How to Enjoy Dating
Although dating is not rocket science, the experience sometimes feels
like science fiction. Often, unrealistic expectations lead to needless
dating drama. The following steps provide actual ways to make dating a
pleasant experience for both of you.
Stop complaining. The good ones are not all taken. If they were, you would be sipping mai tai on a beach with your beloved right now.
Be less critical. Are super models breaking down your
door begging you for attention? Are moguls whisking you away to Spain
for tapas? No? Perhaps, it's time to accept a date simply because
someone was lovely enough to ask you.
Use your manners. Please don't be rude. Saying please
and thank you will make moms proud and endear you to your date.
Promptly returning phone calls, whether or not you plan to accept an
invitation, is appropriate and respectful. "Coy" is for the fish.
Be confident. Just be confident and show your characters and all your best side to your date to get a great impression.
Step outside of your box. Insanity is doing the same
thing twice and expecting a different result. In other words, every time
you tick off your list of "must haves and can't dos" you limit yourself
to dating similar people. Has that worked for you so far?
Have original date ideas at your disposal. These can
include physically active dates (such as mountain biking or rock
climbing) to creative dates (such as going to a pottery or ballroom
Have fun! Even if you're 10 minutes into the worst
date ever, a sense of humor goes a long way. Every hideous detail can be
used later to regale your friends with laughter.
- Turning a first date into a second date can happen if you remember
the following: say thank you; treat someone the way you would like to be
treated; and smile.
- Be yourself and be polite.
- Turning someone down with aplomb can happen if you remember three things, say thank you, be clear and use empathy.
- People can be creepy. Stepping out side of your box does not mean
ignoring your gut. If a person or a situation doesn't feel right, trust
your instinct and move on.
