After a Kunstofffenster online dating of dating disasters and truly forgettable blind dates with friends of friends, I was ready to chuck in the Kunstofffenster online dating, buy a cat and surrender to the fact that I am a forever singleton. But after several months of bullying — sorry, I mean peer pressure — I finally gave in to joining the online dating game.
It can be quite daunting at first, bigging yourself up whilst trying to avoid sounding like an egotistical salesman. So here is a bunch of stuff that I would have appreciated when I started out on my online adventure — and it really is an adventure.
DO get to know the person as well you can via email before deciding to take things further. DO have an open mind; remember why you joined an online dating site.
Was it because you had exhausted all of your local resources? Or because you live in small town where everyone knows each other?
It could be all of the above. DO be prepared for being let down. It happens to the best of us. Only the once, mind. Dust yourself off and start again.
