Hi @kris, welcome to Play Safe! Sorry to hear you’re not having the best time during online dating, it can be really difficult!
That said, I encourage you to take the pressure off yourself and treat it like any other conversation! Don’t think you have to put on a certain “flirty” act, sometimes genuine conversations go a lot further. Ultimately I look at the app as a way to meet people, have a quick chat, and then transition that to a real life date if we’re both comfortable, because that is where most of the connection and flirting will happen.
If you’re having a conversation over text with someone already and it’s going well, don’t be afraid to lightly tease or be sarcastic – for example, if you’re talking about TV shows and they say “oh I really love xyz show” you can say “No way me too! I guess people with good taste think alike ;)” or something like that.
Let me know if that sort of helps! All the best with your online dating. We’re always here to chat.
Hey @kris, I totally know what you mean that it can be challenging to flirt online. I would agree with @champagnepapi that it takes the pressure to ‘flirt’ off if you treat it like a conversation. Be chatty and always be yourself. I would also say that I find emojis useful to lighten the tone and be a bit more cheeky. Throw a wink in there every now and again!
