The single life is meant to be a happening one. You’re supposed to have fun. Meet a ton of other singles. Flirt. Date. Play. Have a good time till you find the love of your life.
In real life single life can, unfortunately, get real boring. We don’t necessarily run into the kind of eligible singles we’d like to through our friends or at our local bar or pub. When we do run into them, they aren’t necessarily approachable. That woman/man at the other end of the bus who’s looking real cool, but talking on their cellphone can be a bit hard to approach.
Online dating removes some of these problems. Suddenly thousands of singles are available in one place where you can easily approach them. If they don’t want to talk, you don’t hear back from them. If they want to chat, the conversation starts then and there. It’s easy.
Online you can meet singles in Sunderland and neighbouring areas; opening up a larger dating scene. You can approach people on a Monday night when you’re too tired to go out, or when you’re on a business trip to New York. For travellers online dating is a godsend.
Get online. Start having fun.
Approaching someone online is fairly straight forward. If they are online at the same time you are and available to chat you can send them a quick message saying you found their profile amazing and would love to chat. If they’re offline, you can send them a message telling them their profile caught your eye (and mentioning why) and asking a question about something relating to their profile so you get the conversation going.
Remember to be polite, flirtatious and humorous. Don’t go too full on too soon though with the flirting - you want the tension to build up gradually. And genuinely take an interest in whom you are talking to - it’s the best way of getting them to open up.
See an online chat room, or messaging service, as a bar, or party. You meet, you chat for a while, then you decide if you want to swap numbers and meet up for a drink or coffee at a time when you can sit down in Sunderland and get to know each other better. You don’t want to keep chatting online forever; it will only lead to you creating an idea of the other person that’s not necessarily true. Meet up so the real fun can begin instead!
