The beauty of today’s dating app world is that we have hundreds of opportunities to meet people at any one time. This expands our dating horizons and exposes us to people we might never otherwise meet.
The downfall of today’s dating app world is that we have hundreds of opportunities to meet people at any one time. This encourages us to be completely non-committal, and makes it very difficult to decipher who is seriously ready to date and who is not.
Thankfully, there are still some telltale signs that someone is serious about getting to know you and you aren’t just another number in their rolodex. These three signs came long before dating apps ever existed and have been tested + proven over time, so pay close attention:
1) They are Responsive and Reliable.
2) They are Fascinated and Engaged.
3) Their Timing is appropriate.
There’s an old adage that says “if they wanted to, they would.” If he wanted to see me, he would make plans! If she wanted to get to know me, she would stop talking about herself all the time! Maybe that’s true, maybe not...people are complex, and we’re not mind readers. What I do know is that if they show you that they’re responsive and reliable, fascinated and engaged, and their timing is appropriate, they mean business.
And by the way, it is only in the modern dating era that these 3 standards seem like a high bar to reach; these are minimum-requirement-indicators of whether or not someone is serious about you. It is not too much to ask.
