The Ten Most Important Dating Tips For Men
Now we are going to look at the most important tips for men who are about to go out on the dating scene. This could be for the first time, or maybe you are starting out again after a long absence from dating, or you could even be an experienced dater who needs refreshing on how to be on your best form. Whichever it is, we are sure that you will benefit from these ten most important dating tips.
You need to make the most of your appearance if you are going to have any chance of success with the opposite sex. It is not necessary to look like a Greek God but you should at least make some effort with your appearance.
You are basically selling yourself as you would any other commodity. So show yourself in your best light, make sure you are clean and tidy and the same goes for your clothes. A shabby appearance is an instant turn-off for most women. (Unless you are on a Hells Angels dating site, maybe!)
If your personal hygiene is not up to scratch, this is also definitely a big ‘no’ for a woman. Starting from the top, your hair should be clean and tidy; if you have a beard it should be trimmed and well-kept and also get rid of any nasal hair, unruly eyebrow hair and hair in your ears.
Moving down, make sure that you have showered and use deodorant. By the way, if you use after-shave, go easy on it……it is possible to be overpowering if you use too much.
Trim your finger-nails and make sure that they are clean. Lastly, make sure that your shoes are clean.
- Be Confident
A confident man will attract women. That is a fact. There is something about a confident man that draws women to him. It is probably the feeling that this man will be able to take charge of any situation and protect her that omits from him. This may sound like a slightly sexist thing to say but it is not necessarily an overt display, more of an air of confidence and this is a basic human instinct for the women to be protected and the man, the protector. It’s true that you are probably feeling a little nervous, but try to act confident and you will be surprised at how well it works.
- Leave any Emotional Baggage Behind
Most people who are in their late twenties and upwards, have some emotional baggage. When you are going on a date, especially a first date, leave it behind! Your date will not want to hear about any past relationships, good or bad, and this is a sure way to disaster.
Firstly it creates a poor image of yourself and it also shows that you may not have fully moved on from the past. No women will find this attractive and she will not want to continue with someone who is still mourning the loss of someone else.
- Brush Up On Your Conversational Skills
Again, you are probably feeling a little nervous but remember that your date is probably feeling the same way. It may be that you will have to take the lead in the conversation. This doesn’t mean that you should dominate it. If she wants to talk, let her.
If you find that you are taking the lead, part of the art of being a good conversationalist is drawing someone else into that conversation. So talk about interesting things about yourself and then ask her questions about her. Everyone likes to talk about themselves so she is sure to take the bait and start speaking back to you. As things go on, you will probably find that you have some common ground and the conversation will really start to open up.
- Body Language
It is very important that you read your date’s body language. This is a skill that can be easily learned and, once you have mastered it, you will be able to use it to your full advantage.
Women, and men, are giving out signals all the time and they use their bodies to do this. Now this works both ways, of course, and it is up to you to read the signs and decide how to continue. If you are receiving negative signals, then it is probably time to call it a day and move on. If the signs are positive and you can tell that she is really into you, then it is all good and the chances are that you will be looking at another date with her. So read up about body language and use your knowledge on your date.
- Build Up a Rapport
You need to know how to establish a rapport with a woman. This basically means making a connection and showing that you are on the same wavelength as her. Of course, you won’t be able to do this with everyone but once you find some common ground together it will come easily.
Once you establish a rapport, you will both feel more comfortable with each other and want to spend more time together.
- Practice Your Techniques
You should practice all of these techniques whether it is with one special woman or if you are going on dates with several different women.
You should note the things that work and the things that don’t. Of course, you will not get it right all of the time and this is why you need to practice. Also, remember that everyone is different and what works with one woman will not work with another.
You will soon establish what really works for you and you can then work on those particular points and become really experienced in the dating game. Your confidence levels will grow immensely as well.
- Look In The Right Places
if you want to date women then, of course, you need to look for them in the right places. Just think to yourself where women congregate.
This doesn’t necessarily mean bars or nightclubs. It can be anywhere that women get together to socialize or do other things. It can be absolutely anywhere. You can meet women in cafes, the supermarket, at work or even in a launderette. Just think about it. The choices are practically endless!
- Go For It!
Last but certainly not least, you need to get out there and go for it!
There are women out there in the same position as you in that they want to meet a man, preferably the man of their dreams. This could be you so it’s up to you to take action.
Things will go wrong and you quite probably will have a few dating disasters. This is only to be expected but don’t be disheartened by it. You will learn from any mistakes and soon it will all come easy to you.
So the time has come for you to go out and start talking to all those interesting, attractive, amusing and intelligent women who are looking for a man just like you! Nothing is going to happen if you are just sitting at home, on your own, watching TV. The time has come – get out there and get going!
