We try our hand with online dating in the hopes that we may get a girlfriend out of it. Unfortunately, not everyone who tries to meet people through the internet is successful. So, what’s preventing us from having a girlfriend, or, at the very least, getting a date?
What We’re Doing Wrong That’s Keeping Us From Having A Girlfriend
It’s easy to get into online dating. Most sign up processes for dating apps and sites don’t even take five minutes to finish. However, it’s how we date that’s the problem. We have specific perspectives and habits that are prohibiting us from getting the girl of our dreams:
1. We automatically assume that a girl doesn’t or won’t like us.
This has definitely happened to all of us. We browse through several profiles. Some catch our attention, but we figure that this girl might not be interested in us so we don’t take the chance to say hello. This is a mistake. If we like someone, we need to take that chance to connect.
2. We don’t feel confident enough.
Most likely, you don’t feel confident because you lack experience when it comes to relationships. It’s also likely, too, that we haven’t been in a relationship in a while. The truth is, it doesn’t matter. You’re not the only one who is inexperienced. There are a lot of people, not just in the online dating world, that feel incompetent in love. So, don’t make a big deal out of it.
3. We lack action.
Let’s go back to the first example on our list because it is a way of not taking action. Another is that we are afraid to ask someone we have been chatting with on a real date. There are other examples too, like not taking the initiative to be proactive in life in general. There are several opportunities that we miss if we do not take action, especially in love.
4. You listen to bad advice.
There’s going to be plenty of people who will tell you to do A, B, and C, when you are dating online. It’s great if their advice actually works, but what if their advice is actually one of the reasons why you have difficulty having a girlfriend? Listen to people who have experience dating online. Better yet, seek online resources and forums for help.
It is of our own doing! We are preventing ourselves from having a girlfriend, but it’s not too late of course. If we take this chance to be proactive, we can still have a successful love life. For more dating tips, read other posts on the blog.
