Online you. You have time to think, if

 Online dating is a common thing today, we hear about all the time, there are websites, apps and even numbers programmed just for it. While the commercials and other advertisements show us why we should do it, do we ever really stop for a moment and think why we should do this?You can be dating online at home, you can dress in your comfy, be at a reasonable time.Communicating over the internet, you have to be careful about what you say.  You can be thoughtful, rather than impulsive. If it is ever possible for you to be clever or witty, this is a time that favors you. You have time to think, if you don’t want to reply back immediately, you don’t have to.You need to start off knowing a lot about the other person. There is a picture, usually. (The picture is chosen, in order to gain someone’s attention . Also, the picture may not be recent, but is still helpful in getting an idea about how that person looks.) However, just because there’s a picture present, doesn’t mean that’s what they look like, it could be a scam or a trap. Other bits of information include age, level of education, employment history,  religious ideas,whether they smoke or not, interest in sports. Exaggeration is more common than outright deceit, although outright deceit certainly does occur from time to time. Still, this is a lot more information than you have about a blind date, let alone someone you meet at a public place such as a bar-b-q, grocery store or a bar.You need to find out even more about the other person before arranging to meet. Texting back and forth for a while tends to eliminate people who are insulting others and being disrespectful. A certain date may seem not right for you because of his/her use of language, thoughts on others and how they act towards others. Or for writing incorrectly like teens in a text message. You can approach a great number of people simultaneously. The rule, here, is that you can certainly date more than one person at a time, but you cannot sleep with more than one person at a time without breaking an unwritten rule and appearing in the minds of most people to  treat sex too casually.There is some reason to think that the other person will know enough about you by the time you meet not to want to reject you out of hand, which happens sometimes in blind dates and dating in other contexts.    Like the info above, you will likely not find success immediately like finding the right place to call home, finding the right car, finding the perfect job for you or even learning a new skill. It is important to realize and accept that any single dating opportunity is not likely to result in a long-term relationship. If the first dates aren’t successful, it does not mean that you are unappealing or that you are too picky. Unless you are extraordinarily lucky, the first ten or twenty people you meet—or thirty or forty—are not likely to constitute a good fit to you. Finding the right person is like trying to complete a video game, there will be server times where you lose, you feel like giving up, you get frustrated, but sooner or later, you beat it and you win!If you are really serious about dating, you need to join a website. You read the profiles of other people looking for love and you put up your profile and information about yourself. That profile should be honest. (Any lies will surface sooner or later.)Do not come across as a bragger or someone who is full of themselves. Do not come across as someone who loves everything in the world from classical music to sky-diving. Do not pretend to being more exciting than you are. Try to come across as a serious person who likes to do things and is interested in new things. Seeming to be sophisticated is not appealing. Since everyone has a tendency to exaggerate, try to seem genuine.Read other people’s profiles with that in mind. You are likely to find four or five people who you seem to have things in common with. You reach out to them, however, no one replies to you for awhile and then suddenly one or two do reply but they seem discouraged, like they’ve given up on relationships. While You are, hopefully, undeterred. Of the next batch of people you reach out to, two respond. You text back and forth with them. One of them who has pretended to be well-educated makes a bad grammatical error, and compounds the offence by telling an off-color joke. The other person, however, seems okay. The two of you talk on the telephone.You arrange to meet for only an hour or two for coffee or a drink. Since many of these dates are immediately unsatisfactory, there is no reason to make the experience last any longer than necessary. If the two of you are getting along great, you can change those plans.These first dates only work out about one in three times. The other times will be when the relationship feels one sided and isn’t working out. This reminds us of people we know, some will like you and others will not. You could meet many people with your same interests and hobbies and perspective on things. But with whatever reason, still chooses to not like you or give you a full chance. Now looking at the other side of the coin, there will be people who will adore you and love and think you’re amazing and terrific and a great person and would like to see you again.Perhaps one out of every four people you date two or three times will seem to you to be so interesting and so much fun, you begin to think the two of you can have a long-term relationship. The rest peter out. Out of those relationships that last a month or two, perhaps one will really get serious—to the point where you both consider that maybe—just possibly—if you are lucky— you might develop a permanent attachment. And out of these, perhaps only one out of two or three eventually lead to marriage. This type of happiness is from someone who is usually dedicated to you and doesn’t seem discouraged at all. Unfortunately, even after getting married, one out of two couples separate eventually.This whole process is disappointing and not pleasant if you enter into it solely with the idea of finding someone to marry. The proper attitude is to look forward on this next date simply to having a good time. You can always have a fun time dating, even when the person you are with is plainly not going to be someone you want or will  marry. Other then that, it is like entering a hallway and not seeing the other door for some time.  You can get bored with the same behavior , it might be like doing the same rhythm of a song everyday for the rest of your life
