Virtual meeting

Today, there are 26% single women and 42% single men in France. And this number is rising all the time, and certainly hasn't been reduced in recent months as a result of the pandemic we're going through and repeated confinements. While some people are alone by choice, a large number of singles claim to be looking for love at first sight, for the relationship that will change their daily lives and enable them to start building a life together. For this reason, users of dating sites and apps are becoming more and more numerous. But is it really possible to find love on the Internet? virtual dating applications ? How can you be sure that you're not wasting your time and, above all, that you won't be disappointed by a virtual encounter? Unfortunately, there's no magic formula, and facing disappointment when looking for love is almost inevitable. However, you can put all your chances on your side by taking the time to get to know the people you're meeting. Indeed, while virtual dating may seem easier, especially for shy people, it's not necessarily for everyone: some people need time to open up, aren't very good at putting themselves forward or are reluctant to the idea of revealing themselves to another person via a telephone or computer. Taking the time to talk and get to know each other without rushing things is therefore essential. The choice of dating site on which you wish to make a virtual encounter is also very important: some sites are based solely on physical criteria, for example, which leaves little room for emotional love and the creation of affinities, which are nonetheless essential to the construction of a stable and lasting couple. We therefore advise you to use a virtual dating site like Yousoon, which directs you directly to people with whom you have an affinity. common interestsIt's a great way to avoid disappointment.

Slow dating

Visit romantic encounters cause us a great deal of excitement and impatience. All too often, we tend to rush into things without taking the time to get to know the person in front of us, whether through a virtual encounter or face-to-face. While the excitement of getting to know someone for the first time is perfectly understandable, it can quickly turn into self-sabotage: knowing little about a person with whom you're planning to make a long-term commitment can be the cause of many disappointments. For this reason, "slow dating" is becoming increasingly popular, both in France and abroad. Coming straight from the United States, this concept is based on taking one's time when making a virtual encounter, as opposed to what can be offered by dating sites based on chain meetings and a sea of profiles that scroll by without you taking the time to linger. The aim: to learn to really discover the people with whom you seem to have an affinity, whether you've met them professionally, as a friend, or on a dating app. This method is perfect and very healthy. It allows each of us to reveal ourselves little by little, as we go along, creating a relationship of trust and friendship before considering moving on to something more serious. How does slow dating work in practice? It's very simple: once you've met someone you like and who seems to meet your expectations, all you have to do is take your time and make sure you don't rush into anything. If it's a virtual meeting on a website or app, you can choose to chat online, or to meet quickly if you prefer this type of configuration. However, it's important not to think of the first meeting as the beginning of the relationship. It should be a pressure-free phase of discovery and seduction, during which you and your partner learn to get to know each other gently.

How do you go from the virtual to the real?

This is the problem faced by many users of dating sites: the transition from virtual to real encounters is daunting. You're afraid of disappointing the other person, of not meeting their expectations, of not knowing what to say to each other: a brake that, unfortunately, is responsible for the end of many relationships that could have led to something concrete and stable. Here are a few tips to help you take the plunge with greater serenity:

  • Don't rush things: if you don't feel ready yet, explain to the person you're talking to that you need a little more time. A negative reaction is possible, but it also reveals a lot about the person's personality.
  • Choose a public place, perhaps one you already know and feel comfortable in: this will help you release a little pressure on your first date.
  • If you're really anxious about this meeting, you can organize a meal with a few friends - with the agreement of the person you're talking to, of course. It's a great way to feel more relaxed.
  • Try not to put too much pressure on yourself: this first meeting doesn't commit you to anything. It can lead to something more serious, to a beautiful friendship or to a pleasant memory - there's no obligation. That's what slow dating is all about.

Easier said than done, right? Don't worry, we fully understand that going from a virtual meeting to a real one can be intimidating. That's why it's important to take your time and, above all, to communicate. Are you stressed? Worried about disappointing the other person? Talk it over with him/her - they probably have similar feelings, and will undoubtedly be able to help you put things into perspective. Communication is an essential part of any relationship, and this applies right from the first meeting, right from the first conversation. Don't forget: Yousoon allows you to discover people with whom you have affinities, so you're bound to find good topics of conversation to break the ice!
