Leaving online dating behind and going 'face-to-face'.
Leaving online dating services behind and going 'physical' will advance the relationship forward faster towards finding romance and perhaps true love. Therefore aiming for a face-to-face meeting should be the primary goal of your internet dating.
You will find lots more about each other more
quickly by using the phone than using electronic messaging
provided by your dating agency. And certainly after your first meeting in person
you will know if you 'clicked' or not. Even if the chemistry was
not there, you had probably found out things about each other
during your first face to face meeting, than you could have ever
found out while using your dating agency messaging service, no matter how many months you spent
messaging or using online matchmaking services.
To decide when to leave your dating agency service behind and enter the 'real' world is a
matter of mutual agreement. It is quite likely that one of you
will be ready to make this change sooner, while the other will
want to think about it, indicating that she or he is not quite
ready. Some gentle hints may help you along and you may start
phoning, or you may not, in which case just stay with your online dating
service and continue
It is usually a good idea not to use any
pressure to get a decision. The person who wants to move on sooner
could start the ball rolling by giving the other person his or her
phone number, perhaps with a comment 'when you feel like it,
please phone me'. Then again he or she should patiently continue
online dating and messaging. The ball is now with the other
person, who is free to decide to phone or not to phone. If that
person decides to go ahead and phone then all is well, as both of
you remained in full control of the relationship. If there is no
phone call, you may still stay with your dating agency and
continue messaging while waiting for the phone call to arrive.
