Boundaries of casual dating
And according to Spira, it should be sooner rather than later.
Exchanging two or three e-mails is a good way to get a sense of each other's personality.
Your Profile Picture It can seem difficult to stand out in the vast sea of online daters; the best way to do so is by creating a great profile—and be sure to always include a photo.If you show up and your date looks nothing like his photo––and this does happen––don't run screaming for the exit.The best thing you can do is be polite and keep the date short, says Spira. "You know he looks nothing like his photo; he knows he looks nothing like his photo. Becoming Exclusive Since being on an online dating site puts you out there for everyone to contact, it can be hard to know when you have become exclusive with a partner. If you broach the topic and he says that he isn't ready to pull down his profile, Spira recommends saying something like, "Well, I am. I guess I'll keep mine up as well and continue dating."9.You need to show your interest right away; in the world of online dating you never know how many women one man has contacted, and how quickly the others may express their interest.
If you contact someone and haven't heard back in a week, it's OK to send a second e-mail.After that, have a phone conversation—trade cell phone numbers, never home numbers.
