Top 5 Dating Advice for Grown Adults: What it means to be dating in the digital world

5. Use a recent, BUT FLATTERING, photo

This tip sounds like a no-brainer, but it really isn’t. So many, online daters put up photos when they were skinnier, had more hair, had less hair, from a bad angle, with bad lighting, with too much crap in their background, with stains on their shirt, in bed as soon as they wake up, a group shot, with too many filters etc. People are shallow, so your profile picture needs to be on point!

4. Put time into your bio

You’re dating online, so let people get to know you ONLINE! Short, simple profiles are not appealing to prospective mates. Don’t rush through building your profile by saying, “I don’t like talking about myself. Msg me if you want to know more.” *swipes left*

3. Don’t let 2 weeks go by without a video or phone call 

Maybe you’ve seen the television program “Catfish”? #ENOUGHSAID

2. Don’t be afraid to send the first message 

If you see something you like, say something. If you’re lurking on someone’s profile, don’t be a creep– send a friendly message and tell them hi.

SN: If you haven’t paid for websites like POF and OkCupid, then other members can see that you viewed them.

1. Be yourself! 

Leave the stunting to the rappers. If you want to get to know somebody, then you have to show your personality and let them know the real you. Game recognizes game, playa!
