Dating involves an unwritten code of conduct, more commonly referred to as’ Dating Etiquette.’ The internet may have revolutionized age-old courtship rituals and created a completely new etiquette for online dating, but just because you’re sitting behind a computer, it doesn’t mean you should give them up completely. Dating etiquette still applies online, so here are some basic principles that still need to be adhered to in order to succeed.
What not to do in a first message I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people (and they’re always men) crashing and burning with the first response of an inane’ want to talk’-just those two words, nothing else. The obvious answer to this response is’ no,’ because quite honestly, if’ want to talk’ is the best you can come up with in an attempt to stand out from the crowd, then you will get nowhere easily.

Your first message, your first contact point with someone you like on-site look, needs to stand out and catch their eyes. So refrain from the likes of’ hi beautiful,” you look nice,’ and’ let’s chat,’ and put a thought-out message together that won’t end up in the trash. Something that says’ Wow, I took the time to read your profile, we seem to have things in common and if you like my profile too, I would like to hear more about you’ (not actually though!). Can’t believe anything? Not a question. Either answer or send a smile to one of the many icebreakers set by the proprietor of the profile. To make your first contact as smooth as possible, Katoto added those features.
How to say’ thank you, but no thank you’ If someone approached you in a bar, you weren’t interested in just ignoring them, wouldn’t you? Very definitely you’d think of a nice way of letting them down, like’ sorry I’m not looking for a relationship’ or’ I’ve always had a kind of boyfriend / girlfriend’ issue. Sadly, you can’t get away with these lies just because you’re looking for a relationship, because, let’s face it, and that’s all why you’ve come here.
And, don’t just dismiss them if someone approaches you and they aren’t your kind, or check your boxes. Respond to them in a way to which you wish to be answered. Just be respectful and politely let them down by saying’ sorry, you are out of my age range’ or’ I’m searching for someone who lives a little closer’ and then wish them well in their continuing quest.
How to cope if you receive the message of’ thanks, but no thanks’ From time to time you may get the occasional’ thanks, but no thanks.’ Now, I’ve seen people almost respond badly to this kind of communication in a child-like way’ oh well I didn’t fancy you anyway.’ Say, do not do whatever you do. It just will make you look stupid.
