Should You Use Emotes When Dating Online?

When you’re dating online, every single impression you make counts. So the question eventually becomes: are emoticons cute, or immature? Do they help clarify your conversation, or do they just make things even more confused? This might seem like a minor touch, but women will use almost any excuse not to answer a message. If you don’t make the right call you could be “winky-face”ing yourself out of a great date. When You’re Trying to Joke Tone is very difficult to convey online. What might seem like a harmless joke to you could be harsh to her. She might not realize that you’re having a laugh about something and think that you’re serious. When you’re trying to joke, tease, or use sarcasm an emoticon can actually help clear that up. “Nooo, I hate that band! ;P” is a lot different from, “Noo, I hate that band!” If you’re saying anything that shouldn’t be interpreted literally, it doesn’t hurt to throw in a smilie face at the end to make it clear to her that you’re kidding.

Hobbies Women Want You to Have

Some women might not want woodworking to happen in the garage, and some women might not want a bird feeder in the backyard, but all women have certain ideas about the hobbies their perfect men should have. If you don’t have a woman to worry about yet, don’t fear. You can still enrich your own life with great hobbies that will also appeal to a woman when you meet her.
