There is no shortage of sites claiming that they’re the best way to meet cute singles in your area. But how often do they end up being scams with slim pickings?
It’s hard to know which sites to invest your time and energy in. Then, even when you find a good site, how do you make a stranger feel comfortable enough to meet up in person or share their private photos?
Whether you’re looking for a hookup or something more serious, here are five tips for upping your game.
It’s no secret that Snapchat is a great way to exchange nudes, but did you know there are sites specifically meant to facilitate Snapchat hookups?
It’s true. Some sites match you with people looking to exchange dirty photos via Snapchat. If you’re looking to add a roster of playmates to your Snapchat contacts, these resources are perfect.
Use Tinder Rather Than Shagle, Hinge or Bumble
Tinder has been around for a while, and it has retained its reputation as being more for casual sex than long-term dating relationships. If you’re looking for a hookup, stick to Tinder.
Other dating sites like Hinge or Bumble are often used when people are looking for a relationship. Remember that it’s always better to be honest about what you’re looking for upfront when online dating.
An app like Tinder is more likely to guarantee you’ll match with people who are down for a casual fling. Plus, it updates to always show you matches in your immediate area. That means that if you’re on a trip to Vegas, you’ll be able to match with people there. Perfect for a steamy one-night stand.
Start the Conversation Out Slow
There are definitely people looking for hookups that will want to get right down to business with the dirty talk and sexy photos. However, it doesn’t hurt to play it cool at first with a more chill opening message. You don’t want to scare people off by coming on too strong.
Remember that there’s a ton of space between “how are you” and “you DTF?” Try asking a potential hookup what kind of mood they’re in tonight to get your flirt on in a subtle way.
Choose Your Photos Wisely
There are a lot of catfishers out there, pretending to be people they’re not. You want to make sure your photos are flattering but consistent. For example, sending someone a close-up photo of eight pack abs and then saying you have no more photos is a quick way to get blocked.
Many people will want to exchange photos in real-time, so they know you’re legit. Make sure you look your best before starting a conversation.
Believe it or not, humor goes a long way with online chatting, even if you’re just looking for sex. Laughter eases tension and builds trust. It’s a great way to make whoever you’re chatting with feel uninhibited and playful.
Let’s face it: exchanging nudes and talking dirty with strangers is a bit of a strange situation. Poking fun at the absurdity of it will loosen you both up.
The more relaxed both parties feel, the more likely you’ll be willing to share your fantasies and make them happen.
More people than ever are trying online hookups and dating. There are plenty of attractive people to meet if you know where to look and how to seal the deal.
Using the right sites and following certain basic etiquette will ensure you meet the right people and then make the right sexy connection.
