Question: What is a good face to face greeting with a girl that I’ve been talking to online? A handshake, hug, kiss on the cheek? I really like her and don’t want to blow it.
A greeting is in many ways the simplest thing in the world but can seem overwhelming under these circumstances. You know the person to an extent yet have never met. So, it is natural to have some preconceptions and ideas about how things might go. But don’t. Just keep it simple. Eye contact. A smile. An open and friendly expression. Whereas a handshake is a little too formal, a hug may be premature. Go with the energy in the moment, the priceless smile and a simple, “Hello.”
What next? Once you have met your online connection in person you have taken the communication to the next level. An email, text or good ol’ fashioned phone call is best. If this contact is a person of interest, you should be well on your way to a first date. If not, this is where the communication stops.
No matter what the outcome of this first face-to-face, stay committed to the process of dating, keep your goal in mind and be open. Doing so will allow more opportunities to present themselves, and somewhere out there is your ideal match that is looking for you too!
