If you’ve been corresponding with a woman through an Asian dating online service for a good while, the subject of meeting in person is likely to come up.
When is the best time to take this big step? Is there ever a time that is too soon or too late?
Typically, it is a good idea to start making plans for your first “in person” date once the two of you have been corresponding for about six months to a year. At this point, the two of you should have a good idea about each other and feelings will have usually become stronger. This is the perfect time to meet face-to-face for a couple of reasons.
You want to “strike when the iron is hot” because Asian dating online is a little different from traditional dating; there are plenty of uncertainties when you correspond with someone over the Internet. You might be communicating with the love of your life, but if you don’t act on it at the right time, you might miss your chance, especially since the two of you are so far apart. If you wait too long to meet in person, one of you might start considering other choices. After all, you haven’t even met yet!
Another issue is that too much online correspondence might create high expectations or a burnout and result in negative feelings when you do finally meet. Corresponding for an indefinite amount of time might make one of you feel as though you are simply pen pals rather than romantic partners. This can be disappointing.
Therefore, if you’ve been dating online for anywhere between six months to a year, this is the time to start discussing your first meeting in person. Good luck!
