Dating for women – hints and tips
After more than 5,800 successful events all around the UK, we’ve seen most things and recently we were asked to compile our top 5 dating tips for women, so that they can understand men better and make the most of their dating opportunities.
So here goes:
Ladies don’t be shy, what sort of man are you looking for? Why not plan what your Mr Right should look like and be like. What should his appearance be like? Do you think impeccable manners are essential? What career should he be following in an ideal world? Should he be single and never have married or is divorced with kids OK? We do encourage you to make a list of the key factors and qualities that you’re looking for, but maybe 10-15 would be right rather than 150+! And think too, what are real deal breakers and what are just on the wish list but not really essential.
Where will I find him?
Is he going to pop up in the checkout queue at Sainsbury’s or Tesco? Well perhaps if you’re very lucky and once in a lifetime it might happen. If you would like to take control and try to ensure that meeting someone happens sooner rather than later, then why not consider your dating options? And maybe ask yourself some tough questions too. For instance are you likely to find a high flying executive or a business owner on a free, online dating site? And if you did, would he be the real thing? Dating events like dinner parties or black tie events or high quality personal introductions may well be a better bet for you.
Your intuition is powerful – trust it
Womens 6th sense, that intuition that we’re famous for is a powerful friend and ally within dating. So please don’t disregard it. If something doesn’t feel quite right with a new man or ring true, don’t put your thoughts and nagging doubts to one side and forget them. Use that 6th sense to find out more – be observant, do a little more digging and usually you will find out what is making you feel uncomfortable. Do use these powerful emotional abilities.
Try to take a relaxed and carefree attitude with you into dating. Don’t take it too seriously too quickly maybe. Be open minded and don’t try too hard. And if you have a few dates and then don’t hear from him again, don’t blame yourself, some men can be like that. If you haven’t committed yourself too early, then just put it down to being part of life’s rich tapestry and don’t beat yourself up over it. Rather, look forward to the next man you will meet who may just be the one you are seeking.
Maintain your circle of friends
Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket and change your life to accommodate a new man. Giving some space and getting some back can only be a good thing. So don’t drop friends to be with your new found Mr Perfect. Maintain your hobbies and passions and be yourself. He will respect you for it and it will make you a much more desirable partner too.
