Thanks, Don Sorry to learn this person did not exhibit good etiquette and manners. They can be rude, hateful and sometimes mean to you. I do bring up politics, religion, relationships, life philosophy, and friendships early just to see feel a person out. I never get emotionally attached been burned before with online dates, just open to meet and see "what if".For the next woman you encounter online, exchange 4-5 solid messages (8-10 messages total) and then suggest meeting live with a SPECIFIC first spot, day, and time prepared in the near future. Once I knew the person was sane, I went to see her. The other 30% was just that she didn't like what she saw and wanted more than a simple guy. You never know someone until you meet them and then they could go Jekyll/Hyde on your in a minute so... I found the situation to be humorous and politely excused myself and wished her a good evening and pressed delete, delete.So, in order to make you feel a little more confident and comfortable in meeting someone new for the first time, here are some things to think about that may make your first meeting go a little more smoothly.What is the first thing that you think of when you are preparing to get ready to meet someone for the first time?
Having proper text etiquette is like making a good first impression, and you only get one shot to ignite a potential flame.
Research suggests that there’s a crucial threshold about six weeks into online emails where you can start to raise your expectations unrealistically high and then feel very let down if, as often happens, a face-to-face meeting proves that there’s no compatibility.
As always, be aware of the dynamic of the arrangements.
Consequently, we tend to take extra care in how we look, feel, and even smell for that first initial meeting.
But as we take our appearance into consideration, we should also pay attention to our feelings and expectations of meeting this person.
