In this day and age, we commonly encounter so many rules and tips when it comes to online dating. These are all very helpful. However, at the very top of the list of these rules and tips, there’s one golden rule that we can always turn to when we are overwhelmed with remembering everything.
This Golden Rule Allows Us To Go Back To The Essence Of Dating
When you date, your main purpose is to find someone you can be in a relationship with. But, amidst all of the distractions, options, and ease online dating brings us, we sway from our original purpose of finding true love. For example, because we can easily find dates online, we might be tempted to play around. We don’t consider the feelings of others anymore if we do this.
No matter how you want to date, you should always go back to the golden rule of online dating which is dating with respect. Respect begets respect, as they say. We should see our date as a human being and not merely a picture on the internet.
The Respectful Way To Date Online & Offline
Many of us may think that we already know how to respect people online, but do we really? Here are a few basic ways to show respect to anyone we meet:
- Ask questions that are not too personal.
- If the person doesn’t want to share his or her thoughts about a certain topic, then let’s drop the conversation. Move on the next topic.
- Be respectful with your words. Do not use lewd language.
- Always think about the culture of the other person. Don’t crack racial jokes that could potentially be offensive.
- Don’t hog the time. Allow the other person to share his or her thoughts in the conversation. It’s not just about your thoughts.
- When you say that you will be online during this particular time, then you have to come through. You never want to waste your date’s time.
As you can tell, these are all very basic, but still essential. Starting today, let’s focus our minds on respecting the people we meet whether online or offline so we can be more successful and grounded in our dating life. For more tips, read other posts on the blog.
