3 tips on keeping dating stress-free in 2018

Pat Benatar said it best when she sang, "love is a battlefield". While not every date is going to produce fodder for a love song, there is no doubt about the fact that, sometimes, the dating game can feel like anything but a game. If you are struggling to keep the stress out of your dating game, read on to have the ultimately enjoyable experience using dating apps in 2018! 

Be yourself

Sure, it's cliche, but for good reason. In an age of carefully crafted online dating profiles and airbrushed Instagram posts, it's tempting to project an image of yourself so heavily curated that it barely resembles the real you. To be clear, we're not suggesting that you sport your Sunday sweats on a first date, or air your dirty laundry to the cute stranger that you just met. What we are saying, it's just not possible to create a genuine connection with a date while being anyone but yourself. 

Don't overdo the DM

Ironic though it may be, experts agree that overreliance on digital communication is a surefire way to end a relationship before it's even started. Of course, it can help you develop a rapport once a dating app has connected you with someone you're into, but too many texts can create false intimacy and unrealistic expectations in the early stages of a relationship. 

Let your date know what you're looking for

There's nothing fun about being pragmatic on the first date, but it sure beats the agony of wondering whether or not you and your date are on the same page. Whether you're looking for something casual or serious, do let your date know. If you are on the same page? Then you can get to the good part - enjoying your time together. If you're not on the same page, then you can save the both of you a lot of time and stress! 

Whether you're searching for your soulmate, or just hoping to grab a drink with someone new, we believe that dating should be an exciting and rewarding adventure. Swiping, clicking and tapping through dating apps should be anything but boring! At BYBER, we want you to enjoy the thrill of making more awesome connections than ever before.
