Real life dating vs online dating
She's a cliche lover of wine, sushi, all things Parisian and spiking her coffee with Baileys.
You all may remember the unexpectedly popular post I had last time on AM asking if people would use a hypothetical dating site where only women could initiate messaging (for those curious for an update, I've decided I don't want to make it).
In other words, most people will only come across a limited number of people in their day to day lives.
Many of them will already be taken and some will be single.
Your initial attraction is genuinely apparent in real life. You won’t wonder as much if the reason they’re not replying to a text is because they’re chatting up some other girl online or on a date with one (although that could happen to anyone).
You’ll just feel more at ease overall with the relationship progression and less of a sense of urgency for assurances because you’ll have taken the cataloging mentality out of the equation, which is a brutal reality to online dating — you’re never truly focused on one person at a time. Meeting face-to-face right off the bat instantly sets the vibe for natural development of not just the relationship, but of who you are, because he already saw who you are in person.
Online dating and real life dating are quite similar in certain ways.
Online dating deals with real live people interacting in an online medium.
Due to the sheer volume of romantic dating prospects on online dating sites, people can often get distracted by it all.You might want to hold off on your Tinder swiping (or at least take a break from it) to try your luck in 3D.You have a great “how we met” story, which is rare now.You stop perusing your online “catalog.” When you don’t meet online, there’s less temptation to continue swiping (just in case) because you’ve gotten a sense of who the person is in real life right off the bat.You get their true physical appearance (not a 5-year-old picture or perfectly angled selfie) and overall vibe from the moment you start chatting.
