Rules of online dating sites

Last-minute offers used to mean you were a second choice, and the advice was to save face and your self-respect by saying, “Nope.” But with the ability to find a potential match now sped up to the nth degree, that rule has been turned on its head.

Apps such as Tinder have spoiled us for choice and made it OK to be dating multiple people at once.

“Someone can have a fantastic date, but when they get an email [from a dating service] with three other matches,” says Maria Avgitidis, dating coach and founder of Agape Match in Midtown, “fear of missing out takes effect.” But it’s important that everyone is up front about dating other people.

“You have to be really clear on what you want,” says Lindsay Chrisler, a professional dating coach based in Hell’s Kitchen. “Everything goes down over text now, especially between millennials,” Manley says.

Agape Match’s Avgitidis says that dating sites have seen a big uptick in people noting their political preferences on their profiles.

“I used to say, ‘Don’t let ideology get in the way of love,’ [but] I think when people meet other people, they want to know what their values and lifestyles are,” she says.

It was a crapshoot with lousy odds, considering the amount of time, energy, and effort expended compared with the number of people with whom you came into contact. There are now dating sites for Christians, Catholics, Jews, seniors, single parents, even the "casual" dater, and certainly more to come. Don’t let the anxious thoughts take over your mind. While it was difficult for me, I can say that for each person I meet, I find out something more about myself and what I want.

If you are single and just entering the world of internet dating, here are a few suggestions: Finally, dating sites are not panaceas; they are just another way to connect with other people. Push away all the ‘What if I…’ type questions; Remind yourself of the positives. A first date has the potential for future love and happiness. That, I think, is the most important key for finding someone and for a lot of things in life.

Just don’t overdo it, and remember that humor and tone don’t always come through in a text.

“[Texting] is a great way to flirt, maybe give them a taste of who you are,” says dating coach Chrisler.

Foltz, 29, says it can be tricky, but that gender norms are still at play.

“I have a more masculine energy, so I usually pay on the first date,” she says.

Go online, sure, but remember to bring your honesty, integrity, values, and principles with you. The first time I began, I was a beginner at it and I was living at home and I didn't have a lot of confidence and it didn't work out.
