It’s exciting when you finally come across someone who has potential when you are dating online. Someone who sparks your interest and someone whose interest is just as sparked for you. The first date may just be around the corner. Now, all you have to do is wait and see if it’s one for the books or just a really bad date.
Prevent A Bad Date From Happening With These Signs
It all sounds really exciting, but you have to take a good look at the situation or at what’s happening before you ask or confirm for a first date. There may be red flags that you’re missing to see. These red flags could mean that the potential first date might be a bad date in the making:
You might have come across someone who is your ideal type, but if the conversation is as dry as the Sahara Dessert, consider it a red flag. One-word responses or taking things out of context are awkward enough to handle. Imagine that applied on your first date. That would even be more awkward.
Trouble Locking In A Time For A Date
So you met someone who you think is a great match for you. This person is well-rounded, and you have great conversations together. But, this person can’t seem to lock in the time for a date. For example, does your online chatmate always say that he or she isn’t available on the dates you give? It’s possible that this person doesn’t want to take things further.
Have you noticed your chat date has been sharing more than he or she should be? It may seem harmless but do consider it a red flag. There’s usually something wrong with a person telling you his or her past when you barely know each other.
Coming On Too Strong
You will meet different people in the online dating world. However, pray that you won’t meet people who always make the conversation more intimate than it should be. If you are into short-term relationships or hook-ups, then you might go for this type of chatting. But, if you’re in for the serious, long-term relationship, it’s best to avoid going on the first date.
Make sure to memorize these signs as you date online. Never say yes if you spot even just one so you can escape or prevent a bad date from happening. For more tips, check out other posts on our blog.
