If this is someone that you like, you shouldn’t worry about whether it is too soon for a date.
You are both online dating for a reason.
If the ultimate goal is to meet a romantic partner, meeting for a date is obviously necessary.
If you like this person that you have been chatting with on an online dating site, you should ask them out on a date.
Oftentimes, people make the mistake of worrying that it is too soon to ask for that date.
They worry that if they were to ask now, they would ruin whatever momentum or rapport that they have been building with this person.
The problem with this approach is that you may lose out on an opportunity.
If you wait too long to ask a person out that you like on an online dating site, the person may lose interest.
Even if you finally ask them for that date, they may have reached a point where they are just not willing to meet you anymore.
The person’s romantic interest in you may have waned in the last several weeks that the both of you have been chatting.
That interest may have been really high initially.
However, being that you didn’t ask them for a date soon enough, they may have allowed that interest to falter and ultimately dissipate.
Someone else that they may have been talking to on the online dating site may have chosen to ask them out sooner.
They may have decided to accept this request.
Now they are going out on dates with the person who asked them out and you have basically become more of an online buddy to them.
This is someone that they can chat with to kill time but not someone that they are romantically interested in.
They have lost that romantic interest.
You shouldn’t allow yourself to make this mistake.
If you keep waiting for that “perfect” time to ask this person out for a date, you may lose them entirely as far as romance is concerned.
Remember that you are on an online dating site.
There are other people who are trying to talk to this person that you like.
Some of these people will eventually ask this person out on dates.
Even if this person likes you right now and would only like to go out with you and no one else at this time, they can only wait so long.
Eventually, if you don’t ask this person out, they will accept the request for a date from someone else that they are chatting with on the online dating site.
If they consequently relegate you to the role of an online buddy and nothing more, you will not have a chance with them romantically.
Even if you eventually ask them for a date, it would most likely be too late and they will turn you down.
Don’t worry about whether it is too soon for a date.
If you truly want to ask this person out, just do it.
If they feel that it is too soon for a date and that they would rather take a little bit more time getting to know you better, they will let you know.
