Flirting for most Italians has never been a problem. Italian singles are known for charming the socks off tourists and locals alike. The thing is, until now, Italians have only been able to flirt with people they’ve accidentally come across, whether they’ve visited their local bar, or become friends with their friends. Today you can use an Italian dating site and find someone to flirt with anywhere in Italy.
Now, you might not want to flirt with someone on the other side of Italy, but if you live in a small town, it can be a perk to find someone to date who lives in a nearby town. Gives you more options.
If you, on the other hand, live in the big city online dating is a way of meeting people outside your social circle.
Plus, in real life you’re lucky if there are 200 singles in a bar you go to. Online you find thousands of singles in one place. So get online today and start flirting!

What to Expect from Italian Online Dating

People often ask us if you find love immediately through online dating in Italy? Dating is a numbers game, not always, but sometimes. Compare it to attending parties: you might have to attend a few parties and talk to a few different people before you find someone you have chemistry with. What’s more, some people seem interesting for the first ten minutes, or even the first hour, but once you get to know them better, the attraction fades.
The difference from real life is that instead of attending fifteen parties where there are fifteen singles at each party, there’s one big party with thousands of singles. So the odds greatly increase in your favor.
We always recommend you meet someone as soon as possible - exchange a few messages, maybe use the chat room to have a bit of a deeper conversation and to flirt some more, then give them a call to set up a date. Italian online dating needs to be taken offline before you know if there’s real chemistry. So don’t wait too long.

Italian Dating Sites: the Online Profile

Do you remember the days of Italian personals? Those little ads in magazines that told you about three things about a person and should somehow convince you to contact them to get to know them better? Well, online dating in Italy is a far cry from that.
The online profile contains a lot more information than an ad - you can (and should) upload a couple of profile pictures (avoid too many selfies and nudity) and write a great, interesting, dating profile. Keep your tone light; let your sense of humor shine through, but also give some clues as to who you really are. Check out other people’s profiles and what kind of profiles that stand out to you before you start writing. And if you don’t like writing - get a friend to help you out.
The dating site also allows you to send messages and use online chat rooms. That way you can exchange a few messages with someone before you call each other to set up a date.

Online Dating Do’s and Don’ts for Italian Singles

There are some dos and don’ts for Italian online dating to bear in mind:

  • do upload profile pictures
  • don’t use too many selfies
  • don’t give out personal information like home and work address, or credit card details online
  • do state what you are looking for in your profile, such as “I’m looking to meet someone kind, flirtatious, adventurous and with a kick ass sense of humour”
  • don’t state what you aren’t looking for, such as “I don’t want to meet someone dishonest, or who sits at home all day doing nothing”
  • do let your sense of humour shine through in your profile
  • do contact people who catch your eye
  • don’t start by flirting outrageously in your first message - gradually build it up
  • don’t be dishonest
  • do share what you truly love in life in your profile; passion is attractive
  • do be confident; be happy for your strengths, own your flaws, apologize for mistakes but never for who you are

There isn’t really that much difference between online and offline dating in Italy; dating offline follows most of the same rules as online...
