BE REAL IN THE MESSAGES YOU SEND
Be mindful in your first messages to someone. In real life you wouldn’t introduce yourself with your phone number, email address, Instagram handle, Snapchat or FaceBook or any other social media page or profile, so don’t do that here either.
PurposelyDating.com is not the place to promote external links in your messages or on your profile. Same goes for solicitation or commercial promotion of any kind.
This is very important in the dating arena regardless of meeting a person on Purposely Dating.com or in the grocery store. Be Protected at all times in public while on a dating. During the communication process set the stage and tone of the date; well lighted location, public place, have an exit plan if the date does fill right or make that first date location a local coffee shop during the daytime. Be protected is not just physical safety it extends to emotional and safe sex safety.
Transportation: On your first or ten date have your own transportation to and from the date. It is best to play it safe and drive yourself to the date. If you need to opt out of the date early you can do so with feeling trapped on the date.
Safety Back-up Plan: Another helpful tip is to always, always tell a friend or family member where you’re going and to whom you are going with; name, photo, e-mail, car, and any other identifiers. Additionally, have a friend ready to pick you up just in case, or a taxi on speed-dial.
Additional Tool To Support A Safe Dating Experience: The Noonlight app has a built-in panic button to hit in case of emergencies. A neat feature of this APP is you can add friends to your Safety Network so they can request a check-in. If you don’t respond, the app will help your friend(s) trace your steps and send police if you’re in danger.
Being TRUTHFUL in your communication is very important in the dating communication; I know this to be true! I have been on many dating websites and got “Catfished,” many times. If you start out not being truthful you can’t move forward in dating someone. Move past insecurity and ask the tough questions during the first conversation but keep it lighthearted in nature. After the dating has start don’t go long in wondered how the person, you’re dating feels about you; ask! Didn’t fear the appears of being insecure, needy, or pushy because the opposite you want know the truth about how your dating is going and you risk not knowing how to course correct?
BE FEARLESS – WIN FRIENDS – TALK
Why can’t we be more relaxed and free-spirit when talk to date interest? What are we afraid of? What danger do we seek to protect ourselves from what seeking out someone to date? From my research conversations, we have found that most singles give entirely too much weight or meaning to the outcome of each dating interaction. When people take risks and show up real, they get lighter, brighter, more radiant, and more magnetically attractive.
BE PURPOSELY DATING
Purposely dating online is simple if you already know what you are looking for in a relationship and know how to select the right person to date. There are many desirable singles on Purposely Dating.com looking for meaningful relationships so be proactive when contacting a member. If you know your “deal-breakers” and “must have” then don’t communicate with those that does not fall within your purpose. It is just that simple. If you wish to increase the likelihood of meeting the right person, consider seeking out one of our Dating Experts and purchase one of our eBooks to help you create an appealing profile that compliment your personality. However, the most important part of finding the right person is for you to do the self-care, self-esteem, and self-worth improvement work.
