Online Internet Dating Tips and Advice

6 Mins read

An online internet dating site is (in my opinion) the easiest way to find a partner in today’s world. With Try Know, the ever-increasing technology aids, you can correspond with someone and see them in real time. It used to be that an internet dating site was taboo, and people didn’t trust it or the quality of people they might meet. But even so, you run the same risks as if you were to meet the person face-to-face. What is the difference? Well, you can’t smell a person through an internet dating site!

This article was written to give free dating tips and dating advice to unfamiliar internet users. Or maybe you’ve had bad experiences and wonder why you are running into “duds.” My dating advice is not aimed mainly at either men or women but looks at both sides. I am not a psychologist or therapist, and all dating advice and tips are my thoughts from internet dating experiences. Those are just a few reasons; people will benefit differently based on their character and personality. The precautions would also relate to conventional dating practices and not only internet dates.

Internet Dating

So what are some of the drawbacks of Internet dating?

As with the benefits, internet dating has other downsides that aren’t listed and will vary from person to person.

So who is the best internet dating service? That’s a hard question to answer because there are so many variables and no one best service. I say the best dating site is the one you find what you are looking for. Luckily, most are free to join, although you will get limited functionality and program features. But at least you can get an idea of the types or kinds of people joining that particular internet dating service. There are increasingly more online dating services specific to certain groups like – people in the service, Christian dating, pet lovers dating, and so on. The major dating sites will have these people; you must sift through the members to determine if someone shares your passions or hobbies. What it boils down to is that the more people to select from, the better your chances of finding a match.

So, does Internet dating work? Yes! It did for me. I lived in the US and met my wife, who lived in China. We corresponded for six months, sent pictures to each other, and finally met when her company came to the US on a business trip. We hit it off, and for the next year, she came down to visit, and a couple of months later, I went to China to see her and meet her parents and family. Remember that it could be expensive to go this route because of airfare and things. Lastly, she had another business trip scheduled, and we got married during that trip.


Marrying someone from another country is not as easy as it seems. There are visa and passport issues, US Immigration forms and regulations, and more. Most big internet dating sites will have a section to help with immigration issues. Things went fairly smoothly for us, and we now have a beautiful 7-month-old son. Internet dating doesn’t have to be about marriage; it will differ for everyone. Maybe you want someone to hang out with on the weekends, go to dog shows or a social outing, or go white water rafting, but your friends aren’t interested. Many people want to make friends and not label it as dating but as companionship and someone to talk to. Other people may wish for a companion because they are going on a trip to another area and would like a friend or someone to show them around at that destination.

What it boils down to is – What are your needs and wants?

I can offer some free dating tips and advice based on my experience that helped me find my life’s love, and general recommendations are listed below.

  • Be honest when you communicate.
  • Speak from the heart, don’t try to be someone you’re not
  • Sign-up for more than one online dating site
  • Choose a general “big name” place.
  • Search Google or Yahoo by typing “dating dogs,” “dating armed forces,” “dating Christian,”…etc.

Only pay for the sites you feel have more than five profiles that match what you are looking for; remember, most are free to sign up, but you will have limited capability. Stay away from free online dating sites; you get what you pay for. The more serious a person is, the more money they will pay to find quality people. That means if someone on a particular dating site has the highest membership (Gold Member), they are serious about finding someone. 2nd to the highest level (silver) may be serious, but you don’t have much money to spend.

Anything less is, in my opinion, “gamers” and just passing the time. HOWEVER! In countries or areas that are poor and underdeveloped, they can’t afford to pay the membership fee. They probably use a computer at school, a library, or friends, so you must be extra patient. Please avoid ads that don’t have pictures, or ensure they will send you a picture. Some people don’t want to be seen in fear of their friends, colleagues, or family seeing them on the internet. That’s perfectly understandable; ensure you get REAL pictures once you get to know the person.

Send and receive many pictures; insist on casual setting photographs, not professionally retouched ones. Be patient; calling can be difficult if they live in another time zone. If they live in another country, get a calling card or use a webcam and microphone. Since my wife didn’t have a webcam, my phone bill averaged $1200 monthly, and I didn’t know about calling cards. Call your phone company and get a plan with better international rates. Today, there are more options, like VOIP (voice over IP) pc2phone, which’s a lot cheaper, and the sound quality is much better now.

When you meet, Ladies, make sure it’s with one or more friends, even for the first few dates. Safety first, and if the guy can’t understand that, that’s a RED flag! Ladies, purchase some books on pickup lines, how to seduce a woman, and those sorts of things. If your correspondence contains much of what you find in a book, then the person may not be sincere. If you’re tired of seeing losers, this is your wake-up call to discover why. Me, buy books on how to treat a lady. Buy books on how to seduce a woman, but only use them after knowing they want to be drawn by you (later in the relationship).

Be Honest! – If you’re serious and want a life-long mate. Be upfront; put EVERYTHING on the table. Too many surprises will kill the relationship. Don’t try to be what you think the other person wants. You can’t put on a show forever. Get a webcam so that you can see and hear the real person. Sometimes you get a glimpse of their room. Is it messy? Are there naked people hung up on the wall? It can also be a lot of fun once you are closer and can be more intimate. BE CAREFUL! What you do on camera can be recorded and exposed if things don’t work out. List things you do not like or won’t compromise on. For example, you dislike it when your partner drinks too much, do drugs, or something like that. Don’t ask these questions, but have them elaborate on when they had a night out with the guys/girls. Just keep a mental note to yourself.

List the key things you like that make you feel adored and desired. You like feeling pampered by getting breakfast in bed. You want it when doors are opened for you. You want it when girls indulge you. You like it when girls make you feel special. How does the other person perceive what making someone feel special is? What is your definition of joy and happiness? Be Honest! I keep saying that, but it’s the most important thing!

If you’ve been burned once too many times, do a background check on the person. You can find out if they have been married, divorced, in jail, lawsuits against them, and things of that nature. It costs a little money but can save you years of heartache and disappointment. Some may feel this is an invasion of privacy or a sign of not trusting the other person. I say it’s a matter of feeling secure, and if the other person can’t understand that, they are hiding something or don’t care about how insecure you may be feeling. Another RED flag! Online dating has evolved to where it’s commonplace to check on people.

  • Have fun on your date but pay attention to
  • Do they open doors for you
  • Do they talk negatively about too many things?
  • Are their eyes busy wandering rather than focusing on you?
  • Are there too many lines or quotes from the dating books?

You may want to keep a scorecard or write notes immediately after the date. Just ensure you destroy them all when you see that person exclusively. Nobody wants to know they are being compared, but it’s a good way to ensure the person has all the qualities that are truly important to you. To be on the safe side, never write down anything relating to sex. The technique can be learned if the person is willing to satisfy you. Talk about it; if they aren’t interested in what turns you on, that’s another RED flag. Let’s face it; sex is an important part of a relationship. For some, it isn’t, but for the majority, it is. It’s also a two-way street. To get, you must give; if you give, you should get. It’s that simple.
