Dating Advice That Will Help You Find Love Online

1. Go offline. Screen your potential date, especially if it’s someone you’ve met online. Make a point to communicate with them offline, either through phone call, video chat, or text. From the conversations you have, evaluate whether it’s a good idea to meet this person face-to-face.

2. Be polite. Make a graceful exit if you’re having a bad date. You don’t really know this person or what they’re capable of, so don’t make a scene. Just quietly run for the hills. You also want to be polite because you wouldn’t appreciate it if someone was rude to you after a poor date. Be candid, don’t waste their time.

3. Say something. If you’re upset or uncomfortable with something that is going on during a date, bring it to their attention. Make sure you’re not chastising your date, use humor if you have to- but don’t sit there unsatisfied if your date is neglectful or rude. If they don’t respect what you have to say, it’s okay to remove yourself from the situation.
