When it comes to dating tips women can do with as many tips as possible. All women want while dating a man is the surety that their word is respected and they are not being taken for granted. The work towards achieving the right impression starts from the go and here we mention 15 rules regarding the first date of a relationship.
Know what's Non-Negotiable
Everyone woman has a fair idea of what is non-negotiable for them when it comes to choosing the perfect man. They want someone who understands them, is present at all times for them and is not a smoker, a monogamist or whatever they don't want.
Don't Limit Yourself
The way to go about stuff is to not limit yourself when it comes to choices. If you set yourself a criteria that sounds like a '25 year old man with brown beard, who doesn't smoke and play basket', then you are limiting yourself.
The key to having a good first date is to ensure that you don't lie and don't even imitate the truth. As a matter of fact, you need to realize that it is better for you to remain true to your word and be honest from the word go.
Don't Have Texting and Calling Rules
Avoid any texting and calling rules that you want to apply. Dating isn't a game, and if you think of it as a game then any one of you will have to end up as the loser. And, you surely wouldn't want that to happen.
Pay Attention to Red Flags
You know the flags you get when you can tell that someone isn't really right for you? Well, if you get these flags then bail out. Symptoms like your date being super shady or not answering questions are signs of a red flag.
Before embarking on a first date it is important to know yourself as a person and then work on finding out what is best for you. Building self confidence is key to having a perfect first date. Don't make bloopers.
Be Emotionally Available
Maybe your past experiences have left you in a tight corner, but it is important that you come across as emotionally available and not someone who is not willing to share emotions or even receive some from the partner.
Avoid the Alcohol
It is important that you watch your consumption of alcohol on the first date and refrain from exceeding the limits that you have set for yourself. If you cross the limits, you might put yourself in a vulnerable position.
Dating is an Exploration
Dating is similar to an exploration process and you're Dora finding who is best for you. Don't think of dating as a commitment as you can back out if you guess that the person is not worth the view you first had of them.
Know Your Sexual Boundaries
The first thing to be careful about during the first date and the overall dating process is to know the boundaries you have. Don't let anyone cross these boundaries and stick by them personally. Have no regrets in life.
Don't Hide Your Interest
Most dates get underwhelming or boring because one of the partner's decides to hide their interests and enthusiasm. If you like the person and want to proceed with the date then it is best that you show your interests and move on accordingly.
Be the Date You Want
Obviously, all of us have certain expectations from the dating process. We want the dating process to follow a pattern. Thus, to get the most is to remain true to your expectations and be the person you would want to have.
Ditch the Wish List
It's good to have a certain level of non-negotiable items in a man, but to have a dating wish list is pushing the matter to extremes. Items like, 'he should be driving this car or he should make this much' are only going to make you disappointed.
Release the Pressure
There is always going to be some pressure in a date. Seeing your friends getting married and having children can be overwhelming and can put pressure on you, which is why it is important to have fun and ditch the pressure.
Be Your Self
Any attempt at being false or running a façade will only put your own credibility at doubt and you might even end up losing a chance at being with someone who really cares about you. Be yourself and expect the other person to fall with your real self.
