My Tips For Using Online Dating Apps



I thought that I would do another dating blog post as my previous one "My Experience: Why Tinder Shouldn't Be A Taboo Subject" turned out to be rather popular among my readers. I haven't really spoken much about my dating life here on my blog but I have vowed to do it more this year.

I have used dating apps for quite a while now. I started using them when I was 19 which I thought was an acceptable age to start using them. My main reason for using them is that I'm not really a club, pub or bar kind of person. Don't get me wrong I'd go to bar or pub but to eat or catch up with friends. 

I find that dating apps for me are the best way to find possible guys to date. I can choose who I want to talk to and things like how far away they live. What I like most is that if you don't connect you can simply unmatch without all of that awkwardness you get if you were to decline someone in person. 

I thought that I would put together a few tips for using online dating apps in case you have never used them before. Think of it as a guide of how to use dating apps as such but not from an expert more like a friend. 

1. Be Safe
Now this one is pretty self-explanatory but sometimes we forget that even though online dating is a modern thing it can still be dangerous. I always begin by telling at least one friend that I'm going on a date and where it will be taking place just in case something were to happen. 

If you are open with your parents then there's no problem in telling them as well. I tell my mum when I have a date, who it's with and what time she should expect me home. Obviously, sometimes I don't come home when I said I would but I always text her to tell her I'll be home later. It may sound a little OTT but if anything were to happen at least someone would know I was missing. 

2. Have Fun 

3. Stalk, Stalk, Stalk!
This is pretty obvious because nowadays it's so easy to find out a lot about a person before you meet them in real life. I always start with using their name and where they work because it's easy to find someone that way. If I can't find them on Facebook then I will use Linkedin (sort of like FB but for business). 

99.9% of the time I will find them and I can immediately tell if they are who they say they are. I'll then dig a little deeper and check out their Instagram if I can find one from their online dating app profile or their Facebook. This is just so that I know I'm going on a date with the person who is in the photos. 

I can safely say that by following these tips I have never been catfished yet....I also find that I feel a little less nervous meeting the person because I feel like I know them a bit already. You can find out a lot about someone from their social media accounts such as what they like and dislike, how they dress and what they like to do on the weekends. 

The way I find this socially acceptable is that any person can look me up on Google and find my blog, YouTube channel, Instagram and so on so a little stalking on my behalf wouldn't hurt anyone now would it. 

4. Don't Be A Catfish
What is the point? Because you will get caught out eventually. Just be who you are and if they don't like it then it's their loss. 

5. Stay Close To Home 
If it's your first time online dating then I would recommend choosing somewhere to meet up on your way home. That way if things go south you haven't got far to go home and you know the area that you are in. I usually pick somewhere central like Leciester Square which is on the same tube line as where I live. 

6. Do Different Dates 

7. Date A Lot Of People
Within reason...what I'm trying to say is go on a few dates before you make any decisions. Don't keep all your eggs in one basket. The first person you date may seem amazing but turn out not to be whereas the second person you may get on better with. Testing the water with dating is important before you fully comitt with someone I find. 

So those are most of my dating tips I have a few more up my sleeve so I may keep them for another blog post if this one is successful. I hope you guys like it as you seemed to really like the other one. I think that dating is a lot of fun and can be such a learning curve for yourself good or bad.

*3 Ways To Style A White Top In Autumn/Winter

A little while ago I was approached by the lovely team at Eimi Boutique who are a UK based online boutique for women. They are quite a new boutique as they only launched this year. They were very kind to reach out to me as they wanted to send me an item of clothing from their range as they loved my Instagram profile.

I was able to pick from any of their products so I chose this really cute white top. The Bailey Top is currently on sale for £12.50 at the time that this blog post goes live. I decided to choose this one as it can be styled all year round and the small details on the top are my favourite. You can also get 20% off your order by using my code ASIA20



1. Work Wear
The first outfit that I have chosen is a work outfit as I work full-time Monday to Friday. I have paired the top with some fitted trousers from H&M. I can wear whatever I want to work as long as it's smart and not provocative. I always tend to wear something that is quite simple but also looks like I made an effort.

Black and white are always a go to outfit for me as I just love the combination. I would probably put a cardigan on over the top as during the colder months just wearing this top won't be enough. If you work in a place where you have to wear professional clothing then a black blazer over the top would work just as well. 



2. Day Out With Friends
The second outfit I have put together is one that I would wear for a day out with friends. Unless I'm going out during the evening I tend to keep my day outfits very casual. I have teamed the top up with a pair of Primark jeans which are the only place where I can find jeans that fit me well. 

I then chose a light bomber jacket from H&M that would be easy take on and off if the weather decided to change. I love this outfit because the jeans and bomber combination gives a masculine feel but the top adds that feminine touch. It's definitely one of my go-to outfits as you can wear it to almost anything. 



3. A Day At Home With Family or Friends
The last outfit I have chosen is a comfy outfit. Leggings are always my go-to bottoms during the colder months. But I only tend to wear them at home as I don't feel that comfortable wearing them out unless I'm wearing a long top or thick leggings. The top I would probably only wear if we had family or friends over otherwise I would be in a hoodie and leggings. 

Again the top just adds that feminity to this outfit which makes it acceptable to wear around the house if you are having a family lunch or you have a BBQ with family and friends. As the evening gets colder I would throw on a hoodie or a jacket to keep my arms warm. 

Thank you so much to the team at Eimi Boutique for sending me this top I love it a lot and I know that I will wear it for many years. If you are looking for a few Autumn/Winter staples then definitely check out their website as they are always launching new items. You can also get 20% off your order by using my code ASIA20
