Dating is a two way affair and a woman has to be able to do her bit to make a date a success. If a date is to lead on to other things, a woman has to put in even more effort than a man, although in less obvious ways and here are a few dating tips for women to enable you to help a date go the way you want it to. Never let your past experiences affect what is happening at present – everyone comes with baggage but if it affects your attitude you can take if for granted that the date will not be a happy one. Perhaps you do not let the past affect your mood but you do talk about your exes in disparaging terms – no man wants to her that men are rotten human beings and the one you are with may begin to wonder if he will be next on your list.
Men have set ideas about what is romantic and what isn’t so be careful about talking about your problems; no man wants to hear about why garbage collects in your street or how you cure your pimples – that is not how to create a romantic image of yourself. While many books on dating tips for women will tell you how important it is to be open and honest, keep in mind that there is a time to admit to your personal flaws and irritating habits – but the first few dates are not those times. Never get high on booze – slurring away and talking nonsense is not in the least romantic. Also, if you do get drunk, not only will you not be able to recall what you did on your date (that could leave you open to all kinds of pressures) but you will not have been able to watch his behavior for things you like (or perhaps dislike).
Do not feel awkward when a conversation pauses for a few moments – let it restart naturally and spend those few moments watching his body language or letting your eyes meet, if you want to. While it is fine for a woman to make the first move towards setting up a date, do not let a man think you are chasing him – it frightens them as they feel they are not in control and also threatens their macho image of themselves.
