Finding a Match on Chapter 2

So now your photos, profile and preferences are complete you need to look for some matches.

We know that you only get out of online dating what you put in. You will need to be courageous and spend time reading profiles, liking profiles and engaging in conversation and messaging.  

Your profile choices will make matches to potential dates and it is time to start swiping! Once you have viewed each profile you have the option to swipe left if it’s a ‘no’ or right if it’s a ‘yes’ – do not get confused! Be warned, swiping can be addictive!

When you swipe right, and they swipe right it’s a double yes and a match – congratulations. You can now message each other securely through the site whilst you get to know one another. Do not share your personal information like phone number and address until you have had multiple chats through the security of the website and feel confident.

When you get a match it’s time to act. Fortune favours the brave! Start the conversation casually – ‘How are you?’ or ‘Have you had a good weekend?’ As you grow in confidence you can have a more engaging conversation.

Personally speaking, I find there is a lot to be said about meeting someone relatively quickly after messaging. Meeting is the only way to find out if there is a spark and find out if someone is ‘in’ or ‘out.’ When you choose to meet is up to you, all we ask is that you feel 100% comfortable with your match and that you adopt safe dating etiquette – meet in a public space, travel under your own steam, and do not accept a lift home. A casual coffee in the day is the easiest, low-pressure date and it’s easy to exit if it’s not working for you.
