10 Signs Your Online Date Could Lead To Lasting Love [EXPERT]
... featuring advice from YourTango Expert Singles Warehouse!

4. You share the same theory on timing. You both think it's important to be single for three months, six months, two years … after ending a serious relationship. How much importance someone puts on spending time alone between relationships is telling of many important traits.

First, it tells you how happy they are in their individual life — how fulfilled they are with their career, their social life, their hobbies and so on. An unhappy person looks to always have a relationship to fill their void. Next, it shows you how independent they are. If a person is okay with being alone for long periods of time, they most likely won't be an irrationally needy partner. YourTango Experts Presents ... Online Dating Bootcamp!

5. The serious things aren't serious. Have an alcoholic aunt? What about a dad who's cheated on your mom more times than you can count? If you find yourself joking about these parts of your life with someone you met online, that's a very good sign. For some reason, there are people who just open us up — people who make us feel like our dirty laundry isn't all that dirty.

You want someone who is able to roll with the punches and find the humor in the dark things that happen in life. It's rare to find a person who makes you more willing to roll with the punches and find the humor in things. If you find them, see if you can keep them.

6. You define "partner" the same way. You'll find a lot of people online "looking to be treated like a princess" or "looking for their princess." Good. Those two should meet. Everyone has a different idea of what purpose a partner should serve in their life. 20 Rules For Your First Online Date

To you, is a partner a best friend? Is it someone you want to share every little thing with, or, would you reserve some info for just your friends? Get into conversations with someone online about detailed ways they want a partner involved in their life. If your criteria match up almost eye to eye, you'd most likely have a very smooth relationship.

7. You've met the same number of people. You've both met only four or five people from the internet, in person, in the last three months. Or, you've both met 30. Okay, stay away from people who've met 30 people in three months. But, if you've both met around the same number of people, that means you are equally as selective. You both require the same amount or type of information from someone before committing to meeting them in person. That sameness in judgment when it comes to online dating probably translates to judgment in other parts of life.

Tinder: Is It Time To Move On?

By

I used to host speed dating events. On any given night, forty to fifty people would show up hoping to meet someone amazing within the span of a four-minute date. It was kind of a strange idea at first— meeting twenty guys in one evening to see if anyone had potential. But it was efficient. I sifted through more and more guys each week who ... Read more
