Dating etiquette and rules to follow
I haven’t had any success finding a guy close to “Mr.
Right” so I’ll just leave it to meeting friends through friends or have the casual run-in. Like I said there’s a mobile app I use and I can casually flip through pictures/ profiles and message them at my leisure.
Remember, just because someone has different interests than you and/or isn’t your typical “type” doesn’t mean that you should automatically write him or her off.
After all, while it’s imperative that you don’t settle, it’s equally imperative that you give someone else a chance—just as you’d hope others would do for you in return. An additional rule when it comes to dating is to keep yourself out of harm’s way.
I use a mobile app and it’s limited because well since the screen is so small so you have to really hit the best points to get someone’s attention.
Online dating for gay men has been a popular way to mingle but not get a serious relationship out of it.
I have the patience to find the right guy, online dating is for the impatient. I’m not in a hurry to fall in love but I do like messaging back and forth and having casual conversation with a guy because there’s no pressure if we both just want to have a little fun via txt. Personally I find them to be a bit frustrating, as there is no real “buy in” or connection made.
And if you can’t meet in person, then what’s the point? The purpose of online dating is to move conversation OFFline.
When you’re dating someone new, it’s also important that you move your connection forward at a rate with which you’re totally comfortable.
In other words, you shouldn’t feel pressured or obligated to move faster than you’d like to and/or engage in any activity that you’re not ready for, and that goes for both in and out of the bedroom.
By doing so, you have an instant point of connection (your friend), and somewhat of an assurance that you will be on the same wavelength (because people that are friends tend to be similar on some level).
I’ve yet to see a computer algorithm match people the right way (maybe because it hasn’t worked for me) so I’ve been stubborn about trying to pursue many matches whenever I get alerts.
