I’m attracting a lot of guys online, however some of these men are just not my type. They send very nice and complimentary messages to me, which makes it hard to say no.
Sometimes you’ve got to channel Nancy Reagan and just say no. If there’s zero attraction on your part, there’s no point in faking it just to make a nice guy not feel badly. Doing so is actually a disservice to him. Be honest and friendly; say thank you, but I don’t think we’re a match and wish them luck on their search. Sending this message is nicer than just not responding. Granted, not responding gets the job done too, but being friendly with your refusal is the way to go.
I’ve been dating a guy for six months. We met online, and although we’re having a great time I see he’s still on the Apps. How should I handle this?
If you see his active profile, then obviously yours is still up, running and visible to your great date too. Please ask yourself… if a great guy sent you a message, would you take the bait? If so then leave the profile discussion alone. If you really want to focus on solely dating him and willing to take down your online profiles, then begin a dialogue with this guy about exclusivity.
What’s the one piece of advice you have about online dating?
Easy! Online dating is just one part of putting yourself out there. Don’t rely on it as your sole source of finding dates; keep up with it but keep going out and putting yourself in scenarios where you can meet potential dates in real time.
