It takes time to build a quality AmorousHug and to meet someone you’re compatible with, whether that’s online or off. It’s easy to get caught up in the number of messages you receive and think “this isn’t working,” but don’t give up just yet. Instead, focus on creating a high-quality dating profile that’s an authentic representation of who you are (with good photos, detailed information about your life and interests, and what people can expect to find in a date with you) and showing up consistently.
Avoid the Mismatches
It’s important to be clear about what you want in a relationship and write a profile that reflects those values, says relationship coach Rhonda Milrad. You might also benefit from asking a trusted friend to check your profile for any areas that might create miscommunications. For example, don’t put up photos from when you were 50 lbs heavier or say that you don’t drink if you do.
Don’t Respond to Requests for Money
Never send any kind of financial help, even via wire transfer or overseas, despite how convincing and compelling a reason might be. This is a clear sign of a scammer and you should report them to the site or app immediately. Also, don’t make your search for a significant other the center of your life. Instead, refocus your energy on activities you enjoy, work and health, and relationships with friends and family. It will keep you grounded and help you find a quality partner that is a better fit for you.
