Social media has taken the world by storm. Men and women alike are using this platform to express themselves, make new friends and communicate with their loved ones in different parts of the world. It also paved the way for men and women to meet their future life partners even without seeing them in person first and foremost.

Did you know that many men are using social media to look for women they can date and hopefully fall in love with? It’s one of the easiest and fastest ways to meet other people. However, there are social media etiquettes you have to be aware of too especially when it comes to talking to women. Below are some of the most common social media mistakes you have to avoid when talking to the opposite sex.

Sending Your Nude Pics and Asking for Theirs Too


So what if you have that killer bod? It doesn’t mean those who see you in the nude will immediately appreciate your physique and fall in love with you. Mind you but despite how modern the world is today, many women are still conservative, and you can find many of them in social media. They are those who enjoy talking to you but get offended once you send them pictures showing your private parts.

Another huge mistake is asking the opposite sex for their nude pics too. Many men are guilty of this especially if they find the woman attractive and want to see more of her. Not all women are open to this kind of request, and some may feel offended and shut you out instantly. It’s a sign of rudeness and disrespect to ask a lady of her nude pic so be sure not to do that even if you’ve been dating online.

Talking About Yourself Most of the Time


Many men tend to talk a lot about themselves when talking to women in social media. They like to show off what they have and who they are. They get carried away most of the time without knowing the other person is no longer interested. Once you talk so much about yourself, it only shows how selfish, proud and arrogant you are. No woman wants that.

Instead of talking mostly about yourself, ask the woman some questions about her. Tell her to talk about herself so you can get to know her better. This way she’ll feel your sincerity towards knowing her for who she is instead of making her feel unimportant and make every conversation about you.

Immediately Asking Her Out on a Date


Women want to get to know you first before they agree to go on a date that’s why asking them out on your first chat is a real turn off. You don’t know each other yet, so chances are she’ll turn you down. You’ll be leaving an awful first impression if you’re coming on too strong. They will think of you as a playboy, someone who doesn’t even exert effort to get to know a woman first before asking them out.

Avoid this mistake by taking your time to know her first. You can do this by chatting with her often. Have meaningful conversations, talk about each other’s jobs, hobbies and more. You can even exchange photos of your travels, throwback photos if you wish and others. Once you have established a wholesome relationship with friends, you can move on to the next level. You can then ask her out on a real date and rest assured, she won’t say no.

Not Being Yourself


Many pretend to be somebody they’re not just to attract women on social media. Most of the time they’ll post edited or photoshopped pictures online or grab photos of others and post them as theirs. Worse, they act far from who they are; thinking women will find them more attractive if they possess traits that are different from what they possess.

Remember that honesty is the best policy and this holds true when it comes to being yourself. Never pretend to be someone you’re not. Just be yourself, allow your true colors to shine through. You’ll be loved for who you are.

Talking to the opposite sex is not so hard to do. Just bear in mind these mistakes you need to avoid, and you’re on your way to becoming a real pro when it comes to talking to women.
