I'm online dating on Zoosk. What is with guy's wanting to get your email or go on yahoo messenger to chat further? They say it's for privacy - aren't our Zoosk chats private?
Thank you for your question. These little rules of love can be quite confusing!
We’re guessing that when a guy asks to go “offsite” with you, it’s his way of letting you know he’s interested in you specifically and wants to forge a more personal connection. Taking your communication off the dating site is about separating you from the many many other fish in the profile sea. You can take this as an indicator that he’s making the move toward getting more personal.
So now the choice is in your hands. Do you feel comfortable giving this guy your details? Are you interested in getting together? If so, go for it. Chances are if you do meet up you’re going to have each other’s phone numbers, at least for logistical purposes. Sending a quick text is a lot easier than finding wifi, opening an app, and scrolling through an inbox to say you’ll be ten minutes late.
If you’re still not sure, keep it all on the dating site. No pressure to make up your mind.
In general, when online dating we do recommend taking it offscreen and meeting up in person as soon as possible. He might seem so perfect in 2-D… but face to face he’s often a horse of a whole different color. Best to cut right to the chase and find out.
Have fun! Lets us know how it goes!
