Let’s make one thing clear: dating is all about having fun and enjoying the experience. When you are dating, and want to meet the girl of your dreams, you have to put yourself out there. You have no short cuts and keep dating until you find someone right for you. Sometimes it will take a while, but in the end, it’s always worth the time and effort. However, just like most things, dating also has rules. If you want to be successful daters, you should abide by these rules, so that you don’t make these common mistakes that can ruin your date.
Below are five things you should be doing on the first date:
1. Ask her questions
The best way to know someone new is to ask that person questions. So, ask your date a ton of questions to get to know her better. But, remind yourself that you are dating a woman, not interviewing for a job. So, ask your lady questions related to her and the date. And, trust me, everyone loves to talk about themselves.
2. Get dressed up
It is important to present yourself appropriately if the situation requires it. After all, the first impression is the best impression. Whether it is a date or a job interview, it is important to put yourself together all the time. You don’t want to attend a job interview wearing a shirt of your favorite basketball team and jeans. Because that’s not what you should wear on job interviews. Wear your comfy clothes while hanging out with your friends while watching your team play. But, when you are going on a date, dress-up. Wear clothes that make people think you are going to impress someone.
3. Confidence is the key
Unless you have high self-esteem and confidence, having a girlfriend will be extremely hard for you. Confidence is important when you are looking for a relationship. Women want to date men who love themselves and sure about what he really wants in his life. They don’t want to date someone who feels insecure and always doubting himself.
4. Be informed
Women feel attracted to guys who are smart, confident, and sophisticated. Ladies prefer men who can bring something special and unique in the relationship. But, you don’t have to be a millionaire or a rocket scientist to do that. Just be yourself and be informed of what’s happening on in the world.
5. Be open and honest about your feelings
Honesty is the best policy. Most men, while dating a woman, tend to become someone else that their date will like. In other words, guys turn into “Mr. Perfect” for her. But, sooner or later, your partner will find out who you really are because you can’t continue forever with this charade. Don’t be a wimp and hide your feelings when you are dating someone casually. If you are dating someone, ask for what you want on a date. Be open and honest about yourself. Life is too short to keep your thoughts and feelings hidden. So, if you like someone, be true to yourself, and make her aware of it too.
