Sheffield is no small place, which is great because there are more singles. On the other hand, it’s pretty spread out and chances of meeting someone outside your social circle isn’t all that great. Of course, there’s the bar and clubbing scene and you might run into someone at the gym, but these places are still not ideal. It’s not like everyone there will be single, nor will they all approach you, or you feel comfortable approaching them.
Online dating sites like flirt.com hope to amend this by creating a place where singles in Sheffield can meet and mingle. Here it’s natural to reach out to someone and start flirting - it’s what people are there for. And if there isn’t mutual interest, there’s not any awkward moment - there’s simply just no reply. It makes dating a whole lot easier.
Online dating websites make life as single more enjoyable as you can flirt any time you like. There’s no need to wait till Friday night in the hopes of meeting someone new. You can flirt with someone on your way to work, or at lunch break. It basically allows you to take control of your dating life and meet as many singles as you please.
The main ingredient when it comes to dating is you. Online that translates to a great profile - some nice shots of yourself showing off doing the things you love in life and a profile that catches the essence of who you are. If you aren’t a great writer or can’t tell a good photography from a not so good one (we aren’t all artists), then get some friends to help you out. And remember that friends are bias too - better to get the opinion of two friends as opposed to just the one.
You will also need to be decent at communicating through messaging. When first approaching someone through an online dating website, tell them something you liked about their profile and relate it to something you have in common. You can compliment their photos, but don’t go for it full out in the first message.
If you don’t much like writing? Suggest meeting up for a coffee or drink as soon as possible. Whilst flirting can be fun online, you won’t really know if there’s chemistry till you meet up in real life anyway.
Beyond anything - have fun. See it as an opportunity to meet new people. Some will end up as your friends, some you will date, others won’t be a match at all. Flow with it!
