Be also careful with spelling mistakes! Grammar and spelling errors are a complete no-no!

Make the conversation flow by asking questions that can reveal if there might be chemistry between you two.

Get familiar with each other, but leave some personal secrets for your first date!

Once you feel confident enough to ask your online date out, make sure you propose a first-date plan that is so fun that it can’t be refused!
