Many online dating experts say that you should exchange phone numbers and start talking as soon as possible; sometimes within as little as three messages!While this may be a little curt and abrupt for some people, the idea that you should start talking and preparing to meet quickly is a good one.
Even though swiping apps in their very nature are supposed to draw you in immediately with just a picture of someone, having even just a one-sentence profile could put you ahead of others.
Yes, there’s a bit of pressure when it comes to writing about yourself, but leaving your profile empty is not the answer!
And, what if the person who you are talking to seems to be unwilling to commit to a meet?
The answer to what to do then will depend on whether you want someone who is just an online chat buddy.
Do you want to keep messaging this person and never meet? It's okay to do a fade if you have been talking for awhile with no progress toward an actual meeting.
