Do & Dont’s of Social Media Dating

 Dating has changed….Social media has transformed the dating landscape. Every day more and ore people meet their next date using social network… That’s why you should learn the rules of social media dating, and turn those ‘likes’ into love.

  1. DO. Snapchat: Personally, I’m a fan of snapchatting. It’s easy, fun, and more entertaining than texting. BUT only snap him if he reciprocates your snaps…because if he stops responding to your semi-attractive selfies…then it just gets a little weird.
  2. DON’T: mistake ‘Friending’ with ‘Meeting in person’. Both have value, but if you’re serious about meeting someone, prioritize face-to-face meetings over virtual connections.
  3. DO: follow up! If you’ve enjoyed meeting someone, tell them so with a simple note, message or text afterwards. Common courtesy and kindness are never outdated.
  4. DON’T: be creepy. If someone’s not interested in you, ‘Facebook stalking’ or ‘Sexting’ them will annoy them, and likely ruin any chance that they’ll introduce you to their hot friend who might be perfect for you!
  5. DO: take your time. Not everything in life is made to happen at the speed of light. Take the time to really get to know somebody by spending quality time together, doing things that you both enjoy.
  6. DON’T: rush it. Changing your Facebook status to ‘in a relationship’ is not an acceptable way of letting someone know you want to be with them. Talk about it first, and respect their feelings if they would prefer to keep your relationship status private.
  7. DO: be social! Dating is a numbers game, so connecting with new people on social media can expand your personal network, and put some spark in your dating life.
  8. DON’T: be a ‘text spammer’! Sending endless texts or messages to someone before meeting them in person can send the message that you’re not serious… or simply not someone they want to meet in person.
  9. DO: be open-minded! Social media is here to stay, and helps many people feel more connected in their world. Whether you love it or hate it, be respectful of your partner’s views on social media, even if they differ from yours.
  10. DO.Take it easy with pictures of the two of you on Instagram: Different people have different preferences when starting a new relationship, but if you are just in the beginning stages of hooking up with someone (or if you have a sense of whether he’s into “going public” with you) be careful about how many pictures you upload to Instagram and/or Facebook. Although you might really like someone and want to show everyone your happy, cloud 9 bliss…your boy toy might not be so keen on the idea right away. After all, once a couple-y pic of the two of you shows up on Facebook, you might as well be dating!
  11. DON’T: Avoid “like” to  all of his/her pictures: Like. Like. Like. STOP. Liking a picture or “favorite-ing” a tweet every once in a while is fine. It’ll put you on his/her radar and let him/her know you’re thinking about him…but before you get all click happy, make sure you’re not coming off as too aggressive, especially if the two of you are still trying to figure out your relationship. It’s tempting, yes, but you will be much happier in the long run if you go a little more under the radar.
