Three unwritten online dating rules

by Joanne Adams January 15, 2019

For an unknown reason, people like to establish unwritten rules in social and professional life. If you follow these rules, you are accepted. If you break them, you become an outsider. This also applies to online dating. Here are three unwritten online dating rules you should follow to increase your chances of finding love online.

Completed profile is a must

If you joined a dating site and didn’t have time to fill in your profile, don’t be surprised if women don’t respond to you. It’s cool that you uploaded a profile picture, but it’s not enough. Very few women on modern dating platforms are so desperate that they are ready to communicate with someone of whom they know nothing. So find 15 minutes to fill in all the fields of your profile.

Talk about exes are forbidden

Most grown-up people have an ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend who broke their hearts. But the worst thing you can do is to share your feelings about your tragic breakdown with your potential mate on a dating site. Nobody wants to date with a man who is hung up on his ex. Forget about your past if you're going to build your happy future.

You don’t have to answer each message you receive

If you get a message from a person who is not your type, it’s OK to leave this message unanswered. You don’t have to communicate with everyone who is interested in you. And you also don’t have to get upset when you don’t get a response from the woman you like. It doesn’t mean that something is wrong with you. It just means that you are not her type.
