The dating tips are probably something that we all discuss time and again but still they are well worth your time! Just keep in mind a few essential tips on successful dating and you are half way through. Have a bath: The mere sight of a man with a straight out of the bed look might put off any girl. Hygiene plays a very important role in dating, so never venture out looking dirty and disheveled. Do not forget that body odor and bad breath could be serious date busters as girls are instantly turned off by all these; it might also leave an impression that this is your usual style, Girls mostly fail to see beyond their nose and though they have their fair share of bad hair days, they fail to notice it. Be punctual: Do not commit the grave mistake of turning up late for a date ! It might create a negative impression of being erratic in your prospective mate apart from the sourness created by you by making her wait for so long. In case you are planning to pick her up make sure that you reach there 5 minutes early. Do not make it too early as she will only be half through her make up and never ever even think about turning up late! Be polished in your behavior: How you present yourselves is what makes all the difference. Appear refined and polished in all your moves and words by letting her in first and drawing a chair out for her. Remember women fall head over heels over anyone who treats her like a lady Shower her with compliments: Shower her with compliments that would make her confident about your love towards her. These one-liners work magic on your relationship and the best part is that you are not losing anything by saying to her "you look beautiful" Lend an ear: Do not jump the guns while she is talking; be attentive and patient. You can very well put your queries to her but first give a patient hearing on what she says. Any woman would like to talk to someone who is interested in their talks. Plan the big day: Do your ground work properly and prepare the questions you would like to ask her and the things you would like to know about her, lest you will be star gazing all evening with no topic to build your conversation on! You can add a film or a drink so that you are never out of topics. Who will loosen the purse strings? Well, it is a sticky wicket indeed. The safe bet would be to opt to pay; but these days women like to take the lead and in case she insists, let her pay. You can very well offer to share at least half the bill amount to sound courteous. The Goodnight Kiss: Many women would look forward to a good night kiss as you part after a date but some are not very mused with the idea. So, wait and watch her movements and body language and when you are confident that both are ready, go for it. It is not sensible to have sex on the first date itself but here again some girls would like it! Keep in touch: If you plan to meet her again then you can collect her number and tell her that you will be calling her. But what if you are not interested to take it any further? Just wind up the date with a plain good bye, smile and depart. If you are interested then let her know about it.
