Play It Slow
When you meet a woman you’re interested in online we’ve found that the slow burn approach works best. Not every woman’s going to want to meet up in person right away. If you’re genuinely interested in her you’ll want to respect her wishes in that regard. Now, just because you can’t meet up in person right away doesn’t mean you should go overboard trying to compensate for that fact. It’s okay to read her profile and absorb the information she’s shared there. It’s okay to look at her photo a few times and admire her smile. It’s not okay to memorize everything on her profile word for word and recite it back to her during conversations. You want her to think you’re interesting and worth her time. If you go overboard and start giving off the stalker vibe, she’s probably going to bail.
Don’t Friend Her Friends
It’s completely natural to want to know everything about a woman you’re attracted to. It’s also natural to want to be friends with her friends. However, there’s a normal progression in regards to reaching that point. Thoroughly canvassing her profiles on social media platforms and sending friend requests to all her friends is going to send up all kinds of red flags. Once you meet her in person and once you’re sure that a relationship is for certain it’s okay to start extending your presence, bit by bit, into other areas of her life. If you jump the gun you’re going to come across as desperate and weird so just be patient.
Don’t Mention Her Past
So you’ve made it to the Facebook friends stage. Now you can comb over her profile to your heart’s content in order to glean all the fun little details about her. However, this isn’t license to go back five years in her newsfeed and learn about the epic breakup she had with her boyfriend from college. And even if you do go back that far in her newsfeed, don’t bring it up in conversation. Bringing up a relationship long dead and gone is only going to lead to awkward conversation.
The same applies when it comes to pictures she took years ago during a swimming trip or some other occasion. Mentioning how killer she looks in a bikini before you’ve even met her in person is not a good idea.
