If you are single, you most likely are preoccupied with dating on a regular basis. It does not matter the gender, finding a date for the weekend is as old as Adam and Eve. Men usually do the looking and asking while the ladies commonly send signals to let men know they are available. Times have changed, so it isn’t uncommon if a lady does the asking but if you ask most ladies they still desire to be asked first.
Online dating hasn’t been around as long as Adam and Eve, but it can be a gateway to a successful dating life no matter if you are looking for a date online or offline. Whichever case, online dating presents you with a venue to discover how to ask for a date without feeling the hurt of rejection that is typically felt when you ask a person face to face. Normally, if you are rejected by someone at an online dating site, the rejection seems less personal. It may sound clinical, but online dating is a great place to polish your dating skillsets.
I doubt if any one, male or female, enjoys rejection but from a male’s viewpoint, I can testify that rejection can be quite damaging to your confidence. It isn’t easy to work up the braveness to ask a lady if she should would enjoy to accompany you to dinner and getting a decisive no or an obvious excuse to try to spare your feelings. If you get numerous rejections, your are certain to ask yourself the single person’s mantra “what’s wrong with me.”
Confidence can be infectious. If you lose it, it will trouble you from one rejection to the next. If you have it, it exudes in every feat you take and success seems to be never ending. Even though you may be dying to be with the opposite sex for a weekend date, if you have no confidence, it is tough to portray the self-assurance wanted to get him or her to say “yes” to your invite. Online dating may be the key to gaining back the confidence you desire to be a player in the dating world.
With online dating, dating rituals are less extreme. Members at online dating sites appear to be laid back and are less concern about “what you look like” and more concerned about “who you are.” When you encounter someone face to face asking for a date, within seconds the individual being asked has to make an evaluation of who you are, if they would feel secure being with you in an intimate place, etc. With online dating it is two people casually talking through a keyboard and the risk or apprehension of intimacy is not as prevalent. Your confidence with the opposite sex usually is regained if lost and your new found confidence can carry on in the face to face dating world when asking a person for a date. You still may be rejected, but knowing that you have the sanctuary of your online dating world, your whole personality and casual attitude to asking someone face to face for a date seems to be reflected in your approach and rejected is less likely. Of course, many who discovered their confidence at an online dating site, may also realize the love of their life. Either way, online dating is a place to find yourself if you lost the confidence to jump into the world of dating.
