Dating is easy. It’s like Advertising. In three days, you’ll find your perfect match. Just follow these rules, whether you’re looking for a lifelong companion or just a fling. Here are a few tips to start:
Define your expectations. Why are you dating? What are you looking for? Do you want a lifetime commitment, or do you want to live completely in the moment? Whether or not you’re seeking a commitment can make a difference in how you approach dating. Don’t go out looking for a one-nighter.
Be selective. Don’t just date anyone who shows a speck of interest in you. Despite what everyone says about not judging a book by its cover, people who are more discriminating tend to be seen as more desirable, probably because having standards shows that you value yourself.
Make a good first impression. You want this person to enjoy the date, but you also want them to enjoy you as an individual, so be considerate and charming without looking or acting like someone you’re definitely not.
Be interested and interesting. Don’t exaggerate or boast about your credentials, successes, etc. Just tell them what you really enjoy in life, what gets you excited and what you leap out of bed each morning to pursue.
Be honest. If you are not ready to be in a committed relationship, let them know straight away so that you do not give them false hope.
Go proud and Be memorable.
