Dating can be surely a tricky thing and there are a lot of questions that pop up in a guy’s head when he has to go on a date with a girl. Questions like Where to meet? What to wear? What to say? Who will pay the bill? How soon to follow up? To help you find the answers to these questions, we have compiled 5 dating tips of do’s and don’ts for before and after a date.
Be yourself and be Honest
Try to be as original as possible. Don’t try to flaunt yourself or showoff about things you are not into because sooner or later, things will come out as they are. By being original you won’t have to try too hard to impress her in terms of your hobbies or your routine activities. Be honest and be proud of who and what you are. Lying won’t last for long and if by any chance you both get attracted to one another then also she would be attracted to the person you showed her and not the real you. Thus originality and honesty is the best policy.
Be careful of your First Impression
When planning to go on a date, every guy wants to look like a celebrity. Guys spend on clothes, accessories, perfumes and what not, but trust me…these things don’t matter much. Be presentable, that’s what matters. No girl likes a shabby guy turning up for a date or a guy too dressed up like he’s going for some wedding. Dress simply, wear what you feel comfortable in because sooner or later you are going to speak up something and everything will be leveled at that time only. Show your manners, speak up clearly, be on time and be presentable.
Meet up at a place where both of you would be comfortable.
Fixing up a meeting point can be a dilemma for guys sometimes. Try to meet up at a familiar place where both of you feel comfortable and can spend some time together in peace where there is minimum distraction. Manage your finances; go to place which you can afford and in which both of you are comfortable rather than keeping it showy. Look out for restaurants, coffee shops or cafes rather than pubs or bars and about the billing part, try to decide on mutually rather than trying to force the bill on yourself.
Talk it out
SWITCH OFF YOUR PHONE. TALK!! A Date can get boring if both of you get out of topics. Avoid conversations on Ex’es. Ask, find out mutual topics you can talk about but please leave out politics and religion. Be confident; praise her about what you admire in her, put in some humor; make her smile. I know girls like someone who can make them laugh but you are not a joker so don’t overdo it. Don’t do all the talking yourself. Let her also speak, know her views then analyze how similar both of you are. The more you guys talk, the more chances are there for both of you to get along.
Last but ‘the’ most important… RESPECT!!!
Respect her and yourself. That’s the thumb rule of everything, then be it dating or relationship. Think, analyze and then speak. Don’t say anything which hurts her or her sentiments. Keep the eye contact wherever possible. Your actions might be louder than words. Don’t look beyond her neck unless you plan to gift her a diamond necklace. More important is to respect yourself. Don’t get tempted to just fall in a relationship and agree on everything she says and let the things fall into place. Follow up respectfully; don’t flood her fb or mobile with texts and calls after the date. Wait and follow up.
Someone special said…. Go with the flow!! So guys….just keep these things in mind and go with the flow.
