When you begin your search for love online, your biggest challenge is to read between the lines to tell who’s really ready for a long-term relationship. Fortunately for us, there’s a handy section of an online dating profile that usually says something along the lines of “What I’m looking for.” In general, many online daters are clear (and honest) about what type of relationship (or non-relationship) they’re truly seeking.Dating with Dignity has compiled a list of what to look for in an online dating profile so you can tell who’s relationship-ready. That said, if someone has listed what they’re looking for as “new friends” or “activity partners,” chances are they’re not looking for a serious relationship.If you’re looking for a casual relationship, that’s a person you’ll probably want to connect with.
However, it’s important to look closely for other clues as some members may put “looking for relationship” because he/she thinks that will render better results.
I remember a client who was so surprised that the guy she was dating told her he wasn’t looking for a relationship and just wanted to have “fun.” When she looked back at his profile after they’d stopped dating, she checked the “looking for” section and it actually said he was looking for a long-term “relationship.” So, where did she go wrong?
It’s easy to tell when someone IS relationship-ready if you see things like “looking for something meaningful” or even things as direct as “I’m looking for a serious relationship.” Then you’re on the right track in your search.
Remember to pay attention to what people say online, but do get to know them before passing any concrete judgments.
Unfortunately, she ignored some of the language within his “about me” section that talked about looking for someone to explore the city with, noting that he was “fine” if it leads to something more!
Typically (and this is especially true of those who are dating online) men will say what they mean and mean what they say.
How long do you have to be dating for before it is considered a long-term relationship?
