How To Win At The Game Of Internet Dating
Don't take online dating so seriously, treat it like you're at a cocktail party.

I know some of you are just a little too sensitive. Just the hint of rejection from someone you never met can send you spiraling into self-doubt and disappointment. Don't fall into the trap of taking what a man you've never met does or says to you as a reflection of your worth.

One of my clients received a lengthy email accusing her of being dishonest in her profile and threatened to report her if she didn't take it down. Another had her profile sent back to her completely re-written, complete with grammatical corrections and given the grade of a C-. Seriously, these are examples of internet dating "gone wild" and the best antidote is to tell them as jokes to your friends.

 

Internet dating isn't brain surgery. Remember that phrase every time you get too wrapped up in what's happening on line. It's not a life-or-death situation. You won't disappear if a man doesn't respond favorably to you.

Having a sense of humor will keep your expectations in check and help you stay in the game. You never know, the next man to contact you may be "The One."
