Is online dating new ground for you? Then it is perhaps not entirely obvious how to go about it and what way that might be the best to make contact with other people.

Rules that are carved in stone does not really exist when it comes to online dating. However, there are certain things that are important to consider regarding what to do so that the contact will become interested in you.

Today, around 25% of Swedes meet their partners through online dating, and our goal is to contribute to that number and help even more people find their true love. Thus, tips and advice can be appreciated. We would therefore like to offer some experiences we have noted from previous member's feedback:

DO’S & DONT'S
  • Do: Just take contact with the members you actually want to know after having gone through their profiles. It will ultimately make it easier for everyone, and you use your time right. In the long term, it will help other members who presented themselves insufficient to change their approach and actually get noticed by other members.
  • Don't: Do not start "Spamming" several members with the same standard content. It will most likely lead to irritation and your chance for a great start can be lost.
  • Do: Keep a cool tone to the one you write with and you will get so much more back. The same applies to the response you get. If it doesn't feel right, then it's obviously not something you should allow.
  • Don't: Approach with care and consideration and do not approach anyone as an arrogant jerk. It is neither something that will take you anywhere, nor something we allow.
  • Do: Keep a cool tone to the one you write with and you will get so much more back. The same applies to the response you get. If it doesn't feel right, then it's obviously not something you should allow.
  • Don't: Do not give out any of your contact information until you feel ready to take the dialogue further or meet in real Blinddate.com™.
  • Do: If another member does not show a mutual interest, it is important not to let emotions take over and instead accept the situation.
  • Don't: Do not get angry or rude if you get rejected, that is unnecessary. Remember that there are many more exciting members to familiarize yourself with.
  • Do: If another member does not show a mutual interest, it is important to accept the situation and not let your emotions take over. A good relationship is based on mutuality, a one-sided interest in a relationship may give difficulties and could have been avoided and replaced with better options.
  • Don't: If you get rejected or badly treated, waste no energy on dull altercation that leads nowhere. Remember that there are many other exciting members to familiarize yourself with.
  • Do: If another member asks you for money or your bank details, that most likely means that the person has no good intentions. We recommend that you then stop the contact with the person and report it to us.
  • Don't: Never give out any bank details. You will most likely be cheated out of your money.
  • Do: People use Blinddate.com™ to talk and get to know each other. Therefore, you will probably encounter opinions that do not match your own. Respect them! Do not start to engage in emotional arguments with members you have not yet gotten to know.
  • Don't: Show respect for the opinions of others and avoid aggressive arguments. Blinddate.com™ is not the right forum for this.
  • Do: Always be yourself! How cliché it may sound, it is how you will gain the most when looking for friendship and trust.
  • Don't: Do not try to become or act like someone you are not. This always shines through, sooner rather than later.
  • Do: Create a habit of telling a family member where you are going, who you meet and when you plan to go home from the date. Remember to always carry a fully charged cell phone.
  • Don't: Do not go on a date without telling a family member where you are going, who you meet, when you come home. Make also sure that you have battery left in your cell phone.
