Do you want to know how to approach a woman on social media?
There are many ways to meet women, but one of the most common is through the Internet. It's a way to meet people without having to leave home.
The pandemic has caused many people to turn to dating apps and social media to find love and dates. The trend seems to have continued even now that the world is reopening.
If you're looking to ask a woman out on a date via social media, here are some tips on approaching her and ensure you get a yes.
You're about to learn:
Now, let's see how it's done right.
Knowing how to approach women on the Internet can be tricky. On the one hand, you have the benefit of being able to hide some of your nerves behind a screen. On the other hand, it can be harder to gauge a woman's interest when you're communicating through social media.
Here are some critical tips to follow.
Being behind a screen doesn't mean you can be rude or disrespectful. If you wouldn't say it in person, don't say it online.
This is especially important when approaching a woman for the first time. Start with a simple greeting and see how she responds before moving on to more personal questions.
Seriously, don't do this. It's gross, creepy, and will probably get you blocked faster than you can say "send nudes."
If you want to send nudes, wait until she initiates or explicitly asks for them. Even then, proceed with caution. Once you send nudes, there's no taking them back.
A compliment can get you places, but too much flattery is insincere. Keep your compliments short, sweet, and specific to avoid being disingenuous.
For example, "You have great taste in music! I love that band too!" is better than "Wow, you're so hot! I bet you get hit on all the time!"
The first compliment is genuine and shows that you share similar interests, while the second one just objectifies her and makes her wonder if you have anything else to say for yourself.
When you're looking at her profile, what stands out to you? Use that as the topic of your message.
Try to find common ground. This can be anything from a shared interest to a mutual friend.
Mention something specific from her profile that caught your eye instead of sending her a generic "Hey beautiful!" message that sounds copy-pasted.
Not only will it make her feel special, but it'll also show that you bothered to read her profile and learn about her instead of just looking at her pictures and deciding she was hot enough to slide into her DMs.
When messaging her, be sure to keep it light and friendly. No need to get too serious this early. Just introduce yourself and tell her a bit about yourself. And be sure to spell check! Nothing will turn her off quicker than seeing misspelled words in your message.
This should go without saying, but social media is not a substitute for real-life human interaction. You should eventually take things offline if things are going well so that you can get to know each other in person and see if there's chemistry beyond digital communication.
Once you've found something you share in common with her, use it as an icebreaker in your message. For example, if you both like hiking, you could say something like, "I saw on your profile that you like hiking. I'm planning on going on a hike this weekend, and I would love it if you joined me."
If that's too much, suggest meeting up for coffee or drinks and take it from there. Who knows — your next relationship could blossom from an innocent DM gone right.
Remember to be respectful, polite, complimentary (but not over-the-top), genuine, interested in more than just her looks, patient, and willing to take things offline if all goes well. That way, you can better understand whether there's potential for something more without the constraints of communicating through a screen.
And if she says no, don't take it too personally. There are plenty of other fish in the sea.
