Become A Pro At Dating With The Help Of These 10 Tips
For those who are into casual dating and the need for constant experimentation, I have got something for you. How many times have you tried to go on a
date but it hasn’t been that of a success? And if it hasn’t been, you might have thought that you are the problem, right?
Well, if it is really you, then know that it is something that you can certainly work on. Consider dating as a sport that you can get better at with time. You just have to get good practice, learn some tricks and know the game well.
Here are some of them, as promised.
#1 Stop treating it like a prospect for marriage.
Often by thinking that a new date can result in something permanent and special, we pressurize ourselves unnecessarily.
Think of dating as a medium of getting to know new and cool people. By lowering your expectations, you have no chance of getting hurt. Even if a romantic relationship is not in the play, you can at least look at a friendship.
#2 Improve your conversation skills.
Become better at your conversations. The best trick for it is to get hold of current events and social issues. The thing is, you may never fit the glove of the person you are trying to entice.
But have to up your game at the talking part. Watch online videos on how to talk to strangers in a better, fancier way.
#3 Be clear about your needs at the moment.
The reason why I am saying this in specifics is that not everyone is clear about what they want from a particular relationship or themselves in general.
If you want sex, make it clear on the first date. If you want a relationship, don’t settle for anything less. Settle it within yourself and then, act accordingly.
#4 Go unconventional.
Rise above the norms and make your dates as unconventional as they can be. Explore fun places to have your first date and don’t be afraid to take risks.
#5 Don’t compare your this date to that date.
What worked for others won’t work for the rest. Every date is different and hence, you absolutely don’t have to set comparisons for yourself.
Make sure that you invest a hefty amount of time getting to know your partner.
#6 Check your selfishness at the door.
In case no has ever told you, be kind! To strangers, to future prospects, to everyone you have to deal with. For it is one virtue that can take you a long way. Go to every date with a happy mind and hopes of having fun.
#7 Have honest conversations.
This is no way means divulging every little detail of your life. Just be upfront about all who you really are as a person.
For example, if you are a feminist, just let them know. And if they aren’t one, then why would you want to date someone with no common sense anyway! 😉
#8 Don’t try to control everything.
Mentally or physically, stop trying to control everything and simply let go. Enjoy the moment, rather than making mental graphs of your date.
By being yourself, you will give a better reflection of the person that you are.
#9 Be approachable.
Even if you are out with friends, smile and be approachable. Smile and be approachable when you do go out.
A smile says that you are a positive, open person. This signals to others that you are friendly.
#10 Get ready to handle rejections.
If you are in it for the long run, get ready to handle rejections as they will come. Not every first date will go on to be a second date. Dust yourself off and get back in the game as soon as you can.
