When you take the time to look through the massive database of singles on a dating site in the Netherlands, it may be overwhelming by just how many people there are to get to know.
This is especially true with regard to women, who receive many generic messages from guys and after a while simply stop reading them, finding it both frustrating and disappointing that even the more educated and accomplished guys don’t put a little more effort into that initial contact.
For instance, if a woman says that she is shy at first and it takes her a while to warm up to a person she meets, you could say that you don’t think it’s a bad, and that it’s quite natural to be shy at first, and it’s probably better than the other extreme – being too outgoing too early on, before you even know who you are dealing with.
It’s much easier to write to a woman who lists a number of interests or hobbies in her profile.
Dating is a precarious thing, as some people have dates lined up for weeks to come, while others go months, maybe even years without ever finding someone that they’d like to spend more than 10 minutes with, let alone a whole evening.
Fortunately, there is always the option of being proactive and joining a Dutch dating website and trying the growing trend of online dating in the Netherlands.
