8 Ways To Help Cyber Relationships Work

By Ange Fonce

Technology has changed the rules... yet the underlying truths remain the same. 

Making friends and building relationships is supposed to be easy. 

All you need do is adapt the timeless wisdom of "How to Win Friends and Influence People" to your technologically sophisticated word and here is the point... I am finding more and more in relationships.. technology is taking over and replacing the REAL Human skills.

So here is a reminder of those "basic" Human Skills.

1... Smile With Your Body And Your Mind... 

Putting a smile on your face draws people to you... only when if is genuine... smile on the inside first... then let that feeling express itself on your face... BTW... smiling works even if the other person cannot see your face... so take heed when you are online.

2... Make The Other Person Feel Important... 

Technology drives globalization... which can make both men and women feel small... since friendship is something you give to... rather than get from people... there is no better gift than treating people as if they are they are more important that you are... which they are if you are their genuine friend.

3... Be Genuinely Curious... 

People love to talk about themselves... your curiosity gives them the permission to do so without wondering if they are being boring... this is true regardless of the medium so asking about and caring about what is going on in peoples lives is a good way to make them feel good.

4... Do Not Criticize... Condemn... Or complain... 

Nobody wants to be around a "Debbie downer" so do not let technology magnify your negative emotions... toxic emotions and words poison a friendship before it takes root and that is especially true when you can spread those emotions at light speed.

5... Be Yourself... 

It is tempting to pretend you can use social media... email and texting to present a more attractive persona to the world... also with technology people figure it out who you really are more quickly than ever... so you might as well be yourself from the start... what have you got to lose?

6... When You Are Wrong... Take Responsibility For It Quickly... 

If you make a mistake... put your hand up and admit it... do not double down and make yourself twice the fool... few character traits are more attractive than the ability to to admit error  and apologize when you are wrong.

7... Assume The Other Person Means Well... 

Remember that everybody is the hero of his or her own story... giving people the benefit of the doubt lets them be that hero in your eyes and in theirs.

8... Use Words That The Other Person Understands... 

Using fancy words in person or on line... does not impress anybody... quite the contrary it creates distance... first see the world from the other persons viewpoint and then talk and write from their perspective... not yours and I had a timely reminder of this one myself recently and to a "special lady" who I know will be reading this writing... thank you... lesson learned... appreciated and apology given.

Although more and more "Human Relationships"... are becoming "technology" based.

Do not forget.

There is still a "Human Being" there.

May You Enjoy A Prosperous And Dynamic Day!
