Chatting with someone in Leicester isn’t that hard. Once you’ve met them and found the opportunity to chat with them, that is. The truth is, all singles you’d love to meet won’t hang out at the same places you do. Nor will they necessarily be approachable when you meet them.
Online dating offers a solution to all that: it removes the limitations of time and space. To meet someone online you don’t both have to be online at the same time - if the other party is offline you simply send a message, as opposed to chat with them directly. You don’t have to be at the same place physically either - they can be in a neighbouring town, or a different area of your city. You both have to sign up to dating sites, but a lot of people are catching onto this - today ca. 100 million people are doing online dating.
When you approach someone online there’s no awkwardness either - no trying to figure out if they’re currently approachable. If you send them a message you tell them why their profile caught your eye, ask them a question about something in their profile and tell them you’d love to hear from them. If they’re online you tell them they have an amazing profile and you’d love to chat. Simples.
Chatting to someone online is nice, meeting them in real life is even nicer. Online you get to know one side of their personality, offline you get to know another.
It’s easy to fill in the gaps when chatting to someone online - you build a picture of who you think they are. The problem with that is that the picture is never entirely true to reality. Not even if you video chat with someone.
The best thing to do is to see it like you would a meeting at a party - chat with someone anywhere from ten minutes to two hours before you decide if you’d like to swap numbers with them. Then set up a date, or call each other to set up a date. Some people prefer getting on the phone after chatting for five minutes as they dislike chatting, others hate phone calls and prefer to just chat, then meet in real life.
When meeting, make it a no pressure quick drink or coffee in Leicester. You’ll both have a bit of nerves and be adjusting to how you see each other in real life. This can kill off attraction. So rather keep it short, leave room for doubt and meet again a second time. Unlike the saying, first impressions rarely last.
Chat to lots of people, have fun and meet up with the ones you like!
