Dating Topics You Can’t Go Wrong With

Typically in both online and offline dating, the first thing that draws your attention to someone is their physical appearance. After that, of course, the only way to turn an initial spark into a real connection is to start a conversation. Here are four go-to dating topics to discuss with women that will set your relationship on a right course.

Dating Topics You Need To Stick To If You Want A Guaranteed Good Start

Her friends

A women will reveal a lot about herself by the way she talks about her friends. Are they adventurous, outgoing and crazy? Or do they like to stay in and watch TV or read books? Most likely, her friend group will have a mix of both. Many aspects of a woman’s personality will be reflected in the other women she spends her time with.

Pop culture

When you’re meeting a woman for the first time, it’s unlikely that you have many common experiences, let alone shared acquaintances. Pop culture serves as a neutral common ground where you can establish similar interests, or learn about something unfamiliar to you. Sports and books are fair game, but it’s even safer to start with music and movies, which are generally more widely consumed.

Travel

Even if you or the woman you’re speaking with haven’t traveled much, the topic of travel opens up discussions of goals and future aspirations. A woman’s answer to What’s your dream vacation? tells you about her desires for exploration, relaxation or both. And if she has traveled, asking Where’s the strangest place you’ve ever been? gives her the opportunity to tell a story that will get you both smiling and laughing.

Animals

If you’re one of those guys that divides all of humanity into the categories of dog people and cat people, this topic will help you out tremendously. Or maybe you’ll meet a woman with a deep affection for her guinea pig, tortoise or snake. Regardless, women (like men) love talking about their pets, and, with any luck, the enthusiasm she has for the most important animal in her life will carry over into your conversation.

As you’re talking to her, make sure to read her verbal and physical cues. Not all women have the same interests, and they like to talk about different things. But if you can figure out what a woman is passionate about, you’re off to a great start in making a connection.

How To Make Your Online Dating Experience As Good As It Can Be

Many people prefer online dating to in-person dating because they feel less pressure and it gives them a chance to truly realize what they’re looking for. Others, however, go the other way, using the technology to do broad, quick, thoughtless searches for companions. Here are three ways to avoid falling into that trap of a bad online dating experience.

Online Dating Experience Is How You Make It

Be honest about what you’re looking for.

People participate in online dating for dozens of reasons. Some people are looking for a life partner, some people are looking for friendship, some people are looking for a purely physical relationship—and all of those things are fine! The problems arise when you lie to yourself (and others) about what it is you want from the online dating experience. Keep it real, and you’ll be much better off in the long run.

Avoid “algorithms.”

Some of the bigger dating websites out there claim to be able to mathematically pair you with people you’ll be compatible with. On AsianDate, we steer clear of algorithm-based matching because we know that not only do these services sometimes cost hundreds of dollars, but, truth is, they don’t usually work. If you’re looking for a “real” dating experience, turning to mathematical formulas is a step in the wrong direction.

Take the time to read profiles.

In a world where some people consider swiping right on their Tinder app to be a romantic experience, it can be easy to forget that the key component of forging a connection with someone is, well, actually getting to know them. Online dating offers the great feature of user profiles, which provide you with insight on personalities and preferences. Remember, people are more than their pictures.

What’s great about these tips? They’re all easy to do. Online dating has evolved into a rich, complex experience over the years, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to engage with it in a deep, meaningful way.

Dos And Don’ts Of Searching For Love Online

Thanks to popular demand, we’re back with more dos and don’ts of online dating. Don’t forget to check out our other dos and don’t posts, but before that find out what you should and shouldn’t do when you are searching for love online.

Searching For Love Online Will Be Easier When You Learn This

DO: Move things forward

Emailing and messages are a great way to start, but you can only get to know someone so well from written exchanges. At a certain point, it’s times to make things verbal and, eventually, visual. When the time is right, AsianDate’s Call Me and CamShare features are a great way to advance your correspondence.

DON’T: Move too quickly

Phone calls and CamShare are awesome, but not on the first exchange. Don’t set up a phone call with a woman you’ve barely talked to—it will be awkward for both of you.

One of the girls on AsianDate says: “Letters and emails might seem a little impersonal, but it’s actually really charming when a guy puts time into writing a thoughtful note. That definitely is something that would make me want to get to know someone better.”

DO: Say what you like in a woman

It’s totally cool to tell a woman the traits that you want in a partner. If you’re looking for someone who loves nature and traveling and wants a long-term relationship, then there’s no point in wasting your time talking to the queen of the Netflix marathon who just wants to be friends.

DON’T: Talk about your ex

It can be easy to get caught up in comparisons, but trust us: talking about your ex-lady is always a bad move. Even if you’re telling your new gal how much better she is, she’s probably not buying it—she’s wondering why you’re still thinking of your ex at all.

One of the girls on AsianDate says: “I once had a man tell me directly that he wasn’t looking for anything serious. He sounded kind of apologetic about it, but it was great. I wasn’t looking for anything serious, either, so we immediately knew we were on the same page.”

The Reality Of Dating Today: Truths You Need To Face

As much as some of us would like to boil it down to a science, love is simply unpredictable. Even if you have a “type,” you never really know which mysterious woman across the bar is going to catch your eye. And even if you’re in a romantic slump, you can never rule out meeting the woman of your dreams on any given night. But, all of that is more likely to happen if you are aware of the reality of dating nowadays.

What Science Says About Reality Of Dating These Days

Fortunately, we have online dating to give us at least some insight into the ways of love and attraction. Because of its technological element, online dating lends itself to research much better than in-person dating. Here are three studies that were done on online dating, and what we can take away from them.

Pew Research Center: Many online daters never meet in person.

Pew Research, one of the most reliable sources for social surveys, found that almost exactly one-third of online daters have never met a single match in real life. It seems as if, for many, online dating has become a romantic experience in and of itself. While many approach it with the objective of eventually meeting someone in person, others have found the conversation and companionship they were looking for without leaving the online experience.

ConvergEx Group: Online dating saves you money.

$6400, to be exact. ConvergEx took a financial approach to their study, calculating that the amount of money saved on dates over periods of months is typically in the thousands. The study was applied to couples who met online and eventually became married, but the principle holds true for those who never even meet in person. If you’re meeting online instead of in a restaurant, that’s a lot of extra cash in your pocket.

AnswerLab: Men don’t spend enough time reading profiles.

This study from AnswerLab used far more than anecdotal evidence to support its claims. With advanced eye-tracking technology for measurement, the study gauged, among other things, how much time men and women spent looking at the profiles of potential matches. Surprise, surprise: Men spent 50 percent less time reading profiles than women did. This isn’t a shocker; it’s no secret men trust their immediate instincts when it comes to attraction. But maybe they could learn something from the ladies: It never hurts to know a little more about a romantic interest.

What is just as interesting as these individual studies is the fact that they were even performed at all. In the last decade, online dating has become a mainstream phenomenon that’s shaped the love lives of millions all over the world. When something’s so influential that it merits research by financial firms and use of eye-tracking devices, you know it’s affecting culture in a big way, and that’s the undeniable reality of dating also.So, if you haven’t already started, what are you waiting for?
