With the popularity of online dating, it has become quite common to go on a lot of dates with many different people. I have been on many dates in the past few years, resulting in many different dating experiences. Some of these men got it right while others were so far of it is easy to see why they are still single. Many men miss the reason women are looking for a date and do not understand the vulnerability many women can feel when they are dating someone they do not know. Here are some tips that every man should read before going ion their next date.
Keep it short and public
A first date should be in a very public place and plan on less than an hour.
No woman is going to want to go someplace private on the first date with a man they just meant online, at least not me or anyone I know. Plan on having the date in a public, yet secluded place. Plan to keep the first date it under an hour. This will give you enough time to get to know each other enough time to decide if you will want a second date. Coffee shops, ice cream shop, local farmers market or any place where the date can be cut short or extended if the spark is there.
Make sure that you make lots of eye contact during your date. This sends signals of interest when she is speaking to you. eye contact does more than get the butterflies floating. It tells the other person you are interested in them and when you doing while they are speaking it will make them feel important to you.
Keep it cheap
Don’t spend a ton of money on the date. Even if you have money to burn, don’t do it. Spending a lot on a first date implies that you will be expecting more. On the other hand, don’t be a cheapskate either. Pay for her coffee, ice cream or meal on the first date or at least offer when the bill comes. It may seem a bit old fashion but it is still the thing to do for most women.
Time to talk
You want to make sure that you have plenty of time to converse and get to know each other with minimal distraction. This will give your date a chance to get to know you as well as you to know here. When she speaks make eye contact and listen, all women love men that listen to what they have to say.
It is pretty simple to get the first date right with a little thought is put into it. Most women will go on a second date if you can hold a good conversation and make them the center of your attention. Eye contact and listening to what they have to say will almost always lead to a second date. So make sure the location you pick for the first date will allow this to happen freely.
Best of luck and happy dating!
