9 Ways to Score Your First Remote Meet Up
If you haven’t got a partner yet and plan on making the best of your time, the first thing you can do is keep in mind that your first ever meet up will be an online date. Just because it’s online doesn’t mean that you can wing it. You’ll still have to put in the effort and the thought. So here you go, mentioned below are nine ways you can get to score your virtual meet up for sure.
1. Be Confident in front of a Camera.
Like any other social interaction, you have to be confident. If you’re chatting up a person that you might be into and you want to score a virtual date, you have to sound secure and comfortable with the camera. Know that girls are sage if they sense weakness, they most probably will back off. You might have the most fantastic display picture in the world, but if you cannot carry a conversation (now remotely), the chances are that you’re getting sidelined.
2. Be Patient
Whether it’s a girl or a guy, everyone likes a confident enough person to make the first move. So, if you’ve been talking to someone for quite some time, then a remote date is the next step. However, if you just started texting that person yesterday, right now might not be the best time for a remote meet up so be patient.
3. Casually slide the idea.
Don’t demand a virtual meet up. Slide the idea and get their feedback on the matter. As human beings, we love the concept of choice; if you take that away from us, you’re going to seem entitled and obnoxious.
4. Don’t directly hit her up.
If you’ve added a girl and she seems like a calm person, don’t hit her up directly. I know all of us are bored out of our minds, but hitting someone up for a video chat is insane. Just yesterday, a random follower started calling me on Instagram, and trust me, that’s the last he’ll ever see of me. I blocked him. Calling someone you hardly know just because they look cool is the worst thing you could ever do, especially if you like the person.
5. Think of a fun thing to do together
If it’s your first time getting to know a person online and you want to score an online date, the best thing to do is think of something fun. For example, float the idea of watching a movie together and say,” I wish we could see a movie together,” and if they respond positively, that can be your cue to pop the question. Before you know it, you’ll be sharing your screens while eating a bag full of popcorn
6. Be genuine
Whether it’s an online conversation or an actual meet up the best way to make sure you score a date is by being on your best behavior. So try not to stalk their profile and come off as a stalker. Be genuine. Compliment when you feel like it, be expressive and show them that you are actually who you say you are and not some weirdo trying to get laid virtually.
7. Don’t be also persistent.
Everyone likes a person who knows what they want, but there’s a fine line between being persistent and being straight up annoying. Know that consent is critical here, just because it’s online doesn’t mean that you can go about saying whatever you want to whoever you want.
8. Be a gentleman
Just because you’re trying to get a person to meet you online doesn’t mean that basic principles of decency don’t apply. While you can’t hold the doors, you can at least be courteous towards the other person. Know that manners are the new sexy. Make sure you brush upon them.
9. Be forthcoming
Know that everyone likes someone they can get a sense of home from. No one likes a person who seems stuck up or distant. So try to leave your attitude somewhere else and engage honestly. Once you start being genuine and forthcoming, you’ll get a chance to meet up remotely in no time.
What is Next?
The question pops up in my mind quite often, and unless the scientist invents phones that can create holograms, I think remote dating will have to suffice. While some people might feel that this lacks intimacy and therefore is not worth it, modern problems call for modern solutions.
If you’ve gone through the article mentioned above, you now know what you need to do, get your phones, download those apps, and get started. This time is crucial to your relationship, and how you act during it will define the next steps of your relationship. So if you care about the next person, hit them up and take them on a beautiful date, you wouldn’t let this situation come in the way of true love now, would you?
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. -Ways to Score for a First Time Remote Meet Up
