5 Signs That Your Online Date Could Lead to Lasting Love
Be honest. Every time you check your inbox, are you hoping for a message from that certain beauty you met online? Do you get butterflies when you see her name pop up on your home screen?
This could be the start of something special… or it could just be a little fling. Are there signs that let you know if your online date could lead to lasting love? You’re in luck, just keep reading!
1. There’s no stop and go
When online dating, you’ll encounter a lot of people who are good at pulling the disappearing act. You’ll be mid-conversation, when – poof! – they disappear for two weeks and then appear again as if nothing ever happened. If you’re talking to someone who is very consistent in their frequency of communication – and that frequency is frequent – that means a few good things.
First, it means you are probably the only person they are talking to. They don’t have time to message a dozen people multiple times a day. Second, it probably means that they are ready to prioritize love. They don’t just forget about their online dating account because work got busy or guests came into town.
2. You want a date at the same time
You both hit the, “perhaps we should meet” point at the exact same time. Something about that last conversation had you feeling a little different about the state of things.
Odds are, if your timing matches up on that, it will match up on other things, like when you say “I love you” or when you decide to move in together.
3. You email about the little things
Do you feel the need to email someone about every funny thing that happens in an elevator, or in line at the grocery store? Are you thrilled to read their similar messages? That’s wonderful. Why? Because 90 percent of life is insignificant, minute, and just silly.
You want to be with someone who makes the small parts of life fun and entertaining – someone whose perspective and humor on life amuses you. Also, if you’re thinking of someone when even the tiniest thing happens, they must have caught your attention somehow.
4. You define “partner” the same way
You’ll find a lot of people online “looking to be treated like a princess” or “looking for their princess.” Good. Those two should meet. Everyone has a different idea of what purpose a partner should serve in their life.
To you, is a partner a best friend? Is it someone you want to share every little thing with, or, would you reserve some info for just your friends? Get into conversatins with someone online about detailed ways they want a partner involved in their life. If your criteria match up almost eye to eye, you’d most likely have a very smooth relationship.
5. You lose the sense that you met online.
When you just completely fall into a quality and effortless relationship with someone, it will feel weird when people ask you, “so how’d you meet?” We associate online dating with effort — something you don’t associate a quality relationship with.
Also, when it’s just right, the person slips into our life so seamlessly, it feels like you could have just met them at a bar on any given night. You feel like, put in your presence in any way, you would have ended up together regardless. If you feel funny saying, “we met online.” you’ve found the pea to your pod and a good sign that your online date could lead to lasting love.
