Just like standard real life relationships, online relationships involve tending, to develop over time, get to know
eachother, and build a trusting relationship. Here are some quick development tips.
1.Invest time and make time available. Does your online date touch base with you on a regular basis? Do you do the same? Disregarding these online encounters can be conceived as ill-treatment and become very damaging to the relationship you are trying to start, therefore handle each other’s time with respect. If it’s inadequate, it may mean that it’s time to move on.
2.It is important that communication needs to “feel” right for both of you. Whenever one of you becomes too pushy about getting together, for example, that may give out bad vibes and the other person could become more distant. Therefore do not rush a head of where you both feel the relationship is at. Be sure to make time to find out more about one another and build up trust.
3.Respect each others privacy. Do not share personal email addresses or digital photographs online, for instance, if your online date sent you the information in confidence then you should not be sharing it with anyone else.Show your respect in your conversations, and listen to what the other person has to say.
4.Participate in special online and offline entertaining times and events. Online – send out greeting cards to
eachother, with special or silly messages that will make them smile, and links to your favorite places. Upload
digital photos of your favorite pet, or places to visit or have visited. download music and video clips to share
with one another, then post them on favorite forums of interest. Offline- if you’re exchanging addresses or post
office boxes, send eachother print greeting cards and postcards, or even small items from your area (like a key
chain with a goofy saying). Get creative, and use your imagination.
Tend your online relationship. Water it with care and over time it can sprout and grow.
