Dating Etiquette: First Impressions Are Everything


Dating Etiquette: First Impressions Are Everything
If you don’t know the basic Dating Etiquette, it can leave you single a lot longer!

• If you felt a reciprocated connection, give them a hug or small kiss goodnight.
• Tell them you would love to see them again (don`t wait for the three day rule to call)
• Follow up your date with a thank you call or E-mail.
• Do not say you will call when you have no intention of doing so.
• Honesty with diplomacy is always the best approach if you do not feel a connection on the date.
• Every dating experience has a story that you can learn from; enjoy them for what they give you at the time.
• Don't look at every date as a potential spouse. (Picking out china patterns too early will only end in disappointment!)

With an open mind even when a date goes wrong, it can make you see more clearly what you really "want" down the road. Everyone who comes into your life teaches you something in one way or another; don't look at it as a waste of time. You might not see what purpose they had in your life right away, but you will understand why later. (It could be about you teaching them something, which is good karma)


Regardless of what transpires, go out and enjoy your single life in the dating world. There is so much to explore and some great people to meet. Experience is everything and one of life's beautiful lessons. At the very least you may develop some great friendships down the road or learn something very valuable that changes your life forever.
