10 Second Date Tips For Men And Women
It’s the BIGGEST complaint I get as a Relationship and self-development coach. Men don’t listen, they sure can talk without knowing how to shut up. They get angry and frustrated when they have to listen with a curious mind to show interest.
Maybe they don’t check it that often, deleted the app from their phone, or just aren’t interested. Just be thankful it happened with a stranger from the internet rather than someone you approached at the bar. Because I have never been more embarrassed on a date than when I hear horror stories from the woman about other men she’s met online. And really, most of it comes about as a result of rejection.
Mentally preparing yourself for a first date can be the difference between seeing that woman again or never, ever talking to her again. He knows how to make a woman smile and feel like she’s known him forever. He comes off as charismatic, chivalrous and easy to talk to.
Things could start feeling awkward quickly if she can’t quite follow what you’re saying. You don’t want your body language to send the wrong message, so brush up on the basics. Sitting with your arms crossed and your body angled away from your date gives the impression that you’re closed off, nervous or insecure.
It’s important that you give yourself time to heal, regardless if you were married for 2 years or 18 years. You may want to be in a relationship as soon as the court settlements are done, but you’ll be doing yourself a favor by holding off on the dating for a while. Going on dates might be your mind’s way of coping with the loss of your failed marriage, but that should not be the driving force behind your need to see other people. You don’t want your next relationship to be based on the remnants of hurt from your divorce, so take it easy and don’t rush things. This goes for any guy of any age, but it can be especially crucial for older men. Be transparent about what you want in a relationship, whether you only want a physical relationship or are looking for something that calls for more commitment.
