People may think that online dating is an easier way to introduce yourself to a potential partner—but that's not always the case. In fact, connecting with someone for the first time on an online dating site may be more difficult than walking up to someone at the bar and introducing yourself. For one, you can't see body language which sometimes helps with your words. Secondly, not everyone is a great writer. They can't convey in writing the impression they want to give. Writing the first message to introduce yourself to that someone who catches your eye on an online dating site is quite a task. Follow these tips to make the process easier.
