Tired of running after girls and getting no lift? Well, Thank God for the internet! With the prevailing number of online dating and social media sites, it’s become amazingly simple to find a partner virtually, even in Pakistan! Though the biggest challenge with this approach for most men is, how do we go about it?

Don’t worry Fellas, we got you covered! Here’s a few tips to locking down a lady in cyberspace:

  1. Know What You’re Looking For

Before you hit that ‘send’ button, form a detailed picture of the personality traits, intended relationship status (casual or serious), duration and approach towards what you’re looking for. Otherwise your online dating experience will be an enigma where you end up jumping from one person to another with no idea of what that is. Moreover, remember to evaluate who YOU are and what YOU can offer.

  1. Put Yourself in Her Shoes

Women tend to get at least a dozen messages a day on dating sites, so how do you stick out from the crowd? Yes, an attractive profile photo does wonders but that very wonder can turn into a nightmare if accompanied by bad grammar, swear words and constant whining. Believe it or not, language can be seductive! Put yourself in her shoes and you’ll be surprised at the results.

  1. Engage Her

Let’s face it, anybody can talk over the internet. That’s what it’s there for. But that very charm has to transcend from behind your LED so she can feel it. Don’t tell her that you’re a ‘cool dude’ — show her. Whether that be through sharing photos (non-explicit), funny stories or encouraging transparency to get her to feel engaged.

  1. Be Real

Isn’t it a bi**h when she’s Megan Fox on her profile photo but Meera in reality? Well guess what? She might just feel the same way about your personality. The set of expectations you set for her must be managed when you meet her, otherwise she’ll run away the moment she sees you walk in. If you’re a half-decent, down-to-earth guy then keep it that way — No need to play anything up.

5. If You Like Her, Meet Her!

Be a man (this should be your slogan)! If you can feel the momentum building, make a concrete plan to meet up with her. Make sure it’s somewhere public so she can feel at ease. Most importantly pick up on her dating pace because with these things, timing is everything.

Now go, be a Man!
