A dating story tlc
"Don't let online dating stop you from being social, going out with friends, and being open to who your loved ones think could be good matches.
You never know when/where you could meet someone you really like." It’s okay to have criteria that you’re looking for, like someone who's kind and empathetic.
But “too much information” means different things to different people and it’s tough to gauge where people are with sharing.
So, keep in mind that sharing a ton up-front, if you’re doing it with someone who’s like you, can mean great connection and more intimacy, but if they’re not on the same page, it could feel like too much too soon, or it can be a sign of a mismatch.
But if you’ve gone on three or four dates, and you’re pretty sure you both like each other, just be honest about your feelings. However, keep in mind, if you've been on what feels like a bunch of dates with someone, and they're still seeing other people, Firstein says that could mean that they aren't ready for something serious with you.
Again, you won’t really know until you talk about it.
Because even if a date goes well, there's still a chance you may never hear from them again, she says.But Sussman recommends refraining from doing the really deep research — like what their hobbies were in middle school — so that you can go into a date without any preconceived notions (that may or may not be true) about who the person is or what they're really like.
