Diminishing stereotypes Until recently, online dating was marketed and viewed publicly as a way to find long-term romance, says David Evans, a consultant who authors the website Online Dating Insider.
The typical dater was recently divorced or had ended a serious relationship, and was disillusioned or intimidated by the scene in bars, church or social clubs.
Just like offline dating, relationships take time to form. Don’t say “Hey.” After you’ve been matched up with that special someone, don’t follow the 63% of mobile daters who start the chat messaging with “Hey.” Pick something interesting from their profile and start a dialogue around that. It simplifies and streamlines the online dating process with an easy-to-use i Phone app that helps people go on casual dates with the right people. Let’s Date boats over 1M actions on the app daily, and has helped put 60,000 couples together over the past two months.
So take advantage of it and plan something amazing. Don’t be a “Serial Dater.” Given the ease and convenience of most dating apps, setting up dates for coffee, lunch, drinks and dinner is a cinch. This can get expensive fast, not to mention you’ll develop a rep. Your boyfriend of three months shouldn’t get a breakup text message. Some quick background info on Let’s Date: It’s a free app that finds you the best dates by studying your reactions to dating profiles and actual dates to learn over time what your best match is.
