5 Dating Tips for Men

Dating is, well, hard. Especially if you are not that knowledgeable about what to do or what not to do. But don’t fret. I will teach you.

Here are 5 things to keep in mind next time you’re out on a date.


  1. Don’t forget your manners

If she looks nice, tell her that. I open the door as she walks through, or offer my arm as she steps down from the curb. I play it by ear and don’t go too overboard. I also make sure I remember her eye colour, and when I’m comfortable, I test the waters by leaning in a little closer as she speaks. If she backs away, well, it’s probably not going well.


  1. Be confident

Everyone’s nervous on a first date, but there’s nothing more attractive than a bit of self-confidence. When it comes to conversation, I stay in my comfort zone by coming up with a few topics that I can talk about easily so I’m not out of my depth too early. If I’m in doubt, I ask my date about themselves and go from there.


  1. Keep it casual

Drinks are fine for a first date. After all, no one wants to sit through the seven-course degustation with someone you’ve only just met especially if you both realise it’s not going to work after the entrees appear. If it’s a first outing, I head to a bar I have been to before because I’ll at least know my way there, and it’s one less thing I have to worry about. It’s perfectly ok to keep first or second dates to weeknights, but anything after the third outing together should be at the weekend. Otherwise, they’re going to wonder what you’re doing that’s so much more interesting than them. Or, worse, who.


  1. Be prepared

Your first date is a great opportunity to show her what you’re made of. And trust me, first impressions count for a lot. If you look like you’ve just stepped out of bed, your date is going to think you don’t really care. I get a new hair cut, sometimes invest in a new outfit, and check my teeth and nails are looking presentable. I always plan to arrive a little early so I’m not flustered when I walk in the door. Also, so that I will have a bit of time to give myself the quick once-over in the bathroom mirror. When it’s already time to order, I play it fairly safe by avoiding anything I’ve never tried before or that’s tricky to eat. If the foods I order involves a bib, it is best to steer well clear.


  1. Get a second opinion

If I’m a little clueless or just want to make sure I’m on the right track, I am not afraid to ask my friends for a few pointers. I see what they think of the outfit I’m planning to wear, or the venue I want to take my date to. It might mean I’ll end up dodging the restaurant that gave my mate gastro last week, or that I avoid wearing that shirt all my friends hate.


These are all just reminders rather than a lesson. Keep it in mind that the number one thing you should always do is to be prepared, be presentable and be considerate for your date.

Questions You Need to Ask When Speed Dating

When doing speed dating, you literally find questions that are pretty annoying. Why annoying? Because they are too repetitive. Question like these are like what do you do for a living, how old are you, or interests in life. One way to make your speed dating unique is the way on how you ask questions. You should likely be asking different unique questions like what kind of job would your date prefer to have, if given the chance, rather than asking repetitive questions like what do you do for a living.

One way to change and keep both of you thrilled and guessing, you can put it in a small game. Like, taking turns asking what kind of things you like, but instead, you do it by guessing. Say holding your partner’s hand and telling that they are having a rough job or do something that needs to break some sweat. Now, that’s quite entertaining. It do takes some skills but rather it makes both of you enjoy it.

 This strategy will definitely give you a bigger chance to find your perfect match-up when doing speed dating. Your partner will find you more intriguing and interesting by the way how you keep your dating partner entertained. But never overdo, try to be more polite in asking those questions or lines.

The most well remembered dates are those ones that are exceptionally romantic ones. Have you ever forget the time when you watched the coolest movie for the first time since you were a kid? We’ll in dating, the coolest movie was the most romantic. One simple trick about dating is to go casual. The more casual you are, the more comfortable your dating partner will be.

4 First Date Tips to Charm Your Date

A first date is all about making a perfect impression. And for the girl you like, the first date is an easy way to find out if you’re a charming and charismatic guy, or just another regular guy. You may have taken your time to woo this girl, and you may have impressed her enough into liking you for the guy you are. But all of that counts to nothing if you can’t be a real man and impress the girl on your first real date together. After all, a first date is the real test of a guy as a dating potential.

These are just a couple of key rules behind making a great first impression on a first date:


  1. Hygiene. If I want to charm the girl on my date, I pay close attention to my hygiene, and this includes my facial hair, nails and my breath. Bad breath is a complete no-no, and can ruin the date before I even realize it. I pop in a breath mint or a gum before I walk into the date.


  1. Bragging. Many guys assume that bragging about their job or their refined taste in cars or scotch would impress a girl in no time. But contrary to popular belief, bragging is one of the biggest turn offs for women. If you really want to put yourself out there and let her know how awesome you are, talk about yourself without coming across as an arrogant braggart. I listen to her point of view, ask her questions about her own achievements and her line of work, and when the moment comes for me to talk about my achievements, I elaborate on something only if she asks me to tell her more about it. By doing this, not only will I come off as interesting, I’d appear classier too.


  1. Don’t get drunk. Sometimes, it’s easy to get carried away and have one drink too many without even realizing it. This is especially likely if you’re nervous or overexcited to be with such a wonderful girl. If you do end up tipsy and realize it, you’d end up panicking or getting distracted because you’d be too focused on trying to pretend like you aren’t drunk. Safer bet? Just don’t have more than a couple of drinks, especially if you’re having them on the rocks.


  1. Don’t shove your point of view down her throat. You may have decided on a few things to do that night, or you may want your date to try a particular dish at the restaurant. Make a suggestion about it to your date, and you’ll seem like a great guy. But if you try to force her to do something or try something, then that’s just plain annoying.


If you think about it, these are little details that aren’t too hard to follow. And they’re really easy to use on a date. So the next time you’re planning a date, keep these 4 first date tips for guys in mind. They definitely won’t let you down!
