Of course, when we think we have found the man for our dreams, we tend to do everything that can to keep him. However, one should remember that the dates (especially the first one) is not just about developing his views or opinions about you. It’s about knowing the basics of each other and deciding whether you both want to give this relationship the green signal or call for the red flag. Therefore, even if you’re already falling head over heels for him, don’t forget to wear your “woman’s hat” during the first date, so you can make a good decision. Here are 5 dating rules for women heading into their date:
Dating Rule #1 Confidence Is Key
Why is it that the bubbly and confident girl next door always seems to attract the most amazing guys? The answer is simple – men are naturally by nature drawn to women who look and feel confident about themselves. Until the moment you show him that you are confident in your own skin, he won’t treat you as you would like to be treated. Of course, everyone has their own baggage, but you don’t want to be bringing up yours on your date -unless you want to completely put him off! Sharing your agony, sob stories, or any other negativity (especially on your first date!) will make a terrible impression and portray a person that the guy doesn’t want to get involved with. Moreover, why do you want to spoil the fun with negative talks? Positive people attract positive people so make sure that you choose sensible topics when on your date.
Dating Rule #2 Dress For Yourself Always
Of course, you want to look your best, but that doesn’t mean you have to go overboard choosing an evening gown that is way too over the top! You want to make sure that you are comfortable and are being true to yourself -so reflect that image with what you choose to wear. The last thing you want to do is to dress up making a huge effort and then creating expectations of this being your ‘normal’ self. To be honest, most guys prefer less make up and the more natural anyway so don’t feel the pressure to wear something you’re not comfortable in.
Dating Rule #3 Let The Man Initiate The Conversations
This is one of the best dating rules for women that will help you looking reasonable in all sense. It’s not to say that you don’t contribute to the conversation, or wait in awkward silence until he says something, but its to prevent you from dominating the entire conversation and hardly even letting him get a word in! Women can talk(!), and in many cases find it far more easier than men but you don’t want to sit there talking about yourself throughout the evening and not even getting to know the guy! Let him initiate the conversation rather than talking out your list of doubts and curiosities back to back. It will help him feel more comfortable and not feel as though he is on trial about to answer 50 questions.
Dating Rule #4 Don’t Jump Conclusions On The Very First Date
A lot of women have the habit of jumping to conclusions far too soon. Yes, you need to be able to judge your instinct, but you also need to give the guy a chance! Many women start losing interest as soon as the man shows up in a funny looking tie. Don’t be that shallow woman! You can’t make judgments on someone’s capabilities to love and respect you by judging his attire or first few sentences. Give him some space and time. Let him get comfortable with you and make sure you keep things going until the last conversation of the night. The decision making process can be put on a hold until you reach home.
Dating Rule #5 No Sex On The First Date!
No matter how much he’s charmed you with his personality and intelligence; it is always a good idea to avoid getting intimate only after just a few dates -especially the first date. Getting intimate too soon can affect your ability to make the right decision for your future. You don’t want to be too emotionally involved which will compromise your decision as to whether or not you want to be with him or not. Furthermore, guys respect women more who don’t just sleep with them at the drop of a hat as if you want a serious relationship, you don’t want him to think of it a purely sexual.
Now that you have the checklist for things to do and not to do, it shouldn’t be too difficult to make your date an enjoyable, memorable experience. These 5 dating rules for women, when practiced will make the date smooth sailing.
