This involves some common sense.
You probably already know that DMs stand for “direct messages,” so when you “slide into DMs”, you want the other person to notice you and correspond with you.
In my psychotherapy practice, young adults between the ages of 16 and 26 with a range of problems meet with me to talk about their relationships.
Many of them use online methods to connect with a potential partner and want to know how to slide into DMs and get noticed.
In modern dating, everyone wants to know how to slide into someone’s DMs and get noticed.
Romantic relationships — hookups, friends with benefits, dating, and even polyamory — are a big part of our conversation.
After all, being in a relationship is an important part of healthy development, and of life. Nonetheless, relationships can be challenging to navigate. That is a universal truth.
Dating and getting into a relationship can be difficult for everyone.
One of the most common methods these days to meet people is through dating apps and other forms of social media.
Meeting people online is no longer necessarily regarded as creepy or as something that only losers do. It still requires caution, though, and common sense must prevail.
Whether meeting people in person or online, the basics of what, when, and how still apply. You have to consider what to say, how to say it, and if and when take it up a notch.
One of the advantages of going the DM route is that it shifts the back-and-forth over social media to a place that is just between you two. Unless, of course, you share the conversation with your friends.
