11 Tips for a Successful Date
Follow these tips and I guarantee your next date will be a success!

Take your time:
Give yourself time to discover how you feel about this person and how they feel about you. You can’t rush a relationship or take it faster than the pace at which each of you is comfortable with. Enjoy savoring the moment.


Learn to recognize the signs of unequal attraction:
Try and learn to read the body language of your date.  Look at what they are telling you both verbally and nonverbally. Try and be honest with yourself. If you sense your attraction to them is not really reciprocated, don’t force the issue. If this person is not right for you, save your energy for someone who is. And if you’re the one who is less interested, don’t be rude but don’t lead them on either.

Follow up from the date:
If you are interested in seeing this person again, don’t play games. Call them, ask them out again or return their call if they call you first. Don’t make the other person guess where you stand. Be honest and communicate. There is nothing ruder than unreturned phone calls.


Try, try again:
Dating can take practice. Learn from it and don’t get discouraged. The more you get out there, the more opportunity you have to meet others. When it is right, you will find that person that sees how special you are.  Remember your great qualities and lead every date with those qualities you feel best about. If you feel it and believe it, it will shine through.

 

Dating can be tricky, but with these tips you are now on your way to a successful and enjoyable dating experience!
