Dating is a much different game than it was 20 years ago. It can get confusing, and men are often left holding the bag wondering what went wrong. If you need a quick dating guide, here are some great tips to help you out.
Don’t Be Pushy or a Pushover
Women want a guy to be a guy, but they also want to know that they are safe. It can be a fine line to walk. You want to be a little aggressive on the date, but not overdo it. It’s a good rule to go ahead and open doors and plan the date yourself. Grab the check and reach for your wallet before she has a chance. Don’t do things like order for her at a restaurant, don’t move forward sexually on the first few dates, and don’t overpower her talking about yourself.
Grooming
Styles come and go. Avoid being too trendy on a first date. Just wear something nice and pressed, and pay attention to grooming. Make sure you are clean and presentable. A good way to plan this is if you wouldn’t wear it to church or a job interview; don’t wear it on a date either.
Impressing Her
It’s natural to want to impress her, especially when you first start dating. Renting a fancy sports car, bragging about how much money you make, and talking about yourself a lot will not impress her. This will make you look like a snob and high maintenance. Women don’t want this. They just want someone they are comfortable around, can laugh with, and be open with. The car and the bank account don’t matter.
