Online dating advice for seniors, what to say when you first meet someone online?

You’ve finally made the step into the online dating community. The world of online dating is filled with people like you: keep that in mind when you tread on your first steps into the online dating world. But what do you need to say when you first meet someone online?

Keep it positive
First of all you should keep your first message to the potential love of your life very positive. Ask what the other’s interests are; ask what makes their world go round. Taking an interest in the other is of vital importance in coming across as a positive, open-minded person and is often seen as a key aspect in taking it further. And let’s be honest, if someone would ask a lot about you and take a general interest in your life, wouldn’t you be much more enthusiastic about that person than if he or she would only talk about their selves?

Don’t go too fast

Be yourself! It will happen for you!

You might get the impression of the other person that he or she is a great match with you, and that you have already found the love of your life in the online dating sphere. But keep in mind that going to fast might have a counterproductive effect on what you’re trying to achieve. Don’t ask her or him out on a physical date after your second conversation. Things might feel good, but why the hurry? You should take things slow, so that you can assess what kind of person you’re dealing with and if she or he is the one.

First contact on an online dating site is always an exciting thing. You might have found the one, and that’s the question everyone on a dating site asks himself or herself after that first flirt or message. When you first meet someone online it however is essential that you need to do things on your own pace.

Don’t take it too fast however, and keep it positive!

That way, you’ll ensure that the potential love of your life doesn’t slip through your hands!
