Online dating may feel a little bit intimidating when you are a shy, inexperienced woman.
You may have already been besieged with messages from men.
Perhaps you weren’t expecting this.
Being a shy, inexperienced woman, you may have expected not to receive that much attention, if any, from men on an online dating site.
However, it is very common for women to get lots of messages from men on an online dating site.
These men don’t know that you are a shy, inexperienced woman.
They just see you as another woman on an online dating site that they are attracted to.
One of the best ways to handle all the messages that you are going to be receiving as a woman on an online dating site is to ensure that you don’t fall into the trap of believing that you have to respond to all of them.
Many shy, inexperienced women who start online dating often think that they have to send polite responses to men who send them messages, even when they are not interested in them.
You shouldn’t make this mistake.
If you send responses to all the men that you aren’t interested in just so as to be polite, you will be opening yourself up to abuse.
There are good men who will handle the polite rejection well and let you be.
However, there are men who will not take that polite rejection so well.
They will respond to you by rudely asking you why you are rejecting them or even telling you that you are not all that attractive anyway.
As a shy, inexperienced woman who is new to online dating, you may not be aware that something like this can happen when all you are trying to do is to politely let a guy know that you aren’t romantically interested in him.
However, this does happen on online dating sites, a lot.
It is always best to be equipped with knowledge before you take the plunge in online dating.
You don’t have to respond to every message that you get from men that you aren’t interested in on an online dating site.
In fact, it may be best that you refrain from responding to messages from men that you aren’t interested in altogether.
It is not your job to make these men feel better about themselves on an online dating site.
Also, as a shy, inexperienced woman on an online dating site, you need to be able to identify players.
Due to access to so many dating options, there are lots of players on dating sites.
If you are looking for a serious relationship, you should make sure that your time is not being wasted on someone who is only looking to hook up.
One of the most surefire signs that you are interacting with a player is when they only want to talk to you about sexual topics or flirt.
You may be trying to have a serious conversation with them but then they always pivot to a sexual topic or start flirting intensely.
This type of behavior lets you know that they are only looking to hook up.
Try not to allow their charm or good looks to keep you from discerning their behavior.
As a shy, inexperienced woman on an online dating site, a player can look at you as easy prey.
Prevent yourself from becoming their prey by being knowledgeable about how a player behaves.
