So you’ve looked at some of the online dating apps available, and you’ve decided to try them out. You set up an account and follow the instructions to set up your profile. You enter some personal information, and you’re in. But what if you want to add someone to your list, but you don’t have the information to do so?
Do you need a serious rules list for those “friends” you set up on there? With online dating apps, you’re probably used to getting new friends without asking for their contact information, but that’s not usually the case. That’s one of the reasons why it’s not advised to ask friends for their contact information. To begin with, you’re giving out your contacts’ personal details, and in fact that information may be of great use to somebody else, and if they find out, they may decide to harm you, or even worse, you yourself. Also, you could lose some of your contacts over something you did wrong.
Here’s another reason to stay away from asking for this information. While you could get new friends, and you could set up a new friendship, it would take a bit more time, and this would actually take the better part of a week, depending on how many times you asked for someone’s contact information. Furthermore, you could miss new people in your list. And once you miss them, chances are they will disappear from your list very soon. For that reason, if you really want some of your contact information, you should keep quiet about it. Don’t mention it to anybody, and don’t get suspicious about who you’re hanging out with. These online dating apps are not like the offline dating apps, where you can easily meet a prospective date and talk to them for a while. If you set up any form of chat with somebody, you’re at risk of being caught by the online dating service, and then you will end up finding out that you were lying about a lot of things, and you may end up having to pay for that.
In fact, you should give any new person a chance. It’s much easier to leave you profile empty and see how they act around you. This is because you’ll already know whether they’re going to be trustworthy, or just a cheater, as opposed to a person you’ve met on a dating site. In other words, don’t be too hasty to judge anybody. After all, you want to build a good relationship with the person you’re chatting with, so be kind to them. Don’t take everything about a person at face value.
