Five tips for
lesbian dating newbies

Have you ventured into the world of lesbian online dating yet? Are you curious to find out just what lesbian dating involves? Here are a few tips to help you out when you first start to explore online dating for lesbians so you can get the most from your experience.

1. Choose the Right Website

When you choose a lesbian online dating website, you’ll want to consider a number of factors. For example, do you choose a website that caters just for lesbians, or one that caters for heterosexual people as well? Many of the larger sites cater for both, but you might not feel comfortable using such a site, in which case there are a number of dedicated lesbian dating sites that you can use instead. Have a look around until you find a site that you think looks suitable, and then give it a go. If you don’t like it, you can always move onto the next one.

2. Write Your Profile Carefully

As with any online dating site, lesbian dating involves writing a profile. When you come to writing your profile, there are a few rules to follow to ensure you get noticed. These include being specific and avoiding clichés, using an honest physical description and focusing more on what you are looking for than what you are not looking for. Also make sure you check it over for correct spelling and grammar – you don’t want to make the wrong impression right at the start.

3. Use a Real Photo

Always use a photo on a lesbian online dating site because photos will generate a lot more interest. Use a real picture, and make sure that it portrays you honestly. For example, if you have just shaved off all your hair then you should use a photo that depicts this.

4. Get Chatting at Your Own Pace

After you’ve posted your profile and other women are starting to take an interest, the next stage of lesbian online dating involves starting to chat with other lesbians. The most common way to do this is via the instant messaging (IM) feature. When you first start to use this, always be yourself and don’t be pressured into saying anything that you don’t feel comfortable with. Another option is to just send emails to start until you feel ready to progress onto the IM feature, then when you’re ready you can hand over your phone number.

5. Be Honest Early On

Sometimes with lesbian online dating you may be tempted to be creative with the truth due to the fact that you are hiding behind your profile. The key advice is to be honest right from the start. Are you divorced? Do you have kids? Are you bisexual? Do you smoke? If there’s anything that you think other lesbians should know about you then it’s best to get it out the way early.

Start Your Online Dating Experience

Ready to get started with lesbian online dating? Online dating is a great way for lesbians to meet new women, whether you are looking for a long-term relationship, friendship or something else. Follow these quick tips and they’ll help you to get the most from your lesbian online dating experience.
