You’re a sexy, rockin’ lady, and any man would be happy to have the opportunity to take you out.
I wish I could say that every man who tries to get your attention online will be a quality dude, but the fact is, there are a lot of scummy men out there.
Here are a few examples of what I’m talking about when I say you need to prequalify him: You want to have had a phone call before you meet (then you can tell if he has an annoyingly shrill voice and save yourself the trouble of meeting him in person).
You want a man who asks you questions, not just talks about himself.
They’re not the selfie queens that women can be, so they can be clueless when it comes to posting photos that actually look good. If the information in his profile interests you, it’s worth getting to know him. If you expect a man to be honest with you, whether it’s by showing photos that accurately portray him or being real in his profile, how can you expect to get away with lying yourself?
In 2011, the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center had 5,600 complaints from victims of “romance scams.” And those are just the ones reported.
I have met countless women who have struck up a conversation with men online who, it turned out, were using someone else’s photos and lying about everything. There are a ton of legit guys on dating apps, and I know just as many women who have found great partners through online dating.
That means he drives to meet you, not the other way around.
Choose a coffee shop or restaurant close to your home so that you put in minimal effort to go on this first meetup.
But remember: While a few tips ago I told you not to spend too much time online with this guy before meeting him, I absolutely encourage you to have prerequisites for you to decide a man is actually worth meeting.
