Even people as young as teenagers are swiping left and right in order to find their perfect someone. To help you put your best foot forward into the online dating pool, we recommend reading these tips from our own Lauren editors. On most dating sites (or apps) these days, you only have space for a few sentences or possibly a paragraph to tell your potential suitors what you’re all about.
You want to make sure that you get across what’s important to you, and show some personality, too.
We’re used to instant gratification, the 24-hour news cycle is at our fingertips, we can even have food delivered straight to our homes with a few taps on our phone screens.
If you’re only into tall, dark and handsome but you end up having great conversation with a blondie who’s on the shorter side, give it a chance. We’re not telling you to run out and date someone 30 years older than you, but remember that older usually means wiser (and more dating and life experience), so don’t be afraid to date outside of your own age range.
A lot of girls will engage in extended texting (or sometimes phone calls) with suitors for weeks at a time.
The most important thing is to make it personal, so whatever you feel good about is the right way to go. First of all, get objective advice on your photos from friends.
Sometimes the photos we think we look the cutest in might not be the best, so get your friends opinions on what your best shots are. If you love the way you look in a certain photo, use it in your dating profile.
