing your prospects and increasing your chances of finding someone who you truly click with.
