Dating & Technology Q&A: How to Win a First Date After Meeting Online

Question from Andrew L: It’s easy to look good online. There’s photo editing and time to plan what to say. When you finally meet someone in person after connecting online, there’s only one chance to impress. How can I make sure a first date is a win?

You have a match on your favorite dating app and the conversations online are taking off. You’re up for hours talking to your match and find that you’re both interested in each other. But how can you be sure to impress on a first date when you’ve already gotten to know each other? How do you make a successful transition from online to in person dating? Read dating advice from our relationship experts Suzanne Oshima and Robert Manni!

Dating Advice to Help You Successfully Transition from Online Conversations to a Killer First Date!

Suzanne K. Oshima, Matchmaker: Online dating can seem like a major convenience for people that are too busy to get out there and meet people, but technology can be a setback when it comes to actually meeting someone face to face. In order to win that first date after meeting online, it’s important to be the best version of yourself— both inside and out. When you’re able to achieve that level of confidence and self-love, that’s when the right man will ask you out.

Having high self-esteem, knowing your self-worth, and understanding exactly what you have to offer a man is key. If you believe it, then he will see it, too. You’ll be on your way to that first date in no time! And if he can’t see that an amazing woman is right in front of him, then he’s probably the wrong man for you!

Robert Manni, Guy’s Guy: There are so many dating apps and websites that today’s singles often overanalyze things after making an online connection, sadly never scoring an actual date. When I was single and dating online frequently, I became comfortable approaching women online and responding to the ladies who contacted me first.

If I felt attracted to how a woman presented herself online, I’d send a short note and ask an open-ended question about her profile. If she responded, I’d send my digits. If the woman was still interested, she’d invariably send me her number and I’d make sure to call her by the next day. I’d keep the conversation short and, if things felt right, I’d suggest meeting. This usually led to a first “date” over a beverage. After that first face-to-face meet up things either moved forward or went nowhere. It was that simple.

So, if you see someone you like online, be cool, but make your move. Don’t overanalyze. Trust your gut, but keep an open mind.There are a lot of cool people out there just like you. Remember, dating is a fun sport. Good luck.

There’s no denying that tequila is one of the hottest spirits around right now; however, not all tequila is created equal. Some of it is cheap and fills you with nothing but regrets the next day. In fact, that may be the reason you’re scared to get anywhere near this specific libation ever again. Do yourself a favor and revisit the spirit or take a different approach to it. While there is bad and ugly tequila, there is some really good juice that has hit the market. It’s a spirit that men and women enjoy. It’s been said that women who drink tequila are mysterious and sexy. On your next date night, maybe pour a little tequila on the rocks to knock off their socks.

Dating & Technology Q&A: Should You Delete Pictures of a Long-Term BF?

Question from Mara S.: My ex and I broke up after having a long-term relationship. Should I take pictures of us down from social media now that I’m seeing someone new or should the new guy in my life understand that my ex and I had a long history together?

Technology makes it so easy to share with the world the things that matter to you. It’s normal to post memories that you want to hold onto, but beware of what message your social media is sending. When you are interested in someone, you devour everything online about them in hopes of learning something new. That’s true for someone interested in you. What do you want someone to learn about you from your photos online? Read below for dating advice from relationship experts!

Technology Dating Advice that Helps You Know When to Delete Pics of Your Ex

Suzanne K. Oshima, Matchmaker: While you and your ex had a long history together, it’s time to take the pictures down and move on with your new guy. There’s a great quote by T.D. Jakes that best sums it up, “You can’t drive forward looking in the rearview mirror.”

Robert Manni, Guy’s Guy: My answer is a resounding yes. When it’s time to move forward, take down all photos from social media of you with your ex. If you want a new beginning, especially with someone new, you need to send him the right signals about your availability. The past has merit. We live, we love, and we learn, but there must be a reason your former boyfriend is now your ex. If you’re having a hard time deleting photos of him off social media, perhaps you are not quite ready to move on. If you truly want a new beginning, then start fresh on social media and give your new suitors the opportunity to see who you are right now. If things work out, they could be the luck one in your pictures. Good luck!

Love & Libations: Royal Reds for the Royal Celebrity Wedding

Posted In: Food, Relationship Experts, Yolanda Shoshana Articles
Cupid's Pulse Article: Love & Libations: Royal Reds for the Royal Celebrity Wedding

By Yolanda Shoshana

All eyes have been on the royal celebrity wedding between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Between the cameras, approvals from the Queen, and invitations, Markle will probably be thrilled to relax with a glass of wine during her wedding reception. While there are many charming things about Markle, what I like about her the most is her love of good Italian red wine. Imagine chilling with Meghan over a glass of red, talking about tiaras and, hopefully, she shares the secret to her roast chicken recipe.

“The Tig” was the name of Markle’s lifestyle blog that was named after Tignanello, a full-bodied red wine from Italy. Long story short, it’s a wine from Tuscany that is a part of what is called the Super Tuscan revolution, which took place in the 1970’s. The red blend is a combo of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc produced in the Chianti Classico region. This would suggest that Markle has a sophisticated palate. She is prepared for all of the fancy meals at the palace, not to mention the food she will share with Prince Harry as they travel the world together.

A bottle of Tignanello can run from $80 to $150. However, there are Tuscan wines up to par that are more affordable. The following is a list of five wines that I like to think of as “royal reds” from Tuscany and ones that I think would receive a thumbs up from Markle herself. After all, a bold Italian red is perfect to sip during fairy-tale weddings or for a date night with your prince or princess.

Check out these red wines worthy of any royal celebrity wedding! …Click to read more love and libation tips from Yolanda Shoshana!
