Are You a Perpetual Prowler?

Although online dating can open up a world of options for you, it can also open up a world of frustrations. When there's an endless supply of potential connections, it's hard to be satisfied with just one. Even though you've had a few dates with a potentially great girl, you might find yourself continuing to looking online to see if there's someone better out there.

Preserve Your Options
As you first start to date a new woman, you're naturally wondering if you are truly compatible. It makes sense to keep your options open for the first few dates. After all, she might decide she's not that into you, or vice versa. No sense getting invested in a girl who's not really your type. At this point, there's no harm in keeping your eyes open for a backup plan.

Learn to Focus
However, if you've had three or four dates and you still think she's got great potential, consider giving the online dating search a break. If you're constantly looking for a new babe, you're not likely to give the current one enough attention and energy to make it work. So even if she could be your almost perfect match, you'd never know it. You might be so busy chatting up the new girl in town that you don't recognize everything that the girl next door has to offer.

Resist Temptation
When you feel you have a solid relationship with a woman you met online, you'd be smart to hide your dating profile. Otherwise, it's hard to resist those flirty e-mails from the latest and greatest potential matchup. If you give in and start responding to new hotties, you might find that your current relationship turns cold faster than you can blink, or even wink.

Do Unto Others
If in doubt about when to stop prowling the online dating scene, think about how you'd feel if your new girl continued to fish for dates. It's easy to become addicted to the flattering attention from a new attraction. But the reality is that any relationship requires a certain amount of commitment - yes, the C word! - if you really want it to succeed. However, if you truly don't care about a long-term relationship, then by all means keep playing the field. Just remember, a winning season requires an all-out team effort.
