How’re you doing today penguins?
After a round of general Facebook dating etiquette in our last post today is … another round of the same, in part 2 of our How to Propose a Girl on Facebook series. :D
Propose a girl on Facebook Rule#6. Stop over-posting
Three status messages a day is not cool. You don’t want to tell her that you’re a bored jobless soul spending your life on Facebook (and if you ask me, this goes for everyone – trying to impress a girl or not). 3-4 posts a week is what is optimal, if you ask me. If your posting urges get the better of you, 1 per day should be your upper cut-off.
Propose a girl on Facebook Rule#7. Don’t over-interact
Those of you who’ve been following this blog for some time would be familiar with this re and re-re emphasized relationship rule of mine:
Women want men, not boys.
Slavish over-eager behaviour will never get you the girl of your dreams. Liking and commenting on every single status update/photo of hers screams, “I’m desperate!” Not the message she expects from the confident, self-sufficient and mature guy she’s looking for. Engage in public interactions only when you genuinely have a thought to convey.
Propose a girl on Facebook Rule#8. Disagree … in style
This is an extension of my earlier point. There’s no need to agree with each status message of hers (assuming she occasionally makes posts that one can agree or disagree to, in addition to the regular “had a great weekend with friends” ones :D). That speaks of the kind of slavishness she detests. Every now and then (again, not every time) politely show her the “other point of view” if you can. Personality, independent thinking and confidence in one’s own judgements is a combination more women than you think would die for.
Propose a girl on Facebook Rule#9. Don’t over-socialize … with her girlfriends
Don’t send friend requests to other girls on her profile. Take it from me – she will visit your profile and check out common friends.
If she finds her girlfriends gradually adding to that population, she’d mark you as just another guy out for some casual thrill of online dating.
And stop replying to your messages.
OK, she might. :D
Propose a girl on Facebook Rule#10. Don’t propose her publicly!
Breach of privacy is the first thing that causes strife between people on Facebook. Do not post anything publicly on her profile that conveys your more-than-friendship feelings to her friends before they’re conveyed to her. Follow the general thumb-rule of playing safe so far as your public interactions with her are concerned.
The bad news is, that’s the end of the Facebook dating etiquette sessions. The good news is, we’d now go on to talk about some really creative ways of proposing a girl on Facebook.
In the next post. :D
