Tips for a successful date

The following tips can be followed by you so that you can enjoy more dates and develop meaningful relationships and connections.

1) Portray your true self


It is important that you present your true self online as well as in person. Women like men who portray themselves accurately. You must be honest about superficial things such as height, appearance, age interests etc. as trust is necessary for any successful relationship.

You must communicate openly about your beliefs, how your nature is, and your views on love and life in general. Your date must have an idea of who you truly are before meeting you so that she can make an honest choice of whether you are truly right for her.

2) Treat women like a gentleman


You may need to treat your date like a complete gentleman. You must date responsibly and also take care of your appearance and hygiene. You may need to be well mannered, courteous, polite and respectful in your words, actions and behavior.

Take the time to learn about her likings, her nature, the values that she stands up for and viewpoint about life and your relationship. Also, share your thoughts and your viewpoints with her. Do not rush into having sex, take time and get to know each other and spend quality time with each other. Let everything happen naturally and spontaneously at a sweet pace.

3) Be honest with your date


Do not make false promises to meet the person or call them if you do not intend to meet them. False promises and empty words create false hopes and are very hurtful. It’s better to be honest in this situation. You may tell them that you loved spending the time with them, however did not feel a romantic connection. You can also wish them luck for their future.

4) Ask women out for a date first


Women like men making the first moves romantically, so if you are interested in a woman you can ask her out. You can contact her based on the information you find on her dating profile. You can talk to her about common interests, ask her about something that is different about her, or complement her for something that you really liked in her profile.

Do not use sexist remarks and avoid using any vulgar or profane language. A woman may not respond positively if you send her creepy messages.

5) Focus on her nature rather than her appearance

focus-on-herDo not focus too much on a woman’s physical appearance, age and vital statistics, and be open towards her other qualities as well. Women are wonderful, so instead of focusing on their looks check out their inner beauty and nature.

6) Be thoughtful


You should be considerate and care for the feelings of the woman you are dating. A woman must feel that you care for her and want to keep in touch with her. If you do not call or contact women between dates, a void develops in your relationship. Women love it when men think of them between the times they meet each other. You can call her up or send a text message letting her know that you miss her. These little things really matter a lot to women and can make a huge difference.

7) Have Patience


You must be patient while dating as short-term urges may impact long-term happiness. If you rush things the chances of dating turning into a long-term relationship with a wonderful woman are sabotaged. You can approach dating as a journey to find a meaningful and long-lasting connection.
