Cold approaching and online dating both have their advantages and disadvantages.
With cold approaching, you have the advantage of seeing the girl face to face and getting an instant sense of how she is reacting to you through her body language.
With online dating, you are interacting through cyberspace, hence you do not have the visual real time advantage that you would in cold approaching.
You may feel more comfortable with getting that instant visual feedback when it comes to cold approaching than having to wonder how the girl is reacting to you through an online dating site.
Instant visual feedback can be an advantage in a number of ways.
For one, you can have a good read on whether the girl is liking you or not by using some of her body language cues as your guide.
You can also use the tone of her voice to determine whether she is enjoying her conversation with you.
If she sounds agitated, you instantly know that she is not feeling you.
If she sounds giddy and happy, you instantly know that she is being open and receptive to you.
In cold approaching, her posture can also help in giving you an idea as to how she is reacting to you.
If she leans into you or gets closer to you as you are talking to her, there is a good chance that she is really enjoying her interaction with you and wants it to keep going.
If she stays aloof from you or is only addressing you from the side, there is a good chance that she isn’t enjoying her interaction with you and may want you to keep your distance.
Also, in cold approaching, you are able to determine some of her mannerisms that may indicate nervousness.
If she is constantly biting on her lip, looking down or has her shoulders slumped, there is a chance that she may be more of a shy person and is nervous.
On the other hand, if she continues looking at you straight in the eye, nods her head at you on occasion and keeps her shoulders straight, there is a good chance that you are interacting with a confident girl who may even have some alpha traits in behavior.
These are all elements that you can pick up on when you are cold approaching that you can’t really pick up on when you are interacting with a girl on an online dating site.
However, this being said, an online dating site still gives you an advantage of being able to communicate with a lot more girls at one time than you would when you are cold approaching.
When you are cold approaching, you can only focus on one girl at a time.
This means that if she ends up not liking you, you will have to move on to the next girl and work on her.
That is precious time you have now lost while talking to only one girl.
With online dating, you can actually talk to multiple girls at a time.
This means that even if an interaction doesn’t work out with one girl, you still have multiple other opportunities with several other girls that you are simultaneously talking to on the online dating site.
This allows you to use your time more wisely by spreading the risk across multiple girls.
Also, online dating gives you a lot more background and insight to a girl than you get when you are cold approaching.
You can use a girl’s online dating profile to tell a lot about the girl.
You can use her online dating profile to get an idea on whether you have things in common with her and what she loves to do with her time.
You can use this information as your ammunition when you send her the first message.
In essence, online dating helps in giving you a head start with each girl that you choose to contact because you will have information about her through her online dating profile.
You can then come up with a strategy for each girl that you are going to communicate with based on the information that you have learned about her.
This gives you an increased likelihood of succeeding with her because you may be able to connect with her on a topic that is very dear to her and thereby instantly win her over.
In cold approaching, you have no information about this girl.
Thereby, your chances of connecting with her based on a shared experience are a lot less likely.
Again, both cold approaching and online dating have their advantages and disadvantages.
It may be best to try them both to the fullest in order to truly determine which one best works for you.
