In the age of social media, it’s easy to think that Facebook and Twitter are going to make it easier for you to connect with women. After all, you can hook up with women, friend them on your social media accounts, and hook up with them at the click of a button the next time you want to get together, right? Unfortunately, it doesn’t exactly work like that. You can wind up making far more poor decisions than good ones if you start trying to use social media to help with your hookups. Here are some of the ways we’ve found you can mess up your social life by doing the wrong thing on your social media accounts.
Mentioning Her By Name
When women decide to meet up with men from online, they’re going to Google those men before meeting up with them in person. It’s just something women do to try and avoid getting hurt. You want to make sure she’s going to find what you want her to find. You also have to make sure that your family (and whose family isn’t online these days?) isn’t going to get the wrong idea about some girl you’re just bringing home once and never planning to see again. Go ahead and say that you have a date tonight, but don’t say “I have a date with Gina tonight” unless you want 20 messages asking who she is.
Posting Pics of Other Girls
The more pictures of women you have on your social media accounts, the more like a player you’re going to look. If you don’t want a woman to think you can’t be trusted with her for even a night, you’re not going to want to have a computer or a social network full of a bunch of pictures of other women. This news might also get around, especially if you live in a small town. Don’t make yourself look suspicious, and keep your photos of these women on your camera or phone.
Not Locking Your Private Account
If just anyone can access your account, just anyone can see all the things you post that are supposed to be private. If you want to have an account just for friends and family and another for random strangers you meet (and slags you shag), that’s fine. Just don’t let them intermingle with your parents who are just figuring out that the “status update” box isn’t actually a search engine.
Friending Everyone You Know
The last thing you want is for all of your hookups to hook up. Make sure you’re keeping the women you just met once (and only intend to meet once) off of your private page, and out of your private information if you don’t want a massive storm to start brewing. Just think: your one-night stand could be chatting with your mum by suppertime, and who knows what she’ll do with that information? It’s better not to risk it, even if it means it’s a little more difficult to hook up.
