It can be a fun experience or a nerve-wracking debacle where you find yourself wondering why the heck you even tried to do it in the first place. Dating is sometimes harder than it should be, but when done right, it can be quite wonderful and exciting.
Multiple questions can spin around your head before, during and after a date. Dating can be a tricky business, as you figure out what to wear, where to meet, what to say, how soon after your date should you call among other questions. We have compiled a list of some dating tips to make dating a successful affair.
1. Make first impressions always important
Your ripped jeans may be a good body fit, but remember this is the first impression your date gets about you. Yes, you should never try pretense of being someone you are not, but your partner would like to see how you take pride in your appearance. It doesn’t mean you have to dress to kill. If you are a man, having a shower, shaving and using Aftershave and putting on something suitable can go a long way to creating lasting impressions.
2. Explore the non-explored
You never know where you are going to meet the next person you shall date. If you only have a single hanging spot, its time you look for other spots. Having a single hangout locks you out on several potential partners. Plenty of couples have met at a movie shop, market centers, dancing spots among others. Love can come up anywhere so be open and get out for adventure.
3. Be open minded
Please do not ever assume that you are going to the nicest and the best restaurant in the city. Sometimes, your partner may not take you to all the places you would wish. They may bring you to less classy or less adventurous place to see your reaction. Foods served at those locations may not be your best taste. In such a case, the best thing to do is to be at ease. Be open minded for any circumstance.
4. Know the non-negotiable
Non-negotiables are the instant deal breakers in a relationship. He might be a smoker, a cat-lover, etc and trying to change these instantly tells you are wasting your time. Look at those things that are not negotiable in your partner and try to work your way around them, by appreciating the aspects or trying to live with them. Try not to include physical or financial attributes. Always focus on character traits, values and personality types. Habits can be changed but it takes time to change them.
5. Be confidence
Confidence drives the devil away! Women rate confidence highly when it comes to choosing a gut. If you are a little shy, practice beforehand talking to people who you don’t know. While on a date, pick a subject that you are enthusiastic about and talk with others. Women shall sense your confidence as you talk passionately about issues. Many people are also shy about their appearance due to their height and physique. However, note that people just comfortable with the way you look.
6. Don’t play it cool
In most scenarios, we have all been told that guys love the chase. However, according to research, that is not true. In reality, men get more attracted to responsive women and women who initiate things. They are attracted to those women who are kind and warm straight from the beginning. That doesn’t mean women should always be ready to please men, but they should be fine and ready to respond promptly. Being kind is a huge turn on so forget all that you have been told about being evasive.
7. Keep conversation fun
Try to keep conversations light-hearted. On your first date you do not want to get into a conversation about why you don’t enjoy your job or other issues you have been having. Women want a guy who can make them laugh and have fun. Talking about your ex is a dangerous zone. Turn off your phone and avoid disturbances. Offer to pay bills and be kind. When it comes to follow-ups, follow up correctly. If you don’t want to see the other person again, don’t play games. Put it up in a kind way to avoid others getting hurt by false hopes.
