People have fancied online dating like a duck takes to water, because it works or, at least, it can work. Women are, generally, terrified of meeting a man that she has been chatting with online. All they’ve heard about are the scary things that can happen and, I must say, they have a right to be careful to the utmost. That’s not only wise but vital. So what’s a nice guy to do? You aren’t a pervert, a sexual predator, or a weirdo. You are just a nice guy looking for “the” girl for you.
You must be patient. Don’t urge her for personal information like her real name or where she lives. Keep your conversations light and fun until she finds comfortable talking with you online. Don’t try to rush her into meeting face-to-face. She will think you are desperate or a pervert. Patience. Patience. Patience.
Be absolutely truthful about your physical appearance and line of work. A good relationship has never been, and will never be, established on lies and deceit. Sooner or later she will discover the truth anyway and there you are back at square one.
A picture truly is worth a thousand words. Send many pictures of yourself executing your daily activities and make them full body shots, not just head shots. If you were dating a girl in the real life she wouldn’t just see your head.
When the discussion has been opened about meeting face-to-face for the first time, propose that you meet in a very public place, during daytime hours and that she take a friend with her. After all, you have nothing to hide. You’ve told her the reality about yourself and she has already seen many pictures of you. The only thing left is to get her feel secure meeting you.
