Top 10 Mistakes Men Make When Contacting Women Online
Last updated: Oct. 24 2020 | 5 min read
Mistake #8: Sending her money or a credit card number
Yes, the ever popular Nigerian (or whatever country is in on it this month) money scam.
Social networking sites, including online dating sites, are plagued by scammers.
And guys you know are falling for it every day…
Remember, the whole “if it sounds too good to be true” idea still stands!
If your online profile is really bad, and all of a sudden a girl strangely resembling a supermodel emails you and promises to make all your dreams come true, take it slow.
And DO NOT send money or other financial information to make her come to you.
Mistake #9: Checking out her “really hot” nude photos on her personal website
The ever popular “cam girl” phenomenon is surprising scores of new men on a daily basis.
So, what’s a “cam girl?”
Well, let’s say you’re searching profiles on and run across this great looking girl. She looks friendly, approachable, and is wearing a highly suggestive outfit.
To make it better, her profile has a link to her “private website” where you can “see more of her”.
What luck! So you click on that link, and to your surprise, you have to “verify your age by providing a credit card number”. Hmmm.
If you want to browse an adult site, then proceed and enjoy. But recognize this for what it is ñ often a teenage high school male pretending to be a really hot girl in order to make money by sending happy surfers (read: you) to a pay-per-view adult site.
Mistake #10: Not knowing what you really want
The last blunder is actually by far the most important one. Put simply, most guys use the shotgun approach to dating and hope to hit something, anything. Then they wonder why they’re not happy with the women they meet. Not exactly the best approach for the most important aspect of your life, is it?
Before you join ANY online dating site, take a step back and figure out exactly what you’re looking for. what type of woman do you really want to meet today?
That way you don’t waste you time messaging a really great looking ‘single mom’ when you know full well that you don’t want children.
If you are an outdoorsman, you probably don’t want to spend time messaging a woman that tells you in her profile that she is allergic to the sun. (Yet another reason to actually read her profile.)
It will be well worth your time to understand what you’re really looking for!
