But remember: While a few tips ago I told you not to spend too much time online with this guy before meeting him, I absolutely encourage you to have prerequisites for you to decide a man is actually worth meeting.Again, you have all the power, so decide what’s important to you.Here are a few examples of what I’m talking about when I say you need to prequalify him: You want to have had a phone call before you meet (then you can tell if he has an annoyingly shrill voice and save yourself the trouble of meeting him in person).You want a man who asks you questions, not just talks about himself.However, do NOT have him pick you up at your house!On a first date (really first ), you don’t know this guy well enough to trust him with your address. Don’t give him your phone number early on either, because he can use that to find your address. (An alternative to giving your number is to use a phone and messaging app so that your phone number is shielded.) If he’s not willing to drive, screw him. Hell, some of us even doctor our photos to make us look even better than we actually look!It is important to see if there is good talking chemistry before meeting in person. If you’re a little nervous about what to text, practice on Meet Me. You may have good conversations with men you find attractive, only for them to ghost. Especially if you’ve been out of the dating game a while, you can benefit from texting, talking to, and going out with men.
Choose a coffee shop or restaurant close to your home so that you put in minimal effort to go on this first meetup.And yet, 54% of people lie on their dating profiles!It really goes back to the confidence thing: if you are secure in who you are, there’s no reason you should fudge your online dating profile.You’re a sexy, rockin’ lady, and any man would be happy to have the opportunity to take you out.I wish I could say that every man who tries to get your attention online will be a quality dude, but the fact is, there are a lot of scummy men out there.
