Dating Tips For Him (Men)

Keep an open mind​

They say that within five seconds of meeting someone, you already form an opinion of them. Do not let that opinion stop you from getting to know someone. You cannot know everything you need to know from spending five seconds with a person. You need to at least give them a chance! You never know if they might be having a bad day or if you might have caught them at the wrong time.

Sometimes, you will find yourself drifting in and out of conversations. A first date is not the place to do this. It doesn’t matter if your date is boring! You need to give them your full attention until the very end. Otherwise, you haven’t really given them a fair chance, have you? It wouldn’t be nice if they weren’t listening to you, so try
to remember that

Don’t talk too much about the future

During your date, you will talk about all kinds of things, like where you grew up, what your upbringing was like, and your hopes and dreams for the future. It’s a great time to really get to know the person you might end up in a relationship with, but it’s not the time to ask about their five-year plan.

Don’t talk about your ex

One topic that should never be discussed on a first date is the ex-files. It doesn’t matter how much they screwed you over or how much better off you are without them. Talking about your ex on a first date will only make your date think that you’re not over them yet. No one wants to play second fiddle to someone’s ex. If it accidentally pops up, talk about them briefly. Otherwise, just skip it.

Don’t be afraid to eat

So many girls think that they have to eat like rabbits on a first date. The truth is that men like women who can eat. Stop ordering the garden salad when you’re clearly hungry. Order the steak!

Please remember to use your manners

It’s actually surprisingly easy to forget to use your manners on a date, but that doesn’t mean that you’ll get away with it. If your date is picking up the bill, thank them for it. It’s that simple. A person with good manners will be remembered over someone who can’t even be bothered to say please when asking to pass the salt

Ask friends and family for their honest opinion

Maybe you love to wear baggy clothes and think you look great in them, but that could give a different impression to other people. Asking your friends and family for their honest opinion can really help you out when it comes to first impressions and appearance.

Be gentle with yourself

First dates are hard! Sometimes, you hit it off with someone. Other times, you don’t. This isn’t a reflection on you. A first date is basically two people who don’t know each other sitting down and talking. It can go either way. If it doesn’t work out, don’t take it too hard.

Be interested in your date

If you want to have an interesting date, you need to appear to be interested in them. If you’re staring at your phone and hardly answering questions, you’re not going to have a good date. If you’re not interested in your date, either start asking questions or end the date early.

Be good at date

Whether you’re the guy or the girl, try to show off your best side. Don’t embarrass your date by dressing badly or turning up late on a date. Behave well and learn to be a good date.

Keep the date personal

If you want to know what to do on a date, stop thinking about what others think. Plan the date keeping your and your date’s interests in mind. Do you both like a band that’s playing in your city? Would your date prefer to try a new cuisine? Would you prefer to play it safe and just go for coffee? Plan the date keeping your intimacy levels and comfort in mind.

Get some alone time at the end of the date

Getting some alone time with each other after the date is the perfect way to evaluate it and see if it has any potential to go forward. After the date, spend a while talking to each other, be it in the car or while taking a walk on a lonely street. If you’re lucky, a lot can happen right there.

Be charming

Have a pleasant conversation with your date, and keep the happy conversation going. Talk about yourself, and help your date know more about you without them having to prod you for details

Make her laugh

If you don’t have an effective joke in your back pocket, tell them a funny story instead.
