The Fears of Online Dating & How to Overcome Them

The Fears of Online Dating & How to Overcome Them

For those who date online, the fear of online dating may sound like a natural contradiction. One might think that if you can send a message to someone completely anonymously in the online world, how can you be afraid of being rejected face to face? The reality is that online dating, especially some seemingly distant elite or millionaire dating, can be very scary for many people, and if you fall into this category, you're not alone.


Online dating doesn't have to be that way. If you learn to adjust your mindset, you can enjoy the benefits online dating brings to single men and women around the world every day:


What you said is not good enough
Many people think that everything they say to their online dating partner, especially the opening line, has to be fun, engaging and memorable. Of course, you want to stand out from the competition. Don't just say, "Hey, what's going on? Or "hey," don't be boring. But you don't have to spend a lot of time and energy stressing about what to write. Writing an email should take no more than a few minutes. Just focus on being a conversationalist and do it to get the other person interested in you.


It's good enough to have your picture in someone else's hands. Don't let negative thoughts creep into your mind and put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Trust yourself to do well with online dating! Here's a tip: everyone's favorite topic is themselves. If you find something in his or her profile that he or she is really interested in, focus. If you can also have a little fun, so much the better. The first email just broke the ice. As long as your profile is set up, you'll be fine.


Another tip: try to talk to people wherever you go. This will help you function in the online world, and who knows, you may just have met someone in real life as you hone your conversation skills.


People will judge you for meeting your partner online
I remember two years ago, a friend of mine met his future wife online and pretended to meet her at the gym. If someone makes you feel like you're not fit to try to meet someone online, that person will only hinder your overall happiness and progress in life. When you ask for their advice, immediately cut them out of your relationships. If they judge you, fuck them! After all, no one else has the right to interfere with your search for a mate. Try to remember that many people who judge others are unhappy in their relationships. Think about how they feel when they see you walking arm in arm with your perfect partner. Be bold to do what you want, regardless of what others think.


You're desperate, weird, and lonely and think you're an online dating loser
God, that's a horrible idea. You have to believe you don't, so don't question the concept. In the past decade, online dating has become completely mainstream, and you are no exception. Online dating may not be what you originally dreamed it would be, you may meet your partner, but you may not realize how much the Internet and other aspects of society have changed. The world has evolved, and because of that, online dating has evolved, with thousands of high-quality singles logging in every day, there is absolutely nothing abnormal or desperate about that. You're just doing what everyone else is doing. Relax!


Putting your hand out first can seem aggressive to women
Whether or not women should take the initiative to take the first step when dating online has always been a big debate. Some people think that women should be reserved, while others think that women should also take the initiative to pursue their own happiness. Whether you believe in this principle or not, there is no denying that times are changing and we are always moving forward.


Ladies, I really think you can text first. In fact, it is highly encouraged. Men don't think you're too aggressive just because you're making the first move. Starting a conversation will get you to the front, make you look confident, and let him know you're there. Most men are pleased and flattered when a woman takes the initiative. Starting a conversation can lighten their load and make them feel good about being noticed. In short, it's better to take the initiative than to wait for the opportunity to come your way. Who knows how long you'll have to wait?


Your message won't get a response
Chances are, when you send a message to someone you're interested in on one of your exclusive dating sites, your target gets a notification on their phone or computer. Within seconds, the person will decide whether or not to reply. They finally decided not to. And then you're in a state of infinite sadness and self-denial?


Even if you do, so what? Life goes on, you should step up to see the next person. The best thing about online dating is that you have access to a myriad of profiles. Reaching out shouldn't be scary, and you shouldn't feel bad for yourself if you don't get a response. There are many reasons why people don't respond to you, and they usually have nothing to do with you. Maybe they were busy. Maybe they are taking a break from online dating. Maybe they think you're great, but not for them. You're here to meet people. That's what you need to focus on. Put yourself there and see what happens.


Remember, do it when you want to start dating online, there are always new experiences waiting for you! Sometimes it takes time and patience to meet someone you have chemistry with. But I will tell you that if I had been plagued by the fear of online dating, I would still be single today and miss out on all the incredible life memories I have enjoyed over the years. So it's important to overcome your fear.
