They say that dating is never an easy game to play and this is particularly true when you are a woman trying to find that ideal man.
From serious commitment-phobes to those guys who proclaim their love after the first date; it might seem that you are never going to find the right one for you.
We are here to help; here we present our top 5 dating tips to help you become an expert in dating and hopefully find the perfect guy for you!
Realise that not all men are the same
One thing that seems to plague us ladies is the thought that each and every man on the planet has exactly the same wiring. Whilst they have similarities, after all they are the same breed; there are just as many different types of guys out there as there are girls.
If you have had bad experiences in the past then leave them there. You might miss out on the opportunity of dating a truly marvellous catch just because you were tarnished by what happened previously.
Sounds simple, but showing your date that you are comfortable in your own skin and where you are in your life, can be really attractive.
Never try to project a different version of yourself or second guess who your date would like you to be.
Also, if the first date is successful and you move further towards a relationship, remember who you are. Changing is a natural progression when you share your life with someone but you should always cling on to those things that make you, well you.
Don’t be afraid to ask where it is heading
It might not be a great idea on the first date to ask if marriage is on the cards; but once you have settled into a few dates you should never be afraid to try and find out how they feel about you.
Sometimes second guessing whether you are exclusive can end up in heartache; especially if the other person doesn’t feel the same way. So instead of wondering if you can start referring to him as your boyfriend, just ask. That way you can be sure!
Trust your gut and never settle
This is especially true for those ladies who are feeling that time isn’t on their side. Settling for someone, or not listening to your intuition is not a great idea. Whilst you may be fine for a short while, entering into a relationship with someone that you are just not sure about can only end up in heartache for you both.
Trust your instincts and only enter into a relationship with someone that you are sure about.
Make a list
Not sure on where you are going wrong when it comes to dating? Want to pin down those all-important qualities you are seeking in a man? The easiest way to bring these all together is with a list.
Write down all those things that are important to you in a partner and in a relationship. Once you are armed with this list you can start to see if your dates have these attributes. After all, how can you expect to find the ideal man if you don’t know what you are looking for?
So there you have it, our top tips for dating in this modern world. We hope that you can use them to not only enjoy the dating experience but also maybe find yourself a meaningful relationship with the man of your dreams.
