Dating through social media

Dating through social media

Hey guys, I am back with another blog post and this one is about how I think dating through social media can be a very good thing. I have had both good and bad experiences with dating through social media but I feel like there are so many positives and I want to discuss them in this blog post. I would also love to know about your experiences of dating when social media is involved and say how your confidence was affected as a result of your experiences. Let’s get right into this blog.

My storyΒ 

When I first had Twitter I had spoken to girls but never dated any. However, since I have had Twitter a 2nd time I feel like I’ve either been talking to or dating girls. I went into my 3rd relationship and that was with a girl who had messaged me on Twitter from Leeds. We stayed miles apart eventually proved to be the stumbling block and we split after 4 months but at that point in March 2016, this was still my longest relationship. I had then spoken to a couple of people after that but I never spoke to anyone and dated them until my girlfriend that I am still with called Sophie.

I started speaking to her on December 19th, 2016 and then met her on January 6th, 2017. I am so glad to say that we have been together ever since and things are going really well still. I never imagined being with the same person for 20 months but I am so lucky to have Sophie because there have been so many good things that have come from our relationship.

My self-confidence boost

I have become massively confident in my own ability since I have dated on social media. I feel like this has come from just listening to someone else’s perspective of me and from them being able to see things that I couldn’t see before. My girlfriend Sophie is my biggest cheerleader in everything I do too and this is why she’s been great for my self-confidence.

Building social skills

I feel like even chatting on social media can help you express your feelings and build up your social skills. I feel like I am great at talking and holding conversations now compared to before. I do still have a long way to go but before I couldn’t express my feelings at all or even approach people to start a conversation so I know the progress I have made is massive.

My final thoughts

I have so many good things to say about dating through social media. I will say one thing though and that is to only do it when you are ready and be patient with it as you are definitely not guaranteed to get everything spot on the first time. I would also love to thank you for reading and supporting my content. Remember to comment below with your social media dating experiences too. Have a great day.

  1. Nice story πŸ™‚ I met my future husband in 2006 on an email pals website (not quite the social media era yet!) – online is a great way to meet people you wouldn’t normally find in everyday life.

  2. I met my boyfriend on social media. We’ve been together 5 years and now living together. Our journey has just begun 😍 it’s amazing how many people you meet who have the same interests yet so far away and from completely different lives
