Online Dating for Beginners

7. Pay Attention

When you see a profile you like, pay close attention to what the person is saying about themselves. Don’t just look at the pictures and go “oooh pretty!” See if you actually have anything in common. Find out if that person possesses any of your ideal traits or deal breakers. Because, what if you hit it off and go on a date, only to find out they were clear they like recreational drug use and vote for a political party you have never heard of. It will also give the impression that you’re attentive, which bodes well for first impressions.
