How to be a player dating guides for women
If you hate football don’t say that you can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon, than cheering on Bristol City. If you’re not sure about someone, it may take two or three dates before you can really decide.
And if you work part-time in a call centre – don’t say you’re something big in communications. Try not to be too quick to judge or too fussy or rigid about what you are looking for in a potential partner.
If you already know the person and are pretty certain that you both like each other then by all means go for the big romantic gesture. My husband turned up for our second date with a bottle of wine, flowers and a box of chocolate biscuits, but soon realised he only had two hands and decided to leave the biscuits in the car! Making an effort shows that you care and that you want to make a good impression.
Unwashed hair, bad hygiene and yesterday’s clothes aren’t likely to win anyone over.
Don’t tell someone that you will phone and that you can’t wait to see them again, if you have no intention of following through. Leave your emotional baggage at home If you have a huge line in exes, a past addiction to therapy and you still can’t forgive your Dad for missing your sports' day when you were five, keep it to yourself on your first date.
Too much emotional baggage, too soon, is never attractive. A first date is not the time to try out being the person you’d like to be, or the person you think your date would like you to be.
Will we have anything to talk about and if not, how will we get through the evening?
It is definitely possible to think too much about a first date.
Is this person going to be the “One” or will I want to run for the hills before the starter?
The advantage of keeping the first date short and simple is that if you don’t like each other, you haven’t got to make it through a seven-course meal together.
