Posted in: , , ,

It is true that technology should simplify complicated processes like dating and hookups. Sadly, this rarely the case. Circumnavigating the maze of hookup apps can be quite confusing and daunting, right? Wrong. Not if you know what to look out for in one.

It is liberating to know that you can hook up from the privacy of your phone or computer. But this liberty can make you sloppy about important things. You can make mistakes that could have easily avoided. And who wants a life further complicated by a hookup app? No one.

If you would like to know how to maximize your experience on your app and what hookup app mistakes to avoid, then the following five tips will serve as a good guide for you. Life is too short to waste your time on fruitless endeavours. Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

Mistake No. 1: Selecting The Absolutely Wrong App For You

Contrary to popular opinion, there is no one size fits all app. Each app is tailored to suit the needs of specific people. Before you download that hookup app, do a little bit of research. What does the app offer? Will it meet yours 100%? Or does it have only 20% of what you’re looking for? It is pointless to download a primarily dating site when you want a hookup and nothing more.

Read reviews to get an idea of the pros and cons of each app, Then you’ll save your time and energy and sanity. In addition, you will be less disappointed with the results.

Mistake No. 2: Downloading and Signing Up On Very Many Hookup Sites and Apps

As the old saying goes, too much of anything is bad for you. Yes. The same is true for hookup apps. As much as possible, resist the temptation to experiment with all the apps in the store.

Having too many apps will force you to spread yourself thin. In the end, you’ll be overwhelmed and you probably wouldn’t have achieved your goal. While it is safe to have a number of options, too many choices can give you a headache. Choose a few. Choose wisely. To increase your chances of meeting the right person for you, get an app that will make your focus on your goal. Alternatively, sign up on a few of the best hookup sites available and concentrate on one at a time. Being distracted might ruin your chances of meeting your desired match.

Mistake No. 3: Forgetting That Quantity Trumps Quality

There are a plethora of apps out there, but not all of them are fantastic for you. It is best to find a well-designed app, especially one with fantastic reviews. Ensure the people on the platform have similar needs and goals as you. It doesn’t make sense to download twenty poorly-designed apps when you can download and make the most of one reliable, high-quality hookup app.
 Never forget to choose quality instead of quantity.

Mistake No. 4: Disappearing For Long Periods

No one expects you to stay logged onto the app for throughout the day, throughout the week. But you will have to find time to be online. Even in hookups, some people want to get to know the other person a little before they agree to meet physically. No one wants to meet with a serial killer, a crazy person or a fugitive. And the only way to learn more about the other person is through a series of conversations. You’ll have to spend a good amount of time chatting with the person you’re interested in. Disappearing for long spells will only give the wrong impression about you. And chances are that you will lose whatever little spark or chemistry you created.

This is one good reason why you should download a hookup app that you’ll be excited about using. If you hate your app(s), you’ll find reasons to never log on. With an app, finding the right hookup is made easier and faster. The ball is in your court, though. Your job is to make sure you are online as often as you can.

Mistake No. 5: Slow Down and Pay Attention

In order to make the most of your hookup app, you have to pay attention to each feature, each post. When you hurry through the pages, the features and the settings, you miss a lot. In fact, you could miss a chance to hook up with someone great just because you have sped past them.

Romance experts say that it is dangerous to judge a person by their profile picture. Perhaps you should take time out to read about their interests, their line of work and their needs. Who knows what you might find? Besides, some people have been disappointed to find that the person they have met don’t look anything like the profile picture they posted on the app.
