Tip # 17 – More Dating Tips
It goes without saying that being single; you will experience many first dates and many new experiences. Stay happy and strong through all the new adventures you encounter. Evan a bad date can be a growth experience. Think of it as another brick in the foundation of the “new” you! Today, I will share more dating tips. Please remember my number one advice on dating…Have Fun!
1. Do not discuss exes, politics or religion on a first date. This may seem elementary, but, it bears repeating and remembering. Singles in America did a survey and found: 74% of singles did not want to hear about exes, 62% did not want to talk about politics and 54% did not want to discuss religion.
2. Go on a first date with a positive attitude and have fun. Evan if there is not a second date, consider each date as an adventure and an opportunity to have a good time. Take any pressure off yourself about what might be “next”. Try to stay mindful and in the moment.
3. If you are meeting someone from an on-line site consider a meeting place that has valet parking. You really know very little about this person and I feel it is safer. It also makes the end of the evening less awkward. Do you want someone walking you to your car in a dark parking lot? I broke this rule of mine one time. My date walked me to my car and he felt there was chemistry between us, I DID NOT. As he tried to kiss me, I quickly got out my keys and jumped in my car. Had I valet parked I would have prevented yet another uncomfortable moment.
My best dating advice is to stay positive, love yourself and treat yourself with respect.
