When you finally find someone that you want to date, are you presenting yourself in the best way possible? When dating are you dressed properly, are you bringing a positive attitude and are you asking the right questions?
Some people go on multiple first dates and never get that much-desired second date. Some people are sabotaging their own dates and do not realize it. The way you present yourself is very important, whether it be your wardrobe, the way you articulate or even your personality. Unfortunately, some of us do not know dating etiquette.
I am sure some of you are asking what etiquette has to do with dating. The truth is etiquette has everything to do with dating. When you want to find your ideal partner, it is best to get to know who you are as an individual. Yes you know who you are but have you ever met someone that seems to meet all your requirements and then things go terribly wrong; it is always easy to blame someone else for the things that you see wrong but have you asked yourself what you’re doing wrong.
It seems we are not willing to do the work that is needed when in search of our ideal partner. Making an effort to get to know someone has seemed to disappear, although attraction is important it is much deeper than that. Some of us are dating multiple people and becoming exhausted when they are not taking the time to find out what it is going to take to make it work.
You cannot go on a date and ask someone what size is his penis or what her breast size is, how much someone earns, or makes demands about what you expect him or her to do. These types of questions are definitely not going to land that second date. Some people are thinking more about sex instead of the big picture.
Do not go on a date dressed poorly, it is ok to ask someone else’s opinion. If you are not sure what to wear ask someone that you trust. A date is like an interview; you want to wear the right outfit ask the right questions and have a great attitude. Remember to make it fun and light; while it is like an interview, ask smart questions. If you are not sure what to ask, you might want to ask yourself what you want from this date before going on it. If necessary make a list of questions and ask your friend if they are appropriate, you do not want to blow it if you really like the person. Dating is not that hard when you make the right decisions. Always remember; what you say and do is a reflection of who you are.
Do not go on a date thinking you will be rejected, if someone has asked you out, that should confirm that he or she is interested. If you have been rejected and have fear that your date will not be successful; it will not be. Leave any negative experiences in the past; it is not a good idea to bring past baggage on a date. People do not need to know how an ex treated you and if your date asks about your ex, it should be a short answer and not an ex bashing session, that could make you appear to be holding on and are not ready to move on.
If you have a bad attitude and are rude you will not get a second date, you need to get your mind right before your date. Being nasty or rude is not going to make your date more attracted to you, if anything the date may be over before you are ready for the night to end. Be careful about what you say, do and how you treat your date. Everyone gets nervous; just relax again if someone has asked you out half the battle is already won. In the end people want to meet the real you, sometimes being too real could land you in trouble, I’m not saying lie about who you are, however a little editing will not hurt.
