As a former matchmaker, I would receive followup from each client after they went out on their first date. The most common negative comments agreed with the recent study by the Bowes-Lyon Partnership dating agency. The National Student article revealed that nonstop, self-center chatter sent the date quickly to the do-not-call-me-back list.
I recently received a message on OkCupid from an attractive, educated, interesting guy. All it said was, “Hi. Nice profile.” And he signed his name. I enjoyed reading his profile, but I was very put off by the red dot signifying that he “replies very selectively” to the emails he receives.

But what’s up with the red dot?”

They go out on a date — a date with a guy they think is so fantastic — and then after the date all they can do is think about him and what a great time they had.

Dear Dr. Doris, I’m in an uncomfortable situation. I hope there is another way to handle the problem other than personally confronting my date. I met this woman a couple of weeks ago at a party. Things were great until I asked her out to dinner. That’s when I experienced the shock of my life. She has absolutely terrible table manners. She talks with food in her mouth and she’s so animated with her fork and knife that I had visions of having a meal with Edward Scissorhands.
It is one thing to be out in the ’singles market’ today, but if you don’t know the basic Dating Etiquette, it can leave you single for a lot longer!

Guys, you may not know this, but the morning after is just about as important as the night before. Many an awesome evening has been ruined by a crappy morning. Spending the night with you and, specifically, how you behave in the morning, tells us a whole lot about what kind of man you are.
