It’s not that you’re opposed to meeting women online. It’s just that you’re not indeed that into the idea of dating sites. Before we get into the meat of the topic, we should tell you that skipping out on online dating is one of the largest mistakes a man can make. However, we get that it’s maybe not for everyone. So what’s the best way to commence a conversation with a dame online without using online dating sites?
We’re talking here about stuff like Tinder. It’s not truly an online dating site. Rather, it’s an app that you can use to find women in your area that you might be interested in dating. We have a entire report on the best way to use Tinder, but it all comes down to putting your best foot forward and only going after women that you’d actually want to date. There are other similar apps out there and you can look for this weekend’s date while you rail the bus home from work.
You’ve got friends, right? Well, that means that every time you log in to a social networking site like Facebook, you’re going to have friends recommended to you. Why not hit one of them up? You can embark the conversation just like you would at a bar or a club. Stick to flirting and leave getting to know you type conversation for when the two of you are together. Once you’ve established some rapport, suggest that the two of you get together some time to drape out.
Online Groups and Forums
One of the greatest ways to meet other people is through collective interests. And, one of the greatest things about the Internet is that it makes it lighter than ever to meet people who share your interests. Sign up for forums and groups on Facebook where you can meet people who share your passions. Granted, if your passion is repairing old cars you’re going to have a stiffer time meeting women in that field. However, using the Internet to find them expands the potential field of women into the ems or hundreds of thousands. You’re going to want to open a conversation in the same kind of flirty, outgoing way that you would at a bar or club. Then suggest to get together, hopefully to engage in something related to the subject you have a collective interest on.
Meetups can be a good thing, because you find them online, but you’re going to actually meet women in real life. This means that you don’t have to spend time flirting and bantering online —, you can skip to doing that in real life. Meetups are online dating that cuts out the middle man, going directly to the part where the two of you are getting to know each other up close and in person. What’s more, because they often center around some kind of collective interest, they permit you to meet women that you already have something in common with. There are also singles groups that throw you more into the deep end. But for guys who don’t like bars and clubs, this can be a fine way to commence meeting women.
