TOP TIPS FOR GETTING A DATE ON DATING APPS !

HOW TO GET A DATE WITH DATING APPS
Dating as a millennial is getting increasingly difficult! With social media and an abundance of choice, it's increasingly difficult to understand fantasy from reality. The good thing about social media and dating though is that it makes you realise that there really are an abundance of cool people who you can date and find a genuine connection thanks to dating apps.



Below are my top 5 tips for getting a date on dating apps.


1) Show your personality with your photos.


Let's face it, we're a shallow society and the pics are the first things we look at before even starting a conversation. Really think about what you want to convey. I'm extremely bubbly and smile a lot and put pics of me smiling. I try to have clear, good quality pics too. So guys can see me clearly. Try and not add your friends or family in your pics too! Nothing worse than a crush potentially thinking you're your mate and facing them instead. It's also good to showcase your hobbies too, maybe a holiday pic, going out (not drunk pics) etc. It all gives you material to chat about.

2) Please fill your profile.


It doesn't need to be an essay and I can admit it can belong. But it doesn't have to be painful. I keep it simple, I say who I am, a city I'm from some interesting facts and what I'm looking for as I'm a straightforward type of woman. Try and be funny or show interests if humour ain't your thing. Now you can add your Spotify playlist to your profile and Instagram too! So if words aren't your strong suit then these elements can help.

 Be proactive and Respectful

A lot of people are afraid to make the first move. For me, if I want something I go and get it. That goes for dating too! If I see a fine man and he hasn't yet messaged I make the first move. It's a saturated market and I want to stand out!

It's always hard to start the first convo. But again I keep it simple, I usually look at a profile and ask questions about that. If the guy is into the same music as me, I start off by greeting him and then chatting about the artist. Then keep it casual and flow from there. If someone has a dead and empty profile, Hi works just as well.

Please don't be disrespectful! I can't tell you the awful things I've been asked on these apps. You'll get an instant block and your profile will be reported. So be nice yeah?


4) Wear red

No seriously, wearing the colour red really works. Not only is it a banging colour that looks amazing on most skin tones, but it also helps you stand out.

5) Take it off the app


I don't live my life on dating apps and as a result, I can miss opportunities with great guys. So I always recommend getting that number and carrying on the conversation on WhatsApp instead. How do you do this, just say hey I don't really use this app much but I'd love to continue this conversation on WhatsApp. This works 9/10 for me.


And bonus tip, suggest the date within 1 week to two weeks of chatting. Be upfront and suggest something low keys like a meal and drinks. Also, meet in person!


I've been successful with getting dates with the above tips! Let me know how you get on!
