Have you met someone special using online services? Is it marriage related? You are not the only one. Are you thinking about visiting this person?

Online relationships are becoming more and more popular nowadays due to its many benefits and especially low cost.

If you have found a special girl anywhere in the world and are planning on meeting her, maybe you would like to consider the following issues in order to help you control your emotions and have a chilled and smooth first date.

Anyone in your situation would be feeling the same way – and there are many people who are!

1. Honesty and sincerity.

It is a general rule that people don’t like to be told lies. This is disrespectful and can easily be a reason to end up any relationship. When you break someone’s trust is very hard to get it back.

You should be very honest with the other person from the beginning and ask them to be honest with you as well. Don’t lie about yourself in your profile, to lie in a profile is so not cool.

Someone who gives fake information should expect to get false information back. No relationship can be based in lies. Being honest to yourself and to the other person is your best choice. If someone doesn’t like us for who we are, then that person is not for us. It is as simple as that.

2. Managing your anxiety.

It is absolutely normal and human to feel nervous and anxious when we are going to meet someone we have been only communicating online. Think about if you are nervous so is your girl going to be.

We tend to worry too much about how the other person is going to react to us, if this person is going to like us. One main issue becomes in this point what we are going to wear for this date and people often end up overdressing.

We need to remember to be ourselves and not try to pretend to look like a different person. Try and remember your date is nervous as well. This will help you manage your emotions and you won’t start getting cold feet. You won’t be acting strange because you are so nervous.

3. Your first date in person.

This overseas meeting with your girlfriend is going to be your first date person to person, and it may feel very different. It is not the same to interacting with a person online or in the phone than meeting them personally.

Our comfort level may not feel the same, and we are anxious and excited. Everything is new and different. You can always be friends if you find you do not have that same feeling when you meet. Chances are you are going to have a great time.

4. Breaking shyness by picking the right place.

Sometimes we get to our meeting with a girl, and we feel shy. This can affect the performance of our date and destroy any other previous progress we made in the past with this person. An idea to break shyness in a first date is by choosing a place where you can both be active. This will keep you in a good and relaxed mood, and interacting, and having a good time.

Why not think about something a little more active than just a romantic dinner, for example, skating, bowling and mini golf are some activities to do before dinner. Meeting somewhere comfortable means you can dress relaxed too. Save a formal dinner for later, maybe.

5. Positive attitude and smiles.

Positive people attract positive people. The decision of going to a foreign country to meet a girl must be based in positive desires. If you are going to go there, go and be positive and confident about it.

You cannot just go ‘to see what happens’. You must put effort, sincerity and positivity into your mind and behavior to reach a positive result. Lowering expectations and being positive will normally bring great results

To feel emotionally balanced, is important to be honest always with yourself and to be happy about what you are doing. Make your best to try and go for it. If you don’t feel very secure about yourself, you could be meeting the person who is going to change all that.
