However the system is not perfect, online dating comes with a host of problems.
I’ve heard many horror stories of women showing up on a date only to realize an hour in that their dinner companion is a complete psycho.
Dating the dark side
If you and your potential love interest live hours away, agree to meet in the middle.
Nothing is worse than driving 4 hours only to be stood up and then forced to drive back home alone with your thoughts.
So you might say that I had prior success with online dating. " I did meet some people who on first appearance seemed to be okay.
Since then, digital dating has expanded and now there are more online websites and dating apps. I soon realised that first, I would have to start a relationship, fall in love again, with myself. But then I started to encounter a new behaviour, one that I did not experience last time. These were the men who initially start out charming, then focus on how "great" or "hot" you look.
First tactic, try to agree on a location close to where you live.
This means less cost and time spent travel in the case of a no show.
Being stood up is always a possibility and this should just be accepted when entering the online dating world.
However it does not have to be a horrible experience, there are ways to minimize the hurt.

But please be warned that you can also experience such encounters on platforms that are not necessarily for dating. I cut him off when he asked if he should have chest hair or not. The first step I would say is always being clear about what you want from any encounter.
