I’ve heard of people who have emailed a few times, then gone away for a weekend. Meet in a crowded place and somewhere you’re familiar with, but not in a bar that you go to all the time Give it time Whatever you do you must go on 10 dates before you give up on internet dating.
People have said to me after one date, 'He’s not right; it’s not the right site for me,’ and I think, 'No, no, no, just give it a chance!There are people who go into it expecting to find love with the first person you speak to.Or expecting to have a profile, never speak to people and expect to be chased. You need to get out there, talk to and actually meet people!’ A first date from a site isn’t like a first date after meeting someone at a party – you haven’t actually met yet, so your first meeting is to see whether you want to go on a first date.I like to call them pre-dates Put it in the diary You need to be prepared to go on pre-dates with lots and lots of people, and I suggest you book in more than one at a time.When we started out over 10 years ago, there was more stigma attached to online dating.
