Dating Tip #1 – Establish texting boundaries.
Ask for a call instead of a text. Decide how much texting you are comfortable with, if any at all. Stick to the boundaries you’ve established. Avoid the temptation to text every day. There is plenty of time to get to know each other on the date.
Dating Tip #2 – Call or have a face-to-face conversation about what you want.
Share your deal breakers. This will avoid confusion.
Dating Tip #3 – Take dating seriously.
Prepare for it. Know where you are going. Make reservations. Be prompt. Dress nice. Keep it light. Conversation should be easy. Each date is a gradual unfolding. Don’t tell your entire life story on the first date. Avoid talking excessively about previous relationships. Be polite and put your phone away. Your date will appreciate your undivided attention.
Dating Tip #4 – If you are on the conservative side, it’s best to steer clear of sexting.
Sexually explicit text messages can create a false sense of intimacy. In addition your sexts could accidentally be sent to someone else. Remember, that “Lets hang out” or “hook up” messages are not dating. Be unwilling to compromise if you are looking for a more traditional date.
Dating Tip #5 – Believe in yourself.
The person you are seeking is also seeking you. Don’t get discouraged. Get your game on or groove back and go for it. Ask for what you want. It’s just a date. The good news is if you have a great time, you can do it again!
