8 tips to attract more women online
1. First, forget about old stereotypes
If you browsed the internet in the early 2000s, you probably are familiar with the old rules of it.
The number one rule was to never share your personal information and never, ever meet someone you knew from the internet – how much things have changed!
Nowadays, with social media and dating apps that old rule is nothing but an ancient stereotype, one you should forget about.
Dating apps are common and there’s no stigma surrounding it.
A lot of couples are happy when they explain they met on Tinder or OkCupid.
Dating apps are no longer the last resort, they are as common as going to the bar or meeting a friend’s friend.
There’s plenty of women to meet online and no need to shy away from them!
2. Second, figure out why you’re here
Once you’ve realized online dating is okay, it’s time to set some goals.
Do you want a serious relationship?
Are you looking for some fun and nothing else?
Ask yourself what you want before you go out there.
You’ll talk to far more women online than you would at a bar, so you need to know what you’re after or you’ll waste a lot of time.
Sometimes, not being able to attract women online is due to talking to the wrong crowd.
Know what you want and go after it. If you are chatting with someone who doesn’t want the same as you, you might want to move on!
3. Understand the game you’re playing
Online dating isn’t the same as face-to-face dating.
Some things are easier online, but there are also other challenges you’ll have to face.
Trolls, catfishing, and bots are but a few of the things you need to watch out for.
At first, you’ll have a hard time dealing with them, but soon enough you’ll be quick to identify them.
On the other hand, you can use online dating to your advantage if you know what you’re doing.
This is a numbers game – and one where rejection doesn’t hurt as much! Message as many women as you can.
If you focus your efforts on a woman alone, you’re playing to lose.
4. Show your best – and keep it honest
The very first thing a woman will see (and pay attention to) is your picture.
You need to use the best of what you’ve got to create your profile.
Using no picture, group pictures, or anything that doesn’t feature you as a protagonist is a waste of time – both yours and hers.
If you have no great pictures to show, it’s time to take some.
Use good lighting, the right angle, and show your best.
There’s only one rule: don’t lie.
Don’t use someone else’s pictures, don’t Photoshop your face so much you look like someone else, or any other dishonest move.
Fake or dishonest pictures might get you to meet a woman in real life, but you’ll get rejected soon after.
Keep it honest!
5. Remember pictures are half the effort
Let’s say you have the best pictures on your profile – that’s only half the battle won!
You need to write a description that will wow her away as much as your pictures do.
The way you write your profile description has to match your goals (remember tip number 2!).
Nobody is dating online to read long manifestos, your description should be short, witty, and to the point.
What you write is up to you – as long as you avoid generic stuff. Be original!
Think about it like this: your pictures will lead her to your description; your description will make her talk to you.
6. The right tone is better than the right words
Before you talk to her, you need to understand something.
This is where most men fail.
The words you use are important – but how you use them is key.
Using the right tone when you’re texting is tricky.
When you’re face-to-face, you can rely on voice tonality, body language, and a few other things.
Online, not so much.
Tread the waters carefully and, at the same time, playfully until you know what tone to use with her.
If you’re too serious and she’s getting bored, be funnier.
If you’re throwing one too many jokes and she’s not responding to them, get more serious.
Sometimes, it’s better to drop it altogether and try later.
Maybe she didn’t reply because she had a rough day at work.
Keep that in mind!
7. Your objective isn’t having long conversations
When it comes to online dating, texting is a means to an end.
Don’t mistake it for the end itself! If she’s talking to you all the time and you feel there’s a connection, it’s time to take it forward.
Don’t get caught up in the mistake of talking to someone for days or even weeks before you meet.
Your number one goal is to set up a date and see where you go from there, nothing else.
If she is reluctant to meet, you can try again later but you should also consider other women.
8. Have fun!
At the end of the day, you can’t take online dating too seriously.
Take it as a little game you play when you’re bored with your phone.
Otherwise, you’re bound to have a bad time.
Remember, online dating is a numbers game.
You’ll message hundreds of women – and, at the same time, women will get hundreds of messages.
You can’t take it too personally when they don’t reply to you!
As long as you have the best pictures, the right profile, and know how to text right, you’re bound to get plenty of dates.
If you’re not there yet, see what you can fix and keep trying – but always have fun with it.
If you’re not enjoying it, you won’t get better at it (yes, online dating is a skill!).
Remember to have fun with it – and other women will have fun with you!
