Trust your intuition and pay attention to the signs.It's sometimes difficult to find a genuine person on a dating app, but it is very possible.But don't create your dream guy in your head and expect to find him. You have to learn to sit with the fear and get used to being alone.Find someone when you're ready, not when you need fulfillment.If you’re the sort of person who’s attached to either of these social media platforms, you know how quickly they can out you for telling your boss a little white lie about being sick when you’re really sampling every flavor of ice cream at a diner you found on your awesome last-minute, spontaneous road trip.
Just try not to narrate your day for the new person in your life; you should probably doing some work anyway, right?Doing research on the person doesn't make you a stalker. I learned this the hard way when I Googled a guy AFTER our date and found out that he was arrested once for certain “indecent behavior” that I will not repeat here. If you can't enjoy this person's company while you are both sober, then you don't have a healthy relationship.Sure, it may be fun in the moment while you're both getting trashed and slurring your words. You don't have to drop smooth pick-up lines to be a good flirt. Awkwardness is mostly endearing, so you just have to own it.The good times and the bad times have been developed as memories in my mind, and I'm grateful for both the positives and the negatives.It's easiest to learn through experience; however, being smart in the process of dating is even more helpful.
