Switching your dating game to the internet may seem like it will yield better results, but there are a few beginner's mistakes every guy makes.We've got the inside scoop from one girl looking for online love.I've always viewed Online Dating as a box of free cats.Even though many advised that I try Online Dating, I was always put off by and eharmony because these sites take away the mystery behind the opposite sex.The same goes for body flex pics (men in the buff in the mirror — a double whammy! Not only does the guy look vain, but sometimes in the pose, downright goofy.These kind of photos (or lack thereof) make things socially awkward for interested parties.To me, it makes dating seem like a business or company.
Plus, even after I deactivated, I still received emails about people interested in me, with one saying “He chose YOU!
The old theory goes that if you see an ad in the newspaper that reads “Box of Free Cats,” no one will want them.
Yet, if you see an ad that reads “Cats: each,” people will be interested.
Some men have claimed in messages to me that it was “fate” and that they had been looking for someone matching my description their “whole life.” With more than one man making this claim, how am I supposed to know who's serious and who's just another faker like David Koresh (read: not Jesus)?
While flattering, it's a bit overwhelming (especially in an introductory email).
