Four Simple Rules All Daters Should Follow

tips on relationshipsThere are some dating rules that just work for everyone no matter what. You want to know what these rules are so that you can commit them to memory and make sure that you use them at each and every date. These are most important during the earlier stages of dating, but they apply to all dating. Actually, many of these rules can apply to life in general and when followed, can help you to be happier and more appealing to all people.

Don’t be Needy

This should be a given, but the last thing a guy wants is a needy woman. You need to embrace your independence and make it known. Do not be afraid to tell him you are busy on a certain day when you are. He does not want you constantly canceling your plans just to be with him. Keep in mind that he has a life too and will want some solo time with his buddies once in a while too. He also likes when you have your own job and can take care of yourself. Of course guys like to be able to take care of their women, but it is really refreshing when they meet a woman who has it together.

Don’t be Negative

This is not to say that you cannot be upset from time to time when something happens, but if you are constantly negative then you are going to turn off guys in an instant. When you are in the early stages of dating, your new guy wants to get to know you. He really does not care about your friend he has not met, your boss or why you hate your car. He wants to know what your passions are, your values and what you love about life. Of course you can be honest about the fact that you do not like tomatoes, but keep your vents about your boss and frenemy to yourself for now.

Let Him Pursue

Some guys do appreciate a girl that can take charge, but most guys like to be the one doing the pursuing. This is just how humans are and it is not a bad thing. Let him call you to set up the next date and let him make the first major move. Now, you can ask him out and even offer to split the check, but once you get to that date let him decide when he will call you. No guy wants a girl who texts him a dozen times just an hour after their first date. Refer back to not being needy.

Have Fun

Dating is meant to be fun. You are meeting new people and potentially expanding your social circle. This is a good thing. If you are a bit of a dork, let it shine through because he probably is too. Guys like girls who are comfortable with themselves and are able to let go and just have fun. So, smile, laugh, flirt and just be you completely.
