10 Dating tips for Gentlemen

Guys don’t be a uncouth or ungentlemanly…follow these tips

Chivalry is NOT dead

Open the car door for her, pull out her chair, walk on the car side of the street…It takes no effort to do these things, but it makes all the difference.

Relax

Don’t get caught up in the version of the man you wish you were-be the real you.

Dress well

First impressions matter, dress like a gent.

Show respect.

Show up on time, be polite to the waiter and give your date your attention and please be subtle-don’t stare directly at her boobs.

Don’t drink too much

A beer or two is fine, but no one likes a messy drunk or someone who reveals TMI (Too Much information)

Turn off your phone

Your bros are not invited on the date.

Compliment your date.

Whether it’s her hair, eyes or dress, tell her how great she looks. Giving her a compliment will make her feel good

NEVER Talk about your EX

…just don’t go there

Pay for the date

That’s right… a Gentleman pays…this isn’t a power play-you’ve asked her on a date because you like her and want to do something nice with no strings attached.

Kiss Her

If the first date has gone well and you’re feeling it then go for the kiss at some point towards the end…don’t puss out!

 

Think About This too!

Before you get a date you need to attract someone special!

Dating after Divorce

dating after divorce memeBefore you jump back into dating, make sure that you feel OK (And by OK I mean that you are happy with who you are) If you go on dates expecting to find your happiness in others then things will likely be tough for you. (men and women are often left broke and sad after a divorce) and while I’m not saying don’t date until everything is perfect…just try not to date when emotionally you know you’re vulnerable or needy

Thinking that people are like your ex.

Trust can be difficult after you’ve been hurt by an ex-wife or ex-husband is difficult.
But trust is essential for a healthy relationship…if you don’t trust people then it will destroy your chance of finding someone new.
Take some tome to work through this and put the baggage down!

Don’t rush things!

So you’ve been single and you miss feeling someone’s arms around you..yet don’t rush into things. When you get back into the dating world, take things slowly, and don’t feel bad about dating at a slower pace……you need to be able to relax a little and be yourself…don’t pretend to be someone you’re not. And don’t worry about what anyone might think of you.

2 Simple tips to enjoy the process of online dating

Here’s a familiar story:

“So I got my membership with Match.com and eHarmony, uploaded my photos and spent hours crafting a finely written profile.

It’s not that I don’t go out on dates…I usually meet someone once a week…it’s just I’ve never met the right person. Most often I meet people and feel no chemistry!

All my friends all tell me they can’t believe that I’m still single after 6 months of dating-I just want to find “the one” and end this loneliness…I hate dating”

Frustrated

It’s easy to get frustrated when you’re looking for love and haven’t found it yet! Here are 2 simple tips to help you enjoy the process of dating until you find that someone special.online dating process

1. Be realistic

It took me a year to meet the girl of my dreams, and I had to go on a lot of dates, this is NORMAL for many people, so accept that you’ll meet a lot of people while you’re looking for that perfect partner, make peace with this fact and realize that this is the way it often works.

2.Take the pressure off to Enjoy the process

Take the pressure off yourself on a date…think of it as “just meeting people”
instead of going a date with the aim of behaving perfectly and creating a great impression, be authentic, enjoy your time getting to know the other person, accept the fact that you most likely will meet a lot of people who aren’t your match and feel at ease enough to share your opinions, have interesting conversations and laugh.

When we release ourselves to the process and stop forcing it. Then we’ll have more fun and stand a better chance of meeting someone special

3 Dating tips if you’re over 60!

A death of a spouse or divorces have left many baby boomers single as they head toward their senior years.
If your over fifty, are still full of life and want to spend your remaining years with someone to love, then what can you do?

3 Simple tips

Here’s 4 simple tips to remember when dating!

Tip 1: You’re never too old to look good

It doesn’t matter how old you are or where you are going on a date , it is critical that you look your best on a date. Buy a new outfit for a date, get a new haircut and do whatever you need to do to look your very best!

Tip 2: Choose the right dating website

Ourtime.com or SeniorPeoplemeet.com are great websites to begin to meet people.
But remember things have changed since you were dating so remember that when it comes dating online, be careful before giving out your personal information to anyone you meet on the internet and always meet in a public space the first few times you see someone.

Tip 3: Have fun (And don’t worry too much about your adult children)

It’s your life and you deserve to enjoy it and have fun!valentines day dating advice 001
For many seniors with adult children the following scenario is a common one- You meet someone special online and then when you share that you’re finally dating your adult children don’t approve!
For many disapproving adult children regardless of how old they are they still feel that “you’re no longer with mom/dad”, and the thought of you in another relationship hurts them.
On a rational level your adult child may not say “I don’t want you dating,” but their behavior may reveal this!
The best medicine is to talk to them and tell them that you deserve to find love…and while
it’s tough to have this conversation is important to have…you deserve the opportunity to find love!

Being single on Valentine’s Day

A lot of articles out there

There are a ton of articles out there that tell you how to plan a Valentines’ day, on dating ideas!

valentines day dating advice 001But I’m still single

What if you’re just not feeling it?

What if you are newly single and have just ventured out in the dating world?

What if you haven’t yet met someone to ask out on a Valentines’ day date!

Simply stay away from romantic restaurants or flower stores and take it as an opportunity to treat yourself!
Buy a nice bottle of wine and plan your Valentine’s day to be for you even if it’s just something simple as watching Netflix.

Don’t feel Bad!

Most of all don’t feel bad! Whether you’re in a relationship or not does NOT who you are! Remember that there are millions of other people who are single and like being single and that there’s nothing wrong with you.

An other important thing to know

Before you get a date you need to attract someone special! What kind of first impression do you make, whether online or in-person?

A Chemistry Test during the date

I love this post, for 2 reasons!

1: It’s a short post
2: It works!

Have you ever not been sure how your date is going? and by that I mean that you’re both having a nice tie but you’re not sure that she/he is attracted to you!

Here’s where body language comes in…

Simply do a “chemistry test” and lean into towards her/him just a little bit- (Be subtle and not too obvious here!) and then watch what she/he does.

If they lean away or  steps backwards then  they are most likely not feeling it.

If she/he lets leans towards you, then most likely there might be a little bit of chemistry…

5 First date tips!

First dates can be anything from fun to stressful or boring!

Let’s make sure you’re dates in 2014 are successful with these seven first date tips:

1.Show respect

Dress sharp, show up on time, be polite to the waiter, and give your date your attention.(If you have to keep your phone on (If you have Kids or a friend waiting to call you just in  case the date goes bad) then put it on “vibrate”.

2. Never talk About Your “Ex”

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER talk about your Ex.
While I’s easy to talk about your Ex on a first date-because both of you have ‘that terrible Ex in common. Don’t do it!
The idea of a date is to have fun and get to know someone a little better…while later down the road you can discuss past relationships, now is NOT the time…First dates should be drama free and fun!

3. Don’t Interrogate your Date.

It’s a date not a job interview!
I’ve heard many people give the advice that tells you to ask your date lots of questions and listen attentively but remember to allow your date to get to know you too.

4. NEVER Get Drunk

Many of us have been on a date when the other person get’s drunk-it’s no fun at all- remember first impressions count so make a good one.”

5. Relax and be you.

Relax and be you…never try to impress your date and never try to be what you think your date will like! (It’s way too stressful!) Be honest about who you are and what you do.

3 Tips for Finding someone special in 2014

If you’re reading this then I hope you’ll have your best year ever and find someone special.
Here’s 2 simple tips to get you started

1. Make love a priority without urgency.

We’ve all heard: “When the time is right the right you’ll meet the right person.” But “we’ve also been told to “Go out and make it happen”

I think a balance between these 2 points of view is a healthy balance.
Resolve to go out and meet people AND look online so that you have a better chance of finding love, and don’t force it…(forcing things is way too needy) the trick is to take action and spend time letting things unfold

And when you go on a first date don’t already start examining if you could spend the rest of your life with them. Don’t go there!…There is way less pressure just getting to know your date…learn more about a new person, not just fall in love with a romantic fantasy.

2. First impressions count.

Before you get a date you need to attract someone special! What kind of first impression do you make, whether online or in-person?
Online, having great online dating photos is the most important thing you can do when dating online, we all look at the photos first! so visit LookBetterOnline and and see how with great profile pictures we can help make your online dating experience successful and more fun than you thought possible!And your profile is well written- If your personal look could use some improvement, then do it whether it’s new clothes or hairstyle..

2. Confidence is key

Confidence is key! And I don’t mean cockiness…I mean the confidence to be authentic!
If you’re nervous about a first date then you might want to try some exercise an hour or two prior to getting ready and going out (Often being in your body will get you “Out” of your nervous mind)
And when it comes to talking- stay in the comfort zone by coming up with a few subjects that won’t get you into trouble (And AVOID at all costs Politics or Religion!…I know obvious eh!)
If you’re not sure what to talk about then  ask your date about their life, listen and go from there.
Also don’t forget there’s is a fine line between being confidence and cocky – nobody likes a cocky guy who is too cool, so keep it real

Ways to feel more confident:

Don’t slouch!
Take a couple of deep breaths and Stand or sit  tall! Pull your shoulders back  and pick your chin up No one looks confident if they are always looking down!

Slow down and take a breath
When you get nervous, your voice goes up and you’ll talk faster than you realize.  These are two dead giveaways for lack of confidence…so breathe deeply and relax…It’s not a race to impress her!

I’m a fan and a friend of Fran Greene

Meet Fran

Last week Fran and I were catching up on the telephone and I asked her to share an article for my blog…here it is…enjoy

Top ten flirting tips guaranteed to make you a fabulous flirt.

What is flirting?
Flirting is a wonderful icebreaker and tension reducer.
Flirting is testing the romantic waters. It’s the best way to make a connection with someone.
Flirting is a great way to let someone know that you find them interesting, attractive, fun or appealing to you.

10. Flirting is an Attitude:

A great flirt is self confident and not afraid to take a risk. Be enthusiastic and positive, it works!

9. Start a Conversation:

The best opening line is saying hello! Talk about the surroundings, ask a question, ask for help, or state an opinion.

8. Have Fun:

Be playful, light hearted and spontaneous. Let your sense of humor shine through.

7. Use Props:

Never leave home without a prop. Props are natural conversation starters. They encourage conversation and others will be compelled to start talking to you. Amazing props include dogs, kids, unusual jewelry, a fabulous scent, a sweatshirt with your favorite passion, an eye catching tie, or an interesting book or magazine.

6. Be the Host:

Change your behavior from the role of guest to host. You are not the passive person in waiting, but rather the welcoming committee.

5. Make the First Move:

Move closer, pay a compliment, make eye contact, or say hi to the person you want to meet.

4. Listen:

You have two ears and one mouth because you should listen twice as much as you talk. Practice active listening. Your flirting partner will be drawn to you. Everyone loves to be listened to!

3. Eye Contact:

Make eye contact, but please look your flirting interest in the eye gently, no more than 2-4 seconds, look away. Don’t stare – it’s a turn off.

2. Compliment:

Compliment your flirting partner. The best compliments have the element of surprise. The “flirtee” will know that you really noticed them. Your compliments must be honest, sincere, and genuine. When you receive a compliment the best response is merely thank you.

1. Smile:

It is contagious! It will make you so much more approachable. A smile lights up your face and it will draw people towards you. You will be a people magnet! Try it.
