8 Subtle Signs You'll Have Chemistry When You Meet An Online Match IRL
I Mistook Digital Chemistry For Real Life Intimacy & I'll Never Make The Same Mistake Again
As much fun as online dating can be, there are still plenty of aspects of it that can be nerve-wracking — like not knowing whether someone you matched with will turn out to be a total dud or the next love of your life. Of course, it pretty much goes without saying that until you actually meet up with someone, there's no way to know for sure what your IRL connection will be like, but that doesn't mean you can't still be on the lookout for signs you'll have chemistry with an online date. This is why I encourage my clients to meet as many people as possible. I give this advice with the caveat to keep the first meet short to avoid dating fatigue. If the brief micro-date goes well, then invest more than 30 minutes of your time on the next date. Instead of getting all worked up about how a date will or won't go, try entering the first date with no expectations , and simply use it as an opportunity to get a feel for how you vibe with your date.

As an online dating expert and coach, one of the top questions I'm frequently asked is, which method is better? Is online dating versus meeting someone offline best to find the perfect date or someone to spend the rest of your life with?
Having chemistry in relationships and being compatible with someone are not always the same thing. Everyone kind of assumes we know what compatibility and chemistry mean and whether we have them or not. These ideas are there or they are not. Instead, most dating advice focuses on the nuts and bolts of dating: what to say, when to say it, how to not look like an ass-face.
