3. IF YOU’RE NOT FEELING IT, DON’T FORCE A RELATIONSHIP.
If you’ve gotten to know someone really well and you still don’t want to be in a relationship with them, you’re really not that into them. Even if you met on a dating app, this still applies. Stats show that 32% of users are just there to keep boredom at bay, so if you fall into that bracket, be aware that most apps aren’t intended for relationship swervers. While you’re busy swiping like crazy, don’t forget that there are real people behind those accounts and most are looking to build something real. Maybe dating apps aren’t the best place for you to avoid commitment.
4. BE HONEST FROM THE START SO THE PERSON YOU’RE INVOLVED WITH HAS A CHOICE.
Some people are just looking for someone to pass the time with. Maybe you like the comfort of having someone there who’ll always text you back, no lagging. Perhaps you want someone who’s always down for a chat, someone you can confide in who also gives great advice. Say that from the start! The sooner you do this the better since it gives the other person a chance to decide whether they’re on the same page or not.
5. DON’T WASTE SOMEONE ELSE’S TIME.
No one wants to feel as if they’ve wasted days, weeks, or even months worth of time and energy on someone who’s not committed to a real relationship. Not only is it hugely disappointing for whoever you’re chatting to since they probably have sky-high hopes at that point, it also makes you look selfish and inconsiderate. Even if you aren’t, your actions say otherwise.
