Top Ten Dating Tips

Dates don't have to cost a fortune. Plan out your date so that you interact together, and talk a lot about each other.

Ten Dating Tips You Need To Know

How can you avoid that first (or second or third) date from being a bad experience? Plan to have a great time and leave very little to chance.
  1. Always make sure the person you are chatting with is who they say they are, even if it means making an internet voice call using IM or Skype.
  2. Keep the drama of your personal life out of your conversations, at least for the first few contacts. You’ll certainly scare the person away if you become a real drama queen in their eyes.
  3. Clean clothes and a freshly scrubbed face is a great place to start with your personal grooming.
  4. Listeners make great conversationalists. Ask open ended questions and keep the conversation matter light.
  5. If the date or conversation isn’t going well, have a prepared escape plan, and use it.
  6. Let friends know who you’re meeting, even if it’s only in an online chat. When things get intense weird things can happen so your friends and family should have an idea who you’re spending time with online and in real life.
  7. Smile… it’s true, when you smile the whole world smiles with you. Laughter makes moments light and fun, learn a couple of jokes and practice telling them.
  8. Be aware of current events. If it’s local news, your favorite movie stars, or books you have recently read, conversations continue without awkward pauses when you have things to talk about that are of interest to you and the person your are with.
  9. Don’t be desperate. We have all had ups and downs in our social life, you need to remember that the lows are followed by better times. If the person isn’t right for a long term relationship maybe they’re not so good for the short term either.
  10. Remember to have fun and enjoy the moment. Don’t go beyond your comfort level but don’t be afraid to try new, safe, things.
Bonus Tip: Dates don’t have to cost a fortune. Plan out your date so that you interact, and talk, a lot. Think museums, bowling, local restaurants, art galleries and other nearby places of interest. The movies can wait for date number 5.
