Putting yourself out there can be nerve-wracking and sometimes all you need is an act of kindness and a compassionate gesture for a comfortable dating experience.

Putting yourself out there can be nerve-wracking and sometimes all you need is an act of kindness and a compassionate gesture for a comfortable dating experience. According to a recent survey by Bumble in India, emotional connection (60 per cent) and kindness (55 per cent) top the charts, followed by empathy (32 per cent), as priorities when it comes to dating someone or choosing a potential partner, post the second wave of the pandemic.

On this World Kindness Day, Bumble's relationship expert Shahzeen Shivdasani shares tips on the acts of kindness one should adopt when getting to know someone online:

Respect boundaries:
Be patient with people you are connecting with as you get to know them better. If someone has not responded to you, give them time and space to connect with you. They may have other priorities to attend to and this doesn't immediately translate to them not being interested. Give them the space to respond in their own time and get to know you when they can give you their full attention. Respecting someone's boundaries is vital.
