Things I learned

Posted in Uncategorized by antisociology on September 6, 2011

Things I’ve learned about myself and (online) dating in the last four weeks:

  • I actually can¬†get dates. Better yet, some of them are actually willing to go on a second!
  • It’s okay to go out with lots of people. In fact, it’s a great idea within limits.
  • People don’t always resemble their online dating profiles, in both good and bad ways.
  • Anyone you have a bit of emotional/personal/intellectual connection with is worth a second date.
  • Procrastination when it comes to sending the first e-mail or texting/calling after the first date is bad.
  • Short first messages seem to work better than longer messages.
  • Planning and scheduling are hard.
  • Take it slow, keep it fun, let ’em have some space.
