Are you making these mistakes when you're swiping right?
We all know the usual advice - smile in your profile photo, ask questions and stand out from the crowd, but if you're making these mistakes you could be shooting (instead of Cupid's-arrowing) yourself in the foot:
1. You're waiting too long to meet: If you're having a good conversation with your match online, don't leave it more than a few days without suggesting a face-to-face first date. Too long without meeting and you'll lose momentum.
2. You've got too many photos: More than 3 photos is often uncalled for, and you'll lose the punch of your favourite shots. Don't feel you have to share a whole gallery, the idea is to spark interest and encourage people to want to know more!
3. You're matching too much: If you find yourself often refreshing your apps for new members, take a break. Online dating fatigue will mean you're more likely to make poor choices with your matches, and you'll become frustrated which will play out in your dates.
