With useful articles, tips and even our very own online dating coach, Lara, we are here to help if ever you should find yourself in need of some advice or encouragement.

For now, here are some top tips from Irish model Nadia Forde:

  • Stay in contact – It’s true, there’s nothing worse than someone who never replies! Letting someone know you’re still interested is key to starting your Irish dating journey.
  • Don’t be late – Arriving on time lets the other person know you respect them and their schedule.
  • Wear good aftershave/perfume – Smelling good can be just as important as looking good. It should be noted that it is a cardinal sin to show up to a date just after the gym too.
  • Don’t kiss on a first date – Well, not all the time, anyway. Some people don’t do kissing on the first date, and respecting people’s boundaries is a necessity, whether you’re Irish dating or otherwise.
  • Send that sweet goodbye text – No Irish goodbyes allowed! Ducking out on a date that didn’t go well might sound like the best way to end things – for you at least – but it can leave the other person feeling unwanted and undesirable. It’s always best to be upfront, no matter how tricky it might be.
