There are differences between online dating and real-life, face-to-face dating but there are some aspects that should never change. To be able to go to real-life dating, you must first establish yourself during the online dating process. If you have passed the online dating, only then you can look forward to real-life dating. She will be more excited than ever, because she will finally see you in real flesh and blood. If you have the following characteristics in you then moving from behind-the-monitor to holding-hands will be flawless. Just be natural and there is no need to pretend anything.
Be sincerely genuine all the time
It is always a good thing to be sincere every time. If you show sincerity during online dating, anyone will want to stretch the time they spend with you because they know that you never say or do anything that you do not mean.
Be careful with your humor
Many people get offended because of wrong choice of jokes. Laughter is one of the best medicines but not all jokes can be said. Different people have different tolerance levels for bad jokes. It is safer to limit yourself to the good and harmless ones. You can be safe with the humor that some magazines print because their publication is wholesome. It is not true that there are no funny clean jokes. You just have to find them. With clean humor, you are safe to make her laugh without hurting anyone’s feelings.
Give room to agree to disagree
Two different people may have two different opinions about something. The subject may have something to do with religion, politics or one’s approach in life. If you find your opinion differs from the person you are dating, do not push what you believe in. Respect the belief of the other and simply agree to disagree. If the other person believes that his/her thoughts violate your belief and it can affect the future of your children, like morality and salvation issues, it is better to separate out and find someone with the same frame of thinking. If you want to continue despite your differences, agree to disagree and go on with life.
Always tell the truth with tact
Being known as someone who always tells the truth builds your credibility. It will be easy to believe in anything you say even without verifying at that moment, simply because you have always built yourself to be truthful. Meaning, even if you are tortured, nothing can let you tell a lie. For you it is more important to be known as a truthful person. It does not mean you need to be tactless that you blurt out anything truthful even if other people’s feelings get hurt. You need not say “you are fat” when you can say “you are enjoying food a little too much,” which equates to the same meaning but in a little toned way. This way anyone you date, online or face-to-face, will enjoy spending time with you.
Be observant but do not assume
You may be what every other person of the opposite sex wanted for a date but that does not mean any of them are good for you. You have always thought about the feelings of others, but now it’s time to think about your own safety. Do not assume. People being nice to you may be genuinely nice or too nice to be scamming you. There will always be people who harm others, especially those who always give the benefit of the doubt. Be observant, but also be careful. Be aware of what is happening. Never assume. It does not hurt to confirm or wait for further signs. She may be sweet and too close for comfort but it does not always mean she wants to go to bed with you.
Online and face-to-face dating may differ in the sense that you can be with the person in real flesh and blood with face-to-face dating. The character that you project, though, will be brought from one arena to the other. No need to pretend for something that you are not. You can date from one arena to the next flawlessly and the other person will just love it because you possess good qualities.
