Online chatting or online flirting should be smooth and continuous. If you have to leave the computer, make sure you make the other person know, and try to keep the online conversation at a pace as similar as possible as a conversation face to face

4 # Go straight to the point

We live lives in which speed is one of the most precious good we have… online dating is sometimes a bit similar and people don’t tend to loose too much time on conversations and other profiles unless they are really interested in them. That is why whether you want a long-term relationship or a summer romance you should be very clear from the beginning.

5 # Don’t use the computer as a shield

Online dating is great, you can do it at any time, from anywhere and dressing as you want…however some people think that everything is allowed and that they can just hide behind the computer and build a confidence that they wouldn’t have in real life. While this could be a fantastic way of facing fears, it is still quite important that the person your date is meeting online turns out to be the same person your date will meet on your first date ! Otherwise imagine the fiasco !

To sum up, embrace yourself, be proactive and authenticity ! The rest of the job you can leave it to the magic of the dating websites….
