6.) Get set up. Ask your friends and family members if they know of anyone who might be right for you. Friends are a great way to meet people because it’s like an automatic screening procedure.
7.) When you do go out on a date, only pay attention to the woman you are with. Sneaking peeks and ogling other women when you’re out on a date is never a good thing to do. You wouldn’t like it if your date checked out every guy who turned her head--show some respect and when you’re out on your date treat her like she’s the only woman in the world.
8.) Be a gentleman. While this advice may seem old fashioned, it really doesn’t go out of style for most women. Open doors, have good table manners, walk with her and not in front of her and watch your language around her—remember, the idea is to make a good impression.
9.) Put your electronic devices away. There is nothing more annoying than a date who is constantly checking his text messages, Facebook status and gaming standings. It won’t kill you to put your communication device on mute for two to three hours.
10.) Don’t talk poorly of your ex-girlfriends or wife. It makes you seem bitter and just about any woman you date will be worried that you will speak the same way of her at some point.
11.) Look good and smell good. Women love it when a man takes care of his appearance.
12.) Curb your road rage. There is just nothing romantic about road rage.
Good luck and I hope you find the one that’s right for you!
