How to act when first dating
Listening is important, as it shows that you are interested in what she has to say. On your first date, you don’t want to get into an in-depth conversation about why you don’t enjoy your job, or other issues you’ve been having.
Yes you do have to be serious sometimes, but in the early stages of dating, have some fun. It’s best to stay away from the conversation altogether.
It’s time to throw out the rule book on timings and texting after a first date. If you like him and you enjoyed the date – let him know.
You don’t have to arrange the second date right away, but sending a short message thanking him and saying you had a great time will send him a positive signal.
It’s these little signs that will let him know that you’re still thinking of him.
If after about three of these messages he hasn’t replied, then it may be time to move on. We all have our different quirks and we all have a history.
So if you don’t meet up again, you’ll have a full diary to look forward to – and if you do meet up, lots to talk about.
Whether it’s how fast your relationship is moving – or how slow – the more you communicate, the better you’ll understand each other.
There are endless questions that can spin around your head before, during and after a date, which is why we’ve compiled a list of some top dating tips for men, to help make sure your date is an ultimate success. Now all you have to worry about is turning up on time. If she’s asked you to pick somewhere, help cut through those nerves by arranging to meet up in familiar territory. Although, maybe avoid your normal Saturday night pub, as bumping into your mates could be a little distracting on your date.
If it feels like a while since you last spoke, take the initiative.
Send him a funny picture, invite him to an event (perhaps related to what you both spoke about during your date) or just message saying “Hey”.
