This will boost your ego and make you feel appreciated and precious. You will then setting up dates and even meeting in person some possible partners.

What now?

So you managed to go out with several persons you met online. Are you trying to grow those relationships or are you becoming super-critical and get back to the computer as soon as you can? There are a lot of cases when online dating gives you the hope for perfection, for something better all the time. It’s good to be selective but if you keep searching for better you will end up chasing dragonflies. You need to give in some time to get to know a person before judging if she is a match or not.

Try and be patient, let that woman unfold in front of you and only after that decide if it’s a good idea to go back online and continue searching. Perhaps what you discover after a few dates with a woman will even make you close your online dating account and remain happily with that woman.
