When it comes to digital communication, it's a good rule to avoid chit-chat and mostly stick instead to just making plans to meet in person. If they follow you, ignore it—they aren't on your level. Example: A dude I met through Tinder followed me on IG before even our first date.I mean this next statement so hard: If you don't plan to have a more permanent relationship with someone, you don't need to be linked on social media at all. It was way too strong, way too fast, and ultimately contributed to me making sure we didn't schedule a second one. But this kind of relationship also wasn't in line with the game plan we originally discussed, and it was a bummer to lose that great thing we had, even if what we were inadvertently turning into would've been great for some people, or even for us at a different time in our lives.I'm not saying you have to go out and bang everyone you can (unless that's what you want to do, in which case, go for it.Be safe, have fun, do you.), but add a little diversity to your dating roster to maintain a safe distance from any one person.It accidentally established a kind of intimacy that forever warped our situation. That's the most important part, really: Maintaining an open policy of honesty between the two of you.
All that dissolved the first time we had a sexless sleepover together. Again, the dude in the above scenario didn't do anything wrong by expressing himself and his needs.
Worst case scenario: You cool on your attraction to them, in the meantime they fall hard—for both you and your favorite cafe. The whole situations evokes a kind of intimacy you just shouldn't mess with if you want to maintain a certain degree of distance with someone.
