So, let’s answer the age-old question — is same-sex dating as heterosexual dating? Well, yes and no.

Anyone who wants a committed, long-term relationship goes through the same challenge. However, as an LGBT individual, you have different concerns and needs. You might be facing discrimination at school, work, or home. The traumatic severity of such experiences varies, but can definitely impact the self-esteem and self-worth. In turn, these experiences can affect your dating life and relationships you hold dear.

The Challenges

In many ways, the LGBT community faces the same challenges as their heterosexual counterparts. It takes time and effort to find your perfect mate, building a long-lasting relationship, strong bond, and improve the relationship over time. But that still can’t stop you from getting a lifetime of happiness. Our experts at Broosis.com have some tips that can help our friends in the LGBT community enjoy a healthy and happy dating life.

Tip #1

If you’ve been out there in the dating game for far too long and lady luck has blessed you yet, you might want to consult or talk to other people from the community and learn from their experiences. Remember, the first date carries too much anxiety, so it’s always better to prepare and do your homework.

Tip #2

Dating someone who is in a similar coming out stage. The future success of your relationship very much depends on you being on the same level as your partner emotionally. If you are not as experienced or confident as your partner, one of you might start feeling overwhelmed. On the other hand, the more closeted member of the pair can feel pressured to come out before he/she is emotionally ready. This can lead to anxiety and resentment too.

Tip #3

Be clear about your monogamy versus nonmonogamy values and practice direct communication with them. Try to clarify your implicit expectations and make them explicit. Don’t assume that your idea of cheating is the same as that of your partner.

Bottom Line

In our efforts to bring value into your life, we also want to wish you the best of luck, and may you find your perfect mate with a lifetime of happiness and prosperity. We encourage you to keep loving and keep sharing that love. There is a saying that “You Get What You Put Out Into The World.”

Online dating is not easy. It heightens the constant fear of putting yourself out there on a digital website and not knowing how people look at it. There are over 50 million single people in the United States, and every day millions of people turn to online dating to find their perfect match.

If you are one of those millions looking for your perfect mate online, then you need to make sure the person looking at your profile swipes right. There are many things you can improve to increase your chances of getting noticed and well, find your digital soul mate. Here we go!

LIST YOUR HOBBIES AND INTERESTS

Research shows that more than 64% of users on online dating websites believe that common interest is important when it comes to finding the perfect partner. This means that you have to list interests and hobbies that are fairly common among the masses. However, that doesn’t mean you start putting in vague terms like music, sports, or watching movies. Try being more specific, like taking yoga classes, knowing how to surf, or something that makes the reader want to know more about you.

THE PERFECT PHOTO

We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to put the perfect photo of yourself on an online dating website. This does not mean putting your sexiest photo ever. The photo you post is the first thing that attracts someone to your profile — it also says a lot about your personality. So, choose wisely and don’t go overboard with the style and makeup.

Pick a photo that displays the real you. For instance, if you love gardening, put a picture of yourself in a nursery. The same can be done for many activities, like reading, surfing, skiing, and more.

BEAUTY IN SIMPLICITY

Keep the language of your profile fairly simple. It should be easy to read and understand. Research shows that using simple words makes it easier for people to read, pronounce, and remember things about your profile. That makes it more likely that they’ll be interested in you. Don’t showcase your broad vocabulary; it will only scare off a potential mate.

Also, don’t be in a hurry to set up your dating profile. If you quickly set up your profile, chances are you made a few spelling and grammatical errors. Once you are done with setting up your profile, read it from a viewer’s perspective and see if it’s optimized.

BOTTOM LINE

Online dating can be a lot of fun if done right. You can always ask interesting questions and ask the reader to contact you. For example, include something like “diehard Game of Thrones fanatic, ask me anything” in your profile. Doing this will make it easier for the other person to contact you immediately.

We’ve looked at countless online dating profiles, and none of them were good enough to make someone stay and wish, “I want to know more about this person.” Our experts at Broosis took copious notes and came up with some common mistakes people make while creating their online dating profiles. These are mistakes that you should never — and we mean NEVER — repeat on your dating profile.

Too Many Group Photos

Don’t make it difficult for your potential mate to get an understanding of what you look like. If you only prefer to post group photos, you might be perceived as too shy or not confident enough to post a selfie. Before someone develops a liking towards you, it is important to see how you look. Keep it simple. Posting solo pictures works best.

Couple Photos

Regardless of who is the other person in the picture, your parents, sibling, a nephew, or a friend, STOP THIS RIGHT NOW! It doesn’t matter what you’re relationship with that person might be. The viewer doesn’t know that, and the guessing game will not go in your favor. If you don’t have decent, quality pictures, schedule a photoshoot, and capture the best angles.

Sharing a Profile with an Ex

Think for a second: why did you make a dating profile? To meet new people or stay hooked in the past? Keep in mind, the goal of having an online dating profile is to get a date with the help of posting some good pictures and a short description of yourself. Capitalize on the opportunity that the digital lords have put forward for you and don’t post any pictures that include your ex.

Not Filling Out Your Dating Profile Properly

You can’t get the right results unless you put the right amount of effort. Your future date will be interested in getting to know you. Starting the relationship by withholding information in your profile sends a negative message. If you are using a dating app, take your time and fill it with complete information. Remember, what you put into your dating profile is what you get out of it. Add better pictures and better bios, and you will get more right swipes than ever.

Hiding your face

You are beautiful! Don’t shy away from showing how you look. We want to see what you look like. Take off your sunglasses, take off your hat, and please step out of the shadow. Clear pictures of your face will leave a better impression.

Bottom Line

All in all, you need to be careful in terms of what you post on your online dating profile. A small mistake and you can lose your perfect mate to someone else. We want you to experience the perks of being in a beautiful relationship with your ideal mate and be happier than ever.

For happiness, we want our physical and emotional needs to be fulfilled. Getting touched, sex, and feeling emotionally connected have a huge effect on our physical health, life expectancy, and our overall happiness.

It acts like a second immune system by lowering stress levels. We become angry, resentful, and detached as a result of not having shared our needs, and not having them addressed. We might have a hard time realizing our needs, and when we do so, we might face difficulty in expressing them. Which makes us wonder why needs are so hard to express?

The answer is shame. We have an innate fear of rejection, which we try to avoid, and we act out of this fear by being shameful. As we grow up, we are often shamed by our elders for expressing our needs. This shapes us in an unhealthy way.

This taught us that our needs are not significant, and they are rather a burden. Also, other people’s needs trump our own.

If we cannot realize and convey our own needs, we are unlikely to get what we want. Suppressing our needs and or not having them met, results in resentment, which has the power to kill a relationship.

We can instead teach our children to notice and express their own needs, but also that they cannot always have what they want. This would show that they and their needs have value.

Exploring your needs is the first step towards clarity. If you feel frustrated, that is usually because of unmet needs. Hence, frustration acts like a sign for unmet needs, and there are some other emotions as well that act the same way. So, focus on how you feel and your bodily sensations.

Follow the signals and note your needs. Express them to your partner for a better understanding and communication. Expect and encourage your partner to do the same, hence creating an air of positive give and take. Do not be disheartened if your needs are not met even after you shared them with your loved one. Sometimes this disappointment creates more closeness when you sit and listen to each other, showing empathy, understanding, and acceptance.
