A lot of guys have discovered that social media makes it easier than ever to hook up with girls. This is true, but it does also come with its setbacks. If you’re going to be using social media during your hookups, no strings attached dates, and one night stands, you need to be ready for certain unusual problems that you’re going to encounter. Be ready, because otherwise you could wind up sabotaging not only your hookups and casual sex dates, but your friends and family on your social networking sites as well. Here are some of our most handy tips for how to successfully navigate social media when you’re trying to get laid.
Realize That You Will Be Googled
“She will look for you online”
When you meet a woman online, she’s going to Google you. When you meet a woman in a bar, she’s going to Google you on her phone when she goes to the bathroom. This is just standard procedure now for women; they don’t want to go home with someone who’s a convicted sex offender, and they want to make sure that you are what and who you say you are. Before you start looking for women to date, Google yourself and see what comes up. If it’s not something you want a woman to see, make sure you do something about that, whether by knocking it off the top results or contacting the webmaster to take down the offending piece of information if you can.
Consider Protecting Your Accounts
“Keep her out of you friends and family circle”
There’s the fact that you don’t just want to put out the best information about yourself, but you might want to protect your information form the girl you’re seeing. Consider how many men and women have been humiliated by someone they met coming onto their Facebook page, for example, and posting lies or slander that their entire friends and family had to see and deal with. This can be a very embarrassing thing for anyone to deal with, so consider protecting your accounts. You don’t want everyone to see this girl posting on your wall all day if she’s a one-time hookup, and you definitely don’t want her to be tagging you in photos of some drunken escapade. Consider setting your facebook to friends-and-family only, and blocking her and any other unwanted “friends” on Twitter if you have it.
Make Sure She Sees What You Want Her to See
You might think that just deleting your social media accounts is the answer to this. Think again, unless you want her to think you’re an old dad who can’t figure out how to use technology. You might want to consider having a separate couple of accounts just for your non-close friends (i.e., women you want to hook up with) so that they can see your vital stats and that you’re a real person without actually becoming friends with them in any way. After all, you might want to add them to a little black book in the future, so don’t burn those bridges.
