How to Get the Most out of your Online Dating Experience

You’re not using an Online Dating App just to create a great profile. If you don’t make connections, then it isn’t worth your time. And the key to making good connections online is in how you communicate.

But communicating on an Online Dating site is different from most other forms of connecting. You’re reaching out to someone you’ve never met or spoken to before, so you have to find a way to break the ice. You want to get them to reply, but not be so pushy as to turn them off. It’s a delicate balance.

Then there are all the unique tools that dating sites make available to connect with others, like “winks,” “favorites,” “swipes,” and “mutual matches.” You’ll need to figure out what your site offers and then learn how to use the right tools to get responses. All the acronyms and lingo might be confusing at first, like BBW, F4M, NSA and IRL. Don’t worry, we’ll help you decode all those here!

We’ve collected a set of articles and guides with tips and insider knowledge to help you get the most out of your first interactions. With these tools, you’ll be on your way to meeting IRL (“In Real Life!”)
